The Dillinger Escape Plan - Miss Machine


Here it lies before me, the latest sickening creation of a band called The Dillinger Escape Plan. For those who aren’t familiar with this band (be ashamed!), Dillinger has created a style that has been growing rapidly over the last few years. Taking metalcore for a base and adding a lethal dose of grindcore, free-jazz and a lot of experimental sounds, this ladies and gentlemen, is HELL for those who don’t know music. It’s about as technical as it can get and rhythmical impossible. One of the best bands on this earth, if I do say so myself.



The biggest progress on this album is on the vocal front. The screams sound better and more powerful, while the melodic parts sound better than ever before. Singing, screaming, grunting, everything is done on a high level. The only thing I do have to mention is that I noticed that some vocals are very much comparable with Mike Patton stuff, especially in the track "Phone Home". It reminded me of a track on "The Director’s Cut", the second Fantômas album.

Technically I think I like the previous full-length album Calculating Infinity better due to it being even more hectic and chaotic than this one. Not that this one is a easy listener to the untrained ear…

The guitars and drums are probably for 99.9% of all musicians impossible to copy. These are the most fucked up riffs on the planet, combined with drum rhythms that blast you on every front. And I do have to emphasize that this drummer and these guitarists are REALY REALY good.


The only bad remark I have is that I find the artwork terrible. I can see the meaning behind it, but I think it is awfully ugly. Can't help it, sorry.


If you liked the previous Dillinger records, you’ll definitely appreciate this one. And if you thought it was too tough for you, don’t worry it has a ballad on it too this time!


So go buy this amazing record, annoy your parents until they threaten to kill you, witness their live show right in front of the stage and make sure you have a medical insurance.
