DT's music is big caleidoscope having many aspects of severel genres such as black metal, melodic death metal, atmospheric rock/metal and progressive metal. Their music, mostly their first cds Skydancer, Gallery, Mind's I, is very much of progressive aspects, highly acclaimed guitar work (as happens in case of Göteborg bands) and rhythmic section, Anders Jivarp is definitely one of the most superb extreme metal drummers. Although, their newer albums can be found differing in style but making always something newer or different on the way of refinement, the band might be bodkinned in tech/extreme prog category.

The Gallery is one of their best albums and probably includes some prog elements, but their overall discography speaks the opposite I am afraid, so I will tend to agree with Lucas
