Between The Buried And Me Explains Prog Credentials
Briggs says: "To me, it's forward thinking, it's writing about boundaries without worrying about song length or structure. Really, no rules I guess. Especially when you've been around as long as we have, it's constantly trying to do something new.
"The band started out 15 years ago in the hardcore scene and travelled through quite a lot of metal worlds. Something that was always kind of there and peeking its head out was this more progressive rock and metal influence."
BTBAM released latest album Coma Ecliptic last year, and Briggs says that it's a record they wouldn't have been able to make when they started out. He says: "If we had tried to write this album when we all got in the group in 2004, it would have been such an abrupt change and I don't think we were mature enough to write it."
