THE ALBUM OF THE DAY IS… BURIED INSIDE, CHRONOCLAST
Talk about beauty in the breakdown: Canadian progcore outfit Buried Inside wrote this album as one very long piece of music, and it bears the epic weight of a symphony. The production is stripped down, the vocals owing more than a small debt to Converge, but the drums are complex, organic, ultimately mind-blowing, and the guitars are elegiac, poetic, moving. As with any good symphony, certain riffs and stanzas – only fitting, given the album’s preoccupation with the philosophy of time (see: “Time as Ideology,” “Time as Methodology,” “Time as Surrogate Religion,” etc.) fade away only to return later, growing more operatic with each appearance. Blistering, ferocious, ruminative – pulchritudinous. That’s the only word to describe this album.
