One of the worlds most progressive acts Between The Buried And Me will return to Australia next February! Grandiose, dynamic, heavy, melodic, technically challenging: these are all words that fall equally short when trying to describe BTBAM’s sonic offerings.
Following up their utterly captivating The Parallax II album was almost an impossible task but with album number seven, Coma Ecliptic (2015, Metal Blade) they have managed to take a significant evolutionary step forward that pushed every member to their creative limits.
The result is a modern rock opera. An ambitious concept album that follows a man in a coma with each song representing his next move in search for a way out and onto something better, but is it better than his own waking reality? Through these immense songs, the bands message is clear, appreciate the things you have, Incredibly theatrical with ample amounts of speed, prog, quirkiness and out and out riffage, watching not long for the things you want and miss whats truly important.
Between The Buried And Me perform live is an experience like few can offer. Joining BTBAM are San Diego natives Chon who’s instrumental sonics incorporates prog rock and jazz with lightning fast picking, staccato drumming and creative melodies that forge to bring something fresh and uniquely their own to the table. Forming in 2008 they quickly caused waves in their local scene before being offered to play with bands like Animals As Leaders and Circa Survive. This will be Chon’s first trip to Australia and you can guarantee it won’t be their last! The Sumerian Records signees will leave fans instantly impressed.
