This album may be in the top five albums of the year! The vocalist Jesse Leach can scream hardcore style, metal style or sing very well. The guitarists are both very good and pull out some sick riffs. Sadly Leach is no longer with the band, but he has been replaced by Howard Jones the former singer of the New England hardcore band Blood Has Been Shead. Howard will be playing with the band on the Ozzfest Second Stage which also features heavier bands like Cradle of Filth, Shadows Fall (great band) and Voivod. My personal favorite tracks are Fixation on the Darknness, Last Sarenade, Life to Lifeless, Just Barely Breahting, To the Sons of Man and The Element of One. This is definatly an album to check out, espicially to one who is just getting into heavier music. If you like Killswitch Engage I would also suggest checking out Shadows Fall, Chimaira, Superjoint Ritual or Lamb of God. Keep making sick metal!
