Bury Your Dead don't waste any time on this record, they turn up, plug in and then attempt to rip your face off with aural brutality. To all intents and purposes they succeed admirably. Tough-guy Hardcore with a decent-sized dose of Metal a la Hatebreed is the order of the day and it certainly gets the job done. No fat, no fuss, the album's twelve tracks are over and done in a fraction over half an hour, with just one song longer than 3 minutes in length. A fact about this album which is of minor note is the naming scheme the band decided on for the song titles; they're all named after films featuring Tom Cruise. Whether they're all big fans, I can't pretend to know but it is an unusual idea. No matter though, if you want a vicious circle pit whipping up, Bury Your Dead will be just the band for you. Fans of bands like Hatebreed, Born From Pain or Ringworm, in fact any brutal Metalcore or Hardcore outfits will seriously appreciate this offering.

Pretty average hardcore metal, the follow up is a much better but also average at times listen,but seek out it's nothing personal, theres some great standout tracks and an poison the well/ corey tayloresque style vocal, which makes it for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars i see you're weak - did you see we're strong? 6 Jun 2008
By xdavex
Format:Audio CD
there is no messing whatsoever with this cd, although you do get a sense that the whole thing is rather tongue in cheek, based purely on JUST how dominant and brutal the breakdowns are. under the visceral vocals and raw-edged riffs lies conventional, highly charged and passionate hardcore with highly emotive and provokative lyrics of a suprising quality. cover your tracks is awesome in its brutality, putting the likesof hatebreed to shame but again there is an underlying sense that the tunes are a subtle satire against the everpresent 'tough guy/meat head' mentality. the fact that mat bruso quit to become a teacher shows a degree of intelligence does it not?

if you're a fan of tough guy hardcore you NEED this, if you like a sly laugh at the tough guys and love a good breakdown, you NEED this cd. the 'colour of money' and 'magnolia' are real standout tracks, as is 'losing it' which is an awsome shout at the live show. this stuff makes you want to punch anything as you walk down the street, but with a huge smile on your face

stay true, xdx

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in the genre 25 Jan 2005
By John - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Everybody says it, they are right. Bury Your Dead leads tough guy hardcore. Sure its nothing new but they do it well. The lyrics are above average, the drums impressed me. The breakdowns obviously own(overal the guitar playing was good because it didn't make me feel like I was listening to the same riff through the whole cd). The vocals are definetly in the spirt of Throwdown Terror and Hatebreed. The booklet is actually told like a picture book, it looks like its set to be in the 50's and the b/f is caught cheating, kills the girlfriend hides the body and so on. One original thing about this cd though is the names, all after Tom Cruise movies (That short shmuck better be flattered) if you thought "you had me at hello" was brutal, you havent heard anything yet. Grab a copy of this cd, learn the lyrics and get in the pit.

5.0 out of 5 stars PIT music 5 Jan 2005
By Total Scumbag - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Bury Your Dead are one of the top 4 modern tough guy hardcore kings alongside Hatebreed, Terror, and Throwdown. If you like slamming riffs, tough guy vocals, and lyrics that will make you stand up for yourself buy this. After listening to this disc I couldn't help but practice out some of my windmill kicks, my floor punches, windmill punches, and my overall Kung Fu style. Bury Your Dead has some of the most pulverizing breakdowns in hardcore, songs like Magnolia, Mission Impossible, and Mission Impossible 2 are just pure genius. If you thought Perseverance was tough, if you thought One With the Underdogs was tough, if you thought Haymaker was tough, let me tell you this you dont know the meaning of tough. Bury Your Dead has arrived to pump new life into the tough guy hardcore scene, now put your dancing shoes on and windmill kick someone in the face.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps a diamond in the rough 6 April 2005
By MaratsBathing - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Bury Your Dead are a pretty standard tough guy hardcore group. Heavy guitars, guttural vocals, breakdowns galore-nothing new at all. And yet, I find myself truly enjoying this album every time I give it a spin, which has been surprisingly often.

Pretty much everything on this record is above average. The guitars are nice and pummeling, and a lot of the work is pretty good. One reviewer namedropped Meshuggah in an earlier review, which I found absurd at first, but I've come to realize that a lot of this record sounds like the more straightforward 4/4 stuff on Destroy Erase Improve with a football player instead of a robot on vox. Oh, and no solos of course either.

The drums are good as well. Nothing Meshuggah-caliber this time, but pretty impressive for a hardcore band. Nice fills and double bass work compliment the pounding rhythm perfectly.

Vocalist Mat is probably one of the best vocalists in hardcore to this day. His deep, tough-as-nails shouting achieves a great balance between brutality and clarity. He doesn't bore or annoy me, which is more than I can say about almost every other hardcore vocalist.

The lyrics are another highlight, surprisingly introspective for such heavy-handed music. Not exactly poetry, but as the opening line from "Mission: Impossible 2" says, "I never said that I was a ****ing poet."

Probably my favorite thing about this record is the production. Thick, meaty, and brutal as possible: exactly how hardcore should sound. The dual guitars are captured perfectly, and the drums sound awesome. You can't really hear the bass too well, but when can you ever? Oh, and maybe I'm just easily amused, but I think that naming every one of your songs after a Tom Cruise movie is pretty funny, especially for a hardcore band. What's better than a bunch of sweaty kids in camo shorts shouting "Eyes Wide Shut!" or "Magnolia!" at shows?

Maybe this doesn't really deserve a four star rating. I guess it's not exactly hard to stand out in a genre where Hatebreed is the standard, but Bury Your Dead's Cover Your Tracks is both brutal as hell and a lot of fun. If you're into Terror, Throwdown, Hatebreed, Hoods, et al, I can't fathom why you wouldn't love this record. BYD easily surpass all the aforementioned bands as well as nearly all of their tough guy contemporaries. If you're not into hardcore, I'd understand and probably advise you to steer clear, but if you're a veteran mosher, you NEED this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stomping hardcore and I enjoy it thoroughly. 16 Nov 2004
By Jon - Published on
Format:Audio CD
These guys do not mess around. Throw Hatebreed and Meshugga in a blender and you will pour out Bury Your Dead. Great throaty vovals, a hundred tons of bottom end and enough break downs to make sure kids come out of shows bleeding. This really is some of the heaviest real hardcore I've heard in awhile. Many call these guys "tough guy" hardcore in the vein of Throwdown...and they are probably right. But BYD is much better, espcecially in the lyric department. If I could I would give this cd 6 stars just because they named every single song pointlessly (and hilariously) after a Tom Cruise movie. Here's the track list:

1. Top Gun

2. Vanilla Sky

3. Mission: Impossible

4. Eyes Wide Shut

5. Magnolia

6. The Outsiders

7. Mission: Impossible 2

8. The Color Of Money

9. Risky Business

10. Legend

11. All The Right Moves

12. Losin' It

Personally, Magnolia is the best track on the album. Has some great guitar work that stands out from all the other tracks.

Great for fans of hatebreed, throwdown, chimaira, darkest hour, or misery signals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mat is Back in Bury Your Dead! 13 Feb 2011
By Elizabeth Wonderham - Published on
Format:Audio CD
It was confirmed on January 17th 2011 that Mat Bruso is back on vocals, when I found out that Mat was back in the band, I was the happiest person in the world, because they are my favorite band, especially with Mat on vocals. It wasn't the same Bury Your Dead with Myke. Mat makes Bury Your Dead. I can't wait for their new album it should be out in Summer 2011. I bought Cover Your tracks when I was 13, and that was six years ago. I still love them just as much as I did then. This album, and Beauty and The Breakdown is the best hardcore albums ever! Bury Your Dead will rule and tear up 2011. I can't wait to see them live, it will be the best time of my life. Their Alive DVD was so amazing. Bury Your Dead is one of my favorite five bands. Beauty and The Breakdown is my favorite album released within the last seven years. I can listen to Cover Your Tracks, and Beauty and The Breakdown on repeat for hours, that's how good Bury Your Dead is. To me personally I think nobody in music is better than Bury Your Dead.
