The video for the Dillinger Escape Plan's "When I Lost My Bet" doubles as a nifty intro to the Morris Plains, N.J.-based outfit. The most disconcerting thing about Mitch Massie's gory fever dream of a clip, which promotes a track off the band's new record One of Us Is the Killer, is not its oil drum's worth of fake blood, flailing entrails, and assorted costumed weirdos. Instead, it's the erratic editing style, which makes the video a close stylistic match for the stop-start pace of the band's burly, agile math-metal. Images, instruments, and shrapnel from Greg Puciato's destined-to-be-ruptured vocal cords attack the senses with frantic speed. The video's only major mismatch is its glossy look, which works against the grit and frankness that are a large part of the Dillinger Escape Plan's appeal. Most of humanity only gets to daydream about slamming a battle axe through life's bullshit — these guys actually do it.
