Review: BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME-“The Parallax II: Future Sequence”

By Lane Oliver

Between the Buried and Me was one of the first heavier bands that I really got into that ended up turning my view of music upside down. I remember being transformed into a total fanboy during my sophomore year of High School after listening to Alaska for the first time. At the time I had never heard anything like it and it instilled in me the desire to pursue various forms of extreme music. I was one of those kids who raved about Colors and pretty much the rest of their discographyto their friends but the friends never saw the appeal. You could say I was a BTBAM nerd. But somewhere between The Great Misdirect and now, my interest in them had faded. Not because they had put out a bad album, but because I was becoming absorbed in a plethora of other music and unfortunately BTBAM fell by the wayside. The first installment of the Parallax series aroused my curiosity, but not enough for me to want to listen to the band extensively like I had done way back when. But The Parallax II: Future Sequence completely surprised me. After hearing this seventy minute progressive metal opus my love for Between the Buried and Me was instantly rekindled. This, my friends, may be the most extensive and overall grandiose record they have ever written.
