Last night at Webster Hall the Dillinger Escape Plan blew my goddamn face off 😀
It was my first and last time seeing them perform live with this being a sort of farewell tour for them and it was INSANE. I love bands like this that have been real and authentic from the beginning, inspiring so many other bands to form in the past 20 years but none of them ever really comparing to the originality of everything that is DEP. phew!
Everyone warned me their live shows were crazy, and I’ve had my share of wild times in the mosh, but I wasn’t prepared for this mayhem and it was Beautiful. Sigh, if only every band went this hard. The closest I’ve seen in recent years are the sets from Every Time I Die. (They’ll be playing with Beartooth on Halloween this year in NYC)
The band has been gracious enough to leave us metalheads with a parting gift, a new album titled Dissociation that stands to inspire musicians for years to come. I have mad respect for Mathcore techniques and love coming across bands that keep the music unpredictable, damn near genre-less and freeform. Definitely gracious I was able to witness what makes these guys a legendary movement.
