Miss Machine





Most hardcore-metal crossover bands sound like shit with a distortion pedal. Fortunately, there is always an exception to a rule and that is exactly where The Dillinger Escape Plan creep in. Jazz rhythms, volatile time changes, and chaotic vocal bellows separated Dillinger from the rest when they pounded out their debut in 1997. Dillinger created a sound so technical and absurd that the term “math rock” was the common idiom used to describe it. After a few line-up changes, a jaw-dropping full-length album and even an EP collaboration with Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle), New Jersey’s own Dillinger has finally released their second full-length, Miss Machine. The first song, “Panasonic Youth,” shreds just as loud as one off their last album but by the third song you’re aware that this is no continuation. Dillinger has fused their signature sound with elements of electronica, industrial and black metal to create a brutal but more discernable record. Who’d ever thought dissonance could sound so good?
