...eh

Okay, im an old school killswitch fan, nothing has topped AOJB but i still love jones' vocals. Few can deny that killswitch has strayed further and further into more of a mainstream sound, and that is exactly what you will find here. None of Jones signnature 10 sec yells, no real headbang moments, very structure-esque songs (death vocal link to clean corus to death link to clean corus to solo, etc.) on a lighter note less emo-rific lyrics, many song sound like Leaches enigmatic constructions. There are some solid tracks definitly and this is a solid release from KSE, but it is definitly there least METAL release thus far. im sure people are going to argue band evolution BS like they always do but killswitch, IMO, has forgotten its roots.

New album eh?

Where do i even begin...i just got finished listening to an album ive been anticipating since 2006 and im a lil more than disappointed. Kse really changed alot here. I know some fans wanted that, but one thing I really missed was the gorgeous and almost dreamy choruses from As Daylight Dies and the ballsy-ness from End Of Heartache. This album has its sung choruses and a few ballsy riffs here and there, but something just doesnt feel right. It could be because adam did not directly produce this album and some other dude did the main work. Also where the hell is Adams background singing? That is signature kse and makes the song complete! His voice is too good to not include him. Also howard sounds like a pubescent teenager crying on this album, im one of the biggest howard fans ever but his voice changed ALOT. I threw on my headphones and plugge in my iphone as soon as the clock hit 12 so i could hop on itunes and buy it asap. Now im
Bummed.

Sick as always.

Their sound may have matured but they are still the best in the genre. I feel sorry for any fans that refuse to grow along with them.
