Between The Buried and Me - Prequel to the Sequel
Colours, 2007, Progressive Metal, Rock Band 2 bonus 20
A great progressive metal tune, starts off with a melodic, laid back rock beat with a few fun fills, then kicks into the real deathmetal side of this band. We're talking blast beats and rolls going left to right and back again at speed. Very tricky as you're snare hand has to alternate with your hi-hat and kick drum very fast for several measures. Later on there are some fun poly rythmns straight forward snare and cymbal work but slightly tricky kick pedal following the off-kilter guitar riffs, unfortunately the song is cut off around mind way but does end with a minute of straight forward drumming with more fun fill and if you sucked at the blast beats, this is where you can salvage some points.
Defaintely a fun song to play by a band who drummer, Blake Richardson, is among the most creative and expert drummers in the metal world today.
