Although this isn't a band that I spin regularly, chances are most readers have never heard of them and I'm sure a few people will end up downloading the songs I've posted. I found out about BURY ME STANDING after following the purchase of the Madeline Ferguson split about a decade ago after reading that Madeline Ferguson sounded like Neil Perry. Twasn't the most accurate comparison. However, and lucky for me, the other side of the split (or 2nd half of the cd, in this case) was pretty sweet.

BURY ME STANDING plays intelligent thrash/hardcore with some serious toying in the metallic screamo genre. If you like heavier You And I, old The Bled (it is the same vocalist, after all - but the newer guy) and Dispensing Of False Halos then I am certain you will be downloading this band's discography after listening to the embedded tracks below. I'll talk about my 4 favourite songs and then we're done.

"Colostomy Heart" from the Man Vs Humanity split melds You And I with Dispensing Of False Halos...basically metallic screamo, with more emphasis placed on the metallic part, which also borders on Owen Hart style thrash and crusty hardcore.
(2000) BURY ME STANDING - "Colostomy Heart" (from 'Man Vs. Humanity' split)

________________________________________________________________________

"Razorwire Highway to the Promised Land" again dabbles primarily is chaotic grind/hardcore with some interesting stop and starts near the end of the song and has a bit more variety than the band's earlier work.
(2002) BURY ME STANDING - "Razorwire Highway to the Promised Land" (from 'Madeline Ferguson' split)

________________________________________________________________________

"Like Flies to Shit" is definitely a mishmash of This Ship Will Sink and The Assistant mixed with some nice emo/screamo that some facebook community elitists would probably shit their pants over until the song blasts back into high gear at the 3-minute mark.
(2002) BURY ME STANDING - "Like Flies to Shit" (from 'Madeline Ferguson' split)

Lastly, the final minute of "Dead Air" is a build to an amazing close with screaming galore over some blast breakdowns ala Black Kites and old Cave In and The Bled.
