Killswitch Engage The End of Heartache: Deluxe Edition (ROG0 Colored Vinyl 2LP
Deluxe Colored Vinyl 2LP (with D-Side Etching) Pressing featuring Newly Remastered Audio and Bonus Tracks Plus Redesigned Artwork!
Killswitch Engage first shook the structure of heavy music upon climbing out of snowy industrialized Western Massachusetts in 1999. A musical outlier, the band pioneered a union of thrashed-out European guitar pyrotechnics, East Coast hardcore spirit, on-stage hijinks, and enlightened lyricism that set the pace for what the turn-of-the-century deemed heavy.
The band broke into the bigtime with their acclaimed 2004 third album The End of Heartache which was Killswitch's first full-length effort to feature lead vocalist Howard Jones and drummer Justin Foley. Peaking at No. 21 on the Billboard 200 on its way to Gold certification, the Grammy-nominated title track is an unabashed monster of a song, different than anything the band had ever written prior. Its epic drive nearly crosses the border into power-ballad territory.
"Rose of Sharyn" is an anthem that's heavy in the most non-traditional of senses, building with dynamic energy into a crescendo with a chorus that is perhaps The End of Heartache's biggest reward. "When Darkness Falls," heard during the closing credits of Freddy Vs. Jason, was the first song Jones ever wrote with the band and falls right into place on The End Of Heartache. With "Breathe Life" he delivers a heartfelt optimism that really makes the track pop with, "breathe life/ for you are not alone/ breathe life/ inside your heart of stone."
