Celebrating the release of their excellent sophomore album, “Around the Fur” (Maverick), Sacramento’s Deftones played an exciting, assured concert at the packed Palace that placed them in the early lead for rock bands most likely to succeed this coming holiday season.

Singer Chino Moreno, the dynamic, explosive vocalist at the center of Deftones’ musical firestorm, led his bandmates — two Mexicans, a Chinese and a white boy is how they describe themselves — through a 70-minute, 18-song encore-less set comprising songs from both of their albums; the new songs impressed more, revealing great strides in both songwriting and dramatic arrangement.

Tunes such as “Around the Fur,” which mocks the fashion model industry, and escapist “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away),” demonstrated the group’s ability to balance soft, intense strains with rage-filled crescendos. As always, the kids in the pit were a veritable fifth member of the band and during show-closer “Engine #9,” Moreno crowd-surfed while screaming.

After a few more U.S. dates, Deftones head for a series of shows in Europe, followed by what could very well be the band’s breakthrough American tour this winter.
