As Daylight Dies [Bonus DVD]

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Ever since Killswitch Engage lead vocalist Howard Jones began alternating his sung voice with his screamed one, the band's depth and dimension grew exponentially. There's plenty of brutal, pummeling death metal, blastbeats and the like, but there is texture in the attack too. This is a band who has been consistent in their approach, and in delivering the goods, but As Daylight Dies is perhaps their strongest moment so far. The songs are dynamite: check the combination of texture, riffs and melody in "This Is Absolution"; by the time they get to the chorus, it's all over; an anthem.

Ever since Killswitch Engage lead vocalist Howard Jones began alternating his sung voice with his screamed one, the band's depth and dimension grew exponentially. There's plenty of brutal, pummeling death metal, blastbeats and the like, but there is texture in the attack too. This is a band who has been consistent in their approach, and in delivering the goods, but As Daylight Dies is perhaps their strongest moment so far. The songs are dynamite: check the combination of texture, riffs and melody in "This Is Absolution"; by the time they get to the chorus, it's all over; an anthem. The unbridled chaos of "Unbroken" reveals that they haven't traveled far from their roots; in fact, they've dug deeper, if that's possible, despite becoming better musicians. "Eye of the Storm" is just over the top. This is the sound of both the Apocalypse and the Second Coming rolled into one. The tight, turn on a dime stops and starts in the verse and the all-out roar of the refrains and the guitar break are the stuff of heavy metal legend. If the cynics don't get it by now, they never will. For the rest, this is the album to come into the tent with. Mastodon may have convinced just about everyone with Blood Mountain, but this is a Top Five metal candidate of 2006 for sure. [Roadrunner issued a bonus DVD edition in 2007 as well.]

    Best metal band today!

    There are a lot of people that will disagree with my headline, but name another band that has the ferocious guitaring, druming, and bass that can also sing in an understandable voice and also scream with the best of them. Every song on this cd is amazing, Adam D. and Joel are two of the most talented guitarist around and they prove it with quality not with guitar solos everywhere every song. They have some of the best rifs of any band ive heard. This dvd edition also has for extra songs on the cd that have either never been out or were on a compolation disk. The dvd has three music videos including the one for the remake of Ronny James Dios "Holy Diver". Now this is where these guys truly set themselves apart from there counter parts. They are hilarious in this video and show that you dont have to ACT like a hard ass all the time and its ok to have fun. A must own for any true metal fan!
