The Outer Limits: How prog are Dillinger Escape Plan?
Deep thinking, dangerous live shows and an unpredictable sound with a punk core – that sadly is now coming to an end. So we had to ask: how prog are The Dillinger Escape Plan?
I t’s the late 90s, and an intelligent, dark-haired young man walks into his corporate job in the United States. He’s smartly dressed in a suit and tie, but as he limps to his desk, past the water cooler, his colleagues notice that he has two black eyes, and his ankle is strapped up after taking a nasty strain the night before. It happens most Mondays, the result of an aggressive underground movement that pushes itself to the mental and physical limit every weekend in search of true freedom and meaning outside the daily grind. And it’s not Fight Club… it’s real.
