Buried Alive (band)
Buried Alive were at the forefront of the late 90's hardcore scene and despite their short-lived career, are credited with influencing many of today's more popular hardcore acts. BA's genre defying power was best seen by the diversity of bands they toured with; including Snapcase, Vision of Disorder, 7 Seconds, Kid Dynamite, Hot Water Music, Elliott, Skarhead, Converge, Candiria, All Out War, and Reach the Sky. Lead singer Scott Vogel, disbanded the outfit to form LA hardcore band Terror. Primary songwriters, Matt Roberts and Joe Orlando, still perform together in the Buffalo based band MOTHER RED.
Original Victory Records BIO: "Combining the speed and intensity of the music that shaped their youth, with a raw and brutal edge that will put them at the forefront of today's hardcore scene. Each member of Buffalo's BURIED ALIVE draws from a long history of active involvement in the hardcore scene. Featuring ex-members of Despair, Slugfest, Hourglass and Union. Due to their past endeavors, BURIED ALIVE expected some immediate interest in their band, but with only a handful of shows under their belt, the overwhelming response has by far exceeded everyones expectations. Less than a year after their inception, the band has already taken their aggressive live show on the road with only a demo tape available. Their US Summer Tour with Brothers Keeper is just the beginning of the onslaught of what is to come.
Despite their contrasting backgrounds and beliefs, the tight bond within BURIED ALIVE is a living testament of unity amongst diversity, which is essential in the hardcore scene.
Aspiring to make every song a crushing display of emotion and power, songwriting has become a very important and involved process for the band. Approaching the completion of the debut full length, their music is sure to take the hardcore scene by storm.
BURIED ALIVEs material deals with topics ranging from animal rights, religion, problems within the hardcore scene to drug abuse. "
