Yup, The Dillinger Escape Plan, who I only knew because of the fact that I found out they were touring along with The Faceless. should I be ashamed by that? Well, nope, I am not. Should I be surprised by them? ‘Cause I certainly am, sir.
Though not being straight-up Metal in your face they do have some aspects and things in their music that sound pretty harsh.
They have many “faces” to show, that’s pretty cool. For instance, I found out some Jazzy influences (that are pretty notorius actually) on the drummer’s work. I liked the guitars, the whacky melodies out of the blue and the progressive work they do. A thing I really liked is the presence they give to the bass, it is up there for everyone to hear, #noshame. I really didn’t like the vocal parts that much, that’s just me but I don’t really like these kinds of vocals (in this kind of genre in particular).
Overall they do sound great. I’m glad I finally listened to these guys this morning because they have some kick ass sounding songs. What I didn’t like about them (and maybe that’s mainly my fault) is that I found some of the songs, though original as they can be, all of their peaks seem to converge in a hardcore-ish sound that sounds a little too repetitive to me.
