The Dillinger Escape Plan - Irony is a Dead Scene

  1. I just downloaded this EP (don't worry, I'm buying just won't come out for a month) featuring Mike Patton and I think it's freaking amazing. I always admired DEP's instrumental talents but now that they got rid of that awful vocalist they used to have they sound so much cooler...maybe that's because Patton is a genius. Great stuff!

    dimitri's vocals were amazing. mike patton is a genius, but he is only doing vocals on this ep. there new vocalist is what is terrible. i have seen them about 8 times, twice with the new guy, and it just isnt the same. dillingers music is definitley moving in a more prog-core direction with more experimentation, yet rocking harder than ever, but their new vocalist is gonna hold them back.

    I've heard some of it, and its outstanding. The stuff I've heard wasn't the hardest stuff of their's I've heard, but I do think it's the best. Besides, how can you go wrong with a cover of Aphex Twin's "Come to Daddy"? I'm definitely going to get a copy.

    i haven't heard the mike patton recordings, although i love everything he does. but their new permenant vocalist, i guy named greg, doesn't have the same live esponse and intensity as dimitri (their old vocalist on all their other recordings). greg can be heard on the upcoming black flag tribute on initial records, dillinger covers damaged I & II. should be hot.
  8. Jesus, I HATE that guy...he's what kept DEP from being really good, in my opinion. Thank god they got rid of him and recruited Mike for the ep.

    well, whether or not you liked dimitri, don't get attached to patton, he is only on this ep. like i said, their new permenant vocalist is terrible. just curious: why do you hate dimitri so much? have you ever seen them live?
  10. I hate that typical "I'm going to scream as loud as a I can" hardcore voice. I can only take the lack of anything remotely close to a melody for so long. And yes, I know Mike's only singing on the ep, and no, I haven't seen them live.

    I'll definitely be lookign forward to the new E.P. and although I am the biggest Patton fan (just paid $45 for his new Hemophiliac CD with John Zorn and Ikue Mori...autographed !!!!) and I love DEP (even with their new singer), I sort of want the 2 to stay seperate. I haven't been able to rationalize that. :confused:

    I'll still buy it though since I tend to herd all that is Mike Patton/Trevor Dunn material.

    Dimitri ruled !
