This song is still, nearly 20 years on, one hell of a vibe and Chino Moreno is a hell of a singer.

I know Deftones has had a very successful career, and Team Sleep is only one of Chino’s—also largely successful—side projects (✝✝✝, Palms, etc.), but I think he remains underrated as a vocalist. I don’t know anyone else who can transition quite so easily from the Blackest-of-Black-Metal-worthy screeches to a breathy, sexy-time croon quite so seamlessly or convincingly.

And… yes. I have heard Sleep Token… 😏
