Define the Great Line [Bonus DVD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Screamo/metalcore Warped Tour mainstays Underoath expand their sonic palettes on the blistering and occasionally majestic Define the Great Line, a mammoth production that exemplifies how far Christian metal has come since the days of Stryper and Bloodgood. On their third full-length release, the Florida-based rockers have found the delicate middle ground between throat-shredding grindcore and My Chemical Romance/From Autumn to Ashes-style emo-punk, utilizing the highly flexible voice of Spencer Chamberlain as a compass for both melody and cacophony. Define the Great Line is bookended by its best cuts, the rousing "In Regards to Myself" and the epic closer, "To ...

Screamo/metalcore Warped Tour mainstays Underoath expand their sonic palettes on the blistering and occasionally majestic Define the Great Line, a mammoth production that exemplifies how far Christian metal has come since the days of Stryper and Bloodgood. On their third full-length release, the Florida-based rockers have found the delicate middle ground between throat-shredding grindcore and My Chemical Romance/From Autumn to Ashes-style emo-punk, utilizing the highly flexible voice of Spencer Chamberlain as a compass for both melody and cacophony. Define the Great Line is bookended by its best cuts, the rousing "In Regards to Myself" and the epic closer, "To Whom It May Concern." Both exemplify the group's newfound confidence in the studio and introduce a real progressive bent to both the production and the overall arrangements. While Underoath explore their faith with both reverence the monastic "Salmarnir" and suspicion "There Could Be Nothing After This", something that sets them apart from the polarizing righteousness of many CCM acts, their crossover potential remains huge, as the prevailing themes of isolation, anger, introspection, and the quest for self-confidence are universal.

    Underoath takes it to the next level

    This album is amazing. Best of 06 hands down. Underoath really took it there by getting darker. Spencer's growls have become even more intense which is great. Aaron did alot more writing on this record too. Salminir is by far one of the coolest interludes, i mean how many bands get someone to speak RUSSIAN on thier album and recite Bible verses? If you really want a great record to listen too then get this album! P.S. The DVD is funny. Short, but funny
