Between The Buried & Me Alaska 2005 Review by HughesJB4

8.9
Technical Prog Extreme Metal
Another step forward for the band after the very inconsistent The Silent Circus .
Great songwriting and musicianship, with some very technical moments.
Vocally, you can except clean vocals, deathcore/metalcore screams and death growls for a good variety.
Selkies:The Endless Obsession is no doubt the highlight track of the album, with an absolutely amazing instrumental section with incredibly emotional soloing from Paul Waggoner, climaxing in his amazingly smooth sweep picked section.
Some niggling problems are an inconsistent mix, with the guitars sounding almost a bit too chainsawish at times (too much high end) and a the drums being a little too forward in the mix.
