Between The Buried And Me have built their reputation as one of hard rock's most inventive and ambitious bands. Since the NC outfit first welcomed listeners into their musically innovative and imaginative minds with their 2002 self-titled debut and 2003 follow-up The Silent Circus, they've continued their quest to chaotically rule the world, one bizarre chord progression after another. BTBAM's critically acclaimed third full-length Alaska, originally issued on Victory Records in 2005, took fans into uncharted territory while solidifying the band's reputation as the most innovative acts in metalcore. With lyrics that peer deep into the mind of visionary guitarist Paul Waggoner and frontman Tommy Rogers, Alaska takes listeners on a journey that is beautifully poignant while retaining the group's signature punishing edge. Alaska found the band creating a new sound and refreshingly unique vision with Hit The Pit recognizing BTBAM as "the newest band to cross over from hardcore to death metal and do it right."
