I first got into Killswitch after hearing “When Darkness Falls” and buying their second album, “Alive Or Just Breathing”. It was a great CD and had many good songs. However, “When Darkness Falls” was on a soundtrack and had a new vocalist and I couldn’t wait to hear the new CD. Finally when it came out, the verdict was in. This album is something else entirely. This album is a modern masterpiece.
From the opening of “A Bid Farewell” to the very end, this album is awesome. Highlights are “Rose Of Sharyn”, “When Darkness Falls”, “A Bid Farewell”, “Take This Oath”, “Breathe Life”, and the excellent title track. There isn’t one bad song on the disc, though. This is one of those albums that once you hear it, you know it’s something really special. New vocalist Howard Jones has a deep, rich voice and can also let out a powerful scream.
There will be a lot riding on the follow-up to this brilliant album, but I know KsE will not dissapoint. Definately pick up this CD, I highly recommend it. You won’t regret it.
