A Bit Heavier Than Most
If you like pure insanity transformed into music...
If you like technical, super-fast, mind-boggling riffs...
If you're tired of the same old emo screamo...
Then The Dillinger Escape Plan is right for you!
Download "The Mullet Burden", "Sandbox Magician", or "Abe The Cop" for a few good examples of their music.
i doubt if people are tired of emo and screamo--the case is most likely they haven't heard any [see REAL emo and REAL screamo].
but anyway, i heard miss machine a while ago and liked it. now i have calculating infinity and haven't heard any yet. i don't doubt that i'll like it, even though i prefer my music with more structure. so are you a fan of tech metal/math metal in general?
Not math, but the technicality of Avant Garde Jazz in metal is something I always appreciate.
ah, i see. well, it's glad to have another one of you on this forum, although i can't say i agree. for about 15 years and 3 months of my life, i didn't like or appreciate jazz, or rather couldn't discern the underlying but subtle fondness i had for it. even so, i think i'd only been introduced to smooth jazz. now, almost 4 months later, i realize that i do like a bit of it (even a little smooth jazz...but i do say LITTLE), and i appreciate it more, and perhaps have a deeper understanding of it, but still haven't heard very much from it.
i don't know what avant garde jazz is, but given the meaning of avant garde, i'm thinking something along the lines of free jazz. btw, i've been trying to check out some good jazz fusion, nu-jazz, and acid jazz bands/artists (i'd be more keen to bands opposed to solo acts). if you've got any recommendations for any kind of jazz at all though, i'd love to hear them.
Avant Garde is just that. Music on a higher form. No time Signatures, no tempo, just emotion channelled through the medium of music.
Anyways, you like the structure so check out Zero 7, Mercury Program, Chick Corea, and the Dave Weckl Band.
