BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME
ALASKA
VICTORY

How a band hailing from North Carolina comes up with ALASKA as an album title is perplexing, but not nearly as head scratching as this 11-track schizophrenically sonic sojourn. Between the Buried and Me confidently displays all of the dastardly metallic devices needed to blow your head clean off your shoulders on tracks like “Roboturner”, but it’s during songs like “Selkes: The Endless Obsession”, where the band gets all Opeth meets Genesis on your ass, or on the acoustically-led Caribbean feel of “Laser Speed” when you can actually see why this band is one of the most brilliant on the extreme music scene today. Lose your inhibitions (don’t fret, tough guys, there’s enough testosterone here to fill your most violent urges) and soak in the progressively pummeling beauty of ALASKA.
