Product Description

With their fourth album, 'As Daylight Dies', Killswitch Engage are proving that if you keep playing the game your way, you'll eventually change the rules for everyone else. 'As Daylight Dies' isn't just a testament to the band's original vision; it's also their strongest fusion of aggression, melody, rock and metal to date.

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!

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.

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.

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

yourself!!!!!

The Massachusetts based Killswitch Engage are one of the best loved Metalcore bands out there at the moment. Its not difficult to see why, with the gigantic riffs, the interesting lyrics and the absolutely fantastic vocals. Howard Jones quite simply has one of the best voices in metal, an absolutely majestic singing voice and all the furious bark and shout you would expect for the heavy sections. The integration of Howard's outstanding vocals into the band's perfect light and shade formula make Killswitch Engage one of the most vital and important bands out there.
Even on first listen this album grabbed me, straight away I knew it was amazing and every time you replay it, the music washes over you from beginning to end. The band's last three albums, were genuinely brilliant and this is no exception, with a real step up in musicianship and songwriting.
The guitars have never been this fast or technical and the drums are even more powerful and authoritative than before. The band just seem to have kicked up a gear as musicians each seeming to have a more complete mastery of their instrument than on any previous album. The vocals have similarly never sounded better with the vocals on the songs `Arms of Sorrow,' and `This is Absolution,' being career highlights. This also includes Adam D's superb backing vocals which are simply incredible cementing many sections as standout moments.
The sound on the album is all incredibly good, nicely complimenting a good set of very well written songs.
Standout tracks include the previously mentioned songs `The Arms of Sorrow,' and `This is Absolution,' which so perfectly encapsulate all that Killswitch do well; heavy in just the right ways, anthemic in the choruses and full of catchy staccato rhythms .
