Calculating Infinity is the debut studio album by American mathcore band The Dillinger Escape Plan, released in September 1999 by Relapse Records. Calculating Infinity showcases the band's heavier and more technical sound and would go on to be considered a landmark of avant-garde metal. The release is The Dillinger Escape Plan's only full-length album to feature original singer, Dimitri Minakakis as the lead vocalist.
