As its title implies, Calculating Infinity sees Dillinger Escape Plan attempt the impossible by merging existing strands of metal, grindcore and free jazz into a final form of progressive hardcore. Summing up this music as “mathcore”, music writers concluded that Calculating Infinity marked the start of a new movement when, of course, it was the omega plan of all notational chaos made vinyl, the unreckonable conclusion to more than a decade of hardcore and metal experimentation.
