Between the Buried and Me’s “Ants of the Sky” Is 13 Or So Minutes of Drum Cam Mania

Sometimes you have a fix for drum cam footage but you’re short on cash. You need to stretch those dollars. Some 1 and 1/2 minute grindcore just isn’t going to give you that bang for the buck that you need in this economy. It’s not like YouTubes are free. Thank god for Between the Buried and Me and their 13+ minute songs. This is how you stretch your song budget. You could argue that a prog-metal opus has plenty of content without that cowboy shuffle near the end, but you’d be wrong.


(10 gallon) hats off to you Blake Richardson and your quarter hour of drumming. I’m sure it took a lot out of you. Now do stretch and take a piss or something.

  • This song and “Sun of Nothing”, all the way to the end of “Colors” is probably my favorite series of consecutive, linked songs from any metal CD ever recorded.

    Basically, loved the video…though I wish the quality of the entire band in this one was as good as the recording for the “Colors Live” version of the song.

    • Took the words out of my mouth. “Sun of Nothing” into this song sends shivers down my spine every time.

  • Was this at the TLA last night? That show was beyond amazing. My ears are still ringing. Blake is a tank.

    • That show was fucking flawless. My body is so sore.

      The hoedown pit…
