 The Music Is Still Great...We've Just Heard It All Before...

| | See all DisturbedChris's reviews (4)

Kse are the kind of band who maintain the same style of music with each album, which works for some but not for others. Unfortunately, kse's lyrics alone seldom vary in theme and their music hasn't either, something that they need to work on. Its still great, and fans of kse wont be disappointed from the mix of tracks available as they still contain that signature kse sound of brutal melodies and aggression.
However the downside (and it is a major one) of this album is that not only do all the tracks take exactly the same format on this new album, signalling almost no variation throughout, but they sound exactly the same to those on as daylight dies and the end of heartache. This means that the album sounds more a continuation of as daylight dies rather than a brand new album, so dont expect anything spectacular from the kse boys that we havent heard before. Plus, the harmonious voice of guitarist adam serves only as backup vocals for howard on the album, not appearing on its own every so offen like on as daylight dies to pay homage to kse's melodic side, so be prepared strictly for howard jones's domination.

Hardcore fans will possibly be happy with whats been offered here, but otherwise stick with as daylight dies.
There is nothing new this time.
Best track: Reckoning

 Newer doesn't mean better.

I personally was highly anticipated for this albums release, and I would like to share my view. My final Verdict is that for KSE i'm quite disappointed.

The Album has 3 songs that will stand out for Fans of KSE, which include - "Starting Over", "Reckoning" and "A light in a Darkened World". these songs are very well done and show that KSE are capable of making a solid album.

But the Album isn't up to the KSE standard in my personally opinion, one thing I noticed is that Howard (The Lead Singer) sounds alot different from his previous 2 albums, and for some (like myself) it will be off putting, the vocals also seem to feel forced at times. The vocals are also alot more melodic than previous iterations, the Guitars are also lighter and more melodic throughout most of the songs.

If you feel you will be able too adjust to KSE's lighter Style then see if you can Preview the Album before purchasing it. If you are new to KSE i would Highly recommend either "The End of Heartache" or "As Daylight Dies".

Killswitch Engage are indeed a great band. "Alive Or Just Breathing" was a fantastic record and they've been perfecting their trademark sound ever since its release. But in a way, that's partly the problem with this latest release. The songs on this disc, while still fun and as catchy as ever, are just too predictable and samey for my liking. Tracks like "Lost" and "Take Me Away" stand out by offering up a bit more variety, but sadly the majority of this latest offering is simply Killswitch by numbers.

For what it is the album is perfectly enjoyable, and certainly worth adding to the collection if you're a long time fan of the band, it's just a bit of a shame that we've heard it all before.

Cnt wait for this. Ive heard 'reckoning' of it and it sounds amazing. Just hope the whole album lives up to it!

This is a huge acheivement from the guys at KSE. Wonderful melodic vocals done by Howard Jones as well as his epic screaming and shouting. They have really done what they set out to do with this album by taking on a new sound similar to their original but entirely different. Still metalcore, but better ;). The new adaptation of solos and more melody prove this album to be a milestone in the world of Metal.
ONE downside to the album: It is short haha. It is only 38 minutes, but wow, an amazing 38 minutes of listening pleasure.
