Underoath - They're Only Chasing Safety

I will start by saying I liked this band better when they played black metal. I will also say that this EP is a regression from their last release, which was a regression from their last release. MY guess is they're trying to get paid, which I can't say I blame them for, if you had a chance to make more money doing something you love, then go for it. Even though their genre ( and if someone calls them screamo I'm going to lose it.) is still completely different then what they started at, they still stand worlds above the other bands similar to them. And I will stick by my opinion that the singer has a good singing voice. But my big beef is: if you're going to have clean vocals.... stop fucking screaming. That's pretty much all I have to say about this.

Hahaha@Underoath playing black metal. Having black metal elements in their music didn't make them a black metal band.

They fucking suck.

Their first 2 releases. Where were you? Oh yea probably not hoping the trend just yet.

Anyway, it's not black metal because they are xtian. That's like an oxymoron, but those 2 releases were still pretty good.

Like steve said, they never really played black metal, but the first two were solid albums
