While 'Koi No Yokan' might not match 'White Pony,' which is the transitional and pinnacle album for the band that came out over 12 years ago, it has a similar spirit to that album and the self-titled release that followed it. In fact, if 'Koi No Yokan' had come out after 2003's 'Deftones,' it would not interrupt the catalog's flow. Overall, if the Smashing Pumpkins were heavier, ballsier and angrier, they'd make albums that sound like this, since Deftones do have an alt-metal vibe
In their continued exploration of the intersection of heaviness and harmony, Koi No Yokan finds the band returning with a warm, dreamy sound that feels more like heavy dream pop or shoegaze than light metal. Always finding new ways to use old tools, the driving sounds on the album feel more like they're meant to envelop the listener than enrage them, with a sonic gulf - created by Chino Moreno's soaring vocals and Stephen Carpenter's shuddering, extended scale riffs - so large and inviting, it feels like the only option is to dive. in and explore its depths.

Koi No Yokan takes out the strengths of each of these albums since White Pony and leaves out the above criticized points. It´s pretty dark, flows really good as a whole album (nearly every song connects with the next) and adds a huge amount of atmosphere to it. Also, the production seems to be improved regarding Diamond Eyes. There is not one song which doesn´t fit into the album, each song has its place and is loveable from start to finish. Starting with Swerve City as a bouncy, poppy opener, Koi No Yokan beautifully delivers Deftones signature move: the dynamics. Rosemary is the heart of Koi No Yokan, one of Deftones highlights of their whole career. A melody which stays in your head forever. Goon Squad with its dynamics lets you headbang before What happened to you? closes the album with a trippy dreampoppy sound. Reminds directly of Chi, who still suffers from the accident 4 yours ago.
Koi No Yokan is the seventh full-length studio album by American alternative metal band Deftones. The album was released through Reprise Records on November 12, 2012, in the UK and November 13, 2012, in the United States. Band frontman Chino Moreno characterized the album as "dynamic" with a full range of sound, noting that more contributions were made to the album from bassist Sergio Vega compared to their previous record, Diamond Eyes.
Producer Nick Raskulinecz does a fine job meshing the album's elements into a razor-toothed package filled with lush strokes and ethereal nuances. Be it the bludgeoning doom of Gauze or the gorgeous synth ventures in Rosemary and Goon Squad, the album sees Deftones join their old and new sound together, forming a fascinating piece of metal magic. Opener Swerve City does a fine job of preparing the listener for what's to come, despite being under 3 minutes in length. Its fast paced albeit straightforward riff is combined with a celestial bass groove and an even more entrancing guitar.
Deftones – ‘Koi No Yokan’. When Robert Smith died, the remaining members of The Cure did the only thing they could – detuned their instruments, employed a screaming banshee as their. Their seventh album ‘Koi No Yokan’ – named after a Japanese proverb meaning promise of love – comes 17 years after the powering assault of their debut, ‘Adrenaline’. It sees them rediscover the venomous snarl of their early years after 2010’s slightly limp ‘Diamond Eyes’, which the band made as they struggled to come to terms with a car accident that left bassist Chi Cheng in a coma. The reflection and experimentation of that record remains, but they sound more bloodthirsty this time around. From the start, Deftones’ songwriting nous is obvious on ‘Koi No Yokan’, even if it isn’t the return.
