BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME Launch Music Video For “The Coma Machine”
May 13, 2015, 7 years ago
American progressive metal band, Between The Buried And Me, have released a video for "The Coma Machine”!, the second single off of the band's upcoming album, Coma Ecliptic.
About the music video, vocalist Tommy Rogers shared, "This video is special to me because it looks beyond the story that is on the record. It showcases the character preparing for his journey and is him basically saying bye to his old demons/life. This footage adds dialogue to the story and I think that is very unique. Wes and crew did a wonderful job creating a world that works well with the song and uniquely showcases the depth of this unstable character."
Between The Buried And Me recently released a clip from the Making Of Coma Ecliptic DVD. In the clip, Tommy Rogers discusses the concept of Coma Ecliptic.
The upcoming album is also now available for pre-order with special bundles and packages offered, including: CD, LP, two pre-order exclusive t-shirts, an exclusive hour long behind the scenes making-of DVD, and a Coma Ecliptic limited edition 27"x40" movie poster. Coma Ecliptic will be officially released worldwide on July 10th. Grandiose, dynamic, heavy, melodic, technically challenging and more, this album delivers.
Coma Ecliptic boasts a series of emotive peaks and valleys that drive the narrative along with the lyrics. Singer Tommy Rogers shares: "Coma Ecliptic is a new life for BTBAM. Throughout the process we worked harder than we ever have and really pushed the BTBAM sound to a new identity. In a world of repetition, I'm very proud to be a part of something that is extremely rewarding, as well as frightening. When you don't push yourself you will never know what the outcome is. The outcome is Coma Ecliptic."
Coma Ecliptic was recorded in January and February of 2015 with longtime Between the Buried and Me producer Jamie King at Basement Recordings in North Carolina. Drums and piano were recorded with King and Kris Hilbert at the Fidelitorium. Final mixing and mastering was placed in the capable hands of Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Amon Amarth, Devin Townsend) at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden.“Memory Palace”
