Between the Buried and Me is an American metal group based out of North Carolina. They have released a total of six studio albums, as well as one EP, a cover album, and a live DVD/CD. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2002 through Lifeforce Records, while their later releases were made through Victory Records. As of 2011 they have been signed to Metal Blade Records. Their most recent release is The Parallax II: Future Sequence (2012), which is the prequel to their first EP, The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues.
Between the Buried and Me’s general music style has been classified as a blend of progressive metal, death metal, and metal core. ALLMUSIC stated in a review that one minute the band may be playing thrash metal, and the next they could be rocking out with some death metal growls. “…the metal take on things can seemingly change in a flash as lead vocalist Tommy Rogers flashes out his vocals and utilizes the keyboards to create something that sounds more like it should be on a Smashing Pumpkins album.”
Between the Buried and Me announced in early February that the group would record and release a live album for The Parallax II Future Sequence. They will play the entire album with additional instruments including the saxophone, percussionists, the flute, and a string quartet. The release is to be expected sometime in the Fall of 2014.
