Cries of the Past is the second album by Underoath, released on July 4, 2000 through Takehold Records. Only 3,000 copies of the album were pressed, and, like Act of Depression, it is currently out of print. The album is the last to feature guitarist Corey Steger and is the first to include keyboardist, Christopher Dudley.


Musical content and style

The second and third song are out of order from the list on the jacket, with "Giving Up Hurts the Most" as the actual second track. The song "And I Dreamt of You" is Underoath's longest recorded song, clocking in at 11 minutes and 24 seconds. One of the most notorious things about the album is its length; there are only five songs, but reaches 42:08 in time length, with the shortest song on the album being "Giving Up Hurts The Most" (7:36).

Being the first album to feature Christopher Dudley, it is the first Underoath album to include keyboard effects. The album acquires a similar sound to Act of Depression, however, features even more of a black metal influence.[2][3]
