BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME’S TOMMY ROGERS SUFFERS FROM “HYPOXIA”
I don’t think there’s any universe in which Between the Buried and Me vocalist Tommy Rogers’ solo album, Pulse (which Rogers is actually releasing using what I believe is his middle name, Giles, and the more formal iteration of his first name), could be considered metal, but you really shouldn’t give a poop, ’cause a) Rogers definitely should have earned your respect by now, and b) it’s a wonderful album and if you don’t check it out you’re depriving no one but yourself.
Now the album closer, “Hypoxia,” is streaming here. It is an epic, achingly beautiful song, which, come to think of it, are words I could use to describe a lot of the music on Pulse. It is entirely possible that you won’t like this album, but only if you hate your ears.
So check out that track, and then come back and celebrate its excellence in our comments section. Pulse comes out February 1 on pioneering record label METAL BLADE RECORDS.
