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.
