The soothing vocals of Reza Salleh fills up my Friday rainy evening. Strong and calm at the same time, his songs (written and arranged by Reza Salleh himself) displayed a modern-country style with interesting unpredicatble tempo (as in Angan-angan Permata).

Most of this songs in his first album – Realize start with guitar tunes. Ocean Spanning Sorrow had a guitar intro as if testing suitable chords which reminds me of ‘Greenday – Time of Your Life‘. There were use of upbeat drums in 50 Down the Way and Rest & Relax. Angan-angan Permata displayed use of saxaphone at the end of the tune.

DEFTONES: A MIND BLOWING EXPERIENCE
By AUSTIN CAMOENS
March 5

KUALA LUMPUR: If someone had come up to me ten years ago and told me that Deftones would schedule a tour date here in Malaysia’s capital I would have dismissed the comment as ludicrous. So you could imagine my surprise when my cousin Aaron Camoens, told me that the greatest Nu-Metal band was coming to town. I knew that this was a once in a lifetime experience and decided that ticket prices would not be a deterrent and me along with my younger brother Abel, my cousins Aaron and Sonia decided that we would get the most expensive tickets at RM258 to enjoy a night of heavy metal moshing.

Fans rushing into the entrance when the gates are opened

The band was brought in courtesy of TuneTalk and was set to rock Kuala Lumpur on Valentine’s Day, making it one of the crazier Valentines dates anyone would opt for. I personally headed down to the concert believing that the band would kick the concert off with songs from their latest release, Diamond Eyes.
