Biography

Raleigh NC, United States (2000 – present)

Between the Buried and Me is a band from Raleigh, North Carolina, comprised of former members of acts Prayer For Cleansing and Glass Casket. They have released six albums in addition to a covers album and an EP. Their style is diverse, with influences ranging from , , , and , to or artists such as Dream Theater, Mike Patton, King Crimson, Queen, and The Mars Volta.

The ideas introduced in The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues are expanded in The Parallax II: Future Sequence, their first full length on Metal Blade Records since switching from Victory Records. “This whole process was a lot of work, and it’s definitely the most rewarding piece of music we’ve ever written,” says vocalist/keyboardist and co-founder Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr. (Thomas Giles; ex-Prayer For Cleansing, Undying, From Here On). Other members include lead guitarist and co-founder Paul Waggoner (ex-Prayer For Cleansing, Undying); Glass Casket guitarist Dustie Waring and drummer Blake Richardson; and bassist Dan Briggs (Trioscapes, ORBS). Combined with the EP, Parallax II creates a sprawling one hundred minute suite that explores the concepts of death and rebirth, astral projection, and the redemption of humanity; and further evolves the sharply intricate and brutally heavy sound which has been developing since the project formed in 2000.

    I think it's not that controversial, as probably most people consider both really great and while I concur it's only some smaller aspects that make prefer the live version. What I find far more problematic, is that White Walls vanished from the top tracks! What's going on here!

    One of the best things about BTBAM is that despite their technicality they don't take themselves completely seriously. It's just fun.

    It's a good song, but unfortunately that whole EP is sub-par to the rest of their albums so I find myself neglecting it. I like Specular Reflection and Lunar Wilderness but I really don't like Augment Of Rebirth.

    They did say they were making a rock opera, so that could be a possibility.

    I wouldn't be too surprised if they stayed in the ballpark of the style of the last album since it was pretty successful, but who knows.

    We better get some awesome visuals with the album. Or something rather creative. As much as I love Colors Live, I was disappointed at not having some visuals to play along side the music.

    I only hope they carry on with their experimental style, regardless of what shape its gonna take. Even it's Heritage-like, I'm okay with that. Just make it fucking awesome
