Lost In The Sound Of Separation
Released: Sep 2008
Label: Solid State Records
On their sixth full length, and third with Spencer Chamberlain on vox and lyrics, Christian metal trailblazers Underoath up the difficulty on their song structure and defy metalcore standards with a darker, heavier output. With the band clearly firing on all cylinders, ferocious tracks like "Emergency Broadcast: The End is Near" and "Coming Down Is Calming Down" play with time signatures, riff patterns and clean vs. screaming vocal conventions, making Underoath's influences more apparent while marking the next step in their heralded evolution.
