The Display Team RIO/Avant-Prog

Review by ImpressiveLad1597

5 stars Really really brilliant stuff.

This is a band that manages to combine the humour and vibe of Frank Zappa with the avant garde musical escapades of seminal avant rock act Cardiacs. What The Display Team provides here is a sonically satisfying contrast between brass instrumentation and prog-metal riffs as well excellent vocal performances by more or less the entire band. I do believe that this band are exceptionally skilled song-writers, able to bring together various musical sections and transition between them with ease. Flashy solos one minute, heartfelt vocals and soft strumming the next. This is most exemplified by the track Epitaph which is, absolute gold. But rest assured every song is very well written and a very satisfying listen. The Indecision Prism and I Am House are the only two songs I don't fully enjoy, but even then I still think they have moments that make them worth listening to.

So in summary, heavy riffs, harmonic vocals, erratic yet well structured songs, BRASS, what more could you ask for?

Thanks to nogbad_the_bad for the artist addition.
