The Dillinger Escape Plan is an experimental mathcore band thatintegrates metal, hardcore, free jazz,varyingtimesignatures,andelectronicsamples.They are known for the intensity and tooclose for comfort violence of their liveshows,which havebeenknown tofeaturestage-diving and fire-breathing. The band isrumored to choose their music's timesignatures with the aid ofdice, or withthe use of somekindofcode, but this ispurelyspeculation. What isn't speculation istheir technicalprowess.The band's name refers to JohnDillinger,ainfamousAmericancriminal who madenumerous bankheistsand prison breaks in the 1930's.Even though the name wasspontaneouslychosenduringthedissolutionoftheirpreviousband,Arcane, it metaphorically represents the band'sstyle since Mr. Dillinger's solution to everythingwasto"shootyourway out."[in-depthbiography]...The Dillinger Escape Plan arose outof the ashes of a mediocre 'Jersey hardcorebandnamedArcaneinthe late 1990's. Arcaneconsisted ofDmitri Minakakis (vocals),Ben Weinman (guitar),Chris Pennie(percussion), AdamDoll(bass),andJeffBrantley (guitar). The group recorded ademo forNow orNever Records under thename 'The Dillinger Escape Plan'andimmediately theblandband Arcane was no more. Before their firstshowsunderthenew name, Brantley left the bandand wasquicklyreplacedby the giftedguitaristJohn Fulton. After recognition(mainly fromthe buzzsurroundingtheir liveshows) and acontractfrom Relapse Records thebandrecorded theUnder theRunningBoard EP and soon afterwards Fulton leftthe bandandwas replaced by formerJesuitguitaristBrianBenoit.Shortlybefore the recording of the breakthrough full length,CalculatingInfinity,Adam Doll was paralyzedfromthechestdown in a caraccident and would eventually be replaced withformerStarkweatherbassist LiamWilson.Thetechnicallyproficientjazzand grindinfluenced full lengthCalculatingInfinity gained theband some seriousattention,andarguablyfor thisreason, longstandingotherpersonal reasons the band'svocalist Dmitri Minakakis left the band. Theband allowedfor openauditionstoreplace himbypostinginstrumentalversion of one oftheir most famous tracks, 43%Burnt, on their website andallowinganyone to perform their ownvocals forthesong.Theband decided on Baltimore, MDnative Greg Puciato. In themeantime,Sean IngramofCoalesce and MikePattonofFaithNoMoredid someguest vocals for the band. Pattoneven worked with the other members whilstrecording theIronyIsADeadSceneEP.In 2004, RelapseRecords released theband's first full length album with new singer GregPuciatoentitledMissMachine.Itturnedout to be a major success but didshowa significant change in Dillinger's sound. Also in2004whiletouring for their new release,Benoitsuffered nervedamageto his left hand and hasbeen unable to tour with the bandsince.Inlate2006, founding member Chris Pennie,lefttheband tojoinCoheed andCambria afterDillinger toured withthenew progoutfit that year. To replaceBenoit,JeffTuttle(formerlyofHeadsWill Roll and Capture theFlag)joinedthe band. Gil Sharone ofthe avantgardebandStolenBabiestookover percussion dutiesfor their newestalbum IreWorks, which wasreleased in 2007byRelapseRecords.IreWorks has been metwith mixedreviews asitfeaturedmuch more electronics and less of thechaotic hardcore- infused metalthat the bandbecame famousfor.Currently, it isunknown ifSharone is still a permanent memberof the band.For thetime being, a younglad namedBillyRhymeristakingoverdrum duties for the band'slive shows.In the summer of2009, after Relapse allowed their contract to expire,thebandsignedwithindependentlabel Season of Mist.Season of Mistis best known for their array of foreign pure metal bands,butrecently released amajorhitwithlegendaryAmericanprogressive metal outfit Cynic and theirreunion album Traced InAir.Ben Weinman (theband'sonlyremainingfoundingmember) has saidthat the yplan to release anew album early in2010 and it is expected that the band will bebackin studio withlong-time producerSteveEvettsin July of 2009.Weinmanhas expressed his desire to have Dillinger's musicappeal to aunderground fan base andhassaid thattheirnewmaterial isdark and dreary with heavy thrash metalinfluence. « hide
