Biography

Worcester MA, United States

Bury Your Dead (sometimes abbreviated to BYD) is a five-piece band that hails from Worcester, Massachusetts, United States.

Formed in 2001, Bury Your Dead began as a side project of the band Hamartia featuring Brendan “Slim” MacDonald (guitar) and Mark Castillo (Drums). With the metalcore sound of Hamartia growing tiresome to both Slim and Mark, they started writing less technical songs in their free time. They recruited Steve Kent to play bass, second guitarist Jesse Viens, and Joe Krewko as vocalist and began playing shows in Massachusetts and Connecticut under the name Bury Your Dead. News of their unbridled energy and destructive live show spread immediately around the East Coast hardcore scenes and the band was courted by Alveran/Eulogy Records.

The band recorded and released their debut album titled You Had Me At Hello in March 2002, borrowed a van, then toured in support of it. After several successful tours Bury Your Dead decided to go their separate ways - Mark (drums) moved back to Philadelphia and began touring with Between the Buried and Me, Rich (bass) went back to running his own screen-printing business, and Slim (guitar) began playing guitar in the band Blood Has Been Shed.

After several months had passed, Rich Casey contacted Slim and expressed his interest in reforming Bury Your Dead. They rounded up some of their old lineup, with a few others to fill in, and played some shows before heading down to Florida to play the annual Gainesville Fest.

    Holy crap, what happened to Mat? Did he eat Myke Terry or what?

    I wish these guys would just issue a statement on what their status is as a band. I know Matt is teaching, Slim is the touring guitarist in Bring Me The Horizon right now which is a big gig and they haven't really said if they planned on making him a permanent member or not, and we all should know Mark has been playing drums in Emmure for the past 2 years. These 3 guys make up the core of "Bury Your Dead", unfortunately Bubble has moved on to managing bands, he was always their best bassist. But, I really just wish they would make a statement about whether or not they will ever do another record & tour again or if this band is over and done with.

    I love how this band had two good album with Myke Terry and Bury Your Dead fans just completely assaulted them, when they are the only two albums with any songwriting craft. Damn you Victory Records for kicking Myke out, there was semblance of dynamics with him.

    Seems like these dudes will never be in one space to record another record in awhile. Slim is playing in Bring Me The Horizon right now, Mark still drumming in Emmure if they even choose to record with him again, Chris is still with DevilDriver.. Honestly don't even know the dudes playing second guitar and bass or who does the live drumming.

    These guys peaked with Matt on "Beauty And The Breakdown", with Mike they peaked on "It's Nothing Personal". It will be interesting to see where they go after Mosh'n'Roll. I love almost every BYD song tho. i usually mostly listen to "You Had Me At Hello".

    Bummer these guys lost Chris to DevilDriver. I wish Bubble would just comeback.

    Pretty sure they're all at their day jobs and recording/writing in their down time/summer? Just my best guess. Wish I saw more of them as well, the last record was awesome.

    Is this band even alive? They've had no activity and I haven't heard anything since I saw them in August 2011.

    Mosh'n'Roll is their best album so far - It's good for them to have Mat back!
