History

Buried Inside was born in the capital of Canada, Ottawa in 1997 when the members met in high school and released an album called In And Of The Self in 1999 and another called Suspect Symmetry in 2001. The band managed to tour with Converge and future label-mates The End until signing to Relapse Records in 2004. The group had already completed the recording by the time it contacted and signed with Relapse Records. The album was issued in early 2005, but Matias Palacios-Hardy was replaced by Emmanuel Sayer in late 2004.

Reviews

BURIED INSIDE - CHRONOCLAST - RELAPSE
Man, I'm in such awe that metalcore's actually become a predominant part of the heavy metal landscape. I mean, there are some bands playing the sound that are pretty rad (Hatebreed immediately comes to mind, but even those guys admit they're more of a hardcore band than anything else), but in general the subgenre in question is so entrenchingly boring (typical metalcore song: huge riff, screamed vocal, chug-chug pre-chorus, chorus, screamed vocal, chorus, mosh-part breakdown, huge riff). Even metalcore's image has become something of a contrived joke, all those bands styled in Luke Skywalker hair, eyeliner, black nailpolish, big piercings, and Iron Maiden shirts sported at the height of ironic fashion. Anyway, it's lucky for Buried Inside that aside from a totally generic metalcore name, the group has tinkered with the metalcore formula enough to recall cool super-indies no one's ever heard of (Calico System, Superstatic Revolution) but also diced shit up in the most Neurosis and Cult Of Luna vein. Further, what's eminently transcendent about Buried Inside is the group's use of spacey, atmospheric passages to subdue the rage and create tonal dynamic; these boys from Ottawa are smart non-linear ones, methinks. What's even better is that Chronoclast is a record you can actually listen to instead of just buying for cred's sake and name-dropping while the plastic ends up gathering dust on your shelves (fuckin' scenesters). Synopsis: Buried Inside -- despite the preconceptions you might have -- comes off relevant, insightful and self-effacing in the most emotionally jagged of ways. - James Tape
