Editorial Reviews

Bury Your Dead continue the bloody carnage that began with their brutal Victory debut, Cover Your Tracks and their notorious live DVD, Alive with another tale of punishing, stylish metal-core called Beauty And The Breakdown. Beauty And The Breakdown, produced by Jason Suecof (Trivium, God Forbid) expands the Bury Your Dead tradition of mixing fast, furious street-smart hardcore, scathing metal and ugly, confrontational lyrics that Bury Your Dead gave birth to 5 years ago in the New England hardcore scene.

This is Bury Your Dead's best work hands down.
Cooper Lauck
Which is refreshing since a lot of people in this style of music equate grainy and muddled production with sounding raw (Which I feel is crap).
Mr. Ugly
A very good cd from the band currently touring on the Family Values Tour this year.

Due to the recent popularity resurgence of heavy metal (particularly hardcore influenced metal), a number of cool bands have kind of slipped through the cracks and are unjustifiably dismissed as being an untalented Johnny-come-lately. Consider Bury Your Dead: there are several other mosh/hardcore groups out there today and some of them are fairly popular, so bands like this one are sometimes passed off as a poor man's Hatebreed. But BYD should be (and probably will become) quite a bit more popular, because this genre has many loyal fans, and "Beauty And The Breakdown" (the Boston-based quintet's junior release) is actually very good. The musicianship and songwriting on display here are, while not awe-inspiring, completely solid and professional. The songs ooze with blistering guitars and cement-block-to-your-head drums which accumulate to produce catchy, brutal rhythms. And, of course, the songs are made complete when straight-from-the-gut (though generic) vocals and powerful, well-placed breakdowns are added. Album highlights are the super-heavy, churning rhythms on the two opening tracks ("House Of Straw" and "A Glass Slipper"), the explosive, bulldozing "The Poison Apple," the rapid power chords and propulsive, driving double bass work which fuels "A Wishing Well," and the door closing "House Of Brick," which sounds like a waterfall spewing...uh...bricks. Ultimately, "BATB" is nothing you haven't heard before, but that's a small price to pay for the immense levels of great energy and brute force found here.

Also the title of an awesome Haunted song, Bury Your Dead is back again. i always thought that cover your tracks didn't get the praise it deserved, I must have listened to that album 100 times it was quite simple and repetitive but I freakin loved it mostly because it delivered the raw brutality that I crave. I also thought that naming all of their songs after Tom Cruise movies was a cool idea having grown up watching Tom's ridiculous yet entertaining drivel throughout my childhood. Their follow up Beauty and the Breakdown is just as brutal and focused. I'm not sure how I feel about the title and the concept, but the songs are better written and the production is twice as good. Refraining from all the bells and whistles of most of todays attempts at metal brutality, Bury Your Dead stays true to their style with no appologies. Great work guys don't ever change.

Bury your dead are baco with their fourth album, "Beauty and the breakdown". Sort of a concept album in the very loosest term, the booklet for the story tells a "fairytale" about a corrupt king. This album is just as heavy and brutal as the previous three, except the band experiments just a little bit with keyboards on a couple tracks on here, but they make it work . A very good album from a very good band

Bury Your Dead's third full length album from 2006 "Beauty and the Breakdown" is just an all out heavy, vicious, gut-punching, heart pumping, skull smashing, full bodied, straight forward hardcore/metal assault that is guaranteed to beat you completely senseless from start to finish. About a year ago, I borrowed "Beauty and the Breakdown" from a friend of mine from work, and when I listened to it, I was immediately hooked, so I decided to burn myself a copy, and I've been listening to it ever since, and it has also become one of my favorite hardcore/metal cd's lately. The song titles on this album are named after and inspired by various fairy tales including Snow White, Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretal, etc, much like the songs on BYD's previous release from 2004 "Cover Your Tracks" were named after various Tom Cruise movies. Jason Suecof's production is just strong, solid, and flawless. The vocals by Mat Bruso are just excellent and amazing, as he just screams and howls straight from the gut with anger and passion. The guitars are dare I say just brutally heavy and downright crushing and blistering, and the tone is so heavy and thick you could just cut it with a knife. The breakdowns are very powerful and super-heavy, and the rhythms are just wicked and devastating. Mark Castillo does an excellent and awesome job with his drumming, I mean it's just heavy, loud and downright punishingly fast. I enjoy every song on this album, but I'm going to give you a look at some of the highlights on here anyway. "House of Straw" is an explosive super-heavy opener that features brutally heavy riffs, punishing drumwork, and brutal, commanding screams. The next track "A Glass Slipper" continues the aggression with more crushing, punishing riffs, and more brutal vocals.Read more ›

First off, I typically hate metalcore. I left that style of music for bigger and better things in the metal genre. However, sometimes I feel the need to just rock out which stuff like isis, cult of luna, opeth, ect can't really provide. I was listening to sirius radio the other day when I head House of Straw and immediately started digging it. Well I purchased the full album today and let me say it is surprisingly really good. This is what metalcore is suppose to be, not the thousands of generic boring bands out there in the scene today. The album is pounding and maintains an unbelieveable high energy level throughout. The production is stellar as well. Which is refreshing since a lot of people in this style of music equate grainy and muddled production with sounding raw (Which I feel is crap). The production of Bury Your Dead's last album hurt the album. Now the album is one dimensional, but that is probably its strongest point. There is no attempt by the band to be something that they are not. Instead they focused all the time on creating just raging beatdowns. Plus the breakdowns in the songs are quite good (finally) and seem to fit in perfectly with the songs (as opposed to being just dropped into random places which I feel unearth is at times guilty of). Overall I find this album a lot of fun to just blast at obscene volumes while I work out, play video games, or piss off my roommates. Fun Stuff!
