While i'd agree that Alive Or Just Breathing and The End of Heartache are better albums, i really think KSE's debut is a VERY good album that's really underrated. Any fans that got hooked with Alive or Heartache should definitely check out this album as well.

It starts out with two of KSE's classics: Temles from the Within and Vide Infra. Both are as good as anything KSE has released. Even though they got a (very welcomed) remaster on Alive Or Just Breathing, these rawer versions are still very enjoyable. The two other (lost?) classics on this album are Rusted Embrace; with it's excellent riffing and catchy vocals, and In The Unblind; with it's sheer heaviness and unforgettable "Burn! The! System! Kill! The! System!" screamed part. It must be unbelievably fun to scream along with that live (if they ever play it).

While the rest of the album doesn't stack up to those four tracks, it's by no means bad. Just perhaps not as memorable as those four songs or most of Alive and Heartache. Two things that hold this album back is the production; which really pales in comparison to Alive and Heartache, and the vocals; which just don't have the perfectly executed punch that Alive and Heartache did.

The clean/melodic vocals are also few and far between, which can be a good or bad thing depending on your point of view. As far as i'm concerned, the clean vocals and melodic choruses have become one of KSE's best weopons and part of their signature sound. If it's one thing they do better than any other modern metal band it's writing catchy vocal melodies, and that element is sorely lacking on this album.

But, what this album lacks in melodic vocals it makes up for in sheer power and agression. This is not a "nice" album. It's more vicious than Alive and Heartache combined.

This album is alot heavier and more raw than their second CD. That isn't a good or bad thing. It's still Killswitch Engage and that makes it good enough for me. Heavy guitar riffs, flawless vocals, talented drummer, bass that you can actually hear for once......the perfect metal band. Heavy and melodic. Personally, I'd get the newest one first cos it's more easy to digest (not by much though cos it's still extremely brutal and heavy) and then if you decide you are a fan of the band, then pick up this CD. This is such a great band. If Pantera wasn't around, they'd probably be the best.

I really don't see why some people--especially fans--don't enjoy this debut very much. It's still metalcore--it's not like it's rap or nu-metal, and it typically sounds quite awesome. The only reason I can think of for disliking it is that Killswitch's trademark, passionate melody and soulful vocals are missing. But what's wrong with melody and harmony deficient heavy metal? If Lamb of God can get away with it, why can't these guys? The songs' verses on this record are similar to those on "Alive Or Just Breathing" and "The End of Heartache," because the vocalist (Jesse Leach) rants and rages over Adam and Joel's scorching riffs. But, instead of taking a break for a melodic chorus with clean singing, the band keep on going with the heavy stuff. With blowtorch guitars, pounding drums, and intense vocals, it actually kind of sounds like a somewhat milder version of The Black Dahlia Murder. In fact, "Irreversal" (which features thunderous riffs and double bass drumming) could be a b-side from one of their albums. Tracks seven is another abnormally heavy song, but "Temples from the Within" shows a flash of what was to come on Killswitch's later albums, with a running beat with fast, chugging riffs and bursts of machine gun drums. "Rusted Embrace" has a couple of wicked, primal screams alongside great riffing, and "Soilborn" is a mid-tempo instrumental which makes for a nice centerpiece for the album. A tad bit of melody shines through in "One Last Sunset," with a clean, backing vocal refrain and a brief acoustic breakdown--but most of that song is power chords and rapid-fire drumming. The reissue/remastered version of this C.D. is definitely worth getting if you're a fan, because it features four extra tracks.Read more ›

Okay, Jake, so I checked out your other reviews, and all you do is bash bands that scream. Then, you rated "The Used" and "Avril Lavigne" good? You obviouslly A)have no taste in music B)have no ear for good music C)Don't play an instrument/play in a band. People like you don't realize that music is about emotion, or rather, music should be about emotion. As a guitarist for a devastatingly emotional heavy metal band, I judge music on the feeling it conveys to me and the chords/instrumental harmonies/vocal harmonies that the band uses to make me feel the way I do. Killswitch does this in quite a unique way. To tell you the truth, Killswitch defines the feeling I want my music to have. They start out on some of the most wildly deviant metal riffs I've had the pleasure of hearing, and then, without warning, and with an incredible ammount of smoothness and clarity, they transition into such powerful/emotional choruses, I can't even describe. I get goosebumps on about every song on either of their albums, some songs have gone so far as to well up a lump in my throat, and cause my eyes to tear. This band is beyond words, in my opinion (as a musician), and I think anyone who enjoys music sending their souls from hell to heaven and back again will benefit greatly from anything this band ever releases.
