Musical style and influences of Deftones Lineup Reading Festival

Though initially rooted in heavy metal, Deftones have always claimed diverse influences, with their musical style diversifying over their career.Their sound has been described as alternative metal, art rock, dream, experimental,metal, post, progressive rock, alternative rock, and metal. Their B Sides & Rarities compilation includes cover songs from favorite artists, ranging from metal, hard rock (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and post-hardcore (Helmet and Jawbox), to gothic rock, art rock and new wave (Duran Duran, Cocteau Twins and The Cure), mainstream R&B (Sade Adu) and hip hop (a collaboration with B-Real of Cypress Hill).
Critics have often praised them as one of the more unique rock bands of recent years for their innovative, atmospheric music; as Johnny Loftus writes, “Rock critics usually reserve a special place for Deftones above or at least away from the rest of the turn-of-the-century metal movement [….] Deftones have always seemed more curious, more willing to incorporate traditionally revered sounds like D.C. hardcore and dream pop into their Northern California alt-metal.”
Moreno’s poetic lyrics were described by a TIME magazine critic as “suggesting emotions rather than announcing them.”Moreno has cited Morrissey, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, The Cure’s Robert Smith, Bad Brains’ H.R., P.J. Harvey, and Depeche Mode’s David Gahan among his favorite singers.
