Floridian metalcore merchants unleash the beast...

Well holy fucking shit, Underøath’s seventh full-length is a quite stunning album. With Spencer Chamberlain taking sole singing duties since the departure of clean vocalist / drummer Aaron Gillespie, and ex-Norma Jean sticksman Daniel Davison behind the kit, it’s a master-class in compelling, ambitious heavy music from the Floridians. To fans it’ll undoubtedly shine as their best record yet, while the uninitiated may be about to find their new favourite band. Right from the fleeting electronica openings of ‘In Division’ through to closer ‘In Conclusion’, it’s an irresistible, insatiable assault that perfectly balances belligerent metallic punk causticity with utterly enveloping, atmospheric soundscapes and outstanding musicianship.
