Speaking about the new album, frontman Chino Moreno told the BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show in November:

“I can’t really compare it to our last couple of records. I mean, those two records were done in a very similar manner where we locked ourselves in a room for a short period of time and wrote and recorded it. And therefore, I feel like we sort of really captured this moment in time, and the records sort of sound cohesive because of that. This record was done sort of over a year, spread out over these little, tiny writing sections. So it sounds a bit more fragmented, but in a good way. I mean, I feel like you put on one song and it’s completely different from the song after it, or previous to it. So it’s not like we had this one main idea and we went in and we sort of went with that vibe. I mean, the vibe’s sort of all over the place. So, like any Deftones record, I mean, it’s got dynamics and there’s loud aggressiveness and there’s mellowness to it, but it’s all sort of got an ebb and flow to it. I don’t know… It’d be hard for me to just put it in words exactly what it sounds like. It’s definitely a Deftones record. The way I look at it is it’s a gradual step from where we last were.”
