Dillinger Escape Plan

The perfect answer to that was the headlining event at the Gypsy Lounge, the annual Thrasher Death Match. After a super inspired set by New York City hardcore veterans Sick of It All, math metal juggernauts The Dillinger Escape Plan played their one and only show of the festival. Admittedly, the band is not for the faint of heart, as their show is one of pure, unadulterated chaos. But they are brilliant and unpredictable in every way possible. For the first, vocalist Greg Puciato and guitarist/founding member Ben Weinman are the definition of unhinged. Like Achilles in the movie Troy, you don't need to control them, only unleash them. There was practically no more than thirty seconds at any point in the set where they were stationary. Puciato spent as much time singing in or with the crowd as he did on stage, and climbed lightwalls and speakers jumping into the crowd from every possible vantage point. Weinman did spin kicks off speakers, flung his guitar in circles and at one point even played his parts on top of the crowd with Puciato doing the same. - [mxdwn]
