Oh my god, not only is the song unexpectedly good, but Adam D can mix metalcore like a god. Such a
clean and well produced sound. I am really ready for this album now.

I hope there are a couple songs with AOJB-level choruses. Something with more heart, if you know what
I mean. This song is great, but the chorus is standard and not really helping the song.

For me, their most recent album isn't that bad. I think it has a few really good songs, but they
aren't as "groovy" as the older Killswitch songs, and a bit more catchy.

This new song sounds pretty unique compared to any of their past songs. I won't let it define the
album as it is only one song, but I am excited now.

The chorus gives them that reason, but I accept the average chorus when the song as a whole is pretty

Killswitch is capable of. Listen to this:

I don't think they can really pull off something truly well-rounded or above average unless they significantly evolve their style. There's only so much you can do with the metalcore sound, and even though they did it really well for a few albums, it just needs to change or die.

The problem for me is in prime Killswitch the verses are dark and heavy and then the chorus's get melodic on a dime. That's what made it so good. These days even the verses always have a melodic twang to them. This song's not bad tho.

The opening riff is nice, but the song sounds as if it may have been written for Howard more than Jesse...or "bland choruses" have just become synonymous with Howard, for me. In either case, this is super average.

Talk about an average chorus. One of the reasons I love AOJB is because Jesse totally nailed pretty much every chorus. The two new songs have had very underwhelming ones. Song is alright, I was really pumped for this album initially but I'm losing faith that it will be anything close to special.

"Disarm The Descent" was mixed by veteran British producer Andy Sneap, who has previously worked with
MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, ACCEPT, ARCH ENEMY and NEVERMORE."
http://www.blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=185615

Andy Sneap is great! He is good with balance and sound stage. Interesting that Adam D didn't do all of
the sound production. Andy did work on Alive or Just Breathing and the End of Heartache, so it makes
sense.
