Killswitch Engage is a heavy metal band from Westfield, Massachusetts that are known as being one of the
main founders of the subgenre of metalcore.  The band was formed by
former members of Overcast and Aftershock including Adam Dutkiewicz
(drums), Mike D’Antonio (bass), Joel Stroetzl (guitar), and Jesse Leach
(vocals).  This original lineup is best known for releasing Alive Or
Just Breathing in 2002 which is known as the benchmark metalcore album.

After releasing their initial demo in 1999, the band signed with Ferret
Music and released their debut album Killswitch Engage in 2000.  The
album contained the classic songs “Soilborn”, “Irreversal” and “Temple
From Within”.  The album sparked interest from Roadrunner Records
executives who wanted to make the band the next “Pantera”.  Knowing that
they needed help with distribution, the band accepted a deal from
Roadrunner in late 2000.

The band’s second release, the metalcore classic, Alive Or Just
Breathing was their first album for Roadrunner.  It contains the popular
tracks “Fixation On The Darkeness” and “My Last Serenade”.  A music
video for the latter gained the band a decent amount of mainstream
exposure. The critical reviews of the album were highly positive

Shortly after the release of the album, Dutkiewicz moved to guitar and
Tom Gomes formerly of Aftershock took over on drums making the band a
five piece. During the recording of Alive Or Just Breathing, lead singer
Jesse Leach would become discouraged with the recording of his vocals
wanting to make things absolutely perfect.  Leach had always been one to
put a lot of pressure on himself and that pressure would finally get to
him.  When the band began touring in 2002, Leach became depressed and
quit the band through an email to the other members angering a couple
members of the band.  Philip Labonte of All That Remains would help the
band finish out their tour.

I'm sure a lot of people are having doubts right now about KsE. AoJB was absolutely awesome, but TEOH
was fairly emo-ish, and the vocals weren't as good etc. This is good
proof that KsE are still a kick ass band.

It doesn't start off too promisingly though. Bid Farewell always had a
fairly lame intro, and it sounds ten times worse live. Sounds like
something Limp Bizkit would do. But after that serious misstep, the live
show is a cracker. Howard Jones hasn't mastered the art of talking to
the crowd yet, but he has a good stage presence and is a much, much
better singer live. His screams are still good, but his clean voice is
far better then it was in the studio.

The guitars, bass and drums are all super awesome too. Adam D adds a few
cool little extra licks in Breathe Life and a few other songs. For the
most part, he's content to run around like Angus Young in dodgy Denim
cut offs and a Vampire cloak (WTF Mate?). Joel and Mike for the most
part are content to head bang all the time, it's pretty good stuff. Also
the drummer, Justin Foley. He sounded fairly generic on the album, but
like Howard, he's much, much better live, doing a few cool fills and
putting a lot more personality into the drums.

The setlist is definetly worth mentioning, it's really good. Lots of
stuff of AoJB, a bit off TEOH and even a song of their debut album. It
seems like Howard isn't as enthusiatic with the earlier stuff, but it
still all sounds super good. I just wish they'd played Just Barely
Breathing.. Oh well. HIghlights of the set would be Temple from the
Within, Numbered Days and Take this Oath.

The extras are pretty good too. It's a fairly in-depth history of KsE,
complete with some pretty cool old home videos from their early days,
their days in Overcast/Aftershock etc. Lots of interviews from band
members, former band members, other metalcore bands etc.

So it's a pretty solid dvd, I guess the one whinge I have is that it
sounds like the live mix was really, really screwed with in the studio.
The guitars and bass are all super chunky, and I have no problem with
Adam D adding a bit more chunk and definition, but come on, is the crowd
really that loud? Maybe they are just rabid fans. But it's only a minor
complaint. I'd say this is a must buy for KsE fans, there's some real
good stuff here.

Edit: Dropping it down by ten percent. It's a good DVD, but there are
quite a few better ones out there, so, only 82% for this one now.
