There's a gulf between even At The Drive-In and how extreme Dillinger can be, but on 'One Of Us Is The Killer', they've finally written a record that bridges that gap while staying true to themselves. Absolutely essential, and maybe their best album yet.

The 405

It's a bruising album that takes no prisoners, but perseverance is key, because it hinges on a moment in which everything falls into place.

The Needle Drop
The Dillinger Escape plan comes through again with another solid set of pummeling, difficult riffs and catchy choruses on this new full-length album.

This is another album swap with my good friend @DREscapePlan, who will eventually review QOTSA’s “Songs For The Deaf.”

The Dillinger Escape Plan was a huge part in the soundtrack to my quarantine, and then I somehow stopped afterwards. This album was better than I remember it being, which was already great to begin with. I’m glad @DREscapePlan is helping me get into this band again, because this is some good shit.
