Killswitch Engage produced my favorite album of all time in As Daylight Dies, as well as some of my favorite songs of all, so, for me, the stakes are high when they come out with an album. Incarnate, their latest record, lived up to the KSE brand.
I’ve really enjoyed the whole album but especially Alone I Stand (what in the world is that time signature? 9/6 time?), Hate By Design, Strength of the Mind, Embrace the Journey…Upraised, and Loyalty (originally released in 2014 as a Game of Thrones soundtrack song).
The lyrics are thought-provoking in typical KSE fashion.
The song writing is rhythmically challenging also in typical KSE fashion.
I just love this band, and Incarnate is a great addition.
Give it a listen and tell me which songs you like!
