Overview

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 is one of those bands I like that mixes screams and beautiful voices. With out of control guitars and beats bound to have you tapping your foot the second each song plays, the band gives out a warming message to all those lost trying to find themselves.

Enough of the emocore of the last album. This album is much more in your face, much louder, much grittier, much...better. At some points throughout the album I felt an odd vibe of old Project 86 and Blindside with a dash of Extol. It brought me back to my roots. Although all the songs are really well put together and written, none really stick out. Although if you need that extra oomph to go with your morning coffee, she'll do the trick.

This is one of among several of the greatest albums I have in my collection. It's good and in your face, but also, at times, it is very experimentally mellow & creative. Underoath is a great band, and if you're into hardcore/experimental/rock stuff, I would definitely suggest giving this CD a shot...and be sure to listen to it all the way through. It's amazing!

Define The Great Line is an amazing cd. It's so heavy, yet so melodic. It's so dark, yet it also shines a radiant light on life. I loved "They're Only Chasing Safety", but this one is even better. Spencer's scream is deeper than it was in their previous album, the scream is reminiscent of his scream when he was with his old band This Runs Through. Underoath have truly outdone themselves with this one, and I long for their next record, which I'm sure will not disappoint.

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

this new album of theirs takes right back to the rawness that they had from the beggining and just brought even more onto the plate along with that. i advise anyone and everyone who is new to the hardcore scene to listen to this album first above all the rest, then go their beggining albums and then up from there. i do feel a hint of norma jean and their main influence for o'god, Botch in the songs here and there randomly within the songs. but i do have one question about this band though: what the heck happened to tim? he cut his hair and shaved his beard completely? that seems like a little too much for me.

If you never heard of Underaoth before, and you were forced to listen to one of thier songs, you would never guess that they were a Christian band. On Define the Great line, the band goes back to the emo-core elements of thier first two albums. The result is still spectacular. The guitar work has improved for the most part, and the singer's tortured screams are still very well there and intact. If you are a fan of emo and/or screamo, give this album a try and pick it up immediately.
