Review Summary: Jazz, bluegrass, and metal all wrapped up in one. How could you go wrong?

2 of 2 thought this review was well written

Disfiguring the Goddess, possibly the best jazz crossover band there is, beautiful sweeps, tasty solos, odd time breakdowns, and clean vocals close in similarity to Opeth. These guys are the perfect blend of heavy and beauty. This mostrous EP starts off with the most proggy breakdown/intro ever, Flower of Flesh and Blood, a first you might notice is the 100% flawless audio quality every instrument is heard clearly but it's not overproduced like all black metal bands. This song ends with some awe-inspiring guitar solos and diminished sweeping.

Next on this onslaught of proggy jazz is "Ramihrdus", it starts off with some very uplifting spoken word about how dogs and people are to live in eternity with each other because of their undying love for each other's company, it the goes into a very ominous tremolo riff that reminds you about the beating that ensues. You get thrown around like a rag doll attached to a rally car, after minutes of incredible tremolo riffage and blast beats you get to experience music's greatest creation; the breakdown, this one doesn't last very long, but it's so well executed it leaves you begging for more, and that is exactly what DTG wants!

The last song is called Untitled. It is named this because DTG loves to keep you on the edge of your seat, just like Bring Me The Horizon, this song is impressive and very progressive, and even though it's a daunting 2:10 seconds long, it keeps you THOROUGHLY interested. Big Chocolate keeps you in awe as he belts out Opera-esque notes that take you away. Many people don't know he was actually trained in classical music and was in an opera for the better part of 20 years, alongside bluegrass giants Chris Barnes, Corpsegrinder, and Justin Bieber. The song ends with diminished sweeping and leaves you mouth-on-the-floor with how incredible the musicianship of this record is, I definitely look forward to picking up more of this band's stuff.

Keep it jazzy.
