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

Mike Patton with Dillinger escape plan? Who could have guessed? The (in)famous psycho metallers and the manic ex faith no more frontman really goes together. Although this EP only has 4 tracks it really is worth every pence. At first I thought that this was way too weird for me but I listened to it again and again and again and it grew onto me. To finally hear Mike Patton push his singing to the extreme is a wonderfull thing. Buy this album now and hail this crazy piece of music.

Following the departure of their original vocalist The Dillinger Escape Plan teamed up with Mike Patton for this blistering EP featuring 3 new songs and 1 cover. While at the time Dimitri Minakakis seemed a perfectly fine vocalist, Mike Patton adds a completely new dimension to the band, making the previous vocals seem rather one-dimensional. Now the lyrics and vocals are as inventive as the music, with Patton alternately screeching, whispering, singing and doing various weird effects and rhythms with the vocal lines. The music is also among the best that the band have ever produced, with immense complicated rhythms and moody non-distorted interludes - the best example of which is the track When Good Dogs Do Bad Things, which must rank as one of the best songs ever written. If there is a slight weak spot here, it's the cover of Come To Daddy which, while not bad, is so comparatively simplistic compared to the other material on this EP (there's really only 1 riff in it repeated over and over again) that it sounds a little pedestrian. Still, as a whole, brilliant essential stuff.

Mike Patton + DEP = pure insanity.

There should have been a full length album instead of an EP at this point of Dillingers career.. but nonetheless, this fleeting moment of brilliance is an amazing piece of pure insanity. Mike Patton solves the only problem that I have had with past DEP releases, and that is the repetitive and often annoying vocals. Mike Patton's voice does many things on this, but one thing he doesn't do is get repetitive. The music itself is even a different kind of machine than that of 'Calculating Infinity'. You can hear bits of electronica scattered here and there and that is no doubt Mike Patton in the workings.

Overall this is an unhinged bit of brutality for any fan of heavy music, and an inspiration for the future success of 'Miss Machine'.. Do not pass this up.

The fact that Aphex Twins Come to Daddy, one of the scariest songs ever recorded is covered here by guys playing live instruments---and their version is just as intense, if not more, than Richard Jamess, should be a sign that this ep is worth picking up for anyone who appreciates intense, angry, music.
But there are three other songs.
When Good Dogs Go Bad is my own personal favorite, with an intensity that matches Come to Daddy.
The other two songs are more chaotic, but still fascinating, and reward repeated listens....
if youre not familiar with the Dillinger Escape Plan, or dont know what Pattons been doing since Faith No More broke up, this is worth checking out--and if you do, youll already know about, and likely appreciate this incredible collaboration...
