Once upon a time, metalcore band Underoath were an outfit trying to gain traction in the underground. While 2002’s The Changing Of Times shed many of their previous black and even death metal influences for something much more accessible, the departure of vocalist Dallas Taylor certainly left a void for the young band. Luckily, Spencer Chamberlain joined shortly after, and the rest is history.
However, a new demo version of “Reinventing Your Exit” from 2003 has surfaced, and notably, it features the vocals of Dallas Taylor – shortly before the band parted ways (and Taylor formed Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster). Entitled “Heatherwood”, the demo surfaced online just this morning, so it’s interesting to compare the vocalists – who were both quite young at the time. Also, the band will be performing this song – and others – on a livestream tonight. They’re Only Chasing Safety in full. Don’t miss out.
