Deftones

Along with Korn, Sacramento's Deftones are recognized as pioneers in the genre of nu-metal that came into prominence in the mid-nineties, with both bands independently playing a similar style in their early days. They have forged a successful career over the years, broadening their style beyond the borders of their initial nu-metal leanings to more closely align to alternative rock/metal.

Their career was hit hard in 2009 when bassist Chi Cheng was involved in a serious car accident. He was in a coma for most of the next four-plus years, before sadly passing away in April 2013.
