Deftones: "Tempest"

Long hard road out of Hell for Cali's Deftones lately, bassist Chi Cheng climbing that slow hill to recovery while Sergio Vega respectfully fills his duties. Koi No Yokan (out November 13) isn't exactly a comeback record - the first post-Cheng product, Diamond Eyes, came out two years ago - but it's the first that can be taken at face value without the story of Cheng's accident being front and center.

"Tempest" isn't the 'tones' most challenging song musically, but it's a reliably catchy number that proves they can still hit that infectious 90's groove when they need to.
