Dillinger Escape Plan
"Some people probably think that the Dillinger Escape Plan is just harsh, complex, noise," comments guitarist Ben. "They don't like it, I guess because we listen to such technical music, or crazy stuff, that we have to go a bit off the wall and some people may not be into it, they may be nauseated, and that's just fine. The main importance over technicality, over anything really is just energy and emotion, as long as we keep the energy and emotion in our music I think anything else doesn't matter."
While there is no disputing the emotion and energy of Dillinger's music, at times it can be so sever and so extreme that it turns into white noise, inseparable from one emotional or musical context to the next.
"I think there is definitely something to say for the extremity in the Dillinger Escape Plan. We definitely push the limits and if you push the limits you are bound to get noticed, whether you're a crazy DJ or a new kind of comedian. As long as your pushing the limits, people will listen."
