Colors Live Between The Buried And Me Review

"Colors " is...Colors just is.

TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

I want you to imagine Queen doing Death metal. That is what the Album Colors is.

The First song, Foam Born, is really quite amazing. It starts out with the soft reaches of his Freddy Mercury style Piano and voice, and then the song opens up. And "Colors" becomes something else entirely.

The song switches from "Really amazing sounding...and kind of happy" to "Instant Death Metal Rampage".

I simply have not seen this type of variety from any band in the world.

Between The Buried And Me - Foam Born

Oh, did I mention that the album is recorded off of their live DVD? It sounds better than the album version, and through the entire 66 minutes I don't think I found a single mistake on the Bands part.

Set List 

  • Foam Born (a) The Backtrack
  • Foam Born (b) The Decade of Statues
  • Informal Gluttony
  • Sun of Nothing
  • Ants of the Sky
  • Prequel to the Sequel
  • Viridian
  • White Walls

I can't actually explain the types of genres they went into on this. At one point on "Ants Of The Sky" they broke down and started playing a polka.

Seriously...that is just...stunning.

The Nerve of these guys, I just can't even begin to tell you.

I love it.

Tommy Rogers really well done Vocals are a huge highlight. And the blazing fast guitar is well mixed (So much that you can barely hear it most of the time).

I mean, I think I could have used a bit less Deathmetal in this album. It's split int about 70% Deathmetal, and 30% other awesome magic. I could have gone more for a 50/50 split, or even less.

But other than that, the album really has a lot to give. The mega-epic finisher "White Walls" is a masterpiece, but I think my favorite song on the CD is the melodic "Sun of Nothing". It really just gets catchy (Even the screaming has a certain amount of "Catchiness" to it).

How good do I think it is? I give Colors a...
