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.
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.Read more ›
