The Dillinger Escape Plan - Dissociation (Party Smashers Inc.) 2016
Every single time Dillinger delivers the goods we’re always ready to be happily punch in the face, and this time around they gave a new life and dimension to the whole sonic experience, because it’s even more assaulting and painfully arresting.
Dissociation is The Dillinger Escape Plan’s sixth full-length and it could also be their last. Could this be the end? We don’t fucking know… But we’re fully aware that a Dillinger album is never easily made, and the whole process is for sure creative and personal exhausting, these guys don’t operate like a normal band. Listening to a Dillinger Escape Plan album is always a new experience, like trying to solve a puzzle that never seems to end…
Dissociation is primal, crushing and rad, everything sounds frantic and perverse, it’s like a vicious ride full of euphoria that pushes the listener in the same intellectual and sonic direction. Greg Puciato is once again out of control and Ben Weinman is the maestro of this unfashionable yet brilliant masterpiece, showing a group of artists more focused than ever in their pursuit of musical innovation.
