So there we have it! NASA have made a huge potentially life changing discovery in finding Trappist1 and seven earth like inhabitable planets. So naturally we thought, what would happen if you were to send Metal bands out to space and what Metal bands would be the spaciest? So we give you, Ten Metal Bands That Would Fit Perfectly On Trappist1!
The seminal Prog album that very much launched the band into their own mad stratosphere turns ten this year and are the band hinting at a commemorative tour?
Between The Buried and Me will also be performing their Coma Ecliptic album in its entirety.
Currently on their US tour with August Burns Red and soon to be label mates Good Tiger Between The Buried and Me let in on what it’s like to see the band with “The Ectopic Stroll“.
With support from our friends in The Faceless and Good Tiger!
More than halfway into our list we now invite you to look at today’s Album of the Year. Bare in mind none of these are in order but are merely part of our countdown!
Having previously been able to speak to Between The Buried And Me mastermind on the eve of their brand new album Coma Ecliptic we were lucky enough to speak to Dan yet again. Delving deeper into the process of Coma Ecliptic and what elements the band employ to create a record of such grandeur we sat down with the bassist on their recent London date prior to their pitch perfect show. Turn on the “Node” and step into “The Coma Machine”…

Breathing new life into the often overlooked stuffy seventies ideology Prog is very much alive and kicking. Throughout it’s lifespan two big hitters have been both the UK and the US. With the English bands being some of the most important in the primal stages of Prog, acts like Pink Floyd, Yes and Genesis to name a few.

After having no doubt wowed audiences over in the UK with the Coma Ecliptic Tour II, the band are embarking back over to the states for the Coma a Ecliptic Tour III.
A staple in the make up Prog’s DNA. The concept album is an artists secret weapon. Based upon creating not only a narrative but a universe in itself. Distilled until the time is right to bring reality crashing down and escape once again through another listen. Beginning as an almost hardcore act, Between The Buried And Me have had a natural growth. Slowly maturing from the all out assault that was The Silent Circus, creating more thought provoking albums with each release and it was all leading up to their finest hour, Coma Ecliptic.
The wait is almost over, though we’ve got something to tie you all over…
Releasing potentially their most important album of their career, Between The Buried And Me will be returning to our ears this summer. Whilst patiently waiting for their most ambitious record yet Coma Ecliptic, we were able to speak to bassist and one of Between The Buried And Me’s musical masterminds Dan Briggs about what the story will entail on this new venture, how it was moving from Victory Records to Metal Blade and their evolution from being an almost hardcore / metal band to the forerunners of Progressive Metal today. Along with the possibility of the band performing the new album in its entirety on tour…
