Label: Victory Records

Between The Buried And Me first saw success with Victory Records, before leaving to Metal Blade Records. To commemorate this, a Best Of collection was released summing up their time from 2003-2009. The two disc set covers a wide breadth of material including the albums: The Silent Circus, Alaska, Colors, The Great Misdirect and Colors Live.

While listening to Best Of, fans can hear the progression BTBAM made over the 6 year period. When they first started they were chaotic but as time went on, they honed their talents creating complex melodies improving their overall sound.

Along with the 2 CD set, a DVD is also included containing the band’s 3 music videos and a film titled “Synesthesia” which gives the visuals to Colors. This is great for new fans of BTBAM as they can hear the progression of the group over 6 years.
