    Amazing!. This album is so good! It was the first one I got when I picked up my iPod and I'm glad I did that too. Killswitch Engage for the win! The songs My Curse and The End of Heartache especially showed the most meaning to me but still great job!

    A great metal-core album. I really like this album, I have a couple of favorite songs. Every one does not like Eye of the Storm but that's my favorite, followed by Desperate Times, Reject Yourself, and then Break this Silence.
  • Xavierxs95
    5 stars
    Superb. I have just really started to get into KsE. I usually enjoy lamb of god. But I love the strength, and powerfulness of his voice, then the high and low screaming by Howard and Jesse. I highly reccommend this album. I believe reject yourself is the best song on here

    Killswitch Engage FTW!!!. Killswitch Engage is definitely one of my favorite metal bands. In this album, I loved how they included acoustic style parts in each song. I really hope they continue to create more great songs.
  • mfhxcmhcg

    Super heavy.. KSE is my 2nd favorite band (1st is Darkest Hour. Check them out.) and this is their best album. PERIOD. End of heartache was great but this is way better. Daylight Dies: I dont know why this songs popularity is empty. I seriously dont. This song is my favorit without a doubt. It sounds alot like As I Lay Dying's "94 Hours" It has these super heavey chuggs then a melodic riff mixed with vocals that go along with it perfectly. This song never gets old. 6/5 This is Absolution: Again another great song with little popularity. It has great riffs and crazy vocals and drums. perfect for mosh pits. 2nd fav.5/5 Arms of sorrow: This is my 3rd favorite. this song has mostly clean vocals alternating between Howard and Adam with screaming in the backround. really catchy.5/5 Unbroken: great song but not a favorite. it is more upbeat and heavy with a catchy ending. My Curse: Every one loves this song, but i dont see why. its a great song dont get me wrong, but it gets old. 3.5/5 For You: This song is different but its good. 3/5 Still Beats Your Name:Alot like For You. has a more gentle chorus. 3/5 Eye of the Storm: probly the least popular on this album, but not the worst. 4/5 Break the silence: My 5th fav. nice lyrics and chorus. 4/5 Desprate times: this is my 4 th fav. actually its in a tie with arms of sorrow. this is more of a slow song so you can catch your breath after the previous songs but its also very powerful. the vocals are very passionate and the lyrics have the most meaning on the whole album. its like reading a verse from the bible. exelent. 4/5 Reject Yourself: after taking a breather with Desperate times, this song picks up the pace with KSE's signature brutality. This song also has a gentle side with the chourus. an exelent finishing track. 4/5 Epic music. Epic album. Epic Band. P.S : cut it out with the "click yes if you agree" nonsence. its really stupid. Click yes if you agree with me.

    Come on Haters!. First off, Let me say every single song on this album is a must have, Lyrics put together a different but relative story for each song! THIS ALBUM IS A DEFINITE BUY!!!! But for all of the Haters, I have a different message... If you don't like the album, don't listen to it! Simple as that! All of you "Old" Killswitch fans need to learn to accept a band when it changes, "Test The Waters" if you will... I too used to listen to the old Killswitch, I liked it! But the band got a new tone, I didn't shun it away because it's not the "music" I like. Listen to something different for a change! I turned up liking the "Current" Killswitch better than the old "Scream after Scream, Cant understand a word" Type of thing. I'm not telling you to go out and listen to Taylor Swift or anything like that, but dont hate it before you realise that it's actually a change for the better!!!

    Best Of The Best!. This band is a true metal inspiration for all. They are truly a metal band that is great to listen to. "killswitch Engage", "All That Remains", "Sacred Mother Tongue", and "Demon Hunter" are the bands that make metal, metal! Highly, highly Recommend!

    A Dissapointment. I was anxious when i heard KsE had made a new album. Alive or Just breathing was my first album of theirs and it was VERY pleasing. When i got end of heartache, i didnt like it as much, but i still enjoyed it. i felt like some of the songs werent really catchy writing, but more of filler tracks; however that album overall was still pleasing. when i bought this CD before listening to it, i was very dissapointed. First, they all sound like filler tracks to me, My Curse seems somewhat like a mediocre song. its sad when your most famous song is someone elses song (Holy Diver). I feel the more Howard feels the need to sing, the worse the albums get.
  • ShadowHawk148

    Took my breath away.. KsE transformed me into a hardcore metalhead by way of "My Curse". Amazing song, amazing alblum. Killswitch Engage blends the perfect ammount of melody and thrash. And the music videos capture more emotion than I thought possible for a metal song. Try the songs, and I highly reccomend "My Curse" and "The Arms of Sorrow."
