When I interviewed vocalist Eddie Hermida in October 2015 (read here), the band was opening for Korn on its self-titled album’s 20th anniversary tour (read review). Produced by Ross Robinson—the producer of the new Suicide Silence album, as well—that album changed the face of metal. Even in the Mitch Lucker-era, the band showed its admiration for Korn, as the band’s 2011 album, The Black Crown had obvious influences. But this new album isn’t strictly influenced by Korn—it takes Robinson’s body of work, combined with Suicide Silence’s vision, and the band undergoes a complete metamorphosis. (more…)

With any luck, active rock radio will have a whole new batch of Taproot songs to play from Plead the Fifth, the band’s appropriately titled fifth album and first for their new label home, Victory Records.

diamondeyesThe last decade was a crazy one for the Deftones. After the commercial breakthrough of 2000’s White Pony, the band nearly broke up during the recording of 2003’s self-titled album and then took three more years to release the uneven Saturday Night Wrist. The band planned a quick follow-up called Eros, but the recording was scrapped after a car accident left bassist Chi Cheng in a coma. Combine that with frontman Chino Moreno’s battles with substance abuse and work on side project Team Sleep, and the band’s future seemed up in the air. (more…)
