So, I have to be honest with you. The Deftones are a really great band! However, as good as they are, for a long time they were just the band that came right before I got to Depeche Mode when thumbing through vinyl at the record store. You know, generation X’s version of scrolling… I’m sure many other old school Devotees out there have similar memories of flipping past the Deftones to hurriedly get to the Depeche Mode section.
Well, this dark and somber rendition of the Sweetest Perfection is a true masterpiece when it comes to DM covers, and its definitely not a track to be flipped past. Pull it out of the stack, put it on your player or playlist and give it a listen. You will be glad you did.
