The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza

Danza II: The Electric Boogaloo

This Louisiana/Tennessee metal conglomerate has a fairly funny yet juvenile name that is likely a huge hit with the faux-hardcore kids. But rather than live off of namesake alone, The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza can actually write a good song or two.

Danza II: The Electric Boogaloo is the band’s second full-length and third overall release. Since releasing their self-titled affair in 2005, the band has moved up to Metal Blade subsidiary, Black Market Activities. The band’s mixtures of technical metal, grindcore, hardcore, and southern rock are very fitting to their label home. There is no denying that The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza is heavy. You also can’t deny their abilities - guitarists Layne Meylain and Brad Thomson use every inch of their guitars’ fretboard and drummer Mason Crooks is well honed in his drumming duties. Where the band fails is that their music is fairly predictable and generic. Most every song on this album reminds me of Burnt by the Sun - oftentimes I forgot that I wasn’t listening to them. Despite my evaluation as generic paint-by-numbers technical metalcore, Danza II will likely bring the band a fair amount of success in the metal world.
