Connecting the Dots // The Dillinger Escape Plan

It’s been a while, but we’re back, so welcome to another edition of Connecting the Dots, and today we will be focusing on mathcore masterminds The Dillinger Escape Plan! Whilst they’re soon going to be shutting up shop (R.I.P), we can remain eternally grateful to the incredible records they’ve released during their two-decade career, their vicious live performances, and the incredible other musical projects they leave in their wake. Without further ado, let’s dive into the amazing projects these musicians have been a part of.

Heavy Rewind: Converge // Jane Doe

It's no secret that a good many of us on the Heavy Blog staff enjoy Converge. Since 1990, these guys have been making some of the best hardcore out there, consistently pushing their genre forward in ways nobody could have imagined. Last Sunday (September 4) marked the fifteenth anniversary of the band's seminal release Jane Doe; an album that is still regarded today as legendary and incredibly influential on the metalcore/hardcore scene, and I thought it apt to say a few words about this album.

Église – Église

Anyone that calls Église “Converge worship” is both missing the point and missing out. This is an excellent slab of metallic hardcore that should easily earn spot on the year end lists of every fan of the genre. Just one listen will convince listeners that Église has a bright future in the scene and remind them why they initially fell in love with Converge. But before they put on Jane Doe for the umpteenth time, they’ll make sure to enjoy every last brilliant note that Église has to offer.
