the Dillinger Escape Plan are brilliant. There’s just no other way of explaining how good they really are. I’ve read the ‘bad things’ about them..(that they’ve sold out, that the music makes no sense and goes nowhere, you can’t understand what the singer is saying)..but people writing those reviews/saying those things are normally just kids who listen to Trivium and Killswitch Engage. They’re not yet ready to sit down and fully listen to something as complex as the Dillinger Escape Plan.
Personally, i respect the Dillinger Escape Plan for being truly different in a genre such as Hardcore/Math-Metal. I respect them also for being excellent musicians. Their songs are often memorable and can be stuck in your head for days. I can’t even count how many of their songs get stuck in my head..43% Burnt, Unretrofied, Clip The Apex..Accept Instruction, We Are The Storm..there are alot of songs of theirs that are both insanely technical and catchy.
This E.P is quite short, but with 3 songs on it you’d kind of expect that. I must admit, i bought this for “The Mullet Burden”..but was pleasantly surprised with the other 2 songs. “The Mullet Burden” truly is noisy. Which is good. This whole E.P is noisy, in fact. Which is good. The only catch is that it’s quite short, with only 3 songs on it. But then again, it is about quality not quantity..and the Dillinger Escape Plan always delivers quality.
This, i think, is mainly for fans. Probably not a starting point.
