WHAT! I ahve a sick taste in my mouth now because of this post!
Deftones are discusting. NO WHERE NEAR KATATONIA-FACT. The new song hurts my ears. That guys voice can only do one thing..whine. Jonas's voice can vary A LOT. Deftones music is usually played to put petit children to sleep. Oh soo boring...

The only fact is that you're message is disgusting.
First think than write. This is the right way it goes.

I agree with the fact that Deftones will never sound like Katatonia and the other way round!

Minerva ain't the best Deftones song but I believe that the new album is a hammer! Deftones always bring the deepest emotion into a wall of sound ->Minerva!

But this is useless: I'd never come on the idea to compare Katatonia and Deftones and I like both the most! (apples and oranges) Point!

Deftones aren't horrible. But yes, they are kinda repetitious. Tool is better. And Minerva is quite dissapointing, I hope the album is better.

I had a cd from Deftones and it's all angsty guys in their 30's dressing like 17 year olds trying to sound all tough and stuff.
That's my opinion

Why? Because he tries to compare the Not-to-comparable or cause the Deftones should get their own forum...?

Tool aren't better than the Deftones, they are far, FAR worse. Tool have about 5 good songs and a whole fucking heap of boring, mundane, mediocre songs. They are easily the most overrated band of our generation.

Finally someone agrees, although for me the number would be even less.

Yeah, you just cannot compare Deftones to Katatonia.

BTW, the new Deftones album is a disappointment. I just do not know how to feel about it. Minvera, the single they released, is a complete piece of trash. Their first three albums were all relatively good, too, especially the last one White Pony. It tries to be emotional with a wall of sound (Deftones style), but instead of being emotional it just becomes repetitive. Why they chose that song to represent the new album is beyond my comprehension. It is by far the worst song on the entire album. And the entire album is just choppy. It's like they couldn't decide what direction they wanted to go in.

As for Katatonia, they are brilliant and continue to be brilliant with every album. Not many bands can match the same desolate, hopeless, and decayed feeling that radiates from "Discouraged Ones."

Yeah I just bought, and giving it the first spin now, no tracks are really standing out, Minerva was a little better on second listen, but still not a strong "single" track, I will give it a few more listens before comparing it to the other albums though

After listening to it twice, I am pretty disappointed with the new album, it is so flat, and monotonous, no tracks are really memorable, what a disappointment.

I will give it more spins before writing it off though.

Please do. It's really a great album in my opinion, and it took about three listens before I reached that conclusion. The drums are incredible, and although Chino doesn't sound particularly good, he's still bearable.

I wish you guys would grow out of the nu-metal phobia, especially considering Katatonia's new album. Deftones are amazing, and I think some of you should really try to give them a chance instead of hating them just because they are a different style of music. If you have listened to them and don't like them, more power to you. But at least give them a chance.

Well, the latest katatonia sounds a bit like deftones (only in the guitar parts) because some songs are tuned in C.
Then, deftones are under the nu-metal act but they still not nu metal.
They are more that sad/hevy thing.....

Katatonia are the best band in the world for me. Deftones are not.but they are really good musicians.There is to take in consideration that katatonia are into the european/goth rock/metal scene, deftones are into the american/crossover scene.

This is relevant.

After all, yes Minerva sounds a bit like some viva emptiness's songs.
But some members of katatonia used to listen to deftones, I think to remember, they wrote in their profiles in the old look website.


Katatonia forever.

I think a lot of you people that dislike the Deftones have either not heard White Pony or just gave it a once over and rejected it. The Deftones are far from being just a dumb american band. I dare anyone to listen to songs like Digital Bath, Change, and Passenger and tell me those songs don't drip lots of emotions. In many ways the Deftones and Katatonia are of like minds. Both bands have singers that are heavily influenced by the Cure. Both bands try to create emotional soundscapes with their instruments. And last but not least both bands have evolved to become something more then they originally started out to be. Sure the argument can be made that the Deftones aren't as talented musically but also think about where the Deftones came from and where Katatonia has come from. The parallels between these 2 bands are astonishing and undeniable.

I've been listening to the Deftones in my teen years. One of the nu-metal bands that I can actually like. What's this guy talking about how they sound like Katatonia. They're not even close. That Minerva is one of the weaker songs on thier new album. Their new album sounds like a cross between their Around The Fur and White Pony albums and I enjoyed it. Deathblow and Bloody Cape (heavy shit *drools*) are one of the better songs on that album.

I saw the video on Much yesterday, and it doesn't even remotely resemble Katatonia.
