1. Between the Buried and Me are not metal.
2. They are not even remotely "underappreciated."
They have a massive following across the U.S. and U.K., which is the best you're going to get for a 'core band, because the rest of the free world isn't having that shit.
3. Darkane are alright, but I found them boring when I saw them.
Swallow the Sun opened up for THEM, and that's a gross misrepresentation of talent if I've ever seen it.
According to Metal-Archives it is.
"Remastered and re-issued in 2009 on 12" LP by Xtreem Music without bonus tracks and on CD with "The Four Instructive Tales... of Decomposition" demo as bonus tracks with right cover. LP contains no insert and has typos on the back side of the cover. Both (CD & LP) versions were mastered by label owner Dave Rotten at Xtreem Music Masterings in January 2009. There are three differently colored versions of the LP: red, grey and red/black splatter. Each limited to 500 copies."
Sheet, out of stock. Too bad, they usually have some good sale items I can toss in to mitigate shipping costs. Oh well, thanks for looking around though. Probably end up getting it through Xtreem themselves since it's only something like 8 Euros (plus an unknown shipping).
By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.
i did also score 2 good beherit shirts
DDtM & WS & Blood.
The prints are not that bad - worth the 15.
The bootleg 'offical' tops that they try to sell in record stores in AUS are the worst prints and the worst quality shirts that are sold at 35
The Contortionist seem to have been swept under the rug as this whole "Djent" phase continues to eat up the progressive metal scene. Although their second album came out a couple weeks ago so perhaps they shall gain some well deserved recognition. I think Fallujah should also be waaayyy bigger than they are. Those guys blow me away, especially their newest record.
