Dillinger Escape Plan Albums Ranked

Dillinger Escape Plan Albums

Our Dillinger Escape Plan Albums Ranked list looks at a great rock and roll band form the New York New Jersey Metropolitan Area, Big time music acts Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi weren’t the only great rock and roll bands to come out of the Northern New Jersey area. The Dillinger Escape Plan band arrived on the music scene at the end of the 2oth century and gave hard rock fans a very cool almost twenty year run. At times sounding like Judas Priest meets Chick Corea’s Elektric Band, the group was defined by brilliant musicianship that knew no boundaries within the genre of metal and all its sub genres. They are easily one of the most interesting and entertaining bands of the 21st Century. They were a product of their times but also were students of the past as you can hear so many different influences in their music.

The Dillinger Escape Plan released their first album in 1999 entitled Calculating Infinity with Dimitri Minakakis as their lead vocalist. It would be the only album the band released with Dimitri Minakakis as their front man. It would also be another five years before the band released their second album entitled Miss Machine. That album released in 2004 was the first album to feature Greg Puciato  as their lead singer. Three years later the Dillinger Escape Plan released their third album entitled Ire Works. 

At this point in time the group would get into a release schedule of issuing new albums every three years. In 2010 , the band released the record Option Paralysis. Three years after the release of Option Paralysis, the band released their fifth album entitled One of Us Is the Killer. In 2016, the group issued their final album called Dissociation. 

Our Dillinger Escape Plan Albums list takes a closer look at the band’s six albums and puts them in ranked order as to which one were our favorites.
