Palms

Palms is different from what you might expect if you’ve ever heard ISIS or the Deftones. The mastery of instruments remains, but the frenetic, aggressive momentum has been replaced by something more measured and almost shoegaze-y.
It’s not so much a departure for Chino Moreno, the lead singer of Deftones, his voice has an interesting range that can explode acidic and grizzly or lull soft and dreamy. But for the rest of the band, all members of ISIS, this collaboration is a new direction that has allowed for bandmates Jeff CaxideAaron Harris and Bryant Clifford Meyer to explore atmospheric soundscapes that break apart and start anew.

Their new self-titled album, out in June 2013, is really gorgeous and will effect you in surprising ways.
