Album Description &Collector Notes:


The Deftones are one of the most influential and innovative bands to emerge from the late 1990s nu-metal scene. Their unique blend of heavy guitars, atmospheric soundscapes, and emotionally charged lyrics set them apart from their peers, and their self-titled 2003 album, also known as the "White Pony" album, stands as a high point in their career. Originally released on CD and vinyl, the 12" vinyl LP version of the album is a must-have for fans of the band and vinyl collectors alike.

The album's opening track, "Hexagram," sets the tone for what's to come with its crushing riffs and aggressive drumming. Singer Chino Moreno's vocals alternate between a melodic croon and anguished screams, perfectly complementing the music's dynamics. s.

One of the things that makes the vinyl LP version of the album so special is its packaging. The album's cover art, featuring a white skull against a black background, is striking in its simplicity. The vinyl itself is a beautiful black color, and the record sleeve features full-color artwork and lyrics. The attention to detail is evident, and it's clear that the band wanted the album to be a complete and immersive experience for the listener.

Another reason to seek out the vinyl LP version of the album is the sound quality. Vinyl has a warmth and depth that digital formats can't replicate, and the album's production, courtesy of Terry Date and the band themselves, sounds incredible on vinyl. The guitars have a crunch and clarity that cut through the mix, and the bass and drums have a weight and impact that make you feel like you're in the room with the band.
