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.

And I understand that they were once black metal influenced hardcore, but that doesn't make them black metal. It's too bad they didn't continue with "Cries Of The Past", it was quite good for how horrible this band has become.

I like how most of the people posting in this thread joined just to bitch about the negative review.
