Between the Buried and Me Unveil ‘Parallax II’ Studio Footage
Can’t wait until the new Between the Buried and Me album comes out? Of course you cant! BTBAM’s latest full-length, ‘The Parallax II: Future Sequence,’ arrives on Oct. 9, but you can hear bits and pieces of the epic record from this new studio footage, just released by the progressive metal giants.
‘The Parallax II’ clocks in at just over an hour, and if you’re a big BTBAM fan, you know that the band crams an incredible amount of music into every bar. Drummer Blake Richardson is heavily featured in the studio footage, where the insanely cohesive musician lays down some awesome drum tracks, even as frustration gathers between multiple takes.
Guitarists Paul Waggoner and Dustie Waring, along with bassist Dan Briggs, show off their incredible musicianship while committing their spacey leads to ‘The Parallax II.’
Waggoner spoke to GuitarWorld about the concept of the record. “The two main characters of the story take on a journey through space and time with the unenviable task of having to cure the flaws of humanity by any means necessary,” says Waggoner. “While the EP [The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues] served mostly as an introduction to the characters, ‘Future Sequence’ contains the action of the story. The lyrics are written in the stream of consciousness style, which really helps to capture the perspective and emotion of the characters. We really enjoyed the challenge of writing this record, and I think we were all pleasantly surprised with how well the music and lyrics jived with one another. I couldn’t be happier with how ‘Future Sequence’ turned out.”
