Chino Moreno from Deftones has released a solo track entitled “Brief Exchange”.

The track is inspired by DC Entertainment’s new graphic novel “Dark Nights: Metal” which is available now in comic book shops, bookstores and digitally. This also marks Moreno’s first collaboration with DC.

Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning 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), “Brief Exchange” spotlights Moreno.“Brief Exchange” features Bates on guitar, Elizondo on bass and Gil Sharone from Dillinger Escape Plan, Puscifer behind the drum kit. Its dark lyrics remain befitting of the graphic novel’s themes.


I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
