Burning Inside  

Burning Inside is led by the esteemed Richard Christy, who has contributed to a number of respected metal acts and who is now works as none other than Howard Stern's sidekick. Much of Christy's work has been in the death metal field, and that's certainly what Burning Inside is about, the band mostly rooted in old-school Floridian death metal with the occasional technical flair. Christy himself, however, sets the band apart -- he's the star of the show here and is clearly on overdrive, with a hyperactive style that one can't help but marvel at. The rest of the band is competant (the vocals are pretty ordinary), as there is clearly something for the hardened death fan here, but the songs themselves lack distinction, with too many riffs and not enough that are memorable. As this is Christy's band, it's probably safe to classify them as inactive, if not outright disbanded.
