The Dillinger Escape Plan chose to have longtime producer Steve Evetts record the One Of Us Is The Killer, with additional production at guitarist/co-founder Ben Weinman’s studio. Mastering was done by Tom Baker. When asked about the album, vocalist Greg Puciato had the following to say about the recording process:
“Dillinger is a different beast in tracking than most normal bands. Even Steve has told me that there’s no other band that he has recorded that requires this amount of attention to detail. We take a longer amount of time to do one thing than most bands take to do ten. At this point, talking to Ben about it, we only do this once every three years on average so ten years from now I don’t want to look back and think, ‘Fuck man, we should have finished that one three weeks earlier!’ Who cares? You want it to be right and you want it to be the thing that was the closest to what your vision actually was.”
Puciato also stated on the direction:
“I can hear [the influence of old punk and hardcore records] a lot. I can definitely hear that in some of the riffs, which are really aggressive. It’s not a blatant hardcore record or anything like that. I actually think this is the most all over the place and weirdest record we’ve ever written. It’s the first one since I joined the band where Ben has sent me songs and I’ve been like, ‘What the fuck is happening? This sounds like a beehive!’”[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X01H4icz5aU[/youtube]
