Between the Buried and Me are a thinking man's rock & roll outfit hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina. Moving from death growls to mellow singing, and death metal to blues to prog, technical death and math metal are qualities not usually found in the poster-boy megaband. For BTBAM, it's not how the music is written that matters, it's in the execution, both in the studio and on the stage. Beginning with 2003's The Silent Circus, where they ground through extreme music's subgenres, to 2007's Colors, which the band called "a 65-minute opus of non-stop pummeling beautiful music...." they professed distaste for staying inside the lines, stifling almost no creative impulse to get the material across even if it meant forsaking one genre for another. While metal was always the outfit's referential touchstone, they emerged from the hardcore and indie rock scenes to get there. When recordings became more conceptual with 2015's relatively accessible Coma Ecliptic, BTBAM had widened their musical circle so much that critics lauded them under the "progressive metal" tag, since it was easier to categorize. Live, they are a contradiction in terms, displaying an intense energy and playing music almost theatrical in its immediacy.
