Underoath: 777 [DVD]
Release Date: July 17, 2007
This DVD has everything a normal music DVD has: a documentary, a live show, and music videos. This is a good DVD overall for the band and gives them a good image. It's also a great thing for a fan to pick up to enjoy until the band's next album.

Sound: Underoath is one of those bands you either love or hate music-wise. Their sound combines the screaming vocals of Spencer Chamberlain with the softer vocals of their drummer, Aaron Gillespie, with the overall hard thrashing guitars of Tim McTague and James Smith, the bass of Grant Brandell, and the head banging keyboards of Christopher Dudley. The overall sound from this band can be best described as a train wreck (but in a good way). The band's sound tends to be like a train wreck in the sense that one minute it's soft and it carries itself in a light manner, but suddenly it breaks down into a hardcore screaming breakdown. The music tends to do this in all their recent albums. The band can be best described as Christian metalcore or post-hardcore. The band's lyrics generally have an underlying Christian tone to them, but the sound of the music itself seems to differ that with heavy riffs and loud screams. // 9

Overall Impression: Overall, this DVD has tons for Underoath fans to embrace until the next album. If you are a fan of the band's videos or live shows you will love this DVD regardless of the documentary. I honestly think the documentary is the only down point in this DVD, but it is still very well done. If you have yet to hear anything from this band, but would like a general taste, I would also recommend this DVD to you to show what the band is all about. Just pick it up if you think you need a dose of Underoath playing on your TV every once in awhile. // 8
