Over the course of nearly 20 years, North Carolina's Between the Buried and Me have challenged fans. Since the technical thrashing on their 2002 self-titled debut, stylistic shifts, panoramic production aesthetics, and musical evolution have succeeded in placing them alongside Opeth, Dream Theater, and Symphony X as prog metal innovators. Automata I is the first volume in a two-part concept album; the second followed a few months later.
