Killswitch Engage

The four bandmembers who came together and created Killswitch Engage already had strong fan followings. Mike D'Antonio (bass) was formerly the leader and principal songwriter of Overcast, the legendary underground metal group. When Overcast split in 1998, D'Antonio sought for a year to find the right combination of players to fuse hardcore and metal with melody. During the summer of 1999, D'Antonio connected with Adam Dutkiewicz, who was the drummer for Aftershock, and Joel Stroetzel, Aftershock's guitar player. Jesse Leach, vocalist for Corrin and Nothing Stays Gold, joined on, and the foursome took the name Killswitch Engage.

Killswitch Engage made their debut by opening for In Flames on tour. The Ferret label heard and liked the combination of brutality, sophistication, and breathtaking originality that the group produced, and signed them. Ferret released Killswitch Engage's self-titled debut album in June 2000 and it immediately began capturing rave reviews. The group lays out its heavy riffs mixed with both singing and screaming vocals that cover a range from low-pitched death growls to the higher-pitched hyena screams. Stroetzel developed a guitar rhythm that gallops, and the others keep up as they combine elements of hardcore and metal in their melodies. They come on with an intensity that does not let up.

During 2001, the band recorded "Numbered Days" for WERS' Nasty Habits live CD, a compilation with bands such as God Forbid, Haste, Unearth, and Poison the Well. Also in 2001, Killswitch Engage signed with Roadrunner Records and started recording their second full album, Alive or Just Breathing, at the Zing Studio in Westfield, Massachusetts. They expanded to a five-piece with the addition of former Aftershock drummer Tom Gomes, as Dutkiewicz moved over to guitar. The album included favorites such as "Self-Revolution," "Just Barely Breathing," and a re-recorded version of "Temple from the Within." Andy Sneap was signed on to mix and master this one in his English studio. The album aimed at even more of the growling bass tone, heavier guitar crunch, and thicker/faster double bass that permeate the music of the band, and it was greeted with high praise upon its release in May 2002 (it even shot to number 37 on Billboard's Heatseeker Chart).

Tours with Soilwork and Hypocrisy finished before the band suffered a setback that June; lead singer Leach suddenly left the group, citing voice problems and personal issues. (He later went on to join metal outfit Seemless.) Breaking up was not an option, but Killswitch were still unsure of their future -- until auditioning Howard Jones that is, vocalist for local metalcore outfit Blood Has Been Shed. The band and Jones clicked immediately, and his charismatic yet menacing stage presence sealed the deal. He made his debut with the band at summer 2002's Hellfest, and the guys stayed on the road for the remainder of the year, both home and abroad, winning over skeptics along the way. Gomes exited the group following their stint on 2003's Ozzfest and he was replaced by another Blood Has Been Shed alum, drummer Justin Foley.

The End of Heartache appeared in spring 2004, debuting at number 21 on the Top 200 and even earning Killswitch a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance. Much touring followed, including acting as main support for Slayer and spots on package tours like Ozzfest and Taste of Chaos, while the band also released the DVD Set This World Ablaze in late 2005. Killswitch Engage further rocked a main stage spot at the U.K.'s Reading festival in summer 2006; all of this activity ultimately led up to the release of their fourth full-length, As Daylight Dies, that November. In 2009, Killswitch returned with a second self-titled album and found themselves jumping onto the Billboard 200. Three years later, the band announced the departure of singer Jones, who was replaced by former frontman Jesse Leach, who made his return to Killswitch on their 2013 album, Disarm the Descent. ~ Eleanor Ditzel & Corey Apar

\/ Exactly. The only time they were nominated for a grammy is when Howard was in the band, but KSE is excellent either way.

A really solid band that I've listened to for over a decade, but in my opinion, Howard is definitely better without a doubt. But they have always rocked and I thank my boy Joe ( J Hood ) for playing them one night when we were partying because they are a great band know matter what.

Howard was still the best singer. Better than Jesse in my opinion

KSE are one of those bands that gets you into the heavier music. One of the first bands I listened to back in 2004; then as my ears and taste for music progressed, I found out they're not excellent. So many more bands are far more talented.

Leech or Jones, KSE's music is still great! with their lyrical depth and unique instrumental style they are, to me, the epitome of melodic metalcore. they are an icon in this genre, my favorite band, and the reason metalcore is and always will be my favorite kind of music. Long Live Killswitch Engage!!!!!

Howard in my opinion was a great vocalist but is always good to hear Jesse.

Influenced to scream/howl and growl just like Howard. Can't come close to him, but would love to shake hands with him for creating a new fan and screaming banshee. LOL

If you are a fan of Howard Jones, check out his new band; Devil you Know. AWESME!

I saw Killswitch Engage at Knot Fest about 6!8 months ago. Leach sang My Curse and it wasn't the same whatsoever. Leach can't hit those notes and doesn't have that same melody as Howard does. Honestly I walked out and watched another band while My Curse was halfway through, it was bad. Killswitch Engage isn't Killswitch Engage without Howard Jones. I highly doubt Killswitch will get om the billboards again with Leach being the front man again, maybe Howard will get his Type 2 Diabetes under cont

I like them both, they both had a purpose. Lets see where Jesse takes them with songs that are written by him. I heard the last CD was mostly stuff from Howard.

Lmfao must have been high as s**t. Glad to see someone doing their research on me. Still won't change my mind Howard ova Jesse tho

@Boogieman 6SIC6 - Don't speak for KSE fans. Howard came later and has moved on to another band. If it weren't for Jesse, and Adam that band wouldn't be around. So how you going to want Jesse kicked out???? I think you need to go back to Seether and nirvana.
