Buried Inside, formed in 1997, is a band from Ottawa, Canada. They are influenced by early metalcore and hardcore punk bands such as Acme, One Eyed God Prophecy, and Union of Uranus. Their sound includes distorted vocals, creatively-timed drumming, heavy use of octave double stops which creates a very melodic effect and occasional sampling of gloomy film dialogue or instruments like the cello. Their lyrics mostly deal with themes of time and how it regulates and enslaves people. In 2005, They signed to Relapse Records and put out their "concept" album, Chronoclast.
In March 2009 they released a new album titled Spoils of Failure.
