Emotional metal stalwarts Deftones have enlisted LA producer Com Truise for an official remix of “Prayers/Triangles,” the lead single and opening track from their new album Gore. The remix is an entirely different beast, smoothing down the original’s expressive sprawl into a supremely chill vintage synth jam. “This one was very exciting and challenging for me as I don’t remix many bands and it was my first time remixing a ‘metal’ track,” Truise told THUMP via email. “I really had to pull the vocals away and start with a blank slate in an attempt to meld them with my sounds. It was definitely an honor to work with the Deftones raw audio tracks. Looking forward to the fans’ reactions.” Listen below.
Gore is out now on Warner Bros.
