1 min read

A couple of months after the reveal of their version of Hatebreed’s “Smash Your Enemies”, xIRON SHARPENS IRONx are making waves with their latest cover of the Deftones classic, “Engine No. 9.” The band’s unique blend of raw hardcore and raw metal resulted in a refreshing take on the beloved nu metal classic.

With influences ranging from Converge, Kocked Loose to Cattle Decapitation, Michigan based xIron Sharpens Ironx comes hard with aggressive and raw vocals, heavy guitar riffs, fast-paced drums, and occasional experimental elements. The band is influenced by bands such as Lock Up, Nails, Ringworm, Shai Hulud, All Pigs Must Die, and Pig Destroyer.

“Engine No. 9” is a hard-hitting track from the Deftones’ debut album “Adrenaline”. With its aggressive guitar riffs, thunderous drums and Chino Moreno’s raw vocals, the song showcases the band’s signature blend of metal, alternative rock and post-hardcore.

Released in 1995, “Engine No. 9” remains a fan favorite and a staple of the Deftones’ live performances, demonstrating the band’s raw energy and intensity.
