Album number seven for Between The Buried And Me sees them take a more organic approach, instead of throwing the kitchen sink at a recording studio - an approach that has done well by them. The new sound points towards the musical magniloquence of Dream Theater whilst maintaining their metallic core.
Far more than just a collection of songs Coma Ecliptic is an ever-evolving musical tapestry filled with lush soundscapes and dizzying complexity. Beginning with the grandoise leads of Node and ending in drenching blastbeats and crescendos of Floyd-esque melancholy. Yet again BTBAM have delivered a piece of work that has to be applauded for its sheer ambition and singularity but also cherished for its ability to astound.
