Added DiffLines:

* MythArc: The ''Parallax'' storyline, which started long before the actual ''Parallax'' albums came out. Depending on your interpretation of the meanings of some songs, it may have started as far back as the ''The Silent Circus'', but it was definitely underway by the time of ''The Great Misdirect'', which really kicks the story off with "Swim to the Moon".


Added DiffLines:

* OminousOwl: The Night Owls, of course. They're an AncientConspiracy of alien robots who apparently destroy planets for fun.


Added DiffLines:

* PrecisionFStrike: In "Silent Flight Parliament", from the album's BigBad no less.
--> '''"FUCKING WEAKLINGS!"'''

* GenreRoulette: There's no telling what genres a given song of theirs will dip into. Two of the most famous examples are the polka break in "Prequel to the Sequel" and the hoedown in "Ants of the Sky".

Two of the most famous examples are the polka break in "Prequel to the Sequel" and the hoedown in "Ants of the Sky". ''The Anatomy Of'' is also a particularly noteworthy example because the band covers songs from a wide variety of genres and stays largely faithful to the original arrangements (some songs that didn't have HarshVocals in the original versions do in BTBAM's versions, though).

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Avoided this with what was mostly a consistently metallic sound for the first three albums (with exceptions here and there), but from ''Colors'' onwards most songs dabble in genres ranging from jazz to polka to progressive rock, with frequent juxtaposition of loud/heavy elements and softer, quieter elements. Even before this, they still would mix and match metal genres to a certain extent (for example, there are segments of ''Alaska'' that resemble BlackMetal), and there were {{Subdued Section}}s that sat outside of metal genres entirely.

Between The Buried And Me are a ProgressiveDeathMetal / {{Metalcore}} band from North Carolina. While their early sound was primarily that of a contemporary death metal band, their output became increasingly multidimensional with time until the landmark album ''Colors'' introduced their now-trademark eclectic sound and complex songwriting.

Added DiffLines:

* SubduedSection: Practically [[OnceAnEpisode Once a Song]] on recent releases. Earlier releases had these sometimes as well. Some famous early examples are the "It's raining" part of "Backwards Marathon", the ending of "Shevanel Cut a Flip", and the second half of "Mordecai".

* HotterAndSexier[=/=]SexSells: "Camilla Rhodes" is about the tendency of the music industry to use these tropes. The band aren't too thrilled with it.

Added DiffLines:

* IndecipherableLyrics: Par for the course when a band uses HarshVocals, though it's arguably somewhat more pronounced on the old material. Rogers' clean singing is usually enunciated clearly, though.

* HeavyMeta: "White Walls" was an examination of who they were as a band at the time and stated their desire to break out of the metalcore genre and escape being pigeonholed. "Ad a dglgmut" is a dedication to "noise", which per WordOfGod can include anything in nature, as well as heavy music, which can seem like noise to the uninitiated but can become beautiful after enough listening. "Aesthetic" is about the musicians on the ''Titanic'', who kept playing as the ship sunk; Tommy Giles Rogers has commented that he can't think of a more profound dedication to music.
