4.0 out of 5 stars Killswitch Engage, 13 April 2006
This review is from: The End Of Heartache (Audio CD)
This is Killswitch Engage's third album, but their first with vocalist Howard Jones; who replaced Jesse Leach in 2003. The album itself it absolutely superb. Real Metal at it's best, with heavy grungey guitars, acompanied Bass, and fast drumming. However, Killswitch Engage show a very melodic feel to their music. Even the super heavy start of 'When Darkness Falls' has it's area of "singing"; most songs beginning with rage, but entering an emotional chorus or bridge.

The guitar work is truly superb. Tight playing, and well written riffs. The drumming is also very good, the double bass drum being used on many occasions. But the vocals, people may differ in oppinion on this subject. Jesse was an absolutely fantastic front man. With his rageing screams and growls, and his emotional singing, he really was the best "Heavy Metal" could offer. Howard Jones is also very good in his own way, and I think the veteran Killswitch Engage fans are the ones who dislike him. I personally prefer Jesse, but I know many who prefer Howard Jones, I guess it's all just down to personal taste.

I think the album is absolutely fantastic, and Killswitch remain my no.1 favourite metal band. Stand out tracks like 'A Bid Farewell', 'When Darkness Falls', 'Rose Of Sharyn', 'The End of Heartache', and 'World Ablaze', really show off their musical talent, and I would seriously recommend this album to anyone who likes Metal with an Emo backing.
