Following what has already been a busy news week for popular North Carolina metallers Between the Buried and Me, the band has now debuted a six-and-a-half minute sample of new song ‘Specular Reflection‘.
The new track, which will feature on upcoming EP, ‘The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues‘, was recently premiered on US music magazine Alternative Press‘s website.
"The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues” will introduce two human characters who live in different planes of existence, separated by millions of light years. We find that each is confronted with similar personal issues that they need to reckon with. Both characters make decisions that will change their lives, and perhaps the course of the universe, forever.â€¨â€¨
Musically, it sounds like Between The Buried And Me. The record has elements of aggression, beauty, quirkiness, and pure cacophony. For “Part 1″, we establish several themes which I’m sure will be revisited in the lengthier “Part 2″, which is something we really look forward to. We love to expand on simple ideas and see where they take us," guitarist Paul Waggoner said previously.
‘The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues‘ is due out April 12th via Metal Blade.
