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 as a whole, as well as the individual musicians: vocalist / keyboardist Tommy Rogers, guitarists Paul Waggoner and Dustie Waring, bassist Dan Briggs, and drummer Blake Richardson.
Gearing up for the new album and US tour, Metal Wani’s Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with bassist Dan Briggs. He discusses new album “Coma Ecliptic”, songwriting, musical direction, US tour with Animals As Leaders and much more.
