After listening to that, I don't really want to hear much more from this band. They're pretty generic, if you ask me. Digging: Cannibal Corpse - Violence Unimagined. At least download Numbered Days.
Very nice. I've heard many odd tracks from these guys and I don't care too much for them, but I prefer The End if Heartache stuff to this old stuff.
I think Howard Jones is a much better vocalist then Jesse Leach. Did you forget to rate the last two songs? Album Rating: 2. He does the old stuff better than Jesse ever did as well live. I agree, Howard kills Jesse, but the music on this album again, I've only heard 4 or so songs is better than the next. Plus, I saw a video with Howard and he couldn't hit any of the high notes. Jesse is amusing, especially when he tried to do a King Diamond impression on Roadrunner United.

Songs like the skyscraper huge Always and the call to the pit of In Due Time are established as essential Killswitch Engage anthems, and Disarm The Descent is an undoubted fan favourite. One of the great comebacks. The album that established Killswitch Engage as one of the most exciting metal acts on the planet, and was partially responsible for hastening the demise of nu-metal.
Alive Or Just Breathing is an absolutely monstrous set of songs. The riff that opens Numbered Days , the rhythmic battering of Life To The Lifeless and, of course, the generation defining anthem My Last Serenade are pretty much as good as metalcore has ever got.
