"Like we were in Steph‘s garage when we were kids."

It seems like Deftones' upcoming record Ohms was almost written in the complete opposite fashion as their 2016 record Gore. While Gore didn't really involve guitarist Stephen Carpenter, Ohms originally started out with Carpenter in the core writing trio.

Vocalist Chino Moreno recently spoke to 93X, revealing that Ohms started out with himself, Carpenter, and drummer Abe Cunningham getting together in a room and jamming new ideas.

"I didn't even bring a guitar, I just setup a microphone. Steph had his guitar cabinet and Abe setup his drums and us three were in a little triangle. I wanted to see just basic… I wanted to experiment, basic, with us three in a room, like we were in Steph‘s garage when we were kids.

"Like what would happen without all the—I mean obviously it's not like we didn't want Frank and Sergio involved—but I wanted just the core to see what happens, especially since our last record was a little disjointed because of Stephen‘s… he wasn't that involved in the initial foundation of the songwriting.

"So I really wanted to make sure that was something that was present and more than anything it was just like bonding. It was really rad for us three to be in a room and talk shit and just play and make noise."

Ohms was produced by Terry Date (Pantera, Soundgarden) and is available for pre-order here.
