Killswitch Engaging


MASTERS of melodic metalcore Killswitch Engage's latest eponymous album sees the band as engaging as ever.
In fact, Killswitch Engage might end up being a breakwater for the Massachusetts group - who reach the five album mark with this release.
Because the LP - actually the band's second self-titled effort - is the first with an outside producer in the form of Brendan O'Brien, and as a result the melodic side of the band, too often frustratingly fleeting on previous efforts, has been coaxed out to great effect.
With their ever-acerbic metal laced with just enough of a hook for the length of Killswitch Engage, rather than merely showcased in the singles, Killswitch Engage are continuing to grow with every release.
