The Hamburg-based death metal band BURIED IN BLACK was founded in early 2008 by Ben Liepelt (ex Mad Doggin) and Ron Brunke (ex Nayled). The Band got completed in the following months by Torsten Eggert (ex Dark Age), Sören Teckenburg and Etienne Belmar (ex Undercroft / Lobotomy).
During the first song-writing process BURIED IN BLACK used the time to combine the strengths of their members. "We all come out of differently oriented metal bands. This variety of facets, combined with the influences of the old death metal grandmasters, have formed our sound”, says vocalist Ron Brunke.
