Speaking to Ultimate-Guitar.com, Deftones' Stephen Carpenter said he wasn't interested in the direction his band was going for their upcoming LP, Gore. He said playing on the record is an achievement for him. Carpenter explained: "When we were coming up with the ideas and writing the songs, the stuff that was being written, you know, the other guys’ ideas, I wasn’t too interested in it. It wasn’t the style or the sound I was hoping we would take. My band is going one direction and I am going another one currently. I look at all the songs on the record and they were all a challenge for me to get into. I just really like metal, and I love all the metal that’s being played now. I wish everybody would stop saying ‘djent’ though. That’s just dumb. It’s metal.” He also explained that while he could never leave the band it was a struggle to record this record.
In another Twitter rant, Kanye West announced he will release a new album this summer.
