Deftones Unveil Heavy New Song, “Genesis”
Deftones have made good on the promise they made earlier this week to deliver a new song called “Genesis” today. It’s the second single from their new album, Ohms, following the title track. Ohms comes out next Friday, September 25.
“Genesis,” like the album’s first single, is a heavy track that makes good on the band’s word Ohms would have some heavy bangers, and it’s also not without the band’s requisite atmospheric touches. The song comes with a trippy, black and white performance video that shows the band members playing the track amidst flashing lights and other old-school visual effects.
Earlier this week, Deftones unveiled their very own Instagram filter that utilizes augmented reality to render the eyes from Frank Maddocks’ album cover artwork onto whatever the user decides to place them on.
Frontman Chino Moreno recently said that guitarist Stephen Carpenter was much more “engaged” this time around than on their 2016 album, Gore, with drummer Abe Cunningham adding that “Stephen’s guitar tone is so damn thick” on the lead single. Carpenter had said about the previous album that he “wasn’t too interested” in the material the other band members brought to the table, explaining “It wasn’t the style or the sound I was hoping we would take. It wasn’t what I was expecting or wanting.”
