Between the Buried and Me - The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues
I have had the liberty to listen to the new Between the Buried and Me (BTBAM) EP "The parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues" on metalsucks.net (http://www.metalsucks.net/2011/03/31/exclusive-ep-stream-between-the-buried-and-mes-the-parallax-hypersleep-dialogues/) I was absolutely blown away by this 3 song masterpiece.
I will have to say every BTBAM has failed to disappoint my ear, but I was not expecting this 3 song EP to be THIS amazing. It really encompasses the BTBAM sound and what they are about. If you are a fan of any metal music I implore you to click the link above and give it a listen. When your mind is blown, go check out thier masterpiece album titled "Colors" and have it blown again.
My ear and brain really crave the progressive metal sound and these guy know how to fulfill that craving.
I understand that this type of music may not be everyone's cup of tea, even for metal fans, but these guys should not be overlooked. I love how they experiment with their sound. One instance being how the track "Augment of Rebirth", goes from a great metal riff/instrumental section then break down into what can only be described as a strange organ grinder type music, then back into an awesome metal guitar riff and vocals.
I have pre-ordered this album which comes along with an awesome t-shirt I cannot to get in the mail. The EP is only 3 tracks but the running time is around 30 minutes so it is a pretty decent length. That being said, I need more BTBAM!!
