The Coolest Thing They Ever Released

Being a huge Mike Patton fan, and also a huge Dillinger fan. I wouldve never imagined those two worlds colliding into something this amazing. Besides the lackluster 'Come To Daddy' cover, while still kinda cool just sort of falls flat somehwere in the middle. The first three songs are absolute chaos, full of sick hardcore mayhem and mind boggling experimentalism the band (and of course Mr. Patton) are known for. Ive noticed with this band, that the vocalists really control the shape and direction of their sound. Patton injects it with a sense of sheer psychosis it never accomplished before this release. With his inhuman shrieks, flawless singing, and overall lunacy; Mike Patton leaves his mark on the world of technical hardcore with such a memorable performance. 'When Good Dogs Do Bad Things' is arguably Dillinger's finest moment. You can hear the last of their old sound dying within that song.

Damn Good

The combination of Mike Patton with the Dillinger Escape Plan (who probably have the coolest band name at the moment) is excellent.... if you ignore "Come to Daddy" which, while pretty decent, doesn't live up to the hype of a DEP/Patton EP.

Wont hear anything like this ever again

So I have been listening to this EP for years now and it still sends chills down my spine. The combination of DEP and Patton was something that really allowed them to produce some of the best music I have EVER heard. There is little I can really say to impress upon how good this stuff is. If you even remotely enjoy dillinger, patton, or consider yourself someone of a heavy music fan then buy it and listen on repeat. I wish this could have evolved into something more but at the same time am glad it didn't so these songs can never be cheapened from the risk of generating a stale sound. Totally in a world of its own.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

The Dillinger Escape Plan create maniacally intense, crushingly metallic, and decidedly hardcore punk-infused jazz-time-signature-invoking compositions displaying an unparalleled musical bravery, precision musicianship, meticulously thought-out, and complex structuring, and rigorous physical endurance. The band's guitarists and drummer are regular features in publications geared toward the guitar- and drum-playing set. The depth of extremity and mental challenge presented by their music virtually...
