Killswitch Engage set to release new album

Wednesday, August 23, 2006 9:55 AM PT


Killswitch Engage has titled their upcoming album "As Daylight Dies." Produced by Killswitch guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, the effort will hit stores on November 21st via Roadrunner Records. Speaking to MTV.com, bassist Mike D'Antonio had the following to say:

"There was really hardly any thought put into it at all. It just came out and we hadn't written in so long that everyone had a lot to contribute. It felt more like the sessions for Alive Or Just Breathing, where everyone was contributing, and everyone had a say. That is more, to me, what the Killswitch style is. But, it is the typical line that everyone gives you - that this is a heavier album — but it kind of is. It's definitely way heavier. There are still the melodic choruses here and there, and there's a lot to latch onto. But it's heavy."

heavy? get another bassist, out-rock home pharmacy, and we'll talk about 'heavy'

8/23/2006 10:49:55 AM
There's that word again; "heavy". Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the earth's gravitational pull?

8/23/2006 11:22:11 AM
meh. this will probably sound like the ghey pansy bullshit like last album. and the worst part is i will probably buy it, or at least burn it from someone.

8/23/2006 12:02:39 PM
A new Blood Has Been Shed record would be better.

8/23/2006 12:07:20 PM
im really anxious. good news

8/23/2006 12:51:08 PM
fck all the haters, I've got a guilty spot for this band.

8/23/2006 1:04:16 PM
Mike 8/23/2006 12:02:39 PM A new Blood Has Been Shed record would be better. ---------- As long as Justin is still drumming

8/23/2006 1:29:53 PM
as daylight dies = when darkness falls.. they really dug deep for that one.

8/23/2006 2:02:27 PM
hope it sounds more like Alive or just Breathing

8/23/2006 2:21:22 PM
Dude thats such a generic album title. Last album is boring! My hopes are not too high for this album. Same old formula, same crap.

8/23/2006 2:29:57 PM
yeah hate to admit it but its probably gonna suck cause howard in this band sucks

8/23/2006 3:10:16 PM

8/23/2006 4:29:33 PM
tom_will_rise 8/23/2006 3:10:16 PM BLOOD HAS BEEN SHED GODDAMMIT that's right

8/23/2006 5:25:00 PM
what a stupid album title...couldn't they have thought outside the box on at least that part. hopefully the drumming isn't as basic as it was on the last cd.

8/23/2006 5:29:55 PM
i'll get it

8/23/2006 6:04:42 PM
i enjoy this band alot, the last album lacked a few things, but alive or just breathing is 10/10, looking forward to the new band

8/23/2006 7:19:27 PM
wow... after clickin this link, i had no faith that anyone would be nice. so now i see we are all closet kse fans. at least they do what they do well.

8/23/2006 8:15:02 PM
this rocks

8/23/2006 9:20:46 PM
Howard should have stuck with BHBS fulltime. Jesse's vocals fit way better with Killswitch than Howards.

8/23/2006 10:09:24 PM
Seriously gays, you guys talk shit about much better bands, it's gonna suck mad dck just lika all of you...

8/23/2006 10:11:30 PM
Dude, Daylight Dies should sue this gay ass band for taking a similar name...just like Araya wanted to sue Demiricous for sounding too much alike!

8/24/2006 12:34:14 AM
cant fcking wait for it, hope its like the last

8/24/2006 12:43:15 AM
It better not sound like the last one. That shit sucked, fck those whiny ballads.

8/24/2006 11:25:36 AM
I enjoy this band, but god that title sounds like a joke. Are you kidding me? Should have named the cd "A one legged cat burying a stiff turd on a frozen pond", Shai Hulud style as it would have been much better.

8/24/2006 2:20:23 PM
hopefully howard does pig squeals on the new cd.

8/24/2006 5:42:03 PM
gayest album title of teh year

8/24/2006 9:08:41 PM
Wheres jesse?

8/25/2006 2:54:14 AM
Liked them better when they were called Aftershock. And yes, a new BHBS album would be better... x10000000.

8/25/2006 3:26:46 AM
"Liked them better when they were called Aftershock. And yes, a new BHBS album would be better... x10000000." => Aftershock was good, but Overcast is back, so no worries...

Whatev

Can't wait for the new My Chemical Romance, yeah!!!!!
