New Jersey’s Dillinger Escape Plan formed in March 1997 as Ben Weinmen (guitars), Kevin Antreassian (guitars), Liam Wilson (bass), Billy Rymer (drums) and Dimitri Minakakis (vocals), who was later replaced by Greg Pucianto. In an attempt to push hardcore to the extreme, Dillinger produced complex riffs and beats, shifting time signatures, and an overall pulsating sound. They were one of the bands that developed the genre known as “math metal” (which as the name suggests, involves calculating time structures). What made this band stand out from others in the hardcore scene was that they incorporated unexpected genres with their death metal sound: electronica, industrial and even latin and jazz.
