Hardcore heathens Retox will unleash their new record Beneath California next month and the band has released a very fun music video for their song “Let’s Not Keep In Touch.” The video features one of my lifelong dreams: to be chased by Dillinger Escape Plan‘s Greg Puciato with a baseball bat. Lucky fuck. You can check out the video below. It’s rad. Enjoy. Continue reading
The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman recently took to Instagram to tease new material he has been working on for the band. The brief clip of the new track can be seen below.
Weinman was also in the studio recent recording material with Giraffe Tongue Orchestra with producer Ross Robinson. No word yet on when that project will see the light of day.
The Dillinger Escape Plan have been teamed up with rapper Jarren Benton for a Converse compilation titled Cons EP Vol. 2, which sounds to me like a revamped version of Judgement Night. The collaborative track is titled “Rage” and it’s pretty phenomenal. Jarren‘s rapping over whacky Dillinger riffs rules. You can check out the music video for the effort after the jump.

Killer Be Killed, the supergroup featuring members of Soulfly, Mastodon and The Dillinger Escape Plan has released it’s first music video for the track “Wings Of Feather And Wax.” This happens to be my favorite track on the album and I am stoked to get a music video to accompany it. The video is superbly-shot performance footage and it’s great. Check it out below. Continue reading
Metal supergroup Killer Be Killed (featuring members of Mastodon, Soulfly, The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.) released a new song the other day called “I.E.D.” and here we are now and the band has unleashed the full power of their debut album! I have spoken of my adoration for these tunes and I am stoked to finally get a chance to listen to the album in full. It’s just as good as I thought it would be. Rad. Check out a full stream of Killer Be Killed below, courtesy of MetalSucks. Continue reading
Killer Be Killed, the supergroup founded by members of Soulfly, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Mars Volta and Mastodon are currently streaming a new track off of their forthcoming, self-titled debut. I have only listened to one other song off of this album and I gotta say that I’m digging what’s going on here. It’s interesting and I dig it. You can check out the track “I.E.D.” after the jump. What do you think? Continue reading
The supergroup featuring members of Soulfly, Mastodon, The Mars Volta, and The Dillinger Escape Plan, Killer Be Killed, have debuted two new songs from their forthcoming full length debut. The band’s lineup consists of Troy Sanders (Mastodon), Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), and Dave Elitch (Ex Mars Volta). The two tracks are entitled “Wings of Feather and Wax” and “Face Down” and are chock full of groove metal riffs, which is not surprising considering Cavalera’s input. I am curious as to what you all think of this highly anticipated project. You can stream the tracks after the break.
Killer Be Killed will be released on May 13th via Nuclear Blast. You can pre-order your copy here.
In addition to their forthcoming North American tour with Trash Talk, Retox and Shining, The Dillinger Escape Plan have announced the second leg of the tour. These new handful of dates will feature support from poppy math rockers Tera Melos and black metal outfit Vattnet Viskar. You can check out all current tour dates after the break.
Well what a fucking tour this one is. The Dillinger Escape Plan, Retox, Trash Talk and (Norway’s) Shining are teaming up for one beast of a tour for the month of April. I mean, holy shit, is that a line-up or what? I’m personally not a fan of Shining (not this one anyway), but the other three are all amazing bands. You can check out the full poster and dates after the jump. Continue reading
This has been an amazing year for music. Not just metal, but a great year for all styles and genres. I have enjoyed so many different styles of music this year as well as many, many artists within each style and it was a real pain for me to make this list. I keep this list simply to full-length albums (or LPs, kids). I used to keep it strictly metal when it came to this list and I would weed out rock for its own list, but this year I included non-metal stuff on my list as well. Not a lot of non-metal, but some nonetheless. Continue reading
James Kelly, vocalist and guitarist of Altar of Plagues, also has an electronic project under the name Wife, who has just released something very interesting: a remix of The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s “One of Us Is The Killer.” You can stream the dark, ominous remix after the jump.
Personally, I think it’s pretty killer. Continue reading
Six months in to this glorious year and I have been bombarded with so much good music that I can hardly handle it and there’s still six months left! My little heart may not be able to make to 2014. So out of all the new releases I have listened to this year, these are the handful that I keep going back to over and over because of their brilliance. Check these albums out before the year is up!
Old Gods, the Detroit-based hardcore act featuring former Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Jeff Tuttle, has unleashed a vicious (and strange…) music video for their new song “From Beyond” which will appear on Old Gods‘ debut full-length album Stylized Violence.
The video is awesome, weird as all hell, but awesome. Interested? Click on after the jump to get a whole face-load of Old Gods. Continue reading
Thank god for Mitch Massie. Once again the director teamed up with The Dillinger Escape Plan, who did their psychotic video for “When I Lost My Bet”, to put together their surreal and gory video for the title track off their new record One of Us is the Killer. Mr. Massie can do no wrong when it comes to creating aesthetically jarring videos. I tip my hat to him. Check out this sordid affair below.

At this point in their career The Dillinger Escape Plan has become notorious for pushing their creative envelop while still maintaining their signature painful barrage of frenzied “mathcore” riffage. It’s been three years since the release of Option Paralysis, an album that mixed the experimental quirks of Ire Works with the bludgeoning rhythmic attacks of previous efforts. One of Us is the Killer is the abomination Dillinger has been crafting in the dark these past three years that dials back the upfront poppy experimentation of Option just a tad in favor of excruciatingly detailed musical puzzles of pure power and ferocity. Dare I say that One of Us is the Killer combines the best moments of their discography into one?
