Nov 24, 2006 - House of Blues - Orlando, FL

by Jeff K.

Deftones have one of the best ideas of any touring band around, and they are utilizing it to near-perfection. Instead of touring with 3 or 4 opening acts, most of whom usually succeed at barely keeping one's attention, they embarked on their current tour with one, count 'em, one opening band. While the opener in this case did little to prepare those in attendance for what was to come, it was a welcome change from the 'norm' at many shows, both recent and past.

Deadsy, who were also tourmates of the Deftones on the Family Values tour earlier this year, opened the show with their brand of industrial goth-wannabe metal. Honestly, I only caught 3 or so songs by them, but it was enough. I can't imagine anyone with good taste in music being into these guys.

Approximately one hour after the show's start time, Deftones hit the stage with a ton of material in tow. Their set was, to say the least, impressive. Playing material that spanned their five releases, the band wove in and out of their hard-hitting, aggressive songs that they have long been known for, while also injecting more tempo-driven, droning selections into the mix. It would be hard to even highlight many of the songs they played, since it seemed like they played at least 20 songs spanning 10 years of making music. Personal highlights would have included their Adrenaline material, of which they played many of the songs one would have hoped, including, "Engine Number 9", "Minus Blindfold", and "Nosebleed". Highlights from throughout their other albums would have included, "Passenger", "My Own Summer", "Minerva", "Moana", "Cherry Waves", "Rats! Rats! Rats!", and "Around The Fur", just to name a few.

In all, the Deftones set clocked in at just around 90 minutes. Not since I can remember has a band turned out a set so consistently aggressive and intense as the Deftones did on their current tour. Not only was their intensity and endurance impressive, but the scope of songs they played within their set. Many bands stick to only songs from their last two, or at most, three, albums. Deftones played songs that spanned their career, showing fans that they have not forgotten who got them where they are today, as well as the songs that got them there and got fans hooked on them in the first place. This show is not one to be missed, nor will it soon be forgotten.
