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.

Can't wait to hear this. I don't have a problem with the scream/sing combo. Killswitch pulls it off fine.

Man all this "they just wanna make money". Wouldn't you want to doing something you love doing? Plus bands like this don't make much money so they need all the bucks they can get. And this whole Chritsian Black Metal thing, it shouldn't fuckin' exist. The word "Black" in Black Metal describes that fact that it's overly fuckin evil and apocalyptic, like "Black" Magic, and the "Black" Arts. If youre gonna sing about Jesus, God or peace, u gotta sing about destroying it. That's what Power Metal is for, slaying dragons and demons and shit. And bands like Burzum, Bathory, Cradle, Dimmu, Marduk, are the dragons and demons trying to destroy peace.
