The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza fit right in with today’s emerging mathcore heroes, including Ion Dissonance, Ed Gein, The Red Chord, Premonitions Of War, Into The Moat, and Burnt By The Sun. The schizophrenic high-end guitars provide a blanket of psychotic aural assault amidst massive, dense tech breakdowns that will have you slipping, sliding, and dancing every which way. Much like Into The Moat, these guys barrel through one breakdown after the next, successively building on and expanding some of the tightest grooves tech metal has to offer. The bombarding grind-like speeds make a good part of their material sound like Ion Dissonance and Dillinger Escape Plan, while the massive guitar/bass/drum aesthetic using during stop-n-go breakdowns is very similar to Burnt By The Sun. Between the vocal and aesthetic similarities, these guys sound a lot like a more chaotic, frenzied Burnt By The Sun.
For a band that flirts with frequent grind drums and fret explosions, the musicianship is alarmingly tight with virtually no rough edges or faltering drum work.
Songs like “Cliff Burton Surprise” kick off a sappy, sarcastic indie/jam groove before the grind/death/hardcore/tech perversion begins.
“Bill Dance Lands The Big One” demonstrates the band’s incredibly fresh interplay of high-end stop-n-go melodic fretting contrasted with an equally timed foundation of chuggy grooves. The melodic high-end guides the song through several breakdowns and loosely mimics the punishing rhythm guitar patterns, resulting in a delirious mix of psychotic brutality and melody.
