Album Review

Like Throwdown, Killswitch Engage and fellow Connecticut troupe Hatebreed, Bury Your Dead goes straight for the jugular on Cover Your Tracks, a bloodcurdling exercise in death metal. Gore meets 'core front and center as guitars collide with a relentless bass drum thump on the band's Victory Records debut, as lead throat Mat Bruso gargles his way through bruising, maniacal funeral marches like "Eyes Wide Shut" and "Mission: Impossible." All of the song titles are nicked from Tom Cruise movies — "Top Gun," "Losin' It" and "The Color of Money" are a few more — but the emotional quotient is almost always grim, baring little resemblance to the aforementioned films. Most often, BYD takes aim at nay-sayers and greedy, promiscuous women with hate and vengeance on its collective mind. Cathartic as it may be, Cover Your Tracks is a joyless experience, but if this kind of threatening, disturbing musical presentation is your bag, BYD do it about as well as any of the aforementioned. ~ John D.

Solid Album

Solid album but a far cry from "a bloodcurdling exercise in death metal." This reviewer has his genre's mixed up, der. This is a HARDCORE album. Some of the guitar riffs are kind of metal? Not really. Great hardcore album if you are into beatdown. Highly Reccomended.

Second best to beauty and the breakdown

Awesome opening major recording. I think it kewl how they titled songs for movies that Tom cruise acted in

It's okay but...

Don't get me wrong i LOVE hardcore, and this is actually pretty good. I just wish they didn't use breakdowns as much.
I think I'll just stick to sick of it all & hatebreed.

Growing tired of their metalcore band, Hamartia, guitarist Slim (aka Brendan MacDonald) and drummer Mark Castillo began Bury Your Dead as a side project in late 2001. Drawing influence from Sevendust and Crowbar, the band was used as a vehicle for the pair to focus more on mosh-worthy hardcore rather than the technical nature of Hamartia. Recruiting bassist Rich Casey (ex-Groundzero) and vocalist Joe Krewko, the Massachusetts-based outfit -- priding itself on blending ferocity with fun -- soon became...
