Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
If you read this blog you know I love hardcore. When I discovered hardcore in the 8th grade, it changed my life. I love hardcore so much that this top ten list will actually be two list; my favorite christian hardcore albums and then next week will be my favorite non christian hardcore albums. I’m also going with hardcore/metalcore because some albums (especially next week) don’t fall under the “hardcore” banner. Enjoy.
10. Underoath – Define the Great Line
Define The Great Line isn’t really a return to greatness for Underoath, but a realization of potential. The death metal band had transformed itself into emo Warp Tour darlings. Define the Great Line reestablished the band firmly a top the modern metalcore ranks. Underoath reemerged as a heavy band. Gone was the pop sensibilities that had been on They”re Only Chasing Safety. Define the Great Line has pound for pound, some of the catchiest hooks and melodies in metalcore while still remaining a heavy album. The bands best album.
