Dillinger Escape Plan’s Label Party Smasher to Release Limited Edition Vinyl by No Machine

Yesterday while cruising Facebook, I noticed that Dillinger Escape Plan‘s label Party Smasher Inc. is releasing the debut album Good News by Billy Rymer’s other band No Machine.


https://www.facebook.com/dillingerescapeplan/posts/10153535525566349

Intrigued by that fat-bottomed, rockin’ promo, I tracked down the band’s prior EP to give it a little listen.

What I found was a sleazy, groovy mathcore EP with an emphasis on the riffs. Off-kilter, manic, staccato chords rise up like islands vomited from grinding tectonic plates amid the crashing waves of seething, tidal rhythms. Over the course of these four tracks, No Machine sound like a more rock-oriented DEP engaging in a particularly burly bout of fisticuffs in a seedy biker bar. If you like DEP, Every Time I Die, or The Chariot, I have a feeling you’ll enjoy this.

If you want to get your hands on the limited edition vinyl LP of Good News, it went on sale today right when this post went live. Go to the Party Smasher site to grab it. If you dig the EP, you can download it for free here. Be sure to give No Machine a like on Facebook as well.

      • Disgustache

        • Tyree

          Goddamn straight!

          • Dagon

            DOPE SOLOS!!

          • Tyree

            Surprisingly, YES!

            Man, I wish I could smoke some weed. It’s been probably a half a year.

          • Scrimm

            Me too. It’s been a couple hours.

          • KJM

            Tough, isn’t it? ^_^

          • Scrimm

            Hell yes, I hate running out.

          • KJM

            Gotta wait until tomorrow afternoon to re-up.

          • Scrimm

            I don’t get paid until thursday, but my connections are not reliable. I have to get it when I can. Too stressful.

          • KJM

            Fortunately, I have the opposite situation. I can walk down to one of my local pubs right now and get something. I also have very good credit.

          • Scrimm

            Lucky fucker.

          • KJM

            All built up over time, especially the credit part.

          • Scrimm

            We had great connections at our rehearsal studio, but they fell off eventually and we don’t have the place anymore anyways. A few people at my work have hinted they can get it easily but I’m not quite ready to go that route yet. Haven’t been there long enough to trust anyone like that.

          • more beer

            When I worked in Arizona for 6 months I was not impressed with the bud there. I got it from locals a couple of times. Both times I found the quality and quantity for the price were not worth it. After that I started having a grower friend mail it to me from out of state. That bud was excellent.

          • Scrimm

            There is a lot of questionable mexican dirt bud around here that’s for sure, or bricked shit as I like to call it but there is good stuff around if you can get a solid connection. most of the stuff we get now is dispensary level, I just gdon’t have a hookup where I can go get it whenever, the chance comes evrry couple weeks and I have to be ready to jump on it.

          • more beer

            I would be doing the same. When I was there. I couldn’t find anything good. Plus it was expensive for that crappy weed. I remember getting a quater oz of that brick weed for like 60 bucks. In New Mexico, I was getting a quater pound of that crap for 90 bucks. You guys are an mmj state. With any luck you will be legal recreational soon also.

          • Scrimm

            Fuck I hope so. Jesus 60 bucks! I get a quarter of that shit(when you can even find it anymore, amost everything out here is chronic) for 15-20 bucks

          • more beer

            Thats why I had my friend sending me shit from his crops. I was getting on oz of medical quality for $200. It’s about time the federal government listens to the will of the people. Legalization across the whole country.

          • Scrimm

            Damn right I can’t wait. So sick of it being a hassle. I just want to be able to have a bowl after a hard day and not have to worry about where I’m going to get it next.

          • more beer

            It’s certainly one of the things I love about living in Colorado. Hopefully it’s not too long now.

          • KJM

            If I went 6 months without smoking, people would be getting hauled off in body bags.

          • Tyree

            Hahahaha! Sounds like my guitarist.

        • KJM

          100% concentrated awesome.

      • That Nocternity is a very good record. I’m impressed how they managed to retain that black imaginery with the subject. It’s awesome, the production value is great and the instrumentation is top-notch.

        • Tyree

          I find it crazy that Vagelis Voyiantzis of Dead Congregation did drums on it. Complete 180 for him.

          • the-more-you-know.jpeg

            There are some other black merol albums I’m digging so far. It’s my first year listening moar black merol, because it’s now very diverse, with those mixes of folk and doom and death:

            Haethen, Nocternity, Endlesshade, Abyssal, Obsequiae, Nokturnal Mortum, Forgotten Winter…

          • Scrimm

            I want some new Inveracity!

          • Seconded.

    • Shrimp in a Pizza Box™

      Not in a particular order:
      Lord Dying – Poisoned Altars
      Entheos – Primal EP
      Xibalba – Tierra y Libertad
      Dawn of Azazel – The Tides of Damocles
      Ranger – Where Evil Dwells
      Tempel – The Moon Lit Our Path

      Haven’t listened to much music at ALL, I need to get on to that Visigoth and King Parrot.

      EDIT: HOLY SHIT HOW DID I FORGET ABOUT SATYRASIS, that’s a really good one.

      • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

        Entheos is like the second coming of Animosity minus Leo’s vocals.

        • Lacertilian

          Animosity were pretty close to my fave band when they were kicking, Entheos felt more chuggy than say Animal did.
          Sure I miss Leo’s vox too but Frank’s riffing kinda sounds less shreddy than it used to.

          • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

            More mechanical sounding and more angular. Goes well with their added digital elements.

          • Lacertilian

            Agreed, although I’m not sure now if they’ll ever live up to my expectations following Animal. The snippets of odd acoustic flourishes on that album really sold me, I enjoyed how organic it sounded for a fairly technical death-shred storm of an album.
            Entheos seem to have gone the other direction into electronic influence, possibly due to Navene’s electro-drum solo stuff and/or Evan’s solo stuff. Which is fine but I would have liked to see them explore in the other direction. – Greedy Fan (2015)

      • Tyree

        Not my shit, but thanks for sharing shrimp.

      • OldMetalHead

        Saw Lord Dying on Saturday. I think I’m going to pick that one up.

      • Satyrasis>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    • Dagon

      I was jamming that Black Cilice for a while after you posted it. Very lo-fi. I liked it, but not enough for top 10.

    • Tyree

      Non metal shit.

      1. Björk – Vulnicura

      2.Sara Mitra – Losing You

      3. Grace Pitts – For You

      4. Jess Williamson – Native Stateby

      5. Marriages – Salomeby

      6. Johanna Warren – nūmūn

      7. Kathryn Joseph – Bones you have thrown me and blood i’ve spilled

      • Shrimp in a Pizza Box™

        So, basically, all the north european grills?

        • Tyree

          What?

          It’s pretty spread out.

      • KJM

        I guess the John Carpenter and Phase IV soundtrack would qualify as non Metal. I gotta find some good 2015 Hip Hop though.

        • Tyree

          Damn, Fuck me. I still need to listen to that.

          • KJM

            If you like Carpenter’s movie soundtracks, you’ll love it.

    • Scrimm

      Desolate Shrine and Hacavitz are topping my list so far.

    • Ignatius the Wizened

      “Best of” lists, this is not,
      Stay on task, you wandering lot!
      This article asks not for music ov goat
      So prepare ye ass for thee DOWNVOTE!

      • Tyree

        Fuck Off!

        It’s a fucking metal blog. I’ll comment what I want metal wise. I have respect for a lot of people here including W. If he has a problem with me posting shit, then he can bring it up with me.

        FUCK YOU!!!

        • -HD

          • Tyree

            What’s that supposed to mean?

          • It just sounded like something HD has said before… Before he went AWOL.

            GL

          • Tyree

            Well, I meant every word I said. If one of you have problem with me, don’t be a goddamn pussy and hide behind some fake account. Fucking talk to me.

          • I can see IP addresses. Promise GL is not the rhyme wizard.

          • Tyree

            I didn’t think he was.

          • i wouldn’t exactly say he went AWOL…

          • Tyree

            Agreed.

          • b&
            If I remember correctly.

        • Ignatius the Wizened

          No need to fear, Tyree ov Lore,
          I needn’t add a downvote more.
          Ouroboros coils, a serpent’s hiss,
          On your side am I on this.
          At work with metal, I forge it black,
          A modern Hephaestus, no skills I lack.
          I spend my day forcing posers from hall,
          Katie has sex with Tyree and Lysol.

          • Tyree

          Love it I do.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Did you check Teho Majamäki & co’s Under The Ground?

        • Sir Tapir the Based™

          I haven’t but I shall! Speaking of Majamäki, I am waiting for the HC Andersen reissue and I’m excited to see ’em live.

      • Tyree

        YEEEEESSSS!

      • Condom Full Of Croutons

        The new Forest Of Stars is good, but not nearly as good as their last one. Kinda feels like they lost some of that weirdness that made the last one so good.

    • my only potential Tyree-approved picks would include Antigama, Abyssal, Maruta, and Amestigon

    • KJM

      Acid King – Middle Of Nowhere, Center Of Everywhere
      Monolord – Vaenir
      Ufomammut – Ecate
      John Carpenter – Lost Themes
      Phase IV – ‘Phase IV’ Soundtrack
      Weedeater – Goliathan
      Dopethrone – Hochelaga

      More to come, I’m sure.

      • Tyree

        Good doom/sludge mix. I really did not like that Weedeater album though. What are you thoughts?

        • KJM

          It’s decent enough, not a patch on their earlier work though. Dopethrone destroys it on all levels of course.

          • Tyree

            That Dopethrone blows everything out of the park. Monolord is sick doe. Have not heard Acid King yet.

          • Zeke

            Just got acid king over the weekend; digging it a lot. It’s maybe more trancelike than their older stuff. Almost like hvis lyset tar oss, even though it actually sounds nothing like burzum

          • Condom Full Of Croutons

            And that bottom end is thicker than a diamond anvil.

  • Sweet find, W. Thanks!

    GL

    • The W.

      Thanks, GL

  • Dagon

    This EP totes my goats. Mentions to Every Time I Die make me feel inspired to pursue my swole dreams, because this guy:

    • Dagon

      photo evidence

      • Tyree

        I fucking wish SMOHLG played guitar in my band.

      • Does security/plays guitar

      • Condom Full Of Croutons

        Where’s his kaiser helmet?

  • Tyree

    Any Vest dwellers out there? Here is my current work of sloppy shit.

  • Tyree
  • The W.

    Well, based on these comments, I guess this was a bust.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Only checked now, the previous EP is… well I guess I like it.

    • Tyree

      It happens.

      Sorry if my comments are overriding the topic of yours. But, I figured more people would be surrounding my bullshit with comments based on your post.

      • The W.

        My comment was more of a resignation to my fate. I’ve written a poop-load of articles. Not all of them are going to be grand slams.

        • Tyree

          I may not be able to relate, because I take no pride in my writing (IT’S SHIT!), but you should not take it badly dude. Seriously.

    • i ordered one!

    • KJM

      I promise that I did check it out.

      • The W.

        Haha, it’s aight!

    • I didn’t get check this until now but it most definitely is something I would enjoy. Billy’s got skills behind the kit and I caught the sample, sounded good. Too bad this post got Boo Cock Eed.

  • I think I can dig this. The drumming is very jazzy and it accentuates very good. Thanks, Dubidubz! (and thanks to the band for making this free and think in cheap Venezuelans like me).

    • Awww, what the hell…

      The Second song is good.

      #Doomloading

  • EsusMoose

    It was interesting, as expected Billy’s style of drumming makes it seem kind of like it’s another dep song.

    • The W.

      I figured Ann Kvlter would be all up on this.

      • EsusMoose

        Probably will show up in a bit, I feel like they’ve been showing up a little later to posts recently

  • Oh man, this sounds killer. Hope it makes it to Bandcamp.

  • Booyakasha @disqus_kqxyUNPxty:disqus ! You just made something awesome happen.

    • The W.

      Thanks, bandcamp!

  • Guppusmaximus

    I guess my list is kind of short – not too many releases that tickle my pickle:
    (Metal & Non-Metal combined)

    The Aristocrats – Tres Caballeros
    Alkaloid – The Malkuth Grimoire
    Black Peaks (very interested)
    Iron Maiden – Book of Souls (hoping roots revisited like the revised moniker infers)
    Faith No More – Sol Invictus (long time, biased fan)
    3 – Crazy Eyes (single)
