About The End of Heartache by Killswitch Engage Album

The End of Heartache is the third studio album by American metalcore band Killswitch Engage. It was released on May 11, 2004 through Roadrunner Records. It is the first album to feature lead vocalist Howard Jones from the mathcore band Blood Has Been Shed after Jesse Leach's departure from the band. It is also the first album to feature Adam Dutkiewicz as the lead guitarist rather than the drummer. The new lineup played on the 2003 Ozzfest and the MTV2 Headbangers Ball tour. The first recording was the song "When Darkness Falls" appearing on the soundtrack to the 2003 horror film Freddy vs. Jason. The End of Heartache was released on May 11, 2004. The album debuted in the top 40 of the Australian album charts on May 17, 2004 following a successful tour of that country with Anthrax. The title track was nominated for Best Metal Performance for the 47th Annual Grammy Awards. Two music videos for "Rose of Sharyn" and "The End of Heartache" were filmed in promotion of the album. "Rose of Sharyn" had the group performing in a sunny desert with blood dripping from dead branches to form words. "The End of Heartache" featured a darkly lit performance with various computer animated imagery with scenes from Resident Evil: Apocalypse dotted throughout. Both videos saw notable airplay on Headbanger's Ball. In 2005, a special edition of the album was released which contained 6 additional tracks. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA on December 7, 2007.

- killswitch engage the end of heartache5 star

killswitch engage the end of heartache is an awesome album

- A good album!4 star

After hearing so many good things about this band, I decided to try out Killswitch Engage. I started with this album. While it was good, I feel that it got repetitive after a while. Favorites: A Bid Farewell, Take This Oath, When Darkness Falls, The End of Heartache, and Worlds Ablaze.

- Great album!!!!:)5 star

Like any other KSE album Howard & Jesse love em both the same!!!!!but wish more music like this today popular music and man gaga is taking over the world music industry is failing:(whoever stupid remark said my curse was the best song SMDH "Breathe Life"is :)and it show cases the guitar and drums well into the breakdown and bridge into the Solo!!!!!

- KSE KSE KSE!5 star

If i Had a choice to listen to this album or oxygen..... i'd choose KSE!

- Pure Alchemy: punctilio intended!5 star

Behold! Be prepared to experience a pentagon of serendipitous perfection. For real! The fusion created by this subliminal-metal band, Killswitch Engage: Howard Jones; Adam Dutkiewicz; Joel Stroetzel; Mike D'Antonio and Justin Foley, is epic. Sure, I could write a splendiferous review about their music, but, I'd rather take a cue from that brilliant movie, the Matrix; with my own twist of course: 'Unfortunately, no one can be told how awesome the End of Heartache is. You have to hear it for yourself.' Dude! Take the pill.

- Must have5 star

A must have album if you're a rock lover

- Great album4 star

This is without a doubt one of KSE's best albums, behind only Alive or Just Breathing. It does kind lose some steam in the second half, though. Here are my favorites: 1.The End of Heartache 2.Rose of Sharyn 3.Take This Oath 4.A Bid Farwell 5.Breathe Life

- Great!5 star

Love every song

- Engage Awesome!!5 star

Every song that I've listened to is INSANE!!! HOWARD JONES IS AMAZING!! What an incredible voice he has!! Jesse is great but does not compare to Howard!! The fast, melodic guitar and drop-dead gorgeous operatic voice paired with the shredding bass, drums and screaming is just mind blowing!!!

- Best Metal Band Ever?!!??5 star

This album is truly incredible every song very heavy and howards vocals are surreal

- The Heartache Has Been Revived !5 star

I seriously feel as if I'm engaging more into the tone on every listen. Howard or Jesse, it really doesn't matter what the f**k your opinion on which is better. Take the songs "The End of Heartache" and "My Last Serenade" for example, both equal TALENT and most importantly the TRUE art of all members of the band. Unlike the latest release (not gonna take forever, just weak compared to this) stick to your roots and bring back a strong impact with Jesse. The three words that describe, are (Killing, Switching, Engaging) now buy this. You will be equally pleased.

- Their best album IMO5 star

Howard you will be missed. IMO, you were even better than Jesse, this album proved it. I liked every song, not disappointed one bit. Money well spent.

ROSE OF SHARYN

- Best album I've ever heard5 star

This album has to be one of the best albums I've ever heard. Every song is great and gives me chills. The technicality of the guitars are some of the best I've heard. My favorites from this album are Rose Of Sharyn , The End Of Heartache , Breathe Life , Take This Oath , and A Bid Farewell. The rest of the songs are really good too. Not my favorite band , but this is my favorite album. Anyone thats a fan of great metal should get this album.

- Great band5 star

Great album too. Definatly check out- A Bid Farewell, Take This Oath, Rose of Sharyn, and End of Heartache. KSE NEVER DISAPOINTS!!!

- My Theme Song5 star

The End Of Heartache is my life story!!!!

- Great Album5 star

A little light on solos but solid guitar work, fierce vocals and heavy grooves with just the perfect amount of melody. Great band and maybe their best work.

- Still f@$&ing awesome5 star

- Amazing Album5 star

I love this album, and, along with Alive or Just Breathing, it is my favorite Killswitch album. Somehow, the songs never get old, no matter how many times I listen to them, and they are really well put together. Definately one of my favorite albums out of all of the bands I listen to.

best band ever period!!

- To the person who said the screams were fake....5 star

- Metalcore at its finest5 star

One of my favorite metalcore albums ever along with Alive or Just Breathing, Plagues, Downtown battle mountain, and Dear love: A Beautiful Discord. Track by track review: A Bid Farewell - 9/10 Great intro track to start off the album really cool rhythm during the verse and love the chorus intro chorus is pretty good too but not one of my favorites and the bridge is great again Take This Oath - 9/10 pretty progressive song love the chorus and the intro chorus the most in the song but my favorite part is the bridge When Darkness Falls - 9/10 The verse is kind of unoriginal for me but when it picks up before the chorus it just gets my heart pumping every time and is a great inspiring song very catchy and the chorus gets stuck in your head very easily and bridge egh ok but not that great just get excited for the chorus to come in again Rose Of Sharyn - 100000000/10 This song and The End Of Heartache are my favorite songs by Killswitch and even all time favorite metal songs (With Fixation On The Darkness at second). I find this song so inspiring and so deep. Everything in the song is perfect Inhale - 8/10 Good simple relaxing interlude to give you a break from all the headbanging but it also doesn't escape from the theme of the album Breathe Life - 8/10 I love the opening guitar riff so awesome and the verse is awesome too and the chorus is ok not standing out from the rest of the album though. This song has never stood out to me for some reason but another great song on one of my favorite albums The End Of Heartache - 100000000/10 The song that got me into Killswitch and still one of my favorites. This song is such an inspiration to me. Everything is perfect in this song and has gotten me through hard times before. Im very excited to cover this song with my band! Declaration - 8/10 Very Intense song and a good follow song but it doesnt really stand out on its own for me World Ablaze - 8/10 I really love all of this song until the chorus which I really don't like for some reason but this has one of my favorite verses on the album. The chorus might be awesome for others but its just not that good in my opinion And Embers Rise - 9/10 Really cool interlude and gives you a great vibe and a perfect lead into Wasted Sacrifice Wasted Sacrifice - 10/10 My second favorite after Rose of Sharyn and The End Of Heartache. This song has always really clicked for me I love the screaming in this song and this song has one of my favorite choruses on the albums really cool chord progression and sounds pretty major compared to the other choruses on this album and it just sounds a lot different for me Hope is... - I love the breakdown riff they have in the first part of the first verse but the rest is only ok for me until the bridge which is awesome again and I really like the ending but all the in-between I dont like very much honestly Cant Decide If I like this or Alive or Just Breathing more now or if I like Howard or Jesse more. I'm going to have to say jesse is my boy but Howard has really grown on me Dont think about it just buy it you wont be disappointed!!

- words cannot describe.5 star

ive had this album for years now...and its like i just got it yesterday. these songs never get old. this one's timeless.

- I am blown away again.5 star

This album is simply amazing. However, it really makes me mad when people only focus on vocals and are ignorant about instruments. I agree with giving this 5 stars, but the instrumentals shouldn't get less than a 8.5/10. In fact, I give them a 10/10 because I play guitar and Adam and Joel are just awesome. Killswitch Engage combines creativity and talent in the vocals and even more so in the instruments (I say that because it's harder to play an instrument well than to sing) and this album was the result. infinite/5

- Great album5 star

This is by far my faviorite album of KSE.

- Beautiful, Fast & Unrelenting5 star

Killswitch Engage's best work. Don't just buy Rose of Sharyn; take it from me - buy the whole album.

A Bid Farewell: 8/10 Take This Oath: 8.75/10 When Darkness Falls: 9.25/10 Rose of Sharyn: 10/10 Inhale: 7/10 Breathe Life: 8.5/10 The End of Heartache: 10/10 Declaration: 8/10 World Ablaze: 7.5/10 And Embers Rise: 7.5/10 Wasted Sacrifice: 9/10 Hope Is...: 8.5/10

three words...ROSE OF SHARYN...that is all

- Awesome5 star

I'm not much of a screamer fan AT ALL but The End of Heartache, BLEW my mind, and I now enjoy some screamo songs, but only by kse.

- the end of heartache. rose of sharon.5 star

nough said.

- Hell Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!5 star

KSE is freakin awsome and rose of sharyn is badass

- yet another fantastic release from killswitch engage5 star

every track on this album from start to finish is just flat out amazing,i bought this origonaly for, when darkness falls which might be the best track on the album, and i had this for mounths on end only listening to that one track, when i listened to it all the way through the first time, i hated it, then another time i tried and got through it. the next day all those tracks where ringing in my head,, this is the kind of album that doesnt hit you right away, it needs time to grow, so my suggestion it to buy the whole album and listen to it a couple of times, that way it can grow and you will like it more. best tracks on this if i HAD to pick are - when darkness falls, the end of heartake, rose of sharyn, and hope is...

- Awesome..and thankfully not emo5 star

Beats all the slipknot,mcr, and other screamo/emo junk out there. Great Album. The screaming doesn't really make you think ooh cut my wrists. Which is one of the reasons im happy. This and avenged sevenfolds waking the fallen ablum is really the only music i like with screaming.When Darkness Falls is the best song.

- the best!!!!!!!!5 star

best freakin album ever. end of heartache=pure awesomeness. :)

- Take this Oath5 star

Awesome!!!

- Perfection5 star

What a great, great collection of tracks. Wow, this is metal at it's very best, stripped down, brutal yet melodic and memorable. Best if listened to in it's entirety...

- The End of Heartache Review5 star

one of my favorite cd's ever my favorite songs i would have to say are take this oath and rose of sharyn

Too bad my dad thinks its too heave when my mom let's me listen to way heavier stuff.

Galthuil - Man i like KsE!5 star

Howard or Jesse, i don't care i like both singer they are awesome. I really love riffs that adam and joel play together and i think overall KsE is a really good group. And its one of the best live group i've seen imo.

DrVanBoogie - Amazing!5 star

The final riff of Rose Of Sharyn is freaking unbelievable!

Sancho Calleja - Great Metalcore5 star

This is what metalcore should be. What metalcore SHOULDN'T be is a bunch of emos trying to be both cute and brutal. That kind of metalcore is formulaic and very unoriginal. But the main problem of that kind of Metalcore is that the emos seem to be more concerned with their looks rather than the music. KSE definitely thinks about the music. When you listen to any of the songs on the album, you find substance. Yes, the lyrics still have that heartbroken (no pun intended) angst thing going on but vocalist Howard Jones makes his words and emotions sound real unlike most. KSE are technically sound and their vocalist has talent. It doesn't matter if you want to call this metal, metalcore, hard rock, death-metal, etc. All that matters is that this is an album with heart (again, no pun intended), a refreshing break from those other metalcore albums that feel hollow.
