Sometimes, a band needs to shake things up to stimulate themselves and their fans, all the while retaining the signature sonic hallmarks that have defined their sound. For their fifth album, Killswitch Engage, Massachusetts pioneers Killswitch Engage took calculated risks and traversed a different route, going outside their comfort zones. The choice yielded impressive, incredible results. None ... Read more in Amazon's Killswitch Engage Store

5.0 out of 5 stars So relieved. 29 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
So, i've had a sneaky listen of the album and I was so glad with the final product. Now being a huge fan I was concerned that through time the band would conform, like a whole heap of other bands, and 'go pop'. However, Killswitch have retained their integrity and produced an album that is inspiring and memorable. I am a big fan of riff driven songs, and decent breakdowns that get my heart beating and head banging. Killswitch deleiver the goods with stand out tracks such as first single 'My Curse', 'For You', 'Break the Silence', 'Through the Eye of the Storm' and 'This is Absolution'. Howard Jones's vocals are just incredible, with breathtaking versatility, the guitars are as always technical and heavy, with a hint of ambience at times. Justin Foley nails the drums as if he were powered by some kind of machine. One pleasent suprise was to hear a lot more of Adam D singing on certain tracks, a great set of chords right there if I don't say so myself! All in all superb!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Solid Effort 26 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
Whilst it may not be the biggest compliment, there is some truth in the fact that Killswitch Engage are the acceptable face of metalcore; heavy enough, melodic enough and, if this genre is your thing, easily accessible.

'As Daylight Dies' sees the band putting in a heavier performance than we last saw on 2004's 'The End Of Heartache', and this is evident from opener 'Daylight Dies', with its simple, hulking but effective verse riff. It feels more muscular than its predecessor, and thats further backed up through songs like 'Still Beats Your Name' with its fast and desperate delivery. And the band's single writing ability doesnt seem to have been dampened with age with 'My Curse'; yet another contagiously catchy tune. Elsewhere, 'Desperate Times' provides a welcome change of (snail) pace, and intense album closer 'Reject Yourself' might just be the best song the band have done.

I cant claim to subscribe to the 5 star rated views of everyone else here, because 'Alive Or Just Breathing' will probably remain this band's high point. But the return to a harder edge and heavier sound are still very welcome here, and Killswitch have again done what they do best; write a solid, consistent and impressive metalcore album with every tick box from breakdowns to breakups covered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoah Nelly! 30 Nov 2006
By Nic
Format:Audio CD
If you don't have this album you should buy it immediately! Straight from the get go Killswitch unleash a fury of guitars and heavy beats into your aural passages. There is nothing, i repeat nothing that i can pick about this album that i don't like. First single "My Curse" is a fantastic pick to give you the general gist of the album. From the first time i heard Killswitch back in the day with "My Last Serenade" i was hooked. When Jessie Leach quit the band in a hurry i did not know how Howard Jones would replace such a talent. What Howard brought to the band increased their power ten fold. Jones has an unmatched vocal ability and Joel Stroetzel (lead guitar) has even been said to "channel God through his fingers". I believe that not only are they a step ahead of the rest of the Metal bands around these days but are one of the most powerful and influential Metal bands of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Killswitch Album By Far! 23 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
So i was so excited about this album when i bought it, recieved it and put it straight in to the cd player and sat back and listened. If i hadn't sat back this album would have pushed me back! its that good.

I would love to know how killswitch made this album as it is so much heavier but still keeps all the great melodic breakdowns that we have all grown to love. for instance the song 'my curse' has some of the heaviest parts of killswitch ive heard but then goes real melodic during the chorus and this is followed throughout the album and it all flows so well.

So, Is it worth buying?

Yes, this is THE album of the year! songs such as 'This is Absolution' and 'Arms of Sorrow' will define Killswitch forever, these two tracks are possibly the best Metal/Metalcore songs ever written. Fact. Don't take my word for it,

Buy it and hear it for

5.0 out of 5 stars As Daylight Dies, Killswitch Will Rise! 9 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
Killswitch Engage, go into there fourth studio album, with a lot of promise. After the huge success of 'End Of Heartache', KsE were bound to come up with something good, and they certainly did.

'As Daylight Dies' starts off with the title track, Daylight Dies, which starts off slow, but straight away you can tell, that they have grown again. Each album getting stronger, in riffs and vocals. Howard Jones vocals are more melodic, but still as heavy on the screaming. The riffs more technical, and the songs just as infectious. This is proved no more when the second song kicks in straight after the first. 'This is Absolution' is one of my favourites, this is because it has everything, technical guitar work, fast drums, brilliant singing and hard hitting bass.

The first single from this album, 'My Curse', is a good choice, as it appeals to all rock fans, moshing away will be easy to do, and so will just listening to it in your room. And with the second single 'Arms Of Sorrow' similar, KsE are on a winner with this album.

With a sell out tour started, KsE's set list will be even stronger, and the gigs even better. If you have a ticket, get ready for the show of your lives. Three major albums worth of songs, a cover of Dio's Holy Diver, what more can you need. KsE are coming to take over the metalcore world, look out Shadows Fall, the KsE boys are here to kick some ass!
