Dillinger Escape Plan – “Calculating Infinity” LP
A landmark record, sold heaps of them back in the day, great to have it back again. A crazed, nightmare-ish combination of scattershot beats, overworked guitar shredding and unrelenting twists and turns, all discharged with a ferocious violence that still inflicts fresh pain twenty years later. Althought there are indications on Calculating Infinity of the experimental rock that was to come later in Dillinger’s career, this debut album remains their most hardcore-punk recording, closely alligned to Botch, Coalesce, Drowning Man and Kiss It Goodbye. Available once again in 2021 on coloured vinyl.
