One of the most promising bands of the American new wave of thrash (understand one of the leaders of the US nu-thrash scene) is back with a highly expected follow-up to their great debut Alive Or Just Breathing. Meanwhile, two years and a singer have gone, Howard Jones has settled down as the band's frontman, written the lyrics for the whole album, and shown some extended vocal abilities, Killswitch Engage has toured intensively across the United States, and also a bit everywhere else with their companions of Lamb Of God, Chimaira, Hatebreed, Shadows Fall and co. Has this quick elevation changed something in the good sense, or have they lost their mind? Have they kept a heavy direction, or have they decided to capitalize on the commercial success of nu-metal bands all over the world and sold their soul for the sake of broadcasting?

  End of Heartache<3 Best Song on the album on my opinion.

Rating: 8 I guess I'm nostalgic lately. I remember this was the first metalcore album I listened to.

I've been playing "The End Of Heartache" nonstop lately and remembering that time when I was like 17 or 18. Either way, this is a great song and great album and it allowed me to discover other things.

I also have good memories of this record. I'm sure If I heard it today for the first time it would get a very different score. but you can't fight nostalgia.

Do you think people who listen to it now for the first time find it shitty? I think it's an album that ages well. I didn't even noticed Andy Sneap & Philip Labonte participated on the song until now lol
