Stockholm mathcore/grind outfit God Mother have announced the release of their sophomore full-length album. The record, which follows 2015’s Maktbehov, will be titled Vilseledd and will be released on September 29 via Party Smasher, Inc. Label founder and The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman said this of the band:
“After 20 years of touring the world and playing thousands of shows with thousands of bands, it is hard to impress me. But Sweden has done it again. God Mother is an undeniable force majeure that demands attention like bands did in the old days, by just being that fucking good. Torch, officially passed!”
Yo. I’m pumped to put out my final installment of March Madness. I wanted to do a video for this one, as I own it on vinyl and it would be rad crossover for my YouTube channel. So, check out my review of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s second EP Under The Running Board. Fuck yeah. Continue Reading
It seemed like a lot of people jumped on The Dillinger Escape Plan wagon after their 2nd album Miss Machine was released. The band spent what seemed like an eternity following up their classic debut Calculating Infinity and the resulting sophomore record was exceptionally timely. Bands like Everytime I Die, Converge, and As I Lay Dying were fashioning the foundations of their careers by fusing Metal, Hardcore, and other genres together. There appeared to be no better time for the band that was the best at this fusion to show everyone how it was done.
As with every other music blog or publication, we at Svbterranean are obligated to give you our silly opinions on what were the top albums of the year. I could list every single release I enjoyed this year, but I am limited on patience and writing ability. So, I was able to narrow it down to a modest 30. These are records that, not limited to just metal and hardcore either, that stuck with me long after the initial listen. Feel free to peruse the list below and tell me how my opinion is bullshit, because I will probably agree with you.
For 20 years The Dillinger Escape Plan have maintained their status as one of extreme music’s most technically proficient, influential, forward-thinking and devastating acts on record and off. The band helped pave the way for the niche subgenre mathcore and their presence can be felt in all things technical and complex. Naturally when a band that is held to such a high regard as Dillinger announces their breakup, the sadness can be felt throughout the music community. But while fans may still reel from the loss of one of their favorite bands, they can find some solace in how dense and monolithic their swansong is. The band wanted to go out while they are still on top and Dissociation they go out swinging.
The Dillinger Escape Plan have premiered a new track from their forthcoming final full-length, Dissociation, on Revolver Magazine’s “The World’s Loudest Podcast”. Titled “Symptom of Terminal Illness”, the new track weaves together the band’s usual chaotic methods with ethereal atmospheres, intricate melodies and Greg Puciato’s commanding, Mike Patton-esque vocal performance. Check out the track here (song begins around the 2:00 mark).
Dissociation will be released on October 14.
The Dillinger Escape Plan recently premiered a new track from their highly-anticipated upcoming album, Dissociation, on BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter. The new track is titled “Limerent Death” and it is as complex and eclectic as Dillinger gets. The track will also be available as a 7″ single that will be available on the band’s upcoming tour dates (which can be seen below), with an official retail date of September 9. Check out the track right here (skip ahead to 2:00:00).
