Manage to finally give Unto The Locust a full listen through. I like it as it's own record but it didn't quite grip me as much as The Blackening did when I first heard it. Though it definately has it's moments. I Am Hell is as blisteringly fast you would like for an album opener, the breakdown for Locust is awesome, This Is The End is an instant favourite and Darkness Within is just an epic, life affirming song that's beautiful and heavy. Specifically it's the latter two tracks that let it down for me, there's nothing in Pearls For The Swine that I connected with as easy as the rest of the album and This Is Who We Are isn't the best way to close an album, especially when you compare it to A Farewell To Arms which may be the best album ending song I've ever heard.

So slightly mixed feelings on the whole package, but overall some awesome songs that I really enjoy. Probably my favourite at this stage is This Is The End. Thrash metal at it's heaviest. A lull period in the middle but comes roaring towards the end with an ending that has me headbanging every time. :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:

The most interesting thing, at least to me, about Jesse reuniting with Killswitch Engage was to see how he would handle Howard's songs. Well now we know:




No use in directly comparing Jesse to Howard, they're both different takes on the band. If you have to, then you can say that Howard perhaps had the best all round vocal range and because of it he was very able to cover Jesse's material and he was awesome, but to me, I prefer Jesse's song writing and lyrics than the majority of stuff put out by during the Howard-era. Plus his voice is pretty badass too, and he's only gotten better since the early days of KSE especially his clean vocals. It's just funny reading the comments below the vids because it's just constant fanboys for both going at each other. And those who are saying he's going to ruin his voice again with all the screaming clearly hasn't heard his work with The Empire Shall Fall which he's been doing for a while. Just shut the fuck up and enjoy both.

New Cloudkicker's been out on bandcamp for a while. Great stuff as always, not as heavy as Beacons or the older stuff, but heavier than Let Yourself Be Huge, at least. And free of charge, naturally.

In my quest to find more KSE-esque bands, I've been really digging As I Lay Dying lately.

Real crazy stuff right here.  Catchy, too.  Similar to old Bodom, Wintersun, etc.

Feel free to PM me for Japanese to English translations.

Really liking Unearth, The Oncoming Storm is a great album, was listening to it on repeat today. Hard to thrash about when you have an office job.
