Editors’ Notes

Though Chino Moreno’s project Crosses looks and feels as though it’s draped in the shroud of Nine Inch Nails and shares the skeezy, blood-colored sweat of witchhouse poster children Salem, in truth much of this collection makes would go on great playlists with the likes of The xx and U.N.K.L.E. Once you get past the stadium-sized electro-dance rock of the first few tracks (which aren't too far removed from Moreno’s Deftones), there’s a seriously sensual vibe to tunes like “Thhlyghst,” “Trophy,” and “Frontiers” (among others). Using electronics to paint alluring, slow-moving soundscapes along with Shaun Lopez’ soul-chilling guitar washes and warm acoustic flutters, Crosses have a way of evoking density where none exists, showing a corrosive heart where really it’s pulsing quietly, waiting. “The Epilogue” pulls off the heady trick of mixing a big-radio feel with an intimate shade of indie rock, as does “Bitches Brew.” The latter is underpinned by beautifully doom-laden shards of guitar and keyboards, while the former takes on a serpentine slink, with Moreno’s vocals rich with surprising new tones.

“Radiohead Man” reviewed this as 2 stars because most of the songs are “5 years old”. No, they’re from 2011. That would make it 2 years old, first of all.

Secondly… who cares? Do you have these tracks? Then yes, buy the newest 5 songs. The rest were on older EPs. But does that warrant a 2/5 review? Get some brains dude. This record is shaping up to be the best I’ve heard in a while.

5 new songs only?

All of these songs except 5 are at least a year old. They have 2 EPs that have 10 of these songs on them. I thought it was an album coming out, not a compilation.

As a group they are great. If you don't have EPs buy for sure. If you do just get new songs.

the best

if you love the deftones, team sleep, or palms, this is for you.
2 thumbs up


Formed: 2011 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

A side-project of Deftones singer Chino Moreno and Far guitarist Shaun Lopez, Crosses finds the two highly influential alt-metal icons joining forces in a project that focuses on the more soothing side of their respective groups. With a more downbeat sound, Crosses sound emphasizes and isolates the ideas that made their bands stand apart from the rest of the pack, emphasizing mood and melody over raw aggression. In 2011, Moreno announced that the pair had finished a number of tracks and had plans...
