Released: Mar 2010
Label: Season Of Mist
The first album for their own Party Smasher label (in association with France's Season of Mist), this fourth full-length offers 10 extended forays into mathematical extreme metal with a somewhat pronounced attention to melodic choruses. With the seriously singable opener and "Gold Teeth on a Bum," the Dillinger Escape Plan seem as intent on reaching the kids as decoding the mysteries of the Universe through guitar, bass and drum. But fear not, longtime fans, the melodies come at a high price, with plenty of lightspeed hardcore, shuddering moshes and unhinged screaming for everybody.
