Endless Endings

Album: Option Paralysis (2010)
  • This was the initial track recorded for Option Paralysis, the fourth album recorded by American mathcore band The Dillinger Escape Plan. It was their first record to feature Billy Rymer on drums, after Gil Sharone left the band in January 2009 to focus on his brother's band Stolen Babies. Bassist Liam Wilson told The Associated Press: "This is the one that started it all - the first song we wrote for the album and consequently, the first song we wrote with Billy on drums. After witnessing his auditions, we had no doubts that he understood the sonic tongues we were speaking in and the vocabulary of drumming we've been writing with up to that point. Once this song was completed--and in record time--we had a standard to reference and the confidence to keep raising the bar with each consecutive composition."
