“Ohms” by Deftones on Youtube and Spotify

Down under, Deftones’ fans started to listen to new music from “Ohms”. It seems that Warner started to release new stuff from Deftones’ new album, starting in New Zealand. Spotify and Youtube already have a 4:10 song ready to be launched but only some can listen to it. The URLs for new song are:

Deftones – “Ohms” – new album artwork found in the streets of Los Angeles

After all the instagram and twitter clues “Ohms” seems to be the final name for Deftones upcoming 9th studio album. The band is now bombarding the internet with clues, visual snippets, lyrics and locations for “Ohms”. Instagram user straightguysrweird was one of the first to get to the first location posted by the band, near West Hollywood, LA, where in a giant billboard we can read “This is our time, we devour the days ahead”, “09_25_20”, maybe confirming  September 25th as the release day for “Ohms”.

And the Title of the New Deftones Album is…

The Deftones have unveiled a number of teases regarding their new album in recent days, including updates to their official website, brief video teasers and new lyric animations on Spotify’s visualizers.

There was also this Reddit thread from roughly a month ago, which mentions an interview Chino Moreno conducted in which he offhandedly revealed that the title of the album is Ohms. The interview was later edited and various fan sites were asked to refrain from mentioning the title and scrub any references to it.

Indeed, some Deftones sleuths have now unearthed an additional sign that points to Ohms as the album’s title: the first letters of the songs for which the band has posted new lyric visualizers on Spotify —  “One Weak,” “Hexagram” and “Minerva” — begin to spell out that word. Fans should keep an eye on cuts like “Swerve City,” “Sextape” and “Street Carp” today on Spotify to see if new lyric visualizers appear on any of those.

An ohm — symbolized as “Ω” — is a measurement unit of electrical resistance.

Presumably that “S” hint will drop today and then, hopefully, a single will follow tomorrow or Friday. The album is slated for a September 25 release.

Deftones Tease Their New Album

It would appear that the Deftones are about to begin promotional efforts for their new album in earnest. The band has replaced their profile images on social media with a solid black box.

And if you sign up for their mailing list, you get this image, which may or may not be a circuit board.

Notes The PRP:

A directory of ‘0925’ is also used upon signup. This has led to speculation of a potential release on September 25th, which falls on the standard album/single release date of a Friday. Digging into the source code of the site also turns up some notable entries, including “pageName”:”Album Artwork Release Page” and “Deftones:Email for Album Teaser:Landing”.

Frontman Chino Moreno has previously said the new album might drop in September, so that all makes sense.

Stay tuned for more details…

Deftones releases new artwork: new album cover? “OHMS” new album name? September 25th release date?

Deftones’ fans have been surprised today with deftones.com enigmatic braillish image after all social media accounts of the band featured a black profile picture. The image has not been confirmed to be Deftones’ 2020 new album cover.

All seems marketing strategies for their 2020 album pre-release, rumored to be called “OHMS” based on some source code found in the official website by some fans. Also found in the deftones.com source code is “0925” which some think is referring to September 25th, the new albums’ release date.

KISS, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, DEFTONES, KORN, Others Confirmed For 2021 Edition Of U.K.’s DOWNLOAD Festival

U.K.’s Download festival has announced KISS, BIFFY CLYRO and SYSTEM OF A DOWN as its 2021 headliners, plus many more of the world’s most exciting bands in rock, punk, hardcore and metal including DEFTONES, KORN, STEEL PANTHER and THE DISTILLERS will return for Download 2021, with even more yet to be announced. The three-day festival takes place on June 4-6, 2021 at the spiritual home of rock in Donington Park, Leicestershire. Tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. on Friday, Augut 7 via downloadfestival.co.uk/tickets.

After an epic and well documented 45-year career that launched an era of rock ‘n’ roll, the legendary KISS will perform in the U.K. at Download festival 2021, in a U.K. exclusive. They embarked on their final-ever tour in 2019 under the appropriately named “End Of The Road”, and known for their trademark larger-than-life blistering performances, KISS have proven for decades why they are hands down the most iconic live show in rock ‘n’ roll, and one of the best headliners Donington has ever seen. With more than 100 million albums sold worldwide, 2020 was due to be their final-ever Download appearance, but due to COVID-19 they’ll be bringing their spellbinding show to the hallowed grounds in 2021 instead.

Also headlining Download 2020 will be SYSTEM OF A DOWN, also in a U.K. exclusive. With just five studio albums, the Californian/Armenian band have earned themselves a worldwide following, never failing to put on a mind-blowing performance.

SYSTEM OF A DOWN bassist Shavo Odadjian says: “We’re disappointed we weren’t able to make it over this year, but we’re looking forward to next. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Mostly, we all just want to make sure everyone is provided with a safe and secure environment, so we were prepared to wait as long as we needed to.”

Returning to Donington after their fantastic headline set in 2017 are Scottish rock titans BIFFY CLYRO, who will headline the festival once again in 2021. With the band set to release their ninth studio album, “A Celebration Of Endings”, this month, the trio will be keen to show off new tracks as well as some of their most well-known hits, including “The Captain”, “Mountains” and “Many Of Horror”.

In addition to the brilliant acts who have continued over from 2020, Download are delighted to announce several new additions to the lineup, along with BIFFY CLYRO, including the mighty STEEL PANTHER, pop punk kings A DAY TO REMEMBER, the mysterious CREEPER, who have recently returned from hiatus, punk legends RISE AGAINST, internet sensation POPPY, and many more.

Returning to Donington in 2021 are DEFTONES. Since their inception, the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning alternative rock band from Sacramento have released seven albums and sold over 10 million albums worldwide which include fan-favourite tracks “My Own Summer (Shove It)”, “Change (House Of Flies)” and “Swerve City”.

BIFFY CLYRO said: “We can’t wait to return to headline Download in 2021! It’s a highlight of the festival calendar and a big part of our history as a band. Headlining in 2017 was special and now it’s time to celebrate again! Fuck on!”

With 13 albums behind them already, KORN will be back too. The two-time Grammy Award-winning band have toured the world countless times and have continued to push the limits of the rock, alternative and metal genres, while remaining a pillar of influence for legions of fans and generations of artists around the globe.

Also returning are the one and only THE DARKNESS, LA punk rockers THE DISTILLERS, Hollywood favourites BLACK VEIL BRIDES, Scottish pirate metallers ALESTORM, Maryland death metallers DYING FETUS, metalcore heroes KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, Brazilian heavy metallers SEPULTURA, Welsh icons FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND in their last ever festival appearance, and many more.

With over 70 bands confirmed to return to Donington in 2021 and much more in the works, Download festival could not be more ready to reunite with its incredible community. COVID-19 might have put a stop to Download 2020, but the spirit of Download never died.

Download festival’s Andy Copping said: “2020 has been a tough year for us all, and we were beyond gutted not to be able to experience Download festival with you all. We gave you Download TV to reflect on memories of the past, and what the festival means to all of us. Download 2021 is going to be something special and go down in the history books as when the Download family reunited. We’re going to be working hard behind the scenes to make Download 2021 an unforgettable experience and a celebration of the festival we all love.”

Nu Metal “Big Four” Album Sales Compared: Slipknot vs. Korn vs. Deftones vs. System of a Down

When folks utter the phrase “The Big Four,” they’re typically talking about the titans of thrash who ushered in a whole new era of metal in the ’80s: Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and, of course, Metallica. But the phrase “Big Four” has since opened up to encompass the top four acts — in terms of popularity, cultural importance, longevity, etc. — in any genre of metal. Who are the big four of death metal? Black metal? Metalcore? Etc.

Last month we compared vinyl sales of the Big Four of thrash side by side to see how they stack up against one another using a variety of metrics provided by Discogs, the biggest and most comprehensive music database, social network and marketplace all in one. This month we’re doing it again… for everyone’s favorite punching bag metal sub-genre (until they sheepishly admit they grew up on the stuff): nu metal!

For the purposes of this article, we’ll be comparing vinyl sales of albums by Slipknot, Korn, Deftones and System of a Down. You may take exception to that list as the definitive Big Four of nu metal — haven’t some of these bands transcended the genre? shouldn’t Limp Bizkit and/or Linkin Park be included? etc. — but that’s what we’re going with. If you disagree, we’re sure there’s a MetalSucks commenter willing to argue with you.

Let’s start with Slipknot, since they’re the obvious choice for “biggest” band of the group based on the layperson eye-test for popularity; in a word, they’re the Metallica of this group (a look of MetalSucks site traffic bears out that assumption). Slipknot have sold 11,127 copies of vinyl on Discogs since 2010, not including bootlegs. Their most popular release on Discogs is Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), but only by a hair: it beats out Iowa by only six copies, with 943 Discogs users listing it as a “have” to Iowa‘s 937.

Here’s where things get interesting: Iowa is in WAY more demand. A whopping 1,993 users on Discogs list Iowa as a “want,” meaning they want but do not have the album, compared to only 97 wants for Vol. 3. Put another way, pretty much everyone who sought out Vol. 3 already has it, but Iowa is way more hard to find and in higher demand. The lowest price for a copy of Iowa currently selling on the platform is $385; holy shit! Comparatively, Vol 3. can be had for as little as $3.

But wait — here’s the real shocker! Slipknot are not the most popular band of the Nu Metal Big Four when it comes to vinyl. They’re not even the second most popular. That honor belongs to Korn! Korn have moved 14,868 pieces of etched plastic since 2010 on Discogs, with their most owned album being 2002’s Untouchables. Once again, it’s very close: the top five Korn albums are all within 40 copies of each other. Take a look at the “haves” column here:

Unsurprisingly, it’s Follow the Leader, the band’s explosive 1998 album with some of their best-known hits, that has the highest minimum price of the bunch, by a good margin: the least expensive copy is currently going for $60 compared to $25 for next highest-priced minimum, The Nothing.

Deftones grab the #2 slot when it comes to the Nu Metal Big Four vinyl club. They’ve put up some solid numbers with 12,013 copies of their records sold on Discogs, but it’s their 2003 self-titled affair that’s the most-owned, not White Pony or Around the Fur like one would probably guess (those don’t even make the top six — maybe they’re just that rare and hard to find). Deftones (the album) is also the most in-demand, with 407 wants to the runner up’s 305. It seems that release really resonated with fans at the time, despite the band themselves since saying that they’re not too fond of it.

Rounding out the Big Four of Nu Metal are System of a Down, who we have to imagine would’ve ranked higher if they’d put out new music in the past 15 friggin’ years. Still, their numbers are quite impressive: 9,784 copies sold since 2010. Toxicity notches the most “haves” with 839 (Steal This Album! places a distant second with an appropriate 666 “haves”).

But it’s the “wants” where we really see how popular System of a Down still are, especially compared to the other three bands in discussion here, and even without new music in a decade and a half: Toxicity, Steal This Album! and Mezmerize each beat out every album by every band on this list except for Slipknot’s Iowa. Check out that “want” column:

If there’s one thing System of a Down have been great at for the past decade and a half, it’s making themselves scarce, and that certainly plays into effect here. That scarcity has led to those seeking out their releases having to fork over a pretty penny for them: Toxicity is going for a minimum of $149 right now, and has historically sold for much higher. Here are the top five System of a Down album sales ever on Discogs:

We’ll be back in a couple of weeks with another deep dive into metal record collecting data. What would you all like to see next: the Big Four of death metal? Black metal? Metalcore? New wave polka-core? A list not devoted to any Big Four? Tell us in the comments and don’t forget to search for records over at Discogs.
