Album Review

There have been many "fierce beasts" in the heavy metal community over the years, but after hearing the third release from Tennessee-based Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, titled Danza III: The Series of Unfortunate Events, many would agree that few match the ferocity of these young bucks. A nonstop sonic onslaught from the get-go, the Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza (wonder what the real Mr. Danza thinks of the group's goofy name?) are all about cranking everything up to max: in other words, screaming that would shred the average metal singer's vocal cords, frantic riffing that at times sounds akin to throwing a guitar down a flight of stairs, and metronome-perfect drumming — especially on such ragers as "Vicki Mayhem," "Passenger 57," "Suicide's Best Friend," etc. And it takes little time to recognize that the Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza absolutely adore utilizing stop-start-stop-start song structures — to the point that it could prove detrimental to those who experience motion sickness. While it's impressive how the Extravaganza never let up from beginning to end, it also proves to be their downfall after a while, as all the tracks start sounding exactly the same, and become increasingly predictable. But for lovers of true extreme metal, Danza III: The Series of Unfortunate Events should provide some much needed listening pleasure (or perhaps more fittingly...pain).

Like Being Run Down By A Steamroller

The title of this review is truly the best way to describe listening to this album. There are tons of bands out there with lower tuned guitars, faster drumming, more unintelligible and growly vocals, but TTDTDE do what many of those bands fail to do. Be entertaining. Every song will slam your head through a cement wall over and over again for the 2-4 minutes it lasts. And every smash will feel better than the last. This band has always been skilled at their craft but this album takes them over the top in terms of what I've come to expect of them. The band knocks you back and leaves you scratching at the air desperately trying to breathe as your lungs explode. The juvenile novelty has all but worn off (If you exclude the band's name, album and song titles) The music is straight to business and it's vice grip on your ears will not let go, so may as well sit back and get used to the pain because you know that you enjoy it and you want it to continue and never stop.

Absolutely Mental!

This is easily one of the best metal albums in my extensive metal collection! I can't believe I've managed to live this long without hearing these guys!

The music is intense all the way through the album, no rest for the wicked! The intensely angry vocals are a perfect match to the massive breakdowns and mental guitar noises! Wicked drumming as well, great off-timing with perfect punches to add the "kick in the face" style the band has perfected.

Long live this band, and may they create albums for many years to come!

Oh my god

I got half way thru this and had to stop because I couldn't believe it. It is by far the most amazingly insane incredible work of bizarre metal genius I've ever heard. It's been a long long time since I have heard something that made me smile and start laughing out of sheer joy from listening to something that amazed me by it's twisted brilliance. When's the last time that happened? I just stumbled on this while looking around iTunes and gave it a listen out of curiosity. Hit me like a sledgehammer and made me laugh in amazement. It's my lucky day. Incredible.

Eclectic and punishing extreme metal outfit Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza formed around the talents of Layne Meylain, Brad Thompson, Mike Butler, Mason Crooks, and Jessie Freeland in Murfreesboro, TN, a suburb of Nashville. The hard-hitting quintet, specializing in a tech-heavy blend of grindcore, groove-dominated thrash, and experimental metal, joined the Corrosive Recording label's roster in 2005 after the release of their independent debut. After touring relentlessly throughout the United States,...
