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.

    Alright, I guess than that's that. I'm not a native English speaker (and neither my friend). Thanks for your insights!

    not one or a group, but any previously living thing that is now buried. that's how I've thought about it [2] Always thought this.

    Pretty much convinced that this is the only band I can think of that has a truly flawless discography. Not a single bad album.

    When you think about what their band name refers to, do you think of "the buried" as in one person that has been buried or a group of people? Me and a friend just found out that we had always opposite intuitions regarding the phrase's proposition.

    I'm going to be the first to say: Swim to the Moon. This song is so intense, that it keeps me on the edge of my seat for the whole 18 minutes. Silent Flight Parliament comes second, I think.

    Silent Flight Parliament, of course it was White Walls for awhile.

    really does seem like just a load of balls, but I'm willing to be proven wrong here

    Sides, MA is a pretty elitist site to begin with. "Oh we don't have any deathcore bands cause that ain't metal". *adds several deathcore bands*
