||When I first popped in the Cheva
CD "Misunderstood" I thought to myself, these guys sound
like the Deftones, and the new metal sound. After giving the CD a
few more listens, I now think it's a cross between the Deftones and
Puya. A very good combination. The vocals sound a lot like Chino of
the Deftones, from the calm singing, to rapping, to the screaming.
Musically they are similar to the Deftones, but the guitars seem heavier
because of two guitarist, instead of one. All the songs on this CD
get going pretty good. This six song CD last for over twenty-six minutes
before the CD ends with twenty minutes of talking. My favorite tracks
on this CD are "Brown" and "Juice." The rest of
the songs are good too, you have to give this whole CD a chance. They
maybe the next "new metal" band that gets signed to a big
label. They have this potential, and if they keep opening for bands
like Incubus, Snot and Spineshank you may see Cheva tour with one
of these bands next year!
