Despite being waylaid from the road like every other touring band, 2020 was a big year for Deftones. The alt-metal trailblazers released both a 20th anniversary edition of White Pony — complete with a companion-piece remix record, Black Stallion — and a captivating new full-length of original material, Ohms, Revolver's pick for album of the year. One of the highlights of the latter LP is its second track, the searing, rapturous "Ceremony." Today (April 21st), the standout cut got a music video to match its haunting grandeur. The captivating clip boasts some serious Hollywood talent, as well — it was directed Leigh Whannell (Invisible Man, Upgrade) and stars actress Cleopatra Coleman (The Last Man on Earth, In the Shadow of the Moon), who dives down a rabbit hole to mysterious horror. Watch above.
