The Dillinger Escape Plan 2009-07-07 18:21:50 Reply

For a while, I only enjoyed their album preformed with the almighty Mike Patton of Faith No More, Mr Bungle and Fanomas fame. I recently put in my old D.E.P. album "Calculating Infinity." I knew they were technical from when I first bought the album, but now with a further knowledge of music, Jesus Christ, I've never heard any form of music as complex as the stuff these guys have created. For example, their song "43% Burnt" the speed, bizarre time structured rhythms and frequent switches astounded me, then they have this incredible break unlike anything I've heard.
I thought Slayer was one of the fastest playing, fascinating, heaviest artists, but nothing compares to the intensity of The Dillinger Escape Plan, from speed, to the technical, to intensity, it's an overall speed assault of insanity never before portrayed musically.
Comparatively, I'd equate their music with the precision of a surgeon on Meth, and the intensity as that felt from the surgeons patient who was awake through the entire surgery.

Don't be ignorant, people know them, not you obviously.

They're not exactly with Green Day in terms of mainstream..


I love metal like crackheads love anal. and crack.

Yeah, I'd say if someone isn't ready to hear a Nuclear Holocaust portrayed musically, they'd probably get scared shitless from this band.

Indeed

although I'm positive a 30 second sample of any Braindrill song however would destroy the untrained listeners ear, and melt their brain.

<3 Braindrill

Shit man, never heard of these guys, amazing, like a mix between The Dillinger Escape Plan, Behemoth and Buckethead.
The funny thing is, I know so many people into the whole "Death Metal" "Hardcore" scene, but upon hearing bands like this, who actually are extremely technical, have no interest in them, and would rather listen to "Screamo" faggotry like Atreyu.

I like the fact that I have friends who find Screamo to be the best form of music, then when I put on Dillinger they find them far below their generic regurgitation.
lolz.

I've been listening to a fair amount of Dillinger lately, I've always been a fan of mathcore and other incredibly eclectic styles. Early Fall of Troy and The Number 12 Looks Like You are also pretty good, if a little more melodic.


Look at my art!

My friend described them as Jazzcore, cuz they're all formerly trained jazz musicians, and I just haven't gotten around to actually listening to them. worth it?

Go away >:( It's not as bad as crunkcore or crabcore

Dillinger Escape Plan is awesome. My favourite by them is either their self-titled or Miss Machine, though Ire Works is great and I love Irony Is A Dead Scene. Still haven't heard their new album.

Personally my favorite is Calculating Infinity.
I like their recent stuff as well, it's just that I believe there is only 1 remaining member from the original lineup, so I'm not really sure how they can still consider themselves the same band.

Calculating Infinity was the first album I ever heard by the group.

It is jazz, and MATHCORE IS A LEGITIMATE GENRE LABEL. If you knew anything about music you would understand why.

THE MOST AMAZING THING ABOUT DEP, is calculating infinity is from 1997!

They played a secret show in Austin for south by southwest....I missed it sadly. Oh yah, The Rolling Stone magazine named them the most violent band in the world.

I could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on about them.
