Aaron Harris, Clifford Meyer and Jeff Caxide, previously members of the now disbanded post metal act Isis, have recently stated that they have started a new project called Palms alongside Chino Moreno from alternative rockers Deftones.

Moreno said regarding the project: "Being a huge Isis fan I've always dug the moods these dudes convey with their sound. I am excited to combine my sense of creativity with theirs, and to have fun doing so."

According to the band members, they have continued to make music after Isis ended. Chino soon joined their ranks and they recorded their first album, which will be released though Ipecac Recordings later this year.

Palms is formed by Jeff Caxide on bass and keyboards, Aaron Harris on drums, Clifford Meyer on guitar and keyboards and Chino Moreno on vocals.

Interesting .

Deftones are one of the few "listenable" rock bands left , didn't know they had any interest in Isis .

Never had much interest in Deftones before though through no fault of the vocals. Hope it is something unique, though "Isis w/new vocalist" would probably be pleasant enough for me.

I hope they don't fall in the "supergroup fail" category.
I really have a lot of faith on this one.

Deftones were practically only one album away from being a post-metal band anyway so this isn't much of a surprise.

O RLY?
I'm not that familiar with Deftones besides how they were some Nu metal band.

Not a single iota of nu-metal left in the last Deftones record. It's good stuff, to me anyway.

Should be a very heady experience...considering Team Sleep was very (for lack of a better word) interesting. If it's like a heavier Team Sleep - I'm sold.

I'm curious what will come out of this connection (never liked Deftones so much).

I never thought of them as nu-metal and it bothers me that most people do so. They were always more on the alternative side.
You could say they sounded sorta similar to the nu-metal scene on their first records, but then they got sick of that and released the White Pony record which left out almost all traces.

Now this should be interesting.

I'm not that familiar with a lot of their stuff but I tend to agree really. Their approach doesn't really seem to be indicative of nu-metal on the whole.

No Aaron Turner, let's see if these other Isis dudes can write songs...

Did anyone care about Che?

Is he still in Coma?

eh?

Wait, this news is very interesting.

Except for the fact that they were the first nu metal band around, alongside Korn. Of course, they changed style on the second one, and most people got into them by the time White Pony got out, where, as the guy said, all traces of nu were gone. The one after that is where I lost interest, for it was a truly horrible album.

Well yeah, I have the latest on my pc. I was just thinking about the very first albums. But... I don't hear any post-metal on the latest. I'll check it again.

I definitely hear some post elements in it. As I say it's not post-metal yet, but I could easily see it going that way.

White Pony and Saturday Night Wrists were closer to it than the last one. The last one was actually significantly less instrumental or experimental than the previous 3 albums, however, it's still a great album. This should be an amazing album as long as they play to each others strengths.
