‘Between The Buried and Me’ Entering Charts Worldwide with New Album “Coma Ecliptic”


Between-the-Buried-and-Me-Live-DVDProgressive metal band Between The  Buried and Me have debuted at #1 on the Hard Music Billboard Chart, as well as the iTunes Metal Chart, Vinyl Chart, Amazon Hard Rock Chart, and Amazon Metal Chart, with their latest release “Coma Ecliptic.” It entered the Billboard Top 200 on position 12! In addition, the album charted on the iTunes Rock chart (#2), Canada Hard Music Chart (#3), UK Rock/Metal chart (#4), UK Independent Chart (#10), Canada Top 200 Chart (#17), Canada Top 200 Digital (#22), Germany Top 100 (#53) and UK Album chart (#74).

“Coma Ecliptic” is released on July 10 via Metal Blade Records.

“Coma Ecliptic” is, once again, an ambitious concept album. This time, the story follows the wanderings of an unidentified man, stuck in a coma, as he journeys through his past lives. Each song is its own episode in a modern day, sort of “The Twilight Zone”-esque fashion. The unidentified man enters each world and is offered a choice: stay, or move on to the next in search of something better, something more “perfect.”

“Coma Ecliptic” boasts a series of emotive peaks and valleys that drive the narrative along with the lyrics. Singer Tommy Rogers shares: ‘Coma Ecliptic is a new life for Btbam. Throughout the process we worked harder than we ever have and really pushed the Btbam sound to a new identity. In a world of repetition, I’m very proud to be a part of something that is extremely rewarding, as well as frightening. When you don’t push yourself you will never know what the outcome is. The outcome is “Coma Ecliptic.”‘

“Coma Ecliptic” was recorded in January and February of 2015 with longtime Between the Buried and Me producer Jamie King at Basement Recordings in North Carolina. Drums and piano were recorded with King and Kris Hilbert at the Fidelitorium. Final mixing and mastering was placed in the capable hands of Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Amon Amarth, Devin Townsend) at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden.

Feedback from the press for “Coma Ecliptic” has been absolutely stunning. It was album of the month in German Rock Hard magazine and has received rave reviews:

BTBAM, while being technically brilliant, rather speak tot he heart than the brain and have delivered the most fabulous Prog Metal tunes in 2015 so far!” (Michael Rensen, Rock Hard magazine, 9 / 10 points, album soundcheck winner)

A Prog Metal album as it should be: captivating, challenging and extraordinary. In short: richly detailed inner cinema par excellence!” (Mike Borrink, Eclipsed magazine, 8.5 / 10 points)

An incredible, exciting sonic landscape!” (Nils Wittrock, Fuze magazine)

A compelling album throughout, compelling and constantly engrossing album!” (Arne Kupetz,Legacy magazine, 14 / 15 Punkten)
