Gore is the eighth studio album by the American alternative metal band Deftones, released on April 8, 2016 byReprise Records.

Gore received acclaim from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has an average score of 81 based on 23 reviews.[24] In their April 2016 issue, Metal Hammerawarded the album 9 out of 10, claiming that “if, however, you delight in being challenged, coerced and invited on a journey of oblique emotional mysticism, then Gore is going to be one of your favourite albums of this year”.[31] AllMusicstated, “Not only have [Deftones] surpassed fates similar to other acts associated with the nu-metal genre, but they have continuously pushed the boundaries of what metal can be and how artistry can evolve. Gore is a triumphant reminder that a veteran act can continue to grow and still remain relevant”.[19] Writing for Exclaim!, Calum Slingerland called the record “an emotionally divided release” that will “continue to endear and swing with your own mood — however you’re feeling”.[26] Reviewing for Spin, Andy O’Connor praised the use of Iron Maiden-like guitar work from Carpenter on “Phantom Bride” and “Pittura Infamante”, calling them examples of the album’s “experimental-rock gospel”.
