Yeah Adam is a fucking king on this album, but as someone said before I thought he was just ok on Times Of Grace

That was me, yeah. I think maybe it was just cos Adam sounded so emotionless compared to Jesse who is just dripping with emotion every note he sings, or maybe his voice just meshed better with Howard's. Either way, I want more TOG.

Probably not gonna happen now that he's back in Killswitch. What did everyone think of Disarm again?It's my least favourite
Killwitch to date and I think Jesse sounds pretty shitty there (unlike on Times Of Grace where as you said he sounds really
passionate)

Personally I thought Disarm was pretty solid, I loved Jesse's vocals as usual but I was disappointed in the lack of experimentation there. "Always" was my standout track, a solid 3.5 album for me although in the lower part of their discog. Still way better than KSEII for me.

Interesting, I thought Always sounded like a weak Times Of Grace song, might have been my least favourite. I thought Jesse's cleans were fine, but his harsh vox were pretty weak sounding. Instrumentally I thought the album was really uninteresting, with no real standouts at all. I liked In Due Time and Tribute To The Fallen enoughto 2.5 though. Realistically, KSEII suffers from many of the same problems, but I think Howard is a much better vocalist than Jesse and I really enjoyed it, enough to 4 it in fact.

Ehh I pretty much feel the same way about Howard as you do about Jesse, love his cleans but his screams pretty weak imo. I agree that DTD was probably Jesse's weakest performance to date and nowhere near the level that he laid down on AOJB and TOG (which are my favourite vocal performances in metalcore) but they're still pretty good.

I'll agree he sounds amazing on AOJB, but I'd still take Howard over him any day. And although his screams are nothing special, he definitely has some incredible moments, many of them are on here.

I find his screams are pretty much always in the same range and pitch and really tend to get quite
boring cos I know he's capable of better. Howard may have the better voice in terms of ability, but
Jesse definitely uses his talents WAY better and puts in so much more emotion (AOJB and TOG I'm
talking about here) which is why I prefer him. Some of my favourite vocal work in any genre ever is on
Hymn of a Broken Man, such as the "Carry my way/Uplift my spirits" chorus in Fight For Life, or the
end of Live in Love.

In Due Time's chorus was my fav part of the new one.

I see why you'd prefer Jesse then yeah. Bridge of In Due Time was my favourite.

Probably true in most cases, although I do love Howard's lyrics on this especially.
