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.

you know what, these guys are really cool people and they do what they love. many people are hating them because they are a christian band and it's "cool" to worship satan. yeah, they may have changed their music style and disappointed many hardcore fans, but when was the last time you got a record deal and landed a spot on mtv?

WTF, King Diamond is not black metal at all.

I know, but the way he dresses looks black metal

A lot of people don't like worshipping anything. They think that both Jesus and Satan are bad. Just becuase they hate Jesus doesn't mean they love Satan
too cool for RECES

Their first 2 eps were so good. The newer stuff is so different but they still are ok.

the only song ive heard off this is the young and aspiring, and it's not that bad, but it's definitly not as good as their older more metal stuff
