Music: White Pony: Deftones


This Sacramento, Calif., rock group finds rhythm in noise, moments of clarity amid stretches of anguish. Its deejay seamlessly mixes in with the other players, giving the band's songs subtle texture and depth. White Pony's emotional range is impressive: the track Knife Prty [sic] cries out with murderous abandon; the spare Teenager creeps along carefully, with singer Chino Moreno sighing his lines above a tender guitar. Deftones scrapes the rust off the metal/hip-hop genre.
