Editors’ Notes

The massive, sludgy guitar stomp of opening track “My Own Summer (Shove It),” coupled with Chino Moreno’s whisper-to-a-scream vocals, launched Deftones to stardom. But the Sacramento band’s talent goes far beyond that breakthrough lead single. Around the Fur is a hydra-headed, alt-metal monster, with the explosive, rocketing “Dai the Flu” and the emotional fireworks of “Mascara” showcasing their diverse array of musical tricks. It’s a vein-bulging, blood-pumping assault of shredding guitars and hammering drums that knocks the wind right out of you.

Customer Reviews


totally in my top three of deftones albums!!! it's a great album with some of their best songs like my own summer,be quiet and drive and lotion just to name a few.

Metal or Hardcore

This album makes the 2nd of several twists in Deftones lineup. Personally I think this is the last of the metal sounding hardcore which is really what this band sounds like at the end of the day. Every other albun release to date does not sound anything like the root albums consisting of Around the Fur and Adrenaline. White Pony marks the point where the music forever changed mixing ambient with experimental. The signature volcals are amazing on this album.

My personal fav

Around the Fur is my fav deftones album. Honestly I can't take a roadtrip without it. Their newest album is incredible as well.

They chose the name Deftones and began playing out locally shortly thereafter, going through several different bass players...
