Define The Great Line (Limited Edition) (Includes DVD)

About this item

(Limited special edition features: special packaging with exclusive artwork, plus a bonus DVD with behind-the-scenes, in the studio, making-of footage, and more!)

When it comes to hardcore metal, the scene in Florida is among the most scathing and ambitious. And the best in Florida is Underoath. The Tampa sextet has an original sound, and integrity that runs as deep as a well is dark.

Riding the wake of their breakthrough success of 2004's They're Only Chasing Safety, the Warped Tour veterans declined offers to join a major label and decided to stick with Seattle-based Christian independent label Tooth & Nail to crystallize their vision. Flying in the face of most bands, Underoath is getting heavier, not pop-laden as they grow.

Define the Great Line offers listeners a catharsis -- no doubt the rage channeled by frontman Spencer Chamberlain is awesome -- in the original sense of the word. But taking in the whole album in a single listen is also meditative, strangely, and not just thanks to the afterglow of some emotional release -- it makes the listener hum: to vibrate warmly as if placed precariously on the edge of the mystic.

That's because Underoath's music is primal and ethereal; bridging the core animal in us with the soul that is the divine in us; or at least a sense of possibility that the divine is out there somewhere to be realized, understood.

"Writing on the Walls" is the debut single. The track teeters unsettled on its shifting foundation, threatening to completely fall into chaos until a groove materializes minutes later. When the track first opens, Chamberlain sounds like a sweet, everyday young man before turning into a werewolf a few bars later, and then a demon and back again on the hook, which sets the song's long-awaited rhythm just before it lulls into a perfectly apropos chant of sorts. Then, finally, another dose of tortured vocals snaps us out of our hypnotic reveries, and the song ends with trailing feedback. Amazing.

Underoath sets itself apart further with cuts like "Casting Such A Thin Shadow," which is a tense, yet atmospheric instrumental. That is until nearly four minutes into it when multi-tracked Chamberlain vox cuts angstily through the mist of compressed guitars.

The band's fearless musicianship is also on display with "Moving For The Sake of Motion." And their guttural ferocity, which always threatens to explode at any moment, is front and center on tracks like "Everyone Looks So Good From Here," where Chamberlain sings words like, "Flip my world inside out/ Honestly, I like it better this way...I can finally walk through the walls..."

Define the Great Line is an album not just for Christians, or metalcore fans...but for seekers.

It would be nice if the person who reviewed the album on this site actually paid attention to the line up of the band. Underoath has two vocalist. Spencer handles the screaming, and drummer Aaron Gillespie handles the singing parts. Define is an album (like all underoath albums) that needs to be listened all the way through...don't skip over certain songs. Each song feeds into the other to creat an amazing listening experience. There is no weak song on this album, each one can stand on its own. If you like heavy music but aren't always wanting to hear screaming, then Underoath is the band for you.
