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).

Wow...Did not see this coming

I have always purchased TTDTE albums and they were always a fun little distraction for a week before I moved on to other cds. I guess you can say I have always been impressed by the musicianship and intensity but found the song writing ability severly lacking. Well in Danza III everything has changed. All the songs are.....gasp...actual songs! They are cohesive and atmospheric. There is a sense of groove to every song which is not like the TTDTE of old. They thing is they are still chaotic and intense but added the ability to tie it all together. Which IMO is a devastesting combination. The band has also starting to use melody with great results. W.A.L.L.S and 12-21-12 both have post-metal sections that make them sound huge and epic. Don't be mistaken that there are 8 minute post-metal jams on here but I would consider it TTDTE take on the genre and I think it works wonders. I can't believe it but Danza III is in the running for one of the best metal albums this year. Pick it up!

I have nothing to say...

The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza are back and better than ever, with their gratest work to date. TDTE have experimented with using a post metal atmosphere, and the results are jawdropping. Songs like There's a Time and Place For Everything, W.A.L.L.S., and 12.21.12 have amazing melodies that just change the mood of the song completely. Some times it can be beautiful, others it can be dark and evil. The classic tech riffs of Danza are still present, especially in the songs Yippie Kay Yay, Sammy Jankis, Passenger 57, and others. The groove is sill on every song too. Some of the heaviest songs are The Lost & Damned, Hour of the Time, and of course The Union, possibly earning the (unofficial) "breakdown of the year" title. Some songs that portray all aspects of the band the best would be Vicki Mayhem, an insane opener with the craziest riffs on the album concluding with a great atmosphere, Suicide's Best Friend, a little more chaotic than Vicki Mayhem but ending in the same way, and A Trail Of Tears, with very creative riffs and another moment of ambience towards the middle. The whole album is worth the money, especially for the closer (its not 25 minutes, just one 4 minute song and then a nine minute second part). Songs I would recommend are Vicki Mayhem, Yippie Kay Yay, Theres a Time And Place For Everything, and The Union. As the closing lines of Suicides Best Friend go, I have nothing left to say...just BUY IT

The 5 stars is not as much for the album itself..

..but more because of how much better it is than the other two albums. Danza II was a pretty sick Mathcore/Deathcore album, but the sound of this album, both sound wise and production wise is much cleaner and tighter. They sound like they've definitely matured as a band. Hopefully this one will make them known beyond their funky name!

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,...
