This could be the last chance to see the peerless mathcore pioneers Dillinger Escape Plan, as the group plan to disband in 2017 after nearly two decades of progressive, disruptive, head-explodingly extreme music. Sucking in hardcore, punk, metal, jazz and bent circuitboards like a vast collapsing sun, DEP have defied categorisation from birth. This year’s Dissociation LP caps an untarnished legacy of chaotic dissonance that few acts can come close to; the decision to collapse the band while still in full flight makes it all the more untouchable. Make no mistake, the terrifying spectacle of the band’s live power, shaking teeth loose and breaking bones, will become a badge of “I was there” honour in years to come – so don’t miss their final Viking pillaging of these shores.
Sun 22 Jan 7pm at O2 Institute, 78 High Street, Digbeth, Birmingham B5 6Dy, £17.25 seetickets.com
