Album Review

Before they issued their full-length debut in 1999 (Calculating Infinity), the Dillinger Escape Plan issued a pair of EPs — 1997's self-titled release, and 1998's Under the Running Board. The latter weighed in at only a meager three tracks (and contained a running time of only 7:33), before being reissued ten years later — almost to the exact day — with an expanded track listing. Under the Running Board 2008 consists of 13 tracks total — with the added ten tracks being almost all live recordings (save for an album-closing cover of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid"). Although it's been ten years since Under the Running Board first dropped, it's still as fierce as ever — it sounded like very little else (for better of for worse) back in 1998. "The Mullet Burden," "Abe the Cop" — they're all still equally ferocious blasts of metallic cacophony.

Just Awesome

If you like tDEP and you haven't heard this ep... you've really missed out. When this thing came out it was absolutely insanity. seeing them live was one of the craziest experiences i have ever encountered. i remember being at the rotunda in philly and some dude jumping off the balcony into the crowd after the first break down. this band was the "metal math core" (if such a ridiculous title exists) leaders. amongst the ranks of other amazing bands like coalesce, botch, drowningman, converge... all of these "heavy hitters" were growing in their fan-base, with recognition and just pure adrenaline and intensity. emotion tearing apart every fragment of skin. it was awesome. now... you can sorta kinda not really relive that through these very nicely recorded bonus live tracks (which i love the added live samples, they help create a tension in the music and the moment) and as a nice added bonus.. the never released black sabbath cover... from the never released relapse/hydrahead project.

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...
