END have shared the video for “Hesitation Wounds“. The supergroup, which consists of members of Counterparts, Misery Signals, Dillinger Escape Plan, and more, just released their debut full-length album on Closed Casket Activities. Needless to say, we were pretty impressed.
Two decades ago, was anyone truly ready for what The Dillinger Escape Plan unleashed with their debut album Calculating Infinity? The answer is probably not. Truly a pioneering band while they existed (until their recent breakup), this is an album that is supremely influential for a reason. Tracks like “43% Burnt” and “Sugar Coated Sour” became immediate and long-lasting concert staples – impressively, despite the depth and excellence of their later discography. Jazz and ambient influences manage to seep into the mix, but make no mistake – this is one of metal’s most influential albums as a whole. Just ask guitarist Ben Weinman! Calculating Infinity is an album that was many years ahead of its time, yet interestingly, the band didn’t infiltrate the mainstream (relatively speaking) until its follow-up, Miss Machine. That doesn’t take away from this record’s importance, though.
