New Video Interview With ‘Between The Buried And Me’ Available


On August 24, Alvashredd of Capital Chaos conducted an interview with progressive rock/cutting-edge metal innovators Between The Buried And Me at the San Francisco stop of the 2012 Summer Slaughter Tour. You can now watch the chat in two parts below.

Audio samples of all the tracks that are set to appear on The Parallax II: Future Sequence, the new album from Between The Buried And Me, can be streamed in the YouTube clip at this location. Due on October 9 via Metal Blade Records, the CD, which clocks in at approximately 72 minutes, features artwork from Charlotte, North Carolina artist and designer Chandler Owen [Underoath, Shai Hulud, Hopesfall].

The Parallax II: Future Sequence was recorded at The Basement Studios in Winston-Salem, North Carolina with longtime friend of the band and producer Jamie KingJamie engineered, mixed and mastered The Parallax II: Future Sequence, which makes this the sixth release Jamie and Between The Buried And Me have worked together on.

Regarding the concept of The Parallax II: Future Sequence, the new full-length album picks up where the 2011 EP, The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues, left off. “The two main characters of the story take on a journey through space and time with the unenviable task of having to cure the flaws of humanity by any means necessary. While the EP served mostly as an introduction to the characters, Future Sequence contains the action of the story. The lyrics are written in the stream of consciousness style, which really helps to capture the perspective and emotion of the characters. We really enjoyed the challenge of writing this record, and I think we were all pleasantly surprised with how well the music and lyrics jived with one another. I couldn’t be happier with how Future Sequence turned out,” comments guitarist Paul Waggoner.

Vocalist and keyboardist Tommy Rogers adds his thoughts on the musical direction of The Parallax II: Future Sequence. “This album is Between The Buried And Me on steroids. I feel like we have created an album that perfectly mirrors the band we’ve been trying to create since day one. An album that has sounds that will stimulate many genres and music fans alike. A conceptual journey that takes the listener to worlds that seem familiar and worlds that make you scratch your head. From start to finish this is music we want to create, not music we think people want us to create. We create songs that keep us [and hopefully you] excited about heavy music. Keep listening… something new will be there each time. Enjoy the music… we enjoyed writing it.”

The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialoguesis a three-song strong, 30-minute tour de force of modern heavy music. Produced and engineered by the Grammy award–winning David Bottrill with BTBAM, the record soared to #54 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in its first week of release while landing the #5 spot on the Hard Music chart, and #8 on the Independent Albums chart in its first week of release. The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues also debuted in Canada charting at #62 on the Top 200 Current chart, #6 on the Hard chart, and #14 on the Independent chart.
