No. 10: The Dillinger Escape Plan, ‘Calculating Infinity’ – Best Debut Metal Albums
It’s the album that changed everything without changing a damn thing. The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s debut album, ‘Calculating Infinity,’ still remains as the most spastic, mathematical, chaotic and contradicting metal album ever released.
The theoretical precision of ‘Calculating Infinity’ feels like it was thrown into a particle accelerator and launched to near light speed as the instrumental section of Dillinger enters technical territories which boggle the mind. The Dillinger Escape Plan are one of the few acts in extreme music who have never been ripped off, not because nobody tried, but simply because nobody else has been able to do it.
