Nothing earth-shattering, but this is a strong outing for these guys. Has their signature on it.

This is what I will consider the first true return of Jesse to the band, the last one was mostly written before he joined so I'm considering this their fresh start since that album didn't wow me.

Have a soft spot for these, always reliable when it comes to making solid material.

I dig it. Kind of added in some southern, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster sort of riffing and vocals without losing the Killswitch sound.

I like this, it may be standard but Killswitch knows how to make standard songs sound great.

Digging: Iron Maiden - Powerslave

Has classic KS written all over it--very Alive or Just Breathing. It's not going to make you a fan of them if you already disliked them but, its a good tune overall

very standard for them but that still equals an entertaining melo metalcore track. the lead in the chorus is cool

The lighting and his beard makes Jesse look like Liev Schreiber as Sabertooth.

Good song, was hoping this album would show them pushing their sound or expanding it though. This is just more of the same. I'm kind of over it.

More of what I wanted from their last effort but I think like most people, I've grown out of wanting another album from these guys.

I dig this. New music from Killswitch isn't the most exciting thing anymore but they're definitely still solid and relevant.

From the interviews and press releases I've seen, this album is suppose to be pretty lengthy and have proggy influences, if the latter is true, I am on board.

You need to go away. Some people like this band. God forbid you don't.

Very standard single which is all I expect from most bands. I wasn't expecting Killswitch to come out with a radically new sound, maybe there is experimentation on the album but as far as singles go I dig it..

Surprised only 2 people are getting Soilwork vibes, as they were the very first thing to come to mind as soon as I hit play. Even the guitar tone is similar.

How can you claim something is horrible when you have a Disturbed, a Rise Against, and a Stick to your Guns album all 5'd?

totally agree with that comment.
This track has some strong southern metal undertones, and I also think the instrumentation is a bit more intricate and complex than your run of the mill KSE track.

Been a fan of KSE since the beginning. I'd like to see them stretch their progressive muscles at this point in their careers. This is OK, but it's about as generic KSE as it can get.

sure, i bet theyll bust out that acoustic guitar, and do one song with all singing.

prog.
