Among the Czech audience, a well-established group of Deftones stood alongside their fellow KoRn members at the birth of the whole nu-metal genre. The latter have remained faithful to their style and have basically kept a single chandelier throughout their motorcycleeers, with Deftones and each of their upcoming albums increasingly inclined towards an alternative approach to their music, gaining great recognition from listeners and music critics (as many metal bands can with a Grammy Award ).
Deftones has been undergoing a major test since the end of 2008, when bassist Chi Cheng fell unconscious after a serious motorcycle crash. His condition is slowly improving, but he still has a very long way back to the stage. Tak together we wish Chima good luck for the future, he will definitely need him.
