Over the Christmas break, modern prog-metal titans Between the Buried and Me confirmed that the group will be returning to Jamie King’s Basement Studios to record the hotly anticipated follow-up to the group’s monumental concept album The Parallax II: Future Sequence early this month. The group’s seventh album is slated to be a rock opera, but the details of the story and the extent to which the band will take the record into “operatic” territory are currently unknown. However, a short clip posted to frontman Tommy Rogers’ Instagram account strongly hints at some over-the-top avant garde weirdness on the vocal front.
The vocals are comparable to Future Sequence‘s ‘Bloom‘, so if the band goes all-out with different characters and pushes the band to flamboyantly avant garde extremes, I think we’ll be in for a treat.
Expect a press release soon when the band enters the studio. More info when we have it!
