KoiNo YokanReprise *****

These atmospheric metallers are back at the top table, four years after a car crash almost
killed their bassist and put an end to the band. Regrouping, they turned out a classic
in Diamond Eyes.

And Koi No Yokan makes good on frontman Chino Moreno’s promise to reflect all of the band’s singular sound – crushing to delicate, introspective to euphoric. Stephen Carpenter contributes two of his most devastating riffs ever on Swerve City and Poltergeist, while Leathers and Rosemary reach higher and are as effective as anything in the band’s career. White Pony will always remain Deftones’ defining statement, but Koi No Yokan is another valiant attempt to better it – a genuinely thrilling return.
