October 3rd, 2011

When North Carolina’s prog metal trailblazers, Between The Buried And Me came to London to play two shows at Camden’s Underworld, thought it would be a ruddy great idea to sit down with vocalist, Tommy Giles Rogers and guitarist, Paul Waggoner about their recent EP and their plans for an album.

Can you tell us a bit about the concept behind The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues EP and its sister record that is to follow it?

PW: “The EP starts with a character that’s actually from the last song of The Great Misdirect who has essentially decided to end his life by drifting off to sea. During a state of unconsciousness he starts having these visions of this other character that exists on some other planet, who knows how long ago in a different universe.

Tour Diary: Between The Buried And Me and The Red Chord blitz Japan

April 16th, 2010

Last month Between The Buried And Me went to Japan for the first time ever, with their buds The Red Chord playing in support. Our man in Japan, Mike Strata, went along for the ride. And he kicked all their asses at Mario Kart.

What do progressive/tech/death metal, preposterous amounts of Mario Kart, masturbation eggs, and the delights of the McGriddle have in common? The answer is (of course) nothing, but for 6 short days, these seemingly disparate elements were thrown together on a trek from one end of Japan to the other as Between The Buried And Me and The Red Chord descended upon the land of the rising sun and went hog wild on a whistlestop tour of its major cities.

Metal Mark gets ticketed for drinking too much; hangs out with Baroness and Behemoth

February 17th, 2010

What’s going on my metal friends! After two months I have returned to let you in on what I’ve been up to. Some of you may have been worried that I died of alcohol poisoning, maybe I should have three or four times, but I’m here!

Former August Burns Red vocalist Jon Hershey’s ex-girlfriend, named August, was so scornful and mental that she burned his dog Redd alive while he slept in his doghouse. I know girls can get upset when they’re dumped, but on a scale of 1 to 10, how much of a future serial killer do you have to be to burn a dog alive?
