People were trembling with excitement up front at the hard-core fan area. And when Chino Moreno entered, the excitement released a roar of screams welcoming the band.
It was obvious, that both the fans and the band felt privileged to be there.
They threw themselves into massive guitar riffs and vocal screams that echoed hypnotically back and forth across the field.
The major fan base in front knew almost every song, and when Chino Moreno began to turn his index finger in circles, they knew exactly what to do. A mosh pit was beginning to form, and everyone near the circle tossed themselves in there, and jumped around going crazy to the tunes. And Chino smiled of satisfaction.
Deftones did a good job of mixing both old and new tracks, and people went nuts as soon as their old hit song ‘Change (in the House of Flies)’ started.
In the back people were bouncing calmly to the bass, but unfortunately, it did not seem like Deftones reached the entire audience. And since they were the only band to play at that time, it seemed that many were just standing there, because they had nowhere else to be.
Deftones is not for everyone. I know that. Still they delivered a solid show that every rock/metal fan at Green stage enjoyed.
Deftones did a solid job at NorthSide; including both mosh-pit, guitar riffs, and screaming fans. (4/6)
