In 2011 The Hymn of a Broken Man by Times Of Grace was released and quickly became my favorite album that year. The collaboration between Adam Dutkiewicz and former Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach; a real gem of an album that I felt nobody got the chance to really appreciate that year. It was really amazing to hear these two musicians back together again and experience what they could do, especially on the album that pushed the boundaries of metalcore music. The Hymn of a Broken Man was extremely melodic and catchy without having the poppy gang chorus styling of many other metalcore bands. It seemed like not too much longer after this record came out that news that vocalist Howard Jones was leaving Killswitch Engage and Jesse Leach was coming back as their frontman hit the Internet. I was very interested in seeing where the music would be heading with this new announcement. Killswitch Engage fans have been to torn for such a long time over who is the better vocalist. I could never really decide but I will say that The End of Heartache was my favorite album by them, which was Howard's debut with the band. So now we have the original vocalist back with a brand new album. How does it measure up to previous works? Is this just a rehashing of the brilliant The Hymn of a Broken Man? Does the band still have the same punch that it did with Alive or Just Breathing?
