The Morning After: The Dillinger Escape Plan
WHO: The Dillinger Escape Plan
WHERE: London Relentless Garage
HOW’S THE HEAD/NECK/VOICE? Spritely, warmed up, raspy.
Tonight’s sold out crowd are a diverse bunch. Amongst the sea of trendy garbs, plaid shirts and glasses lurks your typical metalhead. Because let’s face it, tonight’s good looking headliners are a trendy bunch packing some seriously scathing riff work that’s attractive to all.
If it’s one thing DEP are good at, it’s causing some carnage. If frontman Greg Puciato isn’t swinging precariously on the PA stack or guitarist Ben Weinman isn’t jumping knee first into some poor git’s face, they’re inciting a stage invasion so they can crowd surf on the bloody stage itself. However, with a setlist comprised of the regularly aired ‘Milk Lizard’ and ’43% Burnt’ and also a re-earthed ‘Setting Fire To Sleeping Giants’ the New Jersey five-piece absolutely nail every riff with furious conviction.
It was all just too much fun to waste time lingering at the bar. So the accidental lack of booze made for a decent night’s sleep and spritely morning. Win!
