The Death of Your Perfect World
Buried Alive, Scott Vogel's pre-Terror band, was one of Victory's late-90s, jock hardcore bands. They brought the mosh, yet there was more going on than just dance floor justice. There's more, but not enough to give The Death of Your Perfect World any sort of mandatory, much less classic, status.
The Death of Your Perfect World sounds like Buried Alive is striving for the heavy, violent hardcore of Starkweather and The Hope Conspiracy, but can't quite pull it off. It's a cool record but there's nothing here that other bands haven't done better. It's not as technical as Calculating Infinity (not even close), it's not as murderous as Give Them Rope and it doesn't beat people like Satisfaction is the Death of Desire.
In the past, I've seen message board posts theorizing why Buried Alive never "got big." This is a mystery? The Death of Your Perfect World is the definition of second-tier. Folks into the Earth Crisis/Hatebreed style will dig this record. Otherwise...
