Latest News Item: Colorado’s Buried Realm Shares Guitar Playthrough “Embodiment of The Divine”; Sophomore Album “Embodiment of The Divine” Out July 24th 

Quick info:
A true visionary is a rare thing, but such a man is Josh Dummer exemplified in his solo studio project Buried Realm. Influenced by personal experience and executed through metaphors, the progressive and heavy metal leaves room for interpretation and paints an interesting picture for listeners.  
Following up on his long time idea of releasing a solo album, he seized the chance with his first offering “Ichor Carcinoma”. Released in 2017 it features guests such as Christopher Amott (Arch Enemy, Armageddon), Peter Wichers (Soilwork), Teemu Mäntysaari (Wintersun) and Travis Montgomery (Threat Signal, Jeff Loomis band).

Inspired by Opeth, Kreator, Old Man’s Child, Symphony X (and tons of old Hair Metal!), Dummer is a man who is not afraid to gaze into the abyss for music and lyrical inspiration. He describes Buried Realm’s music as ‘fierce, cutting, technical, melodic, and memorable.’ The studio project represents a hidden dimension within himself where the ‘buried disputes’ of his life are confronted only through music; where he can express musical ideas without compromising.

The next chapter in Dummer’s journey is 2020’s “Embodiment of the Divine” due out July 24th and while it is parallel to the first, both musically and lyrically, it is a forward step in a sojourn that will be continuing.

“After nearly three years of creating ‘Embodiment of the Divine,’ I am very pleased to present and share this album with everyone. I’m honored to be joined by a number of guests that have influenced my writing and playing over the years. Their contributions have truly helped bring the album to another level. ‘Embodiment of the Divine’ features guest performances from Andy Gillion, Benjamin Ellis, Bob Katsionis, Dean Arnold, Lee McKinney, Peter Wichers, Rafael Trujillo, and Ryan Strain.” 
says Dummer.

What the press has said:
"Featuring guest musicians from bands like Born Of Osiris and past members of Soilwork and Obscura, this album has some beautiful instrumental work that hits hard. Despite there being so many guests, Josh Dummer is the mastermind behind the band and everything is his vision. The instrumentation is a huge highlight for me on Embodiment Of The Divine. Tracks like “Infinite Mutation” really show off the abilities of Dummer and everyone involved. The track is seven-and-a-half minutes long, and it fits in everything from beautiful solos and guitar melodies to really stand out bass parts to blast beats galore." - Skulls N Bones

"This song (The Wonder and Terror of Fortune) we’re presenting today includes guest contributions by Rafael Trujillo (ex-Obscura) and Ryan Strain (Chaos For The Masses). It’s a galloping high-voltage thrill-ride of pulse-pounding riffs and scintillating leads that swirl and soar. The roaring, screaming, and singing vocals are just as exhilarating as the music. Everything is on fire, channeling an unmistakable ebullience, which reaches its zenith in a spectacular extended guitar solo. The fast-punching grooves in the song are a match for the ecstatic energy of everything else. One listen, and you can tell why this track was chosen as the album closer — it sends the listener out on an enormous high." - No Clean Singing
