Frontman Tommy Rogers of Between The Buried And Me (BTBAM) announced to the crowd that the show tonight in Kansas will be their last for the year. Although they didn't pull out anything special, they played spot on their entire set for another jaw-dropping performance.

Sandwiched in between Underoath and Blessthefall, this might have just been one of the oddest lineup's I've come across in recent memory. BTBAM does not incessantly tell the crowd to mosh, tell them to sing along, chide them to crowd surf, like blessthefall did so much. BTBAM's music speaks for itself and it incited just as much moshing and surfing as the other bands. The guitar solo during "White Walls" and the bass solo during "Disease, Injury, Madness" were nothing short of awe-inspiring, as they should be, Tommy's vocals were a welcome respite from the clean singing, emo-type vocals used by every band other than BTBAM.

Although it was clear most of the kids in the crowd were young and there for other bands, BTBAM made a huge mark on them.

Setlist:

(B) The Decade Of Statues
Obfuscation
Disease, Injury, Madness
White Walls

Underoath - n/a
Between The Buried And Me - 9/10
blessthefall - 4/10
To Speak Of Wolves - 5/10

I saw them about 2 years ago and they're great live. There are parts of their music I don't like much though (his clean singing and the weird polka parts), so I haven't totally got into them.

Hopefully when BTBAM tours again they get on a better tour package, and preferably they'll play more than 3 songs like they did when I saw them :mad:

Really good BTBAM setlist considering length, though I'm not sure why they didn't just do both parts of Foam Born.

First time I saw them they opened with Decade of Statues too, not playing the first part. Hmm.

At least, I think.

They just toured with Devin Townsend and Cynic in the spring, now sure how a BTBAM tour could be better than that

It's correct. I was at the Detroit stop on that tour.
