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 deserve..you 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.
