Album Review

A group such as Between the Buried and Me is rare to find, as the jaw-dropping talent possessed by these five men seems almost too good to be true. While their eponymous debut is a muddled affair, the amazing skill of these musicians is quite obvious, careening from one extreme to another with little regard for human safety. The only real problem noticeable on this disc is the slight lack of direction, as every song is a seething concoction of math rock and pummeling heavy metal with little room for effective song structures. The members of Between the Buried and Me are also determined and vicious in their beliefs, as "Arsonist" is a horrific stab at a specific Kansas church that preaches against homosexuality. Very few groups have the courage to stand up and speak so freely, and for this Between the Buried and Me should be applauded. This is a chaotic album that rains with fiery determination, and even its weaknesses are thoroughly enjoyable, marking it as one of the fiercest albums in the hardcore community. ~ Jason D.

Best BTBAM ever!

This album is amazing. Every track is such art and such great musicianship. It's not as polished as there later albums. But it is by far the best.

Decent songs, horrible production

I can't stand the low quality on this album. I've been a fan of everything by BTBAM from their second album and everything after. But not this. The drummer is extremely sloppy and Tommy's vocals sound so unpleasantly jarring I can barely listen. They improve so much more on future releases. I love the raw intensity of it but it doesn't work well at all. I've loved raw and harsh releases by other technical bands such as jane doe by converge or kezia by protest the hero but not this. Awful production, underwhelming vibes and overall not memorable

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...
