Dan Briggs of Between the Buried and Me talks to The Age of Metal

DIMMU BORGIR - Interdimensional Summit

Between the Buried and Me: perhaps the most popular band of the 2000s that has a ton of technical merit. Ever since 2007’s Colors came out, the band’s been on a roll, with their most recent EP The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues gaining a lot of critical reception. It seems that they have no intent of slowing down. Given their recent output, this is a good thing. Their live show has only gotten better since as well. This is the fifth time I’ve seen them and it was by far their best. You owe it to yourself to catch them live if possible. You will not be disappointed.

I jumped at the chance to be able to talk to Dan Briggs (the bass player) during their recent stop in Tucson. Ever think they’d leave veganism? What do they think of Metallica’s Lulu album? Listen below…
