Editorial Reviews

Disarm The Descent marks the return of original singer Jesse Leach to Killswitch Engage. Leach was the voice behind the genre defining release Alive Or Just Breathing. This album has been hailed as one of the most anticipated releases of 2013 by magazines, blogs and most importantly the fans who are eagerly welcoming Jesse back into the band after 10 years away.

Special Edition includes bonus DVD of the making of Disarm The Descent.

Don't call it a comeback.

Other than Metallica, has any metal band ever been under more scrutiny or pressure to deliver landmark albums with every successive release than Killswitch Engage? Whether it was 'End Of Heartache', the record which had the impossible task of following up 2002's master work 'Alive Or Just Breathing' while simultaniouly introducing the world to the aural assault that was Howard Jones; or `As Daylight Dies' which had to duplicate the breakthrough success of its predecessor; or 2013's `Disarm The Descent' which faces the truly daunting task of both righting the perceived shortcomings of their second eponymous record and herald the return of Mr. Leach, Killswitch Engage, arguably the most successful band in Metalcore, seems to be forever behind the eight ball.

Good.

'Disarm The Descent' is a record which seems to have been written with the understanding that it would be perceived as the new standard-bearer; the record that would carve in stone the sonic legacy of Metalcore's banner band, or stand as the line of demarcation between the old guard and the shape of pinched harmonics to come. 'Disarm' has answered the call and then some, and Killswitch have offered a record that will suffer incalculable assassination attempts while it delivers track after track of calculated fury; seemingly unaware of the internet arrows that fall well short of their intended mark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back Jesse! April 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to believe it's been over 10 years since Killswitch Engage released their genre-defining classic, Alive or Just Breathing. Original vocalist Jesse Leach left the band following said album, and the band continued on with vocalist Howard Jones for the next 9 years and 3 releases (it's been 4 years since the 2nd self-titled release!). My own interest in the band seemed to wane after The End of Heartache as the band's material seemed to be getting stagnant and slightly more mellow. When news broke in early 2012 that Howard would be leaving the band and the subsequent news of Leach's return, I couldn't help but be excited for what lied ahead for the band. After all, Jesse collaborated with Adam D. the year prior with the excellent Times of Grace. So, along with undoubtably many others in the metal community, this became one of my most hotly anticipated titles of 2013.

So how does it hold up to expectations? Provided you are not expecting Alive or Just Breathing Part 2, both old and new fans of KsE should find plenty to enjoy here. As I had hoped, the return of Jesse Leach to the band has invigorated them. As I previously mentioned, my own interest in the band had declined to the point of listening to the self titled disc #2 just a few times before I was bored with it. The band seemed to be stuck in a songwriting rut. The riffs were stale, with cookie-cutter choruses that seemed lifeless and uninspired. As I listen to Disarm the Descent, I don't get that same feeling. 2013 Killswitch Engage is firing on all cylinders once again! Much like Soilwork's recent opener, "Spectrum of Eternity", opening track "The Hell in Me" will undoubtably take many aback with it's heavier than expected introduction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killswitch Engage on Steroids April 4, 2013
By Ryan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I thought about writing a full fledged review. But I decided to keep it short and to the point. I don't even know what to say about this album. This is something else entirely. I'm trying NOT to listen to it 24 hours a day for fear of spoiling the awesomeness. This is something metalcore has been waiting for, for a long time. Don't get me wrong, I love Howard Jones and I await more music from him, but this is Killswitch Engage, this is what they were meant to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best KSE album to date. April 20, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I usually don't take the time to review anything on Amazon, but I feel compelled after giving this album a few listens. To put it simply, this album is downright incredible. I personally think it even surpasses Alive or Just Breathing and I don't say that lightly considering Alive or Just Breathing is/was my favorite album of all time. I will admit that I'm a sucker for most everything Jesse Leach does. The man has such passion and sincerity in his voice and I love the positive message within his lyrics. Didn't love Seemless as much as his harder stuff, but in my opinion, nearly everything he has applied his vocals to has been nothing short of amazing. It feels as if he's breathed new life into a band that was slipping into mediocrity.

Don't get me wrong. Howard was an amazing singer. Hell, he was the one that got me into "heavier" metal when I listened to The End of Heartache, which started my progression toward listening to death, black and all other flavors of metal, but when I got Alive or Just Breathing and heard Jesse's growls, screams and especially his melodic singing, I fell in love. Something about what he says and how he says it really spoke and still speaks to me. His obviously deep passion towards the words he speaks and the authenticity with which he conveys those words are a big part of what makes him so marvelous. I've been hoping for his return to heavier music for a while. The Empire Shall Fall was the first gleam of hope in that respect and while that band is extremely awesome, it just wasn't the same as his past with KSE in my opinion. Same went with Times of Grace (and yes I know that Adam D produced and plays in band). I love both of those bands a ton, but they just didn't seem as great as the original KSE to me.

Will this AutoRip?
Worst case scenario you could rip the cd yourself and upload it to the cloud. That's what I will be doing before i start to listen to it, just in case autorip isn't available for this album.
