The Dillinger Escape Plan - Option Paralysis (Bonus Tracks)

The Dillinger Escape Plan is a band from Morris Plains, New Jersey. The band performs a fast-tempo, technically proficient style of music popularly known as mathcore. The band recorded their second EP with Relapse Records in 1998 entitled Under the Running Board. A year later, this was followed with the album Calculating Infinity, which was met with great acclaim from both underground and mainstream press. The band were renowned in the hardcore scene for the intensity of their performances, which have at times incorporated spectacular light shows, fireworks, fire breathing, and other special effects.

While the band’s lineup has changed over the years, in part due to a variety of injuries, guitarist Ben Weinman and former drummer Chris Pennie have been present in many of the lineups. After the departure of vocalist Dimitri Minakakis in 2000, the band held a nationwide search and selected Greg Puciato as the new singer. The band has since released three full length albums with Puciato on vocals: 2004’s Miss Machine, 2007’s Ire Works and 2010’s Option Paralysis.
