KILLSWITCH ENGAGE - weitere Infos zum neuen Album

 

Die Herren von Killswitch Engage haben den Titel ihres neuen Albums, das im November erscheinen wird, enthüllt – das gute Stück wird „As Daylight Dies“ heißen.

„It's the softest thing we've ever done," witzelt Bassist Mike D'Antonio gegenüber MTV.com am Handy in England, wo die Ozzfest Veteranen am kommenden Wochenende die Festivals in Reading und Leeds rocken werden. „They were calling us metalcore for a long time, and now we're going to have to add another word — like emo metalcore. We'll need to create yet another genre, and people will start wearing dresses after listening to this thing."

Natürlich gibt es nichts, das weiter von der Wahrheit entfernt wäre…

„There was really hardly any thought put into it at all," erinnert er sich. „It just came out and we hadn't written in so long that everyone had a lot to contribute. It felt more like the sessions for [2002's] 'Alive or Just Breathing', where everyone was contributing, and everyone had a say. That is more, to me, what the KILLSWITCH style is. But, it is the typical line that everyone gives you — that this is a heavier album — but it kind of is. It's definitely way heavier. There are still the melodic choruses here and there, and there's a lot to latch onto. But it's heavy."

„As Daylight Dies“ ist das Resultat von mehr als eineinhalb Monaten Studioarbeit mit KSE Gitarrist und Produzent Adam Dutkiewcz (Underoath, All That Remains). Dutkiewicz wird das Album, das 12 Songs wie z.B. „This Is Absolution“, „For You“ und „As Daylight Dies“ enthalten wird, außerdem auch mischen.
