disappointed, i followed reviews of fans when trying this band. i saw that they toured with Dream Theater and was expecting at least an iota of progressive elements! however, these guys are so aggressive that they should be in an asylum rather than a studio!
Metal Album Reviews[RSS]
By far one of the best bands around today. Their music is so incredibly written and so technical at the same time. For people that don’t like growling if you can learn to at least live with it you will be in utter tranquility listening to BTBAM.
The driving force behind Between The Buried And Me’s second masterpiece comes from Tommy Rogers bizarre and creative song lyrics, Paul Waggoner’s amazing guitar riffs and Mark Castillo’s superb drumming. Please do not label this band as a metal band, because they stray as far away from a typical metal band as ever thought possible. Tempo changes galore, most songs are just constantly shifting metalcore riffs and beats, it’s all insane, but it does slow down in the middle of the album to deliver an amazing acoustic-driven ballad, then launching again into full blown metalcore chaos. It is unlike anything you’ll ever hear because these guys are just such great musicians. This re-release includes a DVD with a full BTBAM concert in North Carolina, their hometown, plus most of their music videos. If you consider yourself a fan of hard music, then you should most definitely own this album.
