The best kept secret in music


"Wieght of the world"

It's not what you think. If you've seen Buried's name splashed around nightclub listings and promo posters, you might have thought the band was a little sinister, in that Cannibal Corpse vein. Yes, the band is intense, but you won't be hearing any death metal at a Buried show. Buried is a state of mind. "That's just the way we felt, you know, trying to live a normal life... and build a professional band after a 10-hour workday," says lead singer/guitarist Derek McAdow. "It's just the feeling you get when you open your mailbox, and there are more bills than checks. It's like most people in life,"You Feel Buried. You just go on. You get an attitude, and you suck it up, and you do what you gotta do."

The founding members of Buried are Derek McAdow and drummer Scott Nelson they have been doing what they gotta do for nearly seven years now. But though they persevered for five years, recording the CD (By Will Alone) along the way, they say the band didn't really come together until they found new bassist BoB Nation.

"When you're looking for a band mate, you're looking for more than just somebody to play the bass," McAdow says. "The camaraderie, the willingness to invest his time equally, and his money... He came in and matched our effort, and it really just changed the band."

Now, with a new CD schedule for release in January, the members of the band say their music is more mature and professional than it's ever been. What can audience members expect from a Buried show? "It's like a muscular performance," McAdow says. "It's like a muscle, like a flex, a one hour flex. It's pretty powerful." but don't mistake Buried's intensity for anger, McAdow says, recalling one audience member's reaction to a recent show: "At the end of the night, I got off stage, and this girl comes up to me and goes, 'Man, you're really hostile.' And I go, 'What, you didn't hear my baby song?" (That's baby Dylan, McAdow's 2-week-old son, who interrupted daddy's interview with a few powerful wails of his own.)

Despite their somewhat despondent name, it's evident that the members of Buried take adversity in stride. Just ask them what it was like to record their new CD this summer, McAdow played guitar with a 4-inch gash in his arm and laid down the vocal tracks during the Martis Fire, arguably the most lung capacity-challenging event of the year. "There's an engineer, two band members and 70 bucks an hour going down the drain for every mistake you make," McAdow says. "It's a tense situation."

But while other bands fall apart in the studio, and that's without fire and flu and flesh wounds, the members of Buried say that they just emerged stronger for the experience. They plan to take the next couple of weeks off to finish pre-production on the CD, but they'll be back in full force on New Year's Eve. In the meantime, they're waiting for news of their own Christmas gift: Buried's music is being test-marketed for a label as they speak, and the word on how they "scored" is due back any day now. But McAdow says even if they don't score well, they won't give up until they're well, dead and buried. Until we've been pounded into the ground, literally, an then we'll probably try one more effort."

"Who Was That Band?"

Buried was formed in a studio in Reno, Nevada. It might as well have been a laboratory for music, with master chemist, Derek McAdow, inventing his sound that would electrify Reno. First add one part Derek McAdow guitarist, lead- vocalist) Then two parts Bob Nation (bass, vocals) and then three parts Scott Nelson (drummer, vocals). Then sit back and enjoy the show, that is if you can sit through a show, their music is electrifying, explosive, powerful muscle music. After a show you feel like you just had an awesome workout, and their tunes are running through your head the next day.

The newly released CD "Am I Dirty" has people who have never seen or heard of Buried, saying, "Who was that band? - Musicians Corner

Feeling a bit camera shy


Passionate vocals. Deep and heavy rhythm pocket. Driving guitar.Tighter than Tattoo's fist. All of these describe Buried. Fusing hard rock with radio ready melodies, Buried captures audiences with hard-edged: accessible music delivered by three eminently talented and cohesive players. Buried is Derek McAdow (lead vocal, guitar) Bob Nation(bass, backing vocal) and Scott Nelson (drums, backing vocal). Drawing favorable comparisons to their influences from Audioslave to Alice In Chains to King's X to the Cult, Buried's power hooks push the envelope even more.

Although the tiny town of Gardnerville, Nevada is hardly the type of place expected to produce as powerful a songwriter, singer and guitar player as Derek, growing up at the eastern base of the Sierra Nevadas and influenced by his musical heroes. Derek had a lot of time to hone his chops. Scott hails from Los Angeles, where he misspent his childhood pounding out beats on his mother's kitchen gear.

Buried has opened for such artist as Saliva, L.A. Guns, Andrew W. K., Theory of a Deadman, Chevelle, Ill Nino, 3rd Strike, Seether, Craving Theo, and Type O Negative, and was the only local indy band to be selected to play at Northern Nevada KDOT Radio's Dotfest.

Buried's new release "Am I Dirty?" captures on CD the band's sonic ear candy. As the Reno Gazette-Journal's review of "Am I Dirty?" put it, "Buried has a talent for melodic yet aggressive hard rock. For example, "I Wanna Sleep With You" nicely switches between a grinding heavy bottom end and flirtation with punk, all the while staying catchy."

The good news is that now you don't have to wait until you're six feet under to get BURIED.
