Killswitch Engage

The four bandmembers who came together and created Killswitch Engage already had strong fan followings. Mike D'Antonio (bass) was formerly the leader and principal songwriter of Overcast, the legendary underground metal group. When Overcast split in 1998, D'Antonio sought for a year to find the right combination of players to fuse hardcore and metal with melody. During the summer of 1999, D'Antonio connected with Adam Dutkiewicz, who was the drummer for Aftershock, and Joel Stroetzel, Aftershock's guitar player. Jesse Leach, vocalist for Corrin and Nothing Stays Gold, joined on, and the foursome took the name Killswitch Engage.

Killswitch Engage made their debut by opening for In Flames on tour. The Ferret label heard and liked the combination of brutality, sophistication, and breathtaking originality that the group produced, and signed them. Ferret released Killswitch Engage's self-titled debut album in June 2000 and it immediately began capturing rave reviews. The group lays out its heavy riffs mixed with both singing and screaming vocals that cover a range from low-pitched death growls to the higher-pitched hyena screams. Stroetzel developed a guitar rhythm that gallops, and the others keep up as they combine elements of hardcore and metal in their melodies. They come on with an intensity that does not let up.

During 2001, the band recorded "Numbered Days" for WERS' Nasty Habits live CD, a compilation with bands such as God Forbid, Haste, Unearth, and Poison the Well. Also in 2001, Killswitch Engage signed with Roadrunner Records and started recording their second full album, Alive or Just Breathing, at the Zing Studio in Westfield, Massachusetts. They expanded to a five-piece with the addition of former Aftershock drummer Tom Gomes, as Dutkiewicz moved over to guitar. The album included favorites such as "Self-Revolution," "Just Barely Breathing," and a re-recorded version of "Temple from the Within." Andy Sneap was signed on to mix and master this one in his English studio. The album aimed at even more of the growling bass tone, heavier guitar crunch, and thicker/faster double bass that permeate the music of the band, and it was greeted with high praise upon its release in May 2002 (it even shot to number 37 on Billboard's Heatseeker Chart).

Tours with Soilwork and Hypocrisy finished before the band suffered a setback that June; lead singer Leach suddenly left the group, citing voice problems and personal issues. (He later went on to join metal outfit Seemless.) Breaking up was not an option, but Killswitch were still unsure of their future -- until auditioning Howard Jones that is, vocalist for local metalcore outfit Blood Has Been Shed. The band and Jones clicked immediately, and his charismatic yet menacing stage presence sealed the deal. He made his debut with the band at summer 2002's Hellfest, and the guys stayed on the road for the remainder of the year, both home and abroad, winning over skeptics along the way. Gomes exited the group following their stint on 2003's Ozzfest and he was replaced by another Blood Has Been Shed alum, drummer Justin Foley.

The End of Heartache appeared in spring 2004, debuting at number 21 on the Top 200 and even earning Killswitch a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance. Much touring followed, including acting as main support for Slayer and spots on package tours like Ozzfest and Taste of Chaos, while the band also released the DVD Set This World Ablaze in late 2005. Killswitch Engage further rocked a main stage spot at the U.K.'s Reading festival in summer 2006; all of this activity ultimately led up to the release of their fourth full-length, As Daylight Dies, that November. In 2009, Killswitch returned with a second self-titled album and found themselves jumping onto the Billboard 200. Three years later, the band announced the departure of singer Jones, who was replaced by former frontman Jesse Leach, who made his return to Killswitch on their 2013 album, Disarm the Descent. ~ Eleanor Ditzel & Corey Apar, Rovi

it is not bad though it's still average
I agree sir. it is a dame shame!
Killswitch is trash now that Howard is gone. . Damn Shame!
My last serenade!!!
circa_1986
I miss the big black teddy bear...
They sound completely different (and definitely below average) without Howard Jones.
I love killswtich and tbh honest over the years the have not disappointed me!
Anyone who says these guys arent good whether its howard or jesse singing is out of their minds and must have a terrible taste in metal.
Not even remotely good. A disgrace to the metal community. But hey, if some other people enjoy this garbage, kudos to you.
Jones voice is so distinct! Love End of a Heartache!!! !
Jesse may be a good vocalist but Howard fits them perfectly and sounds completely different than any other vocalist around.(in a good way)
You guys r still great to this day in 2014. Rock on
Howard's voice soooo powerful
I love this band. There music is freaking grand!! And I love both Jesse and Howard as lead vocalists. I know there's a huge fight going on over who's the better vocalist, but all I can say is they are both great vocalists. And in his interview Jesse admitted that he thought that Howard is a great vocalist and that he has a a lot of respect for him. So I think that the fans need to stop fighting over this. They're both great and both add to the group instead of taking away from it.
I miss Howard Jones..
My comment is to mr. Richard Holloway... thank god that after reading a mollion posts ont this band your short and sweet analogy summed up all that there is to say about the entire history of the band, the generosity it took to step down, the selfishness it takes to expect your spot to still be in tact after recording platinum project after project and look youself in the mirror with satisfaction . Thanks for dividing America even more than it already is... and thank you for pointing out this fac
This band is amazing I don't understand how there so underrated. Follows I'll follow ;)
Best metalcore band there is
I don't like how Jesse left, and then replaced Howard who had been singing with the rest of the members for so long.
One of my favorite bands
I like Jesse as the vocalist and I don't like Howard at all being the vocalist

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed by the love of your life on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will com on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
i like the band and the songs soo much i cant decide which songs is the best any opinions
B-ry I tickets to their next concert where do you live?
