Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
It’s not a secret that I’m a fan of prog-metal and I love Between the Buried and Me. Ever since Alaska I’ve loved the band. Anytime there’s new music from BTBAM, it’s a good thing.
Their new ep, The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues, is an epic 3 song, 30 minute musical exploration. Specular Reflection starts off with a frantic piano running to and fro before BTBAM hits you with an assault of metal that the band is known for. It’s hard to capture in words 3 songs, each with an average length of 10 minutes, and I won’t try.
I will say Between the Buried and Me, as always, have delievered an incredible metal record and while it’s only 3 songs, there’s more movement in each track that these 3 songs are better then most metal albums being released today. It feels like there’s more then 3 songs going on and that’s a testament to BTBAM’s ability to write creative and interesting music.
There’s nothing negative to say about this ep. Great stuff from Between the Buried and Me.
