Underoath recently previewed some new music for an MTV reporter. The reporter said, “The six songs we heard were, for the most part, furiously paced, with lots of layers and almost Nine Inch Nails-esque spooky electronic effects. Several of the songs were anthemic, feedback-filled numbers that build slowly to their thunderous, ear-splitting crescendos, and there were breakdowns aplenty.”
“Chamberlain’s vocals are intense, passionate and sounding better than ever over the shredding guitars. Aaron Gillespie’s adroit drum-pummeling adds even more fury and force to the tracks, which are sprinkled with blistering, steely guitar solos. The songs — which, at times, stop and start on a dime effortlessly — sounded huge and unpredictable, never really heading in those directions you might expect. It’s also clear that the band wanted to experiment this time around, injecting almost prog-like elements here and there. “
