Neck First - I Can Feel My Skin Crawl

Let's just say if The Dillinger Escape Plan ditched all that polished nu metal stuff they're doing now they would probably sound as good as Neck First.  If you're yearning for the days of raw, stripped down music that still maintains a technical and fierce sound then this band might be for you.

I'm gonna take a few points off here for the production quality.  As much as I like a raw sound, there are times when I feel the unbalanced EQ between bass and guitar takes away a bit of the overall "in your face" sound that would lend itself well to this style.

Listen to it here.
