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.

By Matt Pucci VINE VOICE

In case you didn't get the memo, the Dillinger Escape Plan are freakin' AWESOME. 1999's Calculating Infinity is one of the most influential hardcore/metal albums of all time, and while it may still be the last word in ultra-complex aural punishment, their subsequent recorded output has ensured they've kept the bar suitably high. 2004's Miss Machine is still a personal favourite, despite the fact that in many people's eyes it lacked the sheer, uncompromising brutality of its predecessor. Nevertheless, it marked a step forward in the evolution of the band - not least because it was their first release with new frontman Greg Puciato - and was followed by a download-only EP featuring 3 covers and 2 re-recorded tracks from Miss Machine. However, following the departure of drummer and founder member Chris Pennie, the emergence of a new DEP full-length appeared to be in doubt until autumn last year...

And so to Ire Works. Well, if you haven't heard it already, there is one track in particular on this album that sums up exactly where Dillinger are at right now. That track is called 'Black Bubblegum' - a stunning, impossibly catchy pop/metal number that features the muscle-bound Puciato snarling like a constipated pitbull one moment and crooning, Justin Timberlake-style, the next. As one reviewer has already noted, this isn't the DEP that fans of Calculating Infinity will know and love, but to disown a band for being this inventive, this ballsy and this capable of side-stepping any silly labelling (spazz-core? What does that actually MEAN?!) would be just plain stupid. Make no mistake: Ire Works is a masterpiece of creativity, the band unafraid of virtually any undertaking (as the aforementioned Black Bubblegum illustrates) and - what's more - pulling it off with style and panache.

Format:Audio CD
Any new release by noise legends The Dillinger Escape Plan is going to be hugely anticipated amongst those in the know and this one, `Ire Works', is no different. It has certainly been a long time since 2004s `Miss Machine' exploded onto our stereos. It was an album that managed, despite its savage brutality, to propel the band into a more mainstream circle, which predictably annoyed many of their hardcore following. But nit-picking scenesters aside, it was undeniably an epic journey of technical wizardry and math-like complexity that wowed almost everyone in the critical and public domain from every angle.

The first two tracks of `Ire Works' dutifully pick up where `Miss Machine' left us. The stop-start-ridiculously-off-time guitar stabs piledrive the speakers into oblivion, as do Greg Puciato's pulverizing vocals. With drummer and founding member Chris Pennie leaving the band to take up duties in prog-emo rockers Coheed Cambria, another drummer was needed to step in and do one hell of job. Gil Sharone was acquired and quite literally pummels this album to shreds whilst still keeping the DEP feel intact.

What has always made The Dillinger Escape Plan that much more interesting than the next technical noise band is their creativity and sometimes bizarre experimentation. Sounding like an angrier Mike Patton, Greg Puciato yelps, whispers, howls and yes, soulfully sings through a set of songs where intense vocals and even more intense instrumentation make for a rather unsettling listening experience. `Black Bubblegum' creeps along in a weirdly poppy manner, as does `Sick On Sunday' with its lightening fast arpeggio guitar runs peddling away in the background. There is even a distinctly Every Time I Die-esque track which seems to be an obvious single choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't know your name!!!! 27 Feb 2008
By Viper
Format:Audio CD I was lucky to just tour the UK with these guys and I thought I would throw my opinions in for good measure...

I have never really been a big DEP fan as I found their early releases (Running Board and Calculating Infinity) way too hard to swallow and subsequently never bothered to seek any others out.

I wish I had really as Miss Machine (apparently) was a different beast altogether and contained more mainstream melodies and different influences entirely.

I love it when a band evolves and that's pretty much where we have ended up.

This album boots off with "Fix Your Face" and "Lurch" which, although are in the regular DEP sound, are short and I think this helps as they don't lose any of the punch and musical insanity that are DEP trademarks.

Then...(and the kids might not like it)...they delve into Faith No More country with "Black Bubblegum" which sounds like something from King For A Day. But...listen out for the mad piano part and the trumpets. It's still Dillinger but a weird and twisted version.

It's then that the Aphex Twin influence comes with the intro to "Sick On Sunday" and the two "When Acting..." instrumentals. "Nong Eye Gong" gets a bit lost in the middle but WORKS on the vinyl as it's the last track on Side 1.

Side 2 is a different affair entirely...but you can find out for yourselves. Go out and buy it.

It's great to hear a band evolving and not recording the same record again like sooooo many bands these days.

I thought I would hate it but it's turned into a great discovery.
