Biography

A long time ago, someone said, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Chances are that dude is dead (actually, it was Nietzche and he’s been dead for years), but those seven little words have not only become a modern philosophical and medical catchphrase, but a signpost to life for The Dillinger Escape Plan. That’s because despite a multitude of major ... Read more in Amazon's The Dillinger Escape Plan Store

Despite the fact that this album is 5 years old, it still sets the highest standard for ultra technical noisecore.It combines superb guitarwork and drumming to crazy time signatures along with Dimitris gritty, piercing vocals and the ability to slow down to a funky jazzmetal hybrid when you'd least expect it to make an all round diverse, quality album. I think that just about sums it up...its amazing...buy it!

This album smashed my face in when I first heard it, I really was floored, I didn't know what was going on. I must admit it took me a while to really start to get the complexities of the album, it was almost an impenetrable wall of noise to me then, that was quite a while back in the distance of time, my ear did adjust and found it quite a ride. Listening to it now it's a complex album which is so dynamic there really is no way to get bored with it, even if you try really hard, there is always something interesting going on to keep your attention, background music this is not. You could lose hours putting the album on loop.

Sugar Coated Sour: Sharp burst of instruments followed by sharp bursts of instruments, this song is like falling down the stairs, there are landings but every time you think you are safe another flight of stairs appear out of nowhere.

43% Burnt: Check out this track if you want an idea of this album, high pitched cascade of notes, lyrics spat out, drums beaten to within an inch of life and a false ending that you assume is taking you out of the madness but it's all a trick. The slowly fading ending is brilliant as well.

Jim Fear: The guitars are mental they are constantly on the move and we are even given something that approaches a laid back chugging riff -a seriously drunk one at that- a track designed to make you go mental.

*#..: Fourth track in offers an eerie respite, unsettling like the eye of a storm, then you get a tribal drum while the guitars start to build, there is silence and then...

Destro's Secret: Violent start gives way to gentle moving melodies interspersed with punches of fury.

The Dillinger Escape Plan's first 'full-length' album sees them replicating the insane collision of speed, riffs and odd time signatures from the Under the Running Board E.P. It's not quite as consistent as that release - opening track Sugar Coated Sour sounds more like a throwback to their self-titled mini-album, and on a couple of occasions the band seem to be so buried in mathematically complex rhythms they forget to actually throw in some decent riffs, but when everything comes together on tracks like 43% Burnt and Jim Fear the result is some frighteningly fast and wild music. The album doesn't seem to be Dillinger's natural format, as they only struggle to get the running time over the 30-minute mark with the help of 3 soundscape/instrumental fillers and a hidden extra track, but this is still a wildly impressive debut album. Not quite flawless, but still an essential purchase for those interested in extreme music.

In fact, these guys make every commercial rock band thats ever existed look like unimaginative lightweights. While many of these bands sail through rehearsals, plodding through the same one-dimensional riffs, The Dillinger Escape Plan are hard at work creating head-spinning music thats treats conventions like a particularly easy obstacle course. The collective musical skill of these five highly gifted guys is simply jaw-dropping. What on earth possesses people to make music this complex? who knows. Just be thankful theyre here to set the standard.

First of all, to describe this album as well as the Dillinger escape plan, I would say that this is: Ultra violent, power groove, Hardcore, technical Jazz orientated, speedy mental metal with evil lashings forcing into your brain.
With such great bands like Converge, Orthrelm, Cephalic Carnage or even Meshuggah about, the Dillinger escape plan are purely in a league of their own where no other band could touch them by a long shot. Listen to this album if you dont believe me!
If you're hearing this album for the first time, I recommend that you brace yourself for a continuos barrage of mental noise that will honestly blow you away. Songs like "Clip the Apex" or "Destro's secret" will make you wonder how you can combine nastiness and technicality so well, that it doesnt destroy the song like many other death and grind metal bands usually do. It truly is genius and is probably the best metal album you will hear for a very, very long time. Get it!!!!!!

dillinger escape plan are very much mathcore,some dont like that term but it sums up best what they sound like,distorted,panic driven guitars,mad drum beats,they are all over the place,but it still makes sense,they wont let you predict their movements,they sound like a band jamming at times but they all know what they are doing so dont panic,its jazzy metal at times,its punk at times,its heavy metal as well,the vocals howl and scream and gather fury and then it all clams down and then they are off on an insane and warped mindless road again,this is a shining example in the genre,this is a superb introduction to the world of mathcore and dillinger escape plan,so mad it evolves into perfect sense ,weird,huh?
