Killswitch Engage belongs to this wave of young bands that don't play in one definite style. You can call them nu-death, but it would not be fair enough. Maybe melodic nu-thrash would be closer to reality. This American band takes its inspiration everywhere, and succeeds in extracting the best essence of all metal styles. Mix grated hardcore vocals, headbanging nu-metal riffs (I can't help becoming crazy on "Numbered Days"), thrash tracks' structure and melodic death fury, shake it all and you get Killswitch Engage.

  When I listened to the song Just Barely Breathing, I was stunned. It's Awesome!! I just love album... this is one of the best albums I have and just can't stop listening to it.

I wasn't expecting a great comeback from these guys. They really stunned me.

  Just Barely Breathing has one of the coolest riffs in the metalcore genre, and I love the chorus in My Last Serenade.

An undisputed classic album in metalcore.

Don't forget Self Revolution...

"Slow down this fast paced world and you will see the REEEEEVOOOOOOOOLUUUUUUUUUUUTIOOOOOOOOOOON
For a new movement"

That was the moment when I became a Jesse fan .

Indeed. I was actually a huge fan before the very first song ended though.

Rating: 4 It sounds ok up to the point where the [supreme MS censorship prevailing over lesser users] whiny pop singing kicks in.

The only song where the [supreme MS censorship prevailing over lesser users], whiny pop singing works IMO is My Last Serenade.
