If you like any of the following bands, you will probably like The Dillinger Escape Plan.
The Dillinger Escape Plan (Aka 'DEP') is one of the most intense Math Metal bands you will ever hear.
They incorporate elements of Metal, Jazz, Latin, and Electronica into their tunes; and frick is it awesome.
They boast some of the most intense, raw, and energetic live shows you'll ever go to. Don't believe me?
They've featured Brent Hinds from Mastodon, as well as Mike Patton (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Fantomas, Countless Other Bands) for a whole EP (My favourite DEP album is the one they did with Mike Patton).
Heck, they even use a Theremin at one point in their "Ire Works" album.
If you are looking for something to give you energy, and feel that you can handle it being frantic, then DEP is for you.
Some of their more "accessible" rock-type songs have been featured on TV in shows like CSI. Anyone who likes intense rock can get into that.
Their more hard-core music? Well…
...that might be more for people who are intense into metal.
There's definitely a lot of "poppy" vibes off of them though. All their riffs are just...catchy! Even their most ridiculously choppy math-metal riffs have some sort of groove to them.
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
