Buried Alive brings a heavy melodic groove metal Seattle style hard rock from Hole Dug Deep, coupled with their dark view of life as we know it. With Buried Alive, the band look at the world through the eyes of a dark soul traveler into the mind of evil and death. There you will find Hole Dug Deep’s signature heavy guitar melodic bass and dark vocals. It is truly a journey to the pits of hell.
The album covers many themes and begins with a strong message to realize self destruction before it’s too late. We then move through odes to the homeless epidemic going on in the US along with almost relaxing instrumentals and even dealing with death as teenager. The group recorded at Soundhouse Studio in Seattle, Washington with Mikel Perkins on production duties. Mastering was by Chris Hanzsek at Hanzsek Audio in Snohomish, Washington.
The album artwork was created by lead man Brian Christensen. The angel of death is the mascot for Hole Dug Deep especially if that Hole is 6 feet Deep!
