Editorial Reviews

Product Description


"Jones' confidence and acumen carry over into his vocal performances, bringing different elements to The End of Heartache." -- Aquarian Weekly, 4/14/04

"The songs are longer, more metallic and the choruses more epic, than those of the previous release." -- Guitar World, 6/2004

"Tracks "A Bid Farewell", "World Ablaze", and "Rose of Sharyn" simply kill any of the offerings from the previous release." -- Revolver Magazine, 6/2004

Customer Reviews

Well, even though I hate roadrunner for releasing things like this less then a year after the cd came out. I love this digipack, the live versions of Life to Lifeless, Fixation on Darkness and My Last Seranade are incredible. The only track that seems like it doesn't belong is the resident evil version of the end of heartache, pretty much the same song just filler.

Plus you get the incredible " The End of Heartache" on the first disk. I bought the end of heartache on its first day out and I was simply blown away. So buying this was pretty much a no brainer Great cd. Also comes with a cool new slipcase. Stop reading this and buy it already.

Coming off the underground success of their previous album, "Alive or Just Breathing," Killswitch Engage have released a follow-up that should only solidify their reputation as one of heavy music's top young bands. These guys were already established as a leading band in the crowded melodic hardcore genre, and "The End of Heartache" sees their sound becoming even more focused and diverse. While still a notch below the truly great heavy bands like Burnt By The Sun, the Dillinger Escape Plan, and Meshuggah, KSE are definitely on their way up. Three albums into their career, they may well be peaking right now.
What's most impressive about this album is just how tightly written and played it is. Every song is calculated for maximum visceral and emotional impact, with the band deftly exploiting dynamics as they careen back and forth between balls-out aggression and soaring melodies. Yes, there are plenty of bands in the metal/hardcore/metalcore/whatever genre doing that right now, but KSE are still notable for the emotion, creativity, and musicianship they bring to the genre. Adam Dutkiewicz and Joel Stroetzel lead the charge with a devastating two-guitar assault, cranking out some complex and interesting riff structures without sacrificing the intensity that's at the core of the band's sound. Howard Jones also deserves a great deal of credit, stepping in on vocals for the departed Jesse Leach without missing a beat and somehow managing to raise the emotional stakes even higher than his predecessor. Howard's screams are more jarring, and his clean singing clearer, making him a perfect match for the band's unpredictable, wide-ranging sound. Throw in a pile-driving rhythm section, and you've got a band that's getting very good at combining power with polish.

Throughout my meandering of the website researching bands and seeing what my fellow users think of them, I have made a few observations that I'd like to share.
First, I think that everyone who writes a review on this site should at least run his/her review through a spell-checker. Now granted, a lot of you are unemployed GED recipients living in your parents' basement, and I know your grammar and diction are not at the top of their respective games. Nonetheless, a simple copy/paste from your browser into Word should do the trick.
Second, I think that reviewers tend to make mistakes when they compare bands. For example, comparing Killswitch Engage to Nine Inch Nails is like comparing Smashing Pumpkins to Rancid; they're not even on the same radar screen. At least make comparisons in the same genre. If Nine Inch Nails is a poser band, run them up against Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, or KMFDM. If Killswitch Engage is a poser band, run them up against Lamb of God, God Forbid, Machine Head, Atreyu, or Avenged Sevenfold. Apples to apples people; simple math.
Third, I think my definition of brutal is VASTLY different from that of some users on this site. While "The End of Heartache" is an excellent album, and while it is definitely harder-edged than your standard Korn or Linkin Park CD, it is without a doubt NOT the most brutal, maniacal music I've ever heard. And it is FAR from being the most brutal album of the millennium. It definitely would take a band like Suffocation, Vital Remains, Cannibal Corpse, Cattle Decapitation, or Myrksgog to wrangle that title. Sad thing is, it's 2004 and we're 996 years away from the end of the millennium. Who knows? A more brutal band JUST MIGHT come along.

Killswitch Engage are one of the best metal bands to emerge in recent years. I, being relatively new to the world of metal, first heard their song "When Darkness Falls" on the "Freddy Vs. Jason" soundtrack a few years back. It blew me away, but I wasn't sure whether or not I was convinced enough to buy one of their albums. Then I heard another song by them on the "Headbanger's Ball Volume One" compilation, and decided that I could ignore them no longer. I went and got "Alive or Just Breathing," an unbelievably awesome CD, and one of the few I could play the entire way through without having to skip a song. After this album, Killswitch parted ways with their singer Jesse David Leach and recruited vocalist Howard Jones as their new frontman. Although some saw this as the beginning of the end for the band, many others welcomed it as a good step in a fresh new direction. I was already biased towards Jones, mainly because he provided the vocals for the two songs that got me hooked on the band, and though Leach is by no means a bad singer, I personally prefered Jones. Now I'm sure there are bunch of you out there who already hate me and are now ready to press "no" at the bottom of this review. I can't really do much to stop you besides finishing my critique. From the second I saw "Rose of Sharyn" on Headbanger's Ball, I knew I had to get this CD. I promptly did, and let me tell you, it's hands down one of the best investments I've ever made. The opening "A Bid Farewell" features an extremely headbangable rhythmic opening, and goes on to display what this band is all about: a good amount of heaviness, a good amount of melody, and an overall sense of power. "Take This Oath" is up next, and though it is not as memorable as "A Bid Farewell," it's still a good song.Read more ›
