Throwback: “Korea” by Deftones!

19th August 2000 saw Sacramento Californian Alternative Metallers Deftones play Bizarre Fest in Weeze Germany, just a couple of months after their critically acclaimed third studio album “White Pony” was released. As the World celebrates the 20th Anniversary of arguably the bands most influential album, we’ve chosen “Korea” from it and that festival appearance as today’s offering from memory lane. We could have easily gone with “Elite“, which won the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 2001 (and which Weaponry would cover) or “Back To School“, which the band themselves aren’t fans of (at least in the context of the record) or pretty much any cut from the album, it’s a timeless classic. But “Korea” being one of the more riff oriented tracks, speaks to us.
