On their self-titled debut, North Carolina’s Between the Buried and Me hadn’t yet morphed into the glistening prog-metal machine of their later material, but the ambition was there from the jump. The band’s rawest, grindiest and most sonically confrontational album breathed new life into metalcore by making full use of the five and six-minute song lengths, but also saving room for politically charged lyrics (see: the anti-Christian fundamentalism of “Arsonist”) — which were a rarity in the era’s inward-looking scene.
