Album of the Day

Adrenaline

High school friends Chino Moreno (vocals), Stephen Carpenter (guitar) and Abe Cunningham (drums) formed Deftones in Sacramento in the late 1980s and in the time since have become one of alternative metal's most respected bands. The group's Maverick debut, ADRENALINE, took a while to take off but eventually rose to platinum status; as bassist Chi Cheng explained, “We've been together for almost eight years, on the road for two, and we do it with honesty and integrity - and the kids can tell.” Cut in Seattle with producer Terry Date, the set has the raw energy of a young band but also displays nuanced instrumental work and surprisingly sophisticated influences on its 11 originals, including such favorites as “Bored,” “7 Words” and “Engine No. 9.” Released 25 years ago this month, ADRENALINE is a blast of excitement that remains true to its name.
