Between The Buried And Me Stream “Memory Palace” From ‘Coma Ecliptic’


Apart from damn good musicianship and really long track lengths, you never quite know for sure what you’re going to get from North Carolina’s Between The Buried And Me. With their eighth LP set to release on July 10 through Metal Blade, we’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of new material following 2012’s epic The Parallax II: Future Sequence.

The lead single from the band’s newest full-length offering – a concept album titled Coma Ecliptic – is some of their proggiest material to date. “Memory Palace” is a 10-minute jam session soaked in synth, shreds, and plenty of intricate percussion as per usual. Vocally, they’ve lessened the amount of harsh metal vocals significantly in lieu of Tommy Rogers’ actual singing, which at times ventures into some pretty strange territory. Musically, the lengthy track spans sounds reminiscent of Rush, Pink Floyd and even Mazzy Star, but through and through, it’s all undeniably Between The Buried And Me.

Coma Ecliptic pre-orders are available now through Metal Blade. You can stream “Memory Palace” below and catch the band on tour this summer with Animals As Leaders and The Contortionist. All dates for those shows are below as well.
