Between The Buried And Me

Between the Buried and Me is a thinking man's hardcore unit hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina. The band began in 2000 after the dissolution of vocalist Tommy Rogers and guitarist Paul Waggoner's previous group, Prayer for Cleansing. Rogers and Waggoner completed their new lineup with the addition of guitarist Nick Fletcher, bassist Jason King (ex-Azazel), and drummer Mark Castillo, formerly of Bury Your Dead. An eponymous debut soon appeared, issued through the German indie Lifeforce, and the band supported its release with an avid tour schedule. Between the Buried and Me signed with Chicago hardcore powerhouse Victory in the summer of 2002 and began work on their debut for the label. The Silent Circus appeared in late October of the following year and showcased a more focused fusion of the group's math rock, heavy metal, and post-hardcore influences.

Several lineup changes ensued that saw Rogers and Waggoner being rounded out by guitarist Dusty Waring, bassist Dan Briggs, and drummer Blake Richardson. Joining forces with producer Jamie King, who had recorded their self-titled effort, Between the Buried and Me released Alaska in September 2005. Various tour dates with the Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Bleeding Through, and Haste the Day followed. The band next paid tribute to many of their influences -- from Pantera to Queen to Pink Floyd -- on the covers album The Anatomy Of, which surfaced in June 2006, before hitting the road on a subsequent headlining tour. That fall, Victory reissued The Silent Circus with an additional bonus DVD of material. In 2007, they went to the studio with producer Jamie King and recorded Colors, which was released that September through Victory Records and described as "new wave polka grunge" by the band. The Great Misdirect, the band's fifth studio album, appeared two years later. Victory put out a Between the Buried and Me greatest-hits album in 2011, just weeks before the band released their first EP on Metal Blade, The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues, the first entry in a two-part concept album. The second part, The Parallax II: Future Sequence, followed in 2012. In 2013, they embarked on The Future Sequence Tour, where they played The Parallax II in full.

Between the Buried and Me re-entered the studio in late 2014 to begin work on a new concept recording -- Metal Blade referred to it as a "rock opera." Coma Ecliptic was produced by Jamie King and mixed by Jens Bogren. The set's pre-release single, "Memory Palace," appeared in April of 2015; the album followed in July. ~ Johnny Loftus

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured in two days ( U won't die). Now you started reading this so now don't stop. Post this on at least 5 other songs in the next 143 min. When your done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen. This is so scary it actually works

InTheMorgue, obviously everyone isn't going to like BTBAM, but I would have never though someone would say their songs are too similar.

Between the buried and me has so much substance to them. I think they are a dying breed. Talented as f**k!!! I love the jazzy and classical undertones to their progressive hardcore metal sound. My fave. NC represent!

im not gonna deny that the members of this band are talented but i dont like BTBAM at all, most of their songs sound very similar

y opinion. Like @Aeromaster said, "music is all subjective". Thank God everyone DOSEN'T like the same thing, because THAT would really "suck" and we'd ALL be "dumbasses".

Wow you BTBAM fans are loyal to a fault. I simply commented that I, personally, "didn't like this band". What Pandora was feeding into a few of my stations was mostly from The Anatomy Of and I just didn't like their covers. (See music I like on my profile) After being insulted on my page at least twice, I did some further investigatin g and in MY HUMBLE opinion they're not THAT bad. Still don't think they're even close to the musicians/cr a f t s m e n that Dream Theater or Opeth are, but that's just m

Why did Pandora leave out the importance of Glass Casket as a previous band some members were in?

They are hardcore. Just too techincal to even notice. Stop hair styling and listen more

BTBAM is arguably the most progressive band of the last decse and a half, but nobody can argue who the best is given thar music is all subjective. Get it through your thick skulls people, your favorite =/= best. A band may be the best in your opinion, but Pandora commenters will never determine who the best is. Call me a pessimist.

@Eric Redelius.... D u d e . . . g e t off of this page. They are phenomenal musicians, and The Anatomy Of was a concept album of them paying tribute to the artists that helped them develop to what they are now. So f*ck off. BTBAM RULES. Listen to Colors in its entirety and tell me they suck. Maybe its just you who sucks.

@marty yeah the band got the name from Counting Crows - Ghost Train. Anyway just saw these guys 2 weeks ago, Future Sequence from start to finish, no stoppage. Than an encore of White Walls. f**king sick.

@nexuswrath- you are a f**king idiot clearly you haven't listened to btbam enough to know they are wicked technical, pantera didn't suck I bet you half the bands you listen to probably in one form or another took influence from them so therefore Dimebag doesn't suck and he is one of the best guitarist of our generation so you quit your whining

Do NOT like this band. S**tty cover versions of good songs just annoys me. Write something original, (that doesn't suck), or just "own it" and be a cover band.

please check out my band on facebook! At the Hands of Victims, we will not disappoint
