MELTGSNOW: BLACK PENANCE ALBUM LAUNCH

Heavy but light-hearted.

Metal is probably one of the most misunderstood rock genres. Associated with dark themes, metal often gets religious groups all riled up but really, a metal performance is no more “satanic” than a rendition of the Faust opera!

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN Option Paralysis (Party Smasher Inc)

I guess you could say that this is the sound of youth circa 2010. It’s heavy, progressive, visceral, technically brilliant and yes, even melodic (harmony vocals even). DEP incorporates a variety of styles and genres rather creatively to produce music that is confrontational and yet hypnotically soothing as well. Go figure. I like it.

For someone who has been listening to rock music for more than 30 years, I can truly appreciate the different strands of rock music that DEP string together to form a coherent whole. I mean, astute listeners (and that’s you, of course) will pick up the influence of heavy metal, hardcore punk, prog and everything in-between in this enthralling mix.

Yeah, there is a method in DEP’s madness. Within the crunching guitars, pummeling drums, screeching vocals and the frenetic, staccato rhythms lie music that is dedicated to chaos AND order. Which to me is the perfect description of our modern world. Probably not the favoured music of most of PoP visitors but you might be surprised by what you hear. Give it a chance…
