Dillinger Escape Plan's music is like a Cosine, a trigonometric function known as cos 0, that for all real numbers è is given by the sum of the alternating series cos 0 = 1 - 02/2! + 04/4! - 06/6! + 08/8!. By that comparision to a trignometry revolution of numbers, I mean that DEP's music generally starts off one way and by the end of the song ends completely different. It amazes me how they can inject fusion, jazz, classical, death metal and hard rock all in one near-perfect combination.
DEP had a song on the Underworld soundtrack...but still didn't get the recognition they see these guys aren't trendy enough to fall into the category of likeable metal that's digestable such as Atreyu, Korn, Cradle of Filth, Slipknot, and Disturbed (Oh but wait, all those bands suck). I know there are those who will denounce this band due to their hectic way of signing and yes...they do at times lack melody, but see that's the beauty of this album; it's chaotic and full of energy. The guitar work is dazzling and the drummer does more than hit back pedals all day.
My favorite tracks include Destro (Love the jazz breakdown), 43% burnt, Weekend Sex Change, and Calculating Infinity. If you're into Converge, Shai Hulud, Norma Jean, Zao and Lamb of God....chances are you've heard of this band. Get ready for an ass-kicking fix of mathematical mayhem.

These guys continue to be explosive and play with a lot of technical skill indeed. The guitarist has a distinctive sound and style. But I am not so crazy about the singer's voice. I like them better with Mike Patton. I feel his voice is more dynamic and the combination of that with this band's playing makes it more interesting for me. Even that being the case, I still enjoyed Under the running board because it was more melodic than Calculating Infinity. But in general, I hardly understand what the songs are about. Even after having this cd for a long time, when you finding yourself working too hard to understand what it's about after a lack of melody, constant screaming, and problems understanding the lyric arrangement, you can't be entertained so much and instead you become tired and confused. Here and there I feel impressed by some of the guitar parts and the explosive intensity and enjoying some of the melodic parts or slower parts here and there or the jazzier sounding parts, but in the end, I find myself skipping this one for Spiral Architect, Under The RUnning Board, Irony Is A Dead Scene, or something else. Technical Skill is not everything. For me, it's enjoying the music. I imagine if Def Leppard wanted to, they could go hard core too because all professional musicians have skills. Some just choose to make music that is hard or soft with melody and some understandable lyrics. ANd call it easy listening, but I would be betraying my senses if I said I didn't like it, and I would really be betraying my senses if I said I liked Calculating Infinity better. It challenges me as a listener and I like that. But it only challenges and nothing else. Sorry DEP fans. Take it or leave it.

Dillinger Escape Plan practically invented the art of "noisecore" back in '99 with their first full-length album Calculating Infinity. This batch of crazies from New Jersey are some of the best musicians in ANY genre. Warping and fluctuating time signatures into irregular, hyperviolent, pulsing blasts of metal, this album is definitely not for the timid, but is one helluva ride.
The one predictable aspect of DEP's sound is that they are relentlessly unpredictable. However, as random as it all seems, each composition is very mapped out and the band is so tight and in control behind their instruments you'd swear they were psychic. And this ain't masturbatory self-indulgence, either--there's nary a solo to be found, and it doesn't need them. It would only take away from Calculating Infinity's brutal mathematical onslaught. Vocalist Dimitri's voice almost never wavers from a vicious incomprehensible scream, and while it takes some getting used to the vocals are totally appropriate for this brand of insanity. Of special note is drummer Chris Pennie, whose skills behind the kit are just downright sick, and never resorting to the cliche blastbeats that most extreme metal bands use.
Anyway, I don't think there's a single guitar, bass, or drumline in straight 4/4 anywhere on this disc. Opener Sugar Coated Sour unleashes the first of many mind-boggling assaults. Jim Fear is thrash filtered through DEP's trademark spazziness, while 43% Burnt, the longest track at 4:30 or so, is a slab of abrasive stop-start grindcore that is sure to irritate all normal and well-adjusted people. The Running Board and Clip The Apex.. toggle between full-out hammering mode and breathtaking jazzy breakdowns.

...but is that such a bad thing? Surprisingly enough, judging by the sales rank of this album and considering that it was released in 1999, this album definitely made an impact. There's actually quite an audience for this type of music - who knew? You can't call this album metalcore, grindcore, or anything else really - it pretty much defies categorization. But if you do play this and decide to turn it up, don't leave any artwork on the wall or any glass objects too close to the speakers. If you think Korn or Limp Bizkit are heavy, this will probably scare the living daylights out of you. Most impressive is the technical precision of this band - unlike bands who seem to be violently assaulting their instruments, these guys are quite talented, especially the guitarist and drummer. The only thing that would make this album better is if they added a few more songs - at 37 minutes it leaves you wanting more. Here's hoping we hear a follow up from these guys soon and that their new frontman Greg does well - he's got some pretty big shoes to fill.
