Between the Buried and Me made a stop in the Motor City as part of its Coma Ecliptic Tour.
Progressive metal titans, Between the Buried and Me, hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina recently stopped in Detroit and played before a raucous crowd at St. Andrew’s Hall. Known by their fans as simply “B-T-BAM,” Between the Buried and Me played a 90-minute set that featured crowd surfing, thrash metal riffs, progressive metal solos, and BTBAM’s own style of mixing various metal genres into a cohesive sounding and aesthetically pleasing final product.
Providing the main support for the evening was legendary Norwegian progressive black metal band, Enslaved. Enslaved, which started in the days of “let’s go burn that church down” Norwegian black metal that most people associate with that scene, has evolved their style to incorporate progressive sounds, song structures, and vocals, all of which made this tandem perfect partners to share the stage.
Our photographer, Josh Kahl, was on hand to capture images of this night of progressive metal.
