However, being a progressive death metal band, ending with an atmospheric section like that, which is almost reminiscent of some of Plini's earlier, less heavy work, is a bold move, which I have to commend them for. I can start off by saying they are a favorite of mine that I listen to often. Automata: Part 1 is easily one of my least favorite Between The Buried And Me releases. Their style of extreme metal was introduced on their debut album in 2002 and began to gain increased attention with 2003's The Silent Circus. Everything from the chillingly crushing riff to the amazing outro solo around the 10-minute mark. It was some kind of musical manifesto, in which we found new purpose and direction simply by throwing caution to the wind and purging every ounce of creative energy we had, regardless of how unhinged it may have seemed at the time. The song starts with the same feel as the end of Glide, but with a heavy down-tuned guitar leading the way.
The first half of the song features a few brief mid-volume sections with a lot of tension, reminiscent of verses in certain Tool or TesseracT songs, combined with the band's melodic death metal sections, along with a few melodic clean vocal choruses. While this was an irritant for many to have to wait for the conclusion of a metal tale that is essentially two chapters of the same book, others like myself simply waited until both were released so that i could listen to them instantly in their proper order. The death metal is quickly introduced, and before the energy drops briefly, they mix the two together for an interesting effect. Since that time, the band has undergone many lineup changes. A year or so later, I found my music preferences leaning towards the extreme metal persuasion, and before long the album finally joined my collection.
The music is mainly divided between the two main approaches of technical metal and progressive rock but there are so many little things that get added that crop up unexpectedly and make the listening experience that much more entertaining. After over six minutes of pummeling aggression, the song slows down to a waltz with clean guitar and vocals. The energy and soul can be felt throughout every single track. The best moment for sure however is the gradual removal of all heavy elements until the song becomes absolutely beautiful, keeping nothing more than a minimalistic drum beat and lovely, interweaving acoustic guitar work, as the clean vocals come in and help create my personal favourite moment on the album, along with an incredible way to close it off. Though I live for variety, their approach is too kitchen sink for my tastes.
Lay Your Ghosts to Rest 10:02 04. The 2 minute intro to Naked By The Computer is excellent, both being incredibly beautiful and making for a perfect transition into the madness of the remaining 3 minutes. It sounds like a modern British prog band might have come up with this. The song ends with an distorted ambient section of people's voices under a piano part. Archived from on 14 July 2012.
The solo ends with a seemingly abrupt break of militaristic snare drum, similar to the end of California Über Alles, only much much shorter, before the band crashes into a final hit for the ending. The group's new cast of musicians included Glass Casket guitarist Dusty Warring and drummer Blake Richardson, as well as bassist Dan Briggs, recording and releasing Alaska in 2005 to critical acclaim. Users who ignore this rule will be banned from the site. I really do not like this two part release process and wish they would have waited until the entire album was done. While it's definitely rough around the edges, both the skill of each band member, and the complex, high quality compositions really stand out after a few listens, where everything no longer just sounds like meaningless noise. With that being said, more Between The Buried And Me is always a good thing.
Now that we have a complete album, it will take some time to evaluate it as a whole. These three tracks make up such an amazing display of this bands talent. I don't go back to this song as much as the ones before this, but every chance I give to it I begin to appreciate it more.

Metalcore purists may feel somewhat left behind, but if you liked the prog elements on Colors you'll be well-served here. While the lyrics are vague and only poetically and pointillistically fortify the overall theme, the album does confront the listener with the uncomfortable possibilities of covert technologies being used for behavior control and other means.
This proves to be both a positive and negative, as while it sometimes works, there are other times where it feels very much clear that the band still don't quite know how to write effectively at points, leading to certain songs feeling quite aimless. Within the six tracks, the pacing is impeccably designed. I find this to be the first proper example of the quirkier side of the band that would be explored in much greater depth on future albums. And that's just the first half of the song. I was prepared for the fast and highly technical playing.
That's not necessarily a bad thing, though: there's a reason Between the Buried and Me are a progressive death metal band. We will also be performing Coma Ecliptic in its entirety. Each of the eight tracks is designed to flow into the next, creating the impression of a continuously evolving piece rather than a collection of tracks, but it's a mixed bag musically. The opening section is carried up and down varying levels of energy, before finally breaking into a blast beat part in classic Between the Buried and Me fashion. While this album pretty much has the same ingredients as the last, there is substantial less sidetracking into totally non-metal genres and the progressive rock, space rock and alternative metal parts play more minor roles.
