As I Lay Dying vs. The Dillinger Escape Plan – Death Match
Right as Meshuggah were at the front door to a second entry into the Death Match Hall of Fame, the band was bested by American metalcore act As I Lay Dying. Now that As I Lay Dying have secured a win over the Swedish crushers, the metalcore band now begin their own march to the Death Match Hall of Fame, but not without some strong competition blocking their way.
The Dillinger Escape Plan have just unveiled the first track from their highly anticipated fifth studio album, ‘One of Us Is the Killer,’ due May 14. The song ‘Prancer’ is a quintessential new-school Dillinger track, mixing the band’s trademark spastic attack with up-beat experimentation. Although fans are forced to wait another two months for the new Dillinger album, faces are surely being punched to ‘Prancer’ as you read this … and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
