Deftones have always made some really interesting and cool music videos. The video they released earlier in the year for the song “Sextape” was a beautifully shot underwater series that encapsulated the song perfectly. Now they have released the 5th video off of their amazing 2009 album Diamond Eyes for the song “Beauty School”. Watch it below.
Not only is the song great, but the video is a perfect fit. What I love most about it is that it’s bare bones. It showcases the palpable energy of a Deftones live show (which are some of the best out there) as well as the backstage antics that go on on a daily basis. It just seems like they had a lot of fun putting this video together. In my opinion Deftones are one of the only bands to transcend the nu-metal genre they (sort of) began in. They’ve evolved into a really great band over the years and still stand out from the pack just as they did 10 years ago. Chino Moreno‘s voice still echoes through the walls of your head and even in the tragic absence of bassist Chi Cheng the band has pushed forward and continued to make some of the best music the metal world has to offer.
Their newest work, Diamond Eyes, is out now on Reprise Records. Definitely check it out if you haven’t yet.
