ALBUM: Calculating Infinity (DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN)
Who says that hardcore punks can’t shred? The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman pioneered a style known as mathcore, which isn’t as nerdy as the name suggests but certainly requires an IQ above 100 to be fully appreciated for its unique blend of punk intensity, technical precision and the anomalous jazz melodicism. Still think punks can’t shred with the best of them? We dare you to try and figure out one of Weinman’s solos. Go ahead, tough guy.
