Underoath at Irving Plaza

Heavy metal music has moved in so many directions that it has become difficult to find defining categories for many of the bands. Underoath (stylized as Underøath) from Tampa, Florida, is among the leaders of a progressive metalcore scene that includes The Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying and August Burns Red. On two sold out nights at Irving Plaza, current lead singer Spencer Chamberlain both growled and screeched as the band shredded some of the heaviest and fastest music around. With no original members left in the band, Chamberlain announced that this was the popular group's final tour before breaking up.
