      Between the Buried and Me's second album (2003).

      Between the Buried and Me is an interesting band, particularly as their albums become increasingly refined as their career continues, as they gradually learn to overcome their faults. The band's main problem in these earlier releases is how jarring their diverse influences sound when juxtaposed in the same song, lacking any kind of coherent structure as they move from grindcore style riffs and deep guttural vocals one moment to melodic emo the next, without any of the style or class of melodic death metal which essentially does something pretty similar, but is somehow much better. I don't make the rules, but as a brainwashed metal fan, I follow them obediently.

      'The Silent Circus' is a noticeable departure from its more death metal influenced predecessor, this style only showing up as late as 'Ad a Dglgmut,' while the rest is more in the tradition of grind and hardcore, most reminiscent of something like Dillinger Escape Plan. That said, Between the Buried and Me possess a sound all of their own, however shoddy it may be at times, leaping between extremes with very little in the way of a satisfying mix. It's songs that stick to a single style, such as the surprising acoustic 'Shevanel Take 2,' that end up working the best, but the band has cried wolf so many times that it's still hard to enjoy even these lighter songs without fear that they'll soon explode into an angsty roar, as happens the majority of the time.
