My Top 15 Favorite Deftones Songs

deftonesrocketskates

If it’s a secret now, it won’t be anymore. It’s pretty obvious Deftones are my absolute favorite band, and they have been for many years. They’ve released 7 studio albums, starting with 1995′s ultra-aggressive Adrenaline, and their most recent album, 2012′s Koi No Yokan.

Many people have asked me, since I have a near-obsession with the band (I call it passion) what I’d choose for my 10 favorite Deftones songs. But I can’t choose only 10 – I’m going with 15. So, here goes. There’s at least one song from each of their 7 albums, as well. Check out the list after the jump.

Interview: Dale Stewart of Seether

seether

We’re rolling out more of our Uproar Festival coverage from the weekend – and we’re stoked to bring you this latest interview with bassist Dale Stewart of Seether! Their new album, Isolate and Medicate, is out now, and if you happened to see them at Uproar Festival, you’ll know they’re one of the best bands to see live. Why, you ask? It’s simple. They get on stage, rock out, and then get off. No tricks or gimmicks to be found with them – releasing albums like Disclaimer and Karma And Effect have put them up on the top of the heap for years now.

You’ll want to check out the interview after the jump, as Dale and I spent 15 minutes talking about the new album, and their stage show, among other things. Special thanks to Dale for giving me some of his valuable time!

Interview: Escape The Fate

Escape The Fate play the O2 Academy, Bristol.

Uproar Festival was certainly a fun time this year – newer bands like Within Reason and 3 Years Hollow combined forces with established veterans like Seether and Godsmack (who never ever get old) to create a fun rock tour. The lineup may be down slightly from previous years, but the lineup was still plenty to keep a fan’s attention – especially me.

What’s even better is that I had the opportunity to interview the hilarious guys from Escape The Fate. Their most recent album Ungrateful is the latest in a string of solid releases, though, in this writer’s opinion – it’s their best. Check out the interview after the jump. It’s not so much an interview as it is a fun time on the band’s bus right before their set – but the end of the interview is absolute gold if you’re trying to make it in the music industry. Be sure to jam their newest record, Ungrateful, in stores and online everywhere.
