The limited edition inclues a bonus DVD with a one hour documentary! What is Coma Ecliptic? It can be interpreted as a modern rock opera, and another ambitious concept album from a band that has completely mastered that format. Dan Briggs comments: “Spending the last year immersed in a world of Quadrophenia, Operation Mindcrime, The Wall- as well as Sondheim and Lloyd Webber musicals, Stravinsky and Mussorgsky symphonic suites; writing an over the top, dramatic and forward thinking rock opera was the most natural thing to do.” The story follows the wanderings of an unidentified man, stuck in a coma, as he journeys through his past lives. Each song is its own episode in a modern day, sort of The Twilight Zone-esque fashion. The unidentified man enters each world and is offered a choice: stay, or move on to the next in search of something better, something more “perfect.” The man does find his ideal life, but then is offered the ultimate choice of life or death. He chooses life and wakes up to his own actual reality. It’s at that moment he realizes that he had been in a coma – everything that happened had been dreams and false memories. After awakening, we find the man outside finally experiencing reality, and he sees what he has been missing: the world is beautiful, the air is fresh, and the people appear to be happy, and then he falls over dead. The take away from this is to make the best of your life. People are constantly searching for something better without taking the time to appreciate the things they have. What we need may already be here, and is hopefully real. We may all be in a coma in another life. Musically, Coma Ecliptic boasts a series of emotive peaks and valleys that drive the narrative along with the lyrics. Tracks such as “Memory Palace“, while sounding wholly unique, clearly have a distinct BTBAM flavor to which fans have grown so attached. “The Coma Machine” brings to mind prog in the most classic sense; think YES and King Crimson passages with the added layer of modern metal heaviness. “Dim Ignition” highlights Rogers’ continuing development as a keyboardist, but don’t fret, there’s still plenty of speed, technically challenging guitar, bass, and drum runs, and quirkiness throughout. What makes these parts work is the interplay of the heavy and technical with the simpler, almost cinematic, soft passages; that is the power of Coma Ecliptic. The listening experience is a journey, and when “Life in Velvet” brings the album to a sudden, triumphant end, fans will surely be reaching for the replay button.

Grandiose, dynamic, heavy, melodic, technically challenging: these are all words that fall equally short when trying to describe Between the Buried and Me's sonic offerings. When tasked with explaining the band's previous effort, The Parallax II: Future Sequence, Decibel Magazine claimed that the album "offers more substance than most bands put forth in entire careers" and Metal Hammer simply stated that it was "utterly captivating." Where does a burgeoning progressive act go from there? The answer is found in their seventh full-length album, Coma Ecliptic. Spanning just over an hour, the album stands as a significant step in the evolution for the group as a whole, as well as the individual musicians. Tommy Rogers: "Coma Ecliptic is a new life for BTBAM. Throughout the process we worked harder than we ever have and really pushed the BTBAM sound to a new identity. In a world of repetition, I'm very proud to be a part of something that is extremely rewarding, as well as frightening. When you don't push yourself you will never know what the outcome is. The outcome is Coma Ecliptic."

Aus der Presse:

Spätestens bei »Colors« 2007 war es klar: BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME haben Großes vor! Stück für Stück entfernte man sich vom hitzköpfigen Mathcore, um der Liebe zu Melodie und dem Prog Raum zu geben. »Coma Ecliptic« geht noch einige Schritte weiter – um als überlebensgroße Rock-Oper aufzutrumpfen! Das hochdramatische Konzeptalbum bietet eine reiche Palette an Emotionen und Stimmungen: YES und JETHRO TULL schauen um die Ecke, nur um von gnadenlos extremem Breaks umgebügelt zu werden – die wiederum flugs in 80er-Synth-Teppiche übergehen. So verkopft und technisch brillant die Amis auch vorgehen (und um Längen furchtloser als etwa MASTODON), so packend und begeisternd ist ihr neuester Ritt. Ganz typisch BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, nur in Widescreen und Technicolor. Wäre »Coma Ecliptic« ein Soundtrack, kämen für die Verfilmung nur Alejandro Jodorowsky oder David Lynch in Frage!
