The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato gets his ’80s on with The Black Queen’s “Ice to Never”

Posted by on September 24, 2015


We’ve written about The Black Queen before. Basically, The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato is a fan of a lot more music than just the spazzy mathcore of TDEP, and he doesn’t really get to explore the ’80s side of him nearly as much as he’d like to. The Black Queen, which also consists of Joshua Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv and Steven Alexander, is his chance for him to do that. Interestingly enough, “Ice To Never,” was the band’s first video, but it was actually a “12” extended dance mix” of the song. Now the proper song is here, and it’s pretty great. It’s kind of got a late ’80s/early ’90s vibe about it, not unlike The Whispers’ “Rock Steady” as interpreted by Nine Inch Nails, if that makes any sense (it doesn’t!).  The band’s album, Fever Daydream, is a bit more downtempo than this, but if you love the ’80s and Greg’s voice, you’ll definitely like this.
