The Dillinger Escape Plan

The Dillinger Escape Plan create maniacally intense, crushingly metallic, and decidedly hardcore punk-infused jazz-time-signature-invoking compositions displaying an unparalleled musical bravery, precision musicianship, meticulously thought-out, and complex structuring, and rigorous physical endurance. The band's guitarists and drummer are regular features in publications geared toward the guitar- and drum-playing set. The depth of extremity and mental challenge presented by their music virtually defies description, at once recalling the mind-wandering spirit of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, the complex heavy metal of latter-day Death, Cynic's solitary death metal achievement, and the progressive hard rock of Rush. Their performances bring to mind the anarchic charge of early Guns N' Roses shows, and the sophistication that drives their craft should awe fans of classy art rock bands like Radiohead.

The beginning of the Dillinger Escape Plan can be traced back to a relatively average hardcore band called Arcane, which during its last performance featured vocalist Dimitri Minakakis, guitarists Ben Weinman and Derrick Brantley, drummer Chris Pennie, and then fill-in bassist Adam Doll. The band played two shows with this lineup under the name Dillinger Escape Plan before Brantley exited the group. They next recorded a demo, which a then-new label called Now or Never Records offered to release on CD. New guitarist John Fulton was recruited shortly before the band's first tour. The Dillinger Escape Plan's frenetic, intense, and sometimes violently spastic performances became the talk of the hardcore scene. Relapse Records representatives heard about a particularly engaging performance at Philadelphia's Stalag 13 and went to see them at another Pennsylvania gig. Soon after, a multi-record deal was inked.

Fulton left the band shortly before the 1998 release of the band's debut EP for the label Under the Running Board, on which Weinman handled all guitar duties. The three-song teaser built up anticipation for their 1999 debut full-length record, Calculating Infinity, a jaw-droppingly intense, mathematical, and inspired opus of immense technical proportion. Before the record was made, Doll was involved in a serious car accident that resulted in him being partially paralyzed and unable to continue recording or performing with the band. Around the same time, Jesuit guitarist Brian Benoit joined the band, replacing Fulton. The album was a smash success in the underground, igniting a succession of imitators and accolades from the underground and more mainstream press alike. Calculating Infinity also garnered the attention of former Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton, who, after seeing a videotape of the band in action, invited them to come out on the road supporting his avant-garde act Mr. Bungle. The band enlisted former M.O.D. bassist and fellow New Jersey native Jeff Wood as temporary touring help.

Following the Mr. Bungle tour, the Dillinger Escape Plan embarked upon a long string of headlining dates and co-headlining shows with Candiria, trekking back and forth around the United States. Their live shows became increasingly intense, incorporating samples, a light show, fireworks, and, at one time, a fire breather. After several months of heavy-duty road work, including notable festival appearances on the Warped Tour and March Metal Meltdown, the group relieved Wood -- who continued to front his own Shat project -- of his duties, enlisting a more permanent replacement for Doll in the form of a Philly resident named Liam. In 2000 Now or Never re-released the band's self-titled record with bonus tracks. Sometime after a trip to Europe with their friends in Botch, the Dillinger Escape Plan parted ways with Minakakis. They played a few shows as an instrumental act and a couple of final shows with Minakakis, one as part of Japan's Beast Feast Festival and another near their hometown. After that, they embarked on a nationwide search for the singer's replacement via their website, putting up a vocal-less version of the song "43% Burnt" and asking prospective hopefuls to download it, record their own singing, and send it to the group. While collecting CD-Rs from fans and wannabe singers, the Dillingers stayed busy, recording two songs for a Black Flag tribute album, a new EP's worth of material (which Patton agreed to sing on), and playing Krazy Fest in Louisville, Kentucky, with friend and Coalesce vocalist Sean Ingram guesting.

In late 2001, the group met with a singer named Greg Puciato, who had greatly impressed them with his CD-R submission. After two practices, they offered him the job and he graciously accepted. He made his debut appearance with the band at the 2001 CMJ Music Festival in New York City. His hulking physical presence and spot-on screaming won over fans as they embarked upon a national headlining tour, which was cut short when System of a Down offered to bring the group over to Europe in spring 2002. In March 2002, the Dillinger Escape Plan announced that they would be releasing their Mike Patton-fronted EP Irony Is a Dead Scene via California punk label Epitaph. Puciato made his full-length debut on 2004's Miss Machine. In June 2006 the group released an EP of cover songs exclusively on iTunes titled Plagiarism, and the following year marked the departure of drummer Chris Pennie. He was replaced by Gil Sharone of Stolen Babies, who took the drum stool for the especially innovative follow-up, Ire Works, released in November 2007. After the release of Ire Works, the Dillingers left their label, Relapse, in favor of starting their own label. In 2010 they self-released their fourth studio album, Option Paralysis, through their Party Smasher imprint. Their fifth album, the more visceral One of Us Is the Killer, arrived on the imprint in 2013. ~ Ryan J. Downey, Rovi

I got Option Paralysis (Deluxe) and One Of Us Is The Killer and both albums are great! 26 songs together. Great work in the last 3 years. Option Paralysis is great but One Of Us Is The Killer sounds a bit harder. Love DEP!

I first heard that these guy's were one of Mike Pattons many other bands. Then I listened to them and noticed it was Greg Puciato and Mike only did Irony is a Dead Scene and a few other tracks. The Dillinger Escape Plan is what I wake up to and go to sleep too.
loubro2006
I want option paralysis and one of us is the killer so bad!! DEP rules! Progressive metal is awesome!
Awesome
A fast version of Primus, huh?! I don't think I could disagree any more with you than I do now
They're just a fast version of Primus.
Exellent band :)
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
Going to go see these guys in TheSummerSla u g h t e r T o u r around July in Atlanta!! Can't wait!!!
This song is perfect for my mood .
F**king monsters!
Pure genius ...
These guys remind me of the fray & coldplay, hahaha, j effing k.
W.T.F. I dont even know what to think when i hear these guys!! either genius or insanity!
their live performance at warped tour '10 was f**kin awesome
This track is a great psychedelic experience. I highly recommend it!
xhidden99
Often it's a less crappy version of Mars Volta
s**ts f**ked!! in a good way! they're original sounding
I love Dillinger!!! ! !
Pure Shakespearea n hogwash!
i love dillinger, expecially with patton
The Fishtank Escape Plan
An amazing band with pure energy at their shows!
Irony is dead IS siiick! Some of Patton's hardest. The breakdown in When Good Dogs Do Bad Things gets me every time
Dillinger always reminded me of mahavishnu orchestra being dragged through hell. Great shyte
Too bad Mike Patton didn't stay on as permanent singer. Irony is a Dead Scene is sick!
bad a** live just saw them a few days ago on tour with the deftones... great concert
when my mayonnnaise hit the floor I was pissed. Good thing the fish was well preserved. Forget those that dont appreciate the nuance.
s**tty band. sorry i dont like it, but to each his own
On tour with the Deftones. What an amazing show that'll be.
Know why they left Relapse? Cuz Relapse wanted more Milk Lizard, Black Bubblegum, Setting Fire To Sleeping Giants, and Unretrofied. So they started Party Smasher Inc. on Season of Mist and gave us Option Paralysis. Best one with Greg yet. I'm glad he still sings. Widower drives you up a mountain then throws you off a cliff, and Parasitic Twins finishes the album off nicely. The rest is the tightest they've ever been. Chris Pennie can have CnC; their name sounds like a law firm. Enough said.
This band is absolute chaos and i love it!
I like every album but Ire Works the least. Guess which one Pandora plays? :D
new record kicks a**. much better than ire works.
mrfaithless
dillinger sucks without dimitri. that is all.
Calculating Infinity is their best album? More like ALL their albums are their best album.
coheed does suck with their plain boring a** pentatonic. dillinger is way more talented and innovative.
f**kin a
phone home is a bad a** song
f**k yes!!! why have i never listened to this group before.
tarekredmoon 8 coheed is garbage. the singer sounds like a girl. dillinger rapes coheed. i double what drummer say. pennies talent far exceed what coheed has to offer. what a fucken moron.
abe the cop kick a** song
yes once again in response to tarekredmoon 8 ,

You must be stupid if you think Dillinger did not allow him to express his talents. I would have to reverse what you said and say that Pennies talents far exceed what Coheed has to offer you stupid f**k. Dillinger allowed Chris to give it all hes got.
calculating infinity is their best album.
Hit and miss for me. Mostly hit.
I love this.
fooly_me_coo l y
This band is pretty sick, nice vocals.
this is to tarekredmoon 8
you are f**king stupid, yes chris penne did make a good move by going to coheed, for the money aspect.
but talent wise dillenger blows coheed away.
everything dillenger has is tech and coheed has guitars.
I saw them 3 years ago. Quite the experience. Wholesome and family friendly entertainmen t .
