BTBAM shouldn't change a damn thing, almost all their songs have groove oriented beats, that do have odd timing patterns but still keep the grind/hardcore mix in there. Its amazing the way they can come up with such songs. Pure talent. And they do not sound anything like Opeth, and should not ever try to. As for the vocals, WHAT THE **** ARE YOU THINKING!!?? Its not the best, i agree, but it goes amazing with the beat of their songs, and his singing voice is awesome too.

I agree, the S/T and TSC are amazing albums, but musically, Alaska set a new bar. I don't know how many of you actually play guitar [seems like very few ] but what they did on Alaska... wow.

BTBAM is the perfect core band. I said it, and I totally stand behind it.

There are FAR too many references and comparasins to Opeth in this thread. There is no band in existence, let along Between the ****ing buried and me, that can be mentioned in the same sentence as Opeth. Thats almost as bad as when people compare Trivium to Metallica. You cant compare ****ty metalcore bands to metal legends.

P.S. did anyone hear, Avenged Sevenfold are the next Iron Maiden.

Dude, you may not like BTBAM, but they're definitely the Opeth of metalcore. You can't listen to Selkies and say they don't share a lot in common. Their first album is decent, but the more I listen to Alaska, the more it sounds like a real metal record.

^ No, they are not. I own the silent circus. I used to like BTBAM. Listened to them a bit the other day. They may be better than every other hardcore/metalcore band ever, but they don't push the limits as much as Opeth. I used to listen to the Silent Circus on a regular basis. When I listened to it the other day, it was the same. nothing new. When you listen to Opeth, each listen is a totally new experience. You discover something new every time. I'll admit, BTBAM are good, they are progressive, and they try new things, but what they have done with the metalcore genre can't even be compared to what Opeth has done with the death metal genre.

agreed with above completely about opeth being very prog. but BTBAM is so ****ing amazing.

i thought the selftitled was very raw and had some really good ideas in it and it all came together in Silent Circus. and whoever was asking about who actually plays guitar...i do...and i totally agree, Alaska is AMAZING technically on the guitar...the sweeps at the end of selkies are insane!

i think that alaska brought out the very best in the guitar work but the vocals were undermined because of the mixing. if u listen to like robotuner u can barely hear the vocals over anything else its like they didnt want you to hear the vocals. and i think it also has to do with personal opinions and if you dont like how it sounds you shouldnt listen to it.

oh and i didnt hear bout avenged being the new iron maiden, but metal hammer said that MCR were gonna as great as ozzy osbourne

BTBAM is ok. Their drums and guitar are wicked but the songs dont really have a structure at some times. It sounds like its just trown together with a screamer.

who else agrees that BTBAM should do like a dual cd where one is all crazy and hardcore and the other CD is totally chill like in selkies or backwards marathon when he keeps singing "it's raining." I always get really relaxed in those parts and then it gets all rapeyouintheasscore.

All i've been able to listen to for the past 3 days is a playlist on my ITunes called "Epic" which is just every song by Between the Buried and Me and every song by Dead To Fall. Easily the best metalcore i've ever heard, some of the best music i've ever heard.

But the rapeyouintheasscore parts are the best ones...
