There aren't many bands that maintain a consistency while constantly progressing from album to album. It seems like everyone wants to renew and reinvent their sound so as not to bore their audiences. Dillinger Escape Plan is a band that has never, ever had this problem. Since their spastic beginnings releasing two smashing EPs until working up to their masterful full length debut Calculating Infinity, a title perfectly summarizing the band's ability to craft extremely intricate, jazzy songs, ripe with blasting meter changes.
Miss Machine followed in 2004 showing the band with a more refined sound, switch ups and changes in writing keeping somewhat consistent with Calculating Infinity but progressing the sound immensely.
