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

Calculating infinity was a real slap in the face for me at a time when i was kinda getting sick of all the music floating around at the time.A Frantic yet exact assult with musicianship thats very hard to fault. Miss Machine takes this concept and in my opinion spices it up with a pinch of melody. Some may say that this is selling out but I still cant see this album being lapped up by your standard alt music crowd. Besides who wants to hear a band churn out the same thing again and again. If i want that i will play the Ramones.

Here it is, one of the most hotly anticipated metal albums of the last few years. Was it worth the wait? Definitely! Is it better than calculating infinity? In my opinion no, but that's a tall order!
With a fresh singer, and a fresh sound, modern DEP is very different from the DEP of 1999. The heaviness and kamikaze playing has been toned down, there are still some self-destructive moments, but not as many as previously witnessed. In place of this DEP have branched out into different sounds and styles.
Mike Pattons influence, as well as Trent Razors is clearly evident throughout this album, you've got the all out gut wrenchers of old DEP, with the strange twisted music of Patton, coupled to the sleek metallic sound of NIN. It's a strange mix, but it works! I gotta admit that I didn't like this album upon first listen, but after a few more spins it grew on me. I was expecting an all out psycho fest like CI, DEP have instead served up a curve ball that you'll either love or despise.

It's taken five years but it's finally here. Yes children, Dillinger are back and better than ever. Whilst the opening salvo of Panasonic Youth and Sunshine The Werewolf suggests that little has changed in the Dillinger camp (no bad thing) with "challenging" time signatures, brutal vocals and stunning instrumentation still abounding, by the fifth track new vocalist Greg Puciato has really come into his own. His wider vocal range has allowed the band to explore some of the avenues pursued on 2002's collaboration with Mike Patton; this is particularly evident on Phone Home, which features sinister Patton-esque vocals and some great atmospheric Line 6 guitar work and Unretrofied's smooth vocal harmonies. Whilst the heavier work still harks back to their Calculating Infinity days, Dillinger now seem more willing to lock into a groove (witness the huge breakdowns in Van Damsel, We Are The Storm and Baby's First Coffin) and the insane time changes seem to fit together more naturally. As a whole, these apparently disparate influences have created an insidiously catchy album that demands repeated plays in order to experience the various nuances. It's clear that the band have made a conscious effort to distance themselves from the "hardcore scene" and will no doubt be called sell-outs but, to be honest, anything that p*sses off hardcore kids gains my instant respect. Make no mistake, this album is a classic.
P.S.: It's definitely worth shelling out the extra money for the bonus DVD, if only to see Greg deck a Hatebreed fan in the face.

By Mo VINE VOICE on 16 Jan. 2005

Panasonic Youth was the first time I came to hear TDEP, and that proved enough for me to purchase the album (or rather hint it as an Xmas present).
As I haven't heard the band's earlier stuff (yet) I'm unable to judge if they've got better or worse, but on it's own this LP is brilliant!
But, I don't think it's everybody's cup of tea. Despite being a fairly swift 40mins with a couple of radio friendly tracks (and it's only these that knock it from a full 5 stars due to cheese whiffs), this is not a universal album. Panasonic Youth is kind of a perfect first single as it's accessible but shows a taster of what they're about.
The album sounds like one big song or sound, and most of these tracks are brutal concotions of speed, off time signatures and shredding vocals. The flurried double bass drum and off snares seem to be the lead instrument in TDEP with the dualling guitars emphasising the drum rhythms and going crazy inbetween them. You get melody at times, but this is mostly about rhythm.
To properly appreciate the album you have to play it a few times to learn the multitude of changes within a song. You can't gel and groove to it straight away. The first few listens may feel like being caught on an electric fence if you're not used to this kind of (pleasant assault). You need to know what's coming.
The musicianshipship and singing is phenomenal. The actual production could've been made a bit more grittier though I feel.
The accompanying DVD features camcorder style studio footage and some live clips. I only ever watched this once so you could save a bit by getting the standard CD version.
All in all if you're tired of poppy metal (although there is a bit of vibe that here in parts), this is probably the best you'll find in modern near-commercial music. Definetly recommended for those who like shredding and clever (at times too clever; some more simpler grooves would be welcome in the future) music.

Miss Machine is the Dillinger Escape Plan's swansong. "Calculating Infinity" was special, certainly, it was a ferocious blitz of oral chaos and masterful musicianship. Yet the arrival of Mr. Puciato has transformed DEP into an outfit capable of moulding these talents into a decpiherable coherent album : lacking NONE of the ferocity. This last point must be emphasised, old school fans worried about the melodic sensibilities of the album need not be worried : it's business as usual from the DEP guys. The opening seconds of "Panasonic Youth" should tell you as much.
But Miss Machine is much, much more than just chaos. It's organised chaos, the best kind. The structure of the songs is enough to keep you coming back again and again to find something new with the album. It's captivating, engrossing, disturbing, cathartic, lyrically immense.
You can say all you want about Calculating Infinity : it was excellent, for sure, but Miss Machine takes DEP's noise to another level. It's no longer noise. The effects within songs are just awesome - example, the trumpets in "Sunshine the Wereworlf" creep me out every time I hear it. The song is glorious. Some of the songs have recognisable choruses - this is no bad thing, there's no element of a grab to the mainstream here, "The Perfect Design" is as heavy a song you'll hear all year.
It's masterfully sculpted aggression - and I just can't get enough of it. Hook DEP upto my veins.
