Ben Weinman, guitarist from the mighty Dillinger Escape Plan guests this week on the podcast and we decided to make this the definitive interview about their impending split of the band. He and drummer Billy Rymer opted to discuss the decision in depth with us, what did it mean to them to make a choice to quit at the top of their game, where they would be going from here, who ultimately brought it up, whether there is a chance it might be a fluke or snap decision. We also dive a little deeper into Ben’s personal life and ruin him for any other podcasters out there, sorry guys.
We also play the new song from In Flames and we figured out where we heard the chorus before. You might be surprised, but when you hear it you will know that something is amiss, or at least it is pretty close to another song that was a hit in 2001, and not just an obscure track, it comes from an album that is listed as one of the top Nu Metal albums you must own. Coincidence?
