    Still amazing. I first heard "My Curse" in Burnout Paradise and I instantly fell in love with this album. Too bad I was too young to remember the artist, I recently found them again and now that I can actually listen to all of their music they're one of my favorite bands.

    Think Rock is dead? Think again.. Howard Jones is easily in the top five frontmen for bands in the 21st century, along with Rise Against, Matt Shadows and Dave Grohl. This album is the definition of a perfect album. Every song is crisp, original, and different. Please check this puppy out. This is KSE's best album. Period.

    Nothing Like KSE. One of the best metalcore bands ever. I stated listening to them in high school through my enlistment in the Marines and as a PMC. Love KSE. If you like KSE you should check out Times of Grace too.

    Took me awhile but I love this cd. I'm more it to the harder metal but at 1st I felt his the were just a radio band but there not there Totally Unique and bring fresh music to the table. The best part about this band to me is of they wanted to the could make a very good death metal cd with no singing if they wanted to our could make one with just singing and it would still be great. Mega talent in this band...Howard is the man

    A metal triumph. Killswitch Engage has never had an album accomplish so much in their genre as this album. It expresses their style of music in their own signature way much better than their other albums do. The other albums are great, but As Daylight Dies stands out the most. If you are new to this band, this is the album to check out first. Personal Favorites are This Fire, Be One, Daylight Dies, and My Curse.

    K.S.E. As Daylight Dies!. This album from start to finish is the greatest album they've put out. Howard's voice is so powerful and the drums, bass, and axes punch you in the face and inspire the soul at the same time. Should be the album of the century for "Best written and produced metal album".

    Dio cover not for old school dio fans. Lots of decent songs on this album. I'm a little confused by some of the people rating this low due to the dio cover. They're upset because they say it sounds nothing like the original. People it's not supposed to, holy diver was originally released in 1983, times have changed slightly in styles of metal to say the least. If you were old enough to be into dio and that style of metal you WILL NOT like this almost definitely. Personally I think it's a great cover. Still has some of that classic sound but with a new aged true heavy sound. Btw people some people think the band is done. They are currently on tour and have a new album coming out with the original singer Jesse leach. If your in the dfw area they will be here dec 2nd.

    Awesome. I'm not really a fan of the actual screaming, like KSE screaming and As I Lay Dying (I like Slipknot's style of yelling better), but with these guys I'll make and exception. Amazing band, amazing album. I can't even tell you how much I love listening to their music. A must-buy for all metal fans.

    I thank on behalf to "My Curse" for getting me here. I have been listening to some pandora from my 5FDP or whatever station (can't remember exactly) but the song "My Curse" came on and, at first, did not like it. I didn't really care for the heavier "core" side of metal music that much and never listened to that, as I only listened to heavy metal Metallica music. I thought the screaming was pointless at first and totally trashed these bands with their own style, but now I have been listening to bands like Avenged Sevenfold's first two albums, All That Remains, As I Lay Dying, Asking Alexandria, August Burns Red, Bullet For My Valentine, Bring Me the Horizon, The Devil Wears Prada, The Empire Shall Fall, Killswitch Engage/Times of Grace, Trivium, Underoath and Unearth. Honestly, heavier music is better, and so are (you tell me) this album? I think so, and this album sounds great! Although Alive or Just Breathing is KsE's best, this and The End of Heartache are beyond amazing. Peace out metalheads \m/ (-,-) \m/

    Opened my mind and expanded my taste in music, Big time. My Last Serenade was the song that gave me the bug. My best friend and I have been in disagreement with screaming and growling in music, ever since he got into doom and black metal. Let me just say. From knowing about a band for only one day before going to Tresspass America concert. They were one of 5 bands that opened for Five Finger Death Punch. That was Aug 17th House of blues Boston!!! woo!! I got an listened to Alive or Just Breathing that day, then bought The End of Heartache the next day, then a few hours after listening to Howard I bought As Daylight Dies. There is something special about this band, and the screaming I seemed to make an exception for this Band. But later realizing they're just that good. Listening to all the albums, i can say for once both vocalist brought their uniqueness to the table, I'm indifferent with who I prefer. And no band with switching vocalists, have I viewed it as a reinforcement than a loss. I think Jesse and Howard are both awesome vocalists and have their strengths and weaknesses Writing/Vocal wise. And Adam the lead guitarist is hilarious!!! They were amazing with the crowd, and connected with us like no other that concert. From a person who got a headache and cringed from any screaming music, with the exception of 5FDP, for many years, now just all of a sudden raised up the bar for my taste in music, and I thank you KSE!! Cant stop listening to them!! Fav songs from this album - Reject Yourself, Eye of the Storm, My Curse, Holy Diver. Hope this helps people with similar situations. 😊

    Metalcore at it. This album is by far one of the best metalcore albums I've ever listened to. Howard's singing can go from high pitched screams, to low growls, to a magestic singing voice unlike anything I've heard in metal. Every song is fantastic, and whether or not you're a fan of metalcore, you'll like this album no doubt. The Arms of Sorrow, Holy Diver, My Curse, and Reject Yourself are the best in my opinion.

    Blew me away doesn't even begin to describe it. WOW. thats all I can say, and I'm gonna say why. Howard Jones, in my opinion, is the best singer to come out of the New Wave of American Metal. His harsh vocals can dissect a human soul from a mans body, and his clean singing can gently sew that soul back into that man, and give that man new life. Honestly, in my opinion, and I'm going to get completely slammed for saying this, in terms of what Howard can do with his voice, in terms of celestial operatic highs to abysmal lows, only Scar Symmetry/Solution .45/Miseration frontman Christian Alvestam can do what Howard Jones does. Yet enough about Howard Jones for a moment, let us now move on the the music. The music takes all of the melody in melodic metalcore and turns it up to eleven, but with all do respect, there is absolutely no let up in the sheer brutality and execution of the notes being played that there was on End of Heartache. The musicianship on this record is infinitely complex and virtuosic, not for the faint of heart, not for beginners to try their luck on. In my opinion, this humble album renders all other KSE records before and after it irrelevant, accept for End of Heartache, which for me is an extremely close second for me.

    I never knew I was a fan of the heavier metal till Holy diver. I was with an old friend of mine checking out a cover band, They rocked this song, that night I got home and at 3 am I was trying to find the song via the net. Needless to say almost 2 months later I finally find it. This song in paticular strikes a cord with me. I am am indeed a huge fan of "Killswitch Engage"

    Very Nice. This has to be my second favorite killswitch cd next to alive or just breathing. As of now, i think this is the band's best cd with Howard. His screams are amazing and his singing is flat out epic. Riffage is great, bass lines are awesome, drums are crazy, lyrics are outstanding... it's just a great cd. Not usually a fan of covers, but i really enjoyed their remake of Dio's "Holy Diver". It's one of the best songs on the cd (ever notice how their bonus tracks are some of their best songs?). In all, it's a great metal album. Stand out tracks: Daylight Dies, Arms of Sorrow, My Curse, Desperate Times, Let the Bridges Burn, This Fire, and Holy Diver

    Gotta Have It. Being I was introduced to this band while surfing Itunes for new bands to listen to, I came across this album and I loved it that moment. I would highly recommend this band, as well as this album, to metalheads and rock fans out there.

    OMG!!!! Haters?. Im tired of the ONLY complaint being, "They STOLE Dios song!!!!" Bull! Its called a COVER song , They give FULL crdit to Dio and every concert they dedicate the song to Dios memory before they perform it , They took an old GREAT song that had HORRIBLE quality and made it sound like THEM it is the BEST cover song I have probably EVER heard, stop hating and relise theyre paying omage to Dio not stealing his material

    Hmmmm...... There's something about the singer's clean voice that just kinda kills the band for me. Don't get me wrong, his screams are really awesome and his clean vocals are really good.... but for some reason his clean voice just is not good for a metal song... more for a jazz song or something like that. I listen to bands like Atreyu and As I Lay Dying so I like clean vocals but his just don't do it for me. Hmmmm...

    Jesus christ, this is horrible.. It sounds like five-year-olds got out some guitars and drums and started bashing them against stuff. I can't follow the rhythm, the vocals are bad, and it just sounds like a big mess. Holy Diver is decent, though, which is why I'm giving it two stars instead of one. By the way, I do listen to some of this type of music, so I'm not one of those random "I only listen to pop and this sounds horrible because it's not pop" people. But seriously. Do not buy this crap.

Don't let any of these 1-3star people let you down the ratio of 5 stars to lower is like 5:1 haha and your version of Holy Diver is amazing, just like all of your songs. THE END. (notice the period haters, you've no room left to complain. If you don't like it gtfo KsE's reviews and don't listen to it)

    Unbelievable. Right from the start of Daylight Dies, you know this album is going to rape face. And it does, every single song. The beastly playing of Adam and Joel combined with Howard's vocals produces an album that will still be loved 50 years from now. I know I'll be jamming to this music. This is the type of stuff we need to keep alive. Every song is great, I give them all 10 stars. Good work, KSE.

    I never knew I was a fan of the heavier metal till Holy diver. I was with an old friend of mine checking out a cover band, They rocked this song, that night I got home and at 3 am I was trying to find the song via the net. Needless to say almost 2 months later I finally find it. This song in paticular strikes a cord with me. I am am indeed a huge fan of "Killswitch Engage"

    Unbelieveable. This is an amazing band, I'd say KSE is pretty much tied with ABR for me.

    Very Nice. This has to be my second favorite killswitch cd next to alive or just breathing. As of now, i think this is the band's best cd with Howard. His screams are amazing and his singing is flat out epic. Riffage is great, bass lines are awesome, drums are crazy, lyrics are outstanding... it's just a great cd. Not usually a fan of covers, but i really enjoyed their remake of Dio's "Holy Diver". It's one of the best songs on the cd (ever notice how their bonus tracks are some of their best songs?). In all, it's a great metal album. Stand out tracks: Daylight Dies, Arms of Sorrow, My Curse, Desperate Times, Let the Bridges Burn, This Fire, and Holy Diver

    Gotta Have It. Being I was introduced to this band while surfing Itunes for new bands to listen to, I came across this album and I loved it that moment. I would highly recommend this band, as well as this album, to metalheads and rock fans out there.

    OMG!!!! Haters?. Im tired of the ONLY complaint being, "They STOLE Dios song!!!!" Bull! Its called a COVER song , They give FULL crdit to Dio and every concert they dedicate the song to Dios memory before they perform it , They took an old GREAT song that had HORRIBLE quality and made it sound like THEM it is the BEST cover song I have probably EVER heard, stop hating and relise theyre paying omage to Dio not stealing his material

    Good. I hate metalcore. I find it hard to tolerate these bands but killswitch engage is tolerable. They really produce some good metal here. The only two metalcore bands I can sit down and listen to are killswitch engage and trivium.

    Hmmmm...... There's something about the singer's clean voice that just kinda kills the band for me. Don't get me wrong, his screams are really awesome and his clean vocals are really good.... but for some reason his clean voice just is not good for a metal song... more for a jazz song or something like that. I listen to bands like Atreyu and As I Lay Dying so I like clean vocals but his just don't do it for me. Hmmmm...

    Oh balls. This is one of the greatest albums I've ever heard! Any objections? If so, you probably have half a brain or are racist toward Howard. Either way, your trolling is not needed. Holy diver is the most insane cover song ever!

    Jesus christ, this is horrible.. It sounds like five-year-olds got out some guitars and drums and started bashing them against stuff. I can't follow the rhythm, the vocals are bad, and it just sounds like a big mess. Holy Diver is decent, though, which is why I'm giving it two stars instead of one. By the way, I do listen to some of this type of music, so I'm not one of those random "I only listen to pop and this sounds horrible because it's not pop" people. But seriously. Do not buy this crap.

    Hahaha. Great album KsE!!! Don't let any of these 1-3star people let you down the ratio of 5 stars to lower is like 5:1 haha and your version of Holy Diver is amazing, just like all of your songs. THE END. (notice the period haters, you've no room left to complain. If you don't like it gtfo KsE's reviews and don't listen to it)

    Unbelievable. Right from the start of Daylight Dies, you know this album is going to rape face. And it does, every single song. The beastly playing of Adam and Joel combined with Howard's vocals produces an album that will still be loved 50 years from now. I know I'll be jamming to this music. This is the type of stuff we need to keep alive. Every song is great, I give them all 10 stars. Good work, KSE.
