A florida based Christian rock band. They have been categorized into many genres such as Metalcore, Hardcore, Grindcore, Emo, Screamo. However, they mainly dabble in Metalcore/ Hardcore.Underoath formed in 1998

They're first album, Act of Depression released in 1999.
The second, Cries Of The Past released in 2000
and the third, The Changing Of Times was released in 2002.
During this time Dallas Taylor was the lead vocals/screamer. He gave the band most of it's Grindcore/ Metalcore/ Death Metal feel. Then after some presonal problems between Dallas and the other band mates he eventually left after the recording of Chaging Of Times. He is now in Maylene and the Sons of Disaster.
When The Sun Sleeps video was released on The Changing Of Times.

Underoath then replaced Dallas with Spencer Chamberlain who's first album recorded with them was They're Chasing Safety which was released in 2004.
They're Only Chasing Safety triggered a more screamo sound and Underoath had completely abandoned their Metalcore roots. They're sound had changed dramatically. The singing in screaming was about 50/50. It will probably be they're only screamo album and they're last seeing as they did not like most the work they did on that album.
It is rumored that they were mimicking Alexisonfire's sound, however this most likely is not true.
Reveinting Your Exit and It's Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door music videos were released on They're Only Chasing Safety.

In 2006, Underoath released an album called Define The Great Line. It was produced by Adam D of Killswitch Engage and Matt Goldman. It was mixed by Chris Lord-Alge. DTGL triggers more of a Metalcore sound. The members of Underoath are very much proud of the work they have done of this album alone. Most of the tracks on this album consists of screaming, roaring, growling and shrieking. There are less choruses and more breakdowns. The guitars are thrashier and louder and the drums have been sped up. Most of the album is about personal weariness concluded with seeking God at the end of the light.
Some older Underoath fans have shown much appreciation towards this album since it is closer to their older sound. It is Underoath's most recent album to date. It was certified Gold.
Writing On The Walls and In Regards To Myself were videos released on this album.You're Ever So Inviting and A Moment Suspended In Time are two other videos that will be released.
Underoath were nomiated for a Grammy on behalf of one of their music videos from DTGL/
