If the spazzy math-metal rhythm of “Prancer” didn’t give you a heads up that The Dillinger Escape Plan’s forthcoming album One of Us is the Killer is a fast, heavy album, then you’re about to get 10 more chances to decide. Sumerian Records has launched a trailer that’s an effective teaser of the album. The 6 1/2 minute clip features snippets of every song on the album, and after having lived with the album for the past week or so, it’s definitely an effective sampler. The more accessible songs, like the title track, are few and far between, and the majority of the album is pummeling. In fact, this might be the heaviest album the band has done in a while.
One of us is the Killer will be released on April 16 on Sumerian Records. Check out the track listing after the jump.
