Between The Buried And Me

Grandiose, dynamic, heavy, melodic, technically challenging: these are all words that fall equally short when trying to describe Between the Buried and Me’s sonic offerings. When tasked with explaining the band’s previous effort, The Parallax II: Future Sequence, Decibel Magazine claimed that the album “offers more substance than most bands put forth in entire careers” and Metal Hammer simply stated that it was “utterly captivating.” Where does a burgeoning progressive act go from there? The answer is found in their seventh full-length album, Coma Ecliptic. Spanning just over an hour, the album stands as a significant step in the evolution for the group…

The Contortionist

Some bands follow established mores. Others may embrace disparate elements, but ultimately fail to break the confines of a particular subgenre context. And then there are bands that strip mine their initial reference points and methodically, organically and bravely create a multiverse of their own, a space where they are the only players.

The Contortionist is such a collective, achieving a coveted level of self-realization, creative execution and sophistication with their adventuresome, cosmos evoking progressive rock.

Sure, there are plenty of credible reasons The Contortionist is often associated with top-tier, critically embraced progressive death metal and mathcore groups…

Polyphia

Coming to you from the heart of North Texas, the fast-rising instrumental quartet known as Polyphia is bringing a deadly dose of CATCHY to the forefront of music. Between evocative, emotionally stimulating melodies, powerful rhythms, and thick, soulful bass licks, you’ll have these songs stuck in your head for years to come.

With the September 2014 release of their debut full-length album “MUSE”, this group of young musicians just took the rule book of modern music and ripped it into a million pieces. Seamlessly blending the powerful elements of progressive rock with the catchy hooks of mainstream music, this strong collection of Epics takes the listener on an emotional…

Toothgrinder

Heavy music can be like a painting in the right hands. When executed correctly, splashes of ethereal soundscapes color technical, tight, and taut brutality, yielding a portrait that’s as aggressive as it is alive. In keeping with that approach, it might seem like Toothgrinder’s paintbrush is literally on fire after just one listen to their full-length Spinefarm Records debut, Nocturnal Masquerade. These five musicians—Wills Weller [drums], Jason Goss [guitar], Matt Mielke [guitar], Matt Arensdorf [bass], and Justin Matthews [vocals]—certainly know how to create combustible artwork.
“The album’s overall theme is this dark, eerie charade through the night,” explains Justin.…
