Dillinger Escape Plan featuring Mike Patton
Irony Is a Dead Scene (EP) (2002)

Experimental Metal

This may piss off some people, but this is the only DEP album that I actually enjoy. I respect them for how much heart they put into their performances, but their current musical state just does not affect me at all. This EP that they did with Mike Patton, however, is a masterpiece. Right when I saw "featuring Mike Patton" on the cover I KNEW this would be a weird, yet enjoyable, album, and I was correct. It jumps from genre to genre. They have their normal chaotic sound, then they'll play some soft section, then back into chaos, then into some weird jazzy sounding spot. Sure they do that now, but the fact they are doing it with Patton on this gives it a special place in my heart. If you are a fan of of Mike Patton's work, but do not like DEP, you still need to give this a shot.
