We’re now two new tracks, a bunch of teasers and now a new video into the hype machine for the new Dillinger Escape Plan album One Of Us Is The Killer and it’s seriously blowing my mind every single time. The video for ‘When I Lost My Bet‘ mixes blood and gore with delicate snow and feathers, whilst creating one of the strangest and morbidly fascinating experiences I’ve had all year, but beyond that, the track itself absolutely slays.
When I first heard the teasers for the album, I was certain they were bringing back some of the ridiculous pedal-to-the-floor intensity of their debut Calculating Infinity and hearing ‘When I Lost My Bet‘ definitely confirms that. It’s less of a progressive winding run through like say ‘Farewell, Mona Lisa‘ or ‘Fix Your Face‘ and more of an all-out schizophrenic hate train that’s willing to mow down anything that gets in it’s path. If the rest of the album is half as good as this, then the band have basically outdone themselves. Yet again.
