Chino Moreno from Deftones has released a new solo track! The tune is called “Brief Exchange” and was inspired by DC Entertainment’s new graphic novel DARK NIGHTS: METAL: DELUXE EDITION. This is the first time Chino Moreno collaborated with DC. It marks the 2nd release in this series of tracks inspired by the new graphic novel, beginning with “Red Death” by Brann Dailor—co-vocalist, drummer, and co-founder of heavy rock juggernaut Mastodon. “Red Death” is available now as well.
“Brief Exchange” was produced by non other than icon Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Twenty-One Pilots, The Regrettes) and film composer and former Marilyn Manson guitarist Tyler Bates (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 & 2, Deadpool). Besides Chino Moreno, it also features Bates on guitar, Elizondo on bass and Gil Sharone from Dillinger Escape Plan behind the drum kit.
Its dark lyrics remain befitting of the graphic novel’s themes: Batman has uncovered an ancient and evil mystery… One that could destroy the very fabric of the DC Universe! A Dark Multiverse has been revealed, full of devastating threats and vile creatures that have been loosed upon the DCU, with only The World’s Greatest Super-Heroes rising to the challenge of defending it!
You can get DARK NIGHTS: METAL in comic book shops, bookstores and digitally on Tuesday, June 12. This deluxe hardcover collects issues #1-6 of the DARK NIGHTS: METAL monthly series and is written and drawn by the best-selling creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo.
