Best Music Of 2017

Best Music Of 2017

2016 was rightly dubbed as the year of the comeback, where almost every major band you didn't think would ever release records again returned with a bang. In contrast, 2017 was much less eventful. Fewer spectacular reunion releases, fewer stylistic breakthroughs in terms of genres rising their profile massively from previous years, and fewer surprises overall. Instead, 2017 it was largely characterized by fulfilled expectations by household names, which is what is also reflected in our sum up of the highlights below. Bands like Co...

Between The Buried And Me announce new double album: "Automata"

Posted by AP on 18/01/18

Raleigh, NC’s progressive metal titans Between The Buried And Me will release a new double album entitled “Automata” through Sumerian Records, with whom the band recently signed, this year. The first part of the opus, “Automata I”, is set to land in stores on March 09th, while “Automata II” will follow in the summer.


Vocalist Tommy Rogers had the following to say about the upcoming records:


Every single week music comes and goes. We can get music instantly and with this luxury, the listener has had a hard time sitting down with albums and exploring their every twist and turn. Because of this, we have decided to release our new album in two parts. Our music is dense and our albums are very long, so we want to give people two separate moments to dive in this year and explore new music that we’ve put our entire being into. We hope you enjoy the creation as much as we’ve enjoyed the process.


All of our music should build up to the newest record. That’s what happens with Automata. You can take little snippets from our past throughout this album. It sounds like Between the Buried and Me, but it’s still new. We hope to keep the music industry on its toes. This is part of doing that.


Guitarist Paul Waggoner added:


We never want to repeat ourselves. We’re always trying to do something different, and this album fell right into that sort of pattern. We push ourselves into new places, while retaining our basic sound. Musically, we go somewhere that’s fun and challenging. We never know how it’s going to turn out. These are uncharted waters for us. We’ve never written an entire piece and presented it in separate parts like this.

”Automata I” comprises the following songs:


01. “Condemned to the Grave”

02. “House Organ”

03. “Yellow Eyes”

04. “Millions”

05. “Gold Distance”

06. “Blot”


You can view the artwork here, while a music video for the first single, “Condemned to the Grave”, is set to premiere tomorrow, January 19th — keep an eye on our news feed for that.
