Make no mistake, Jesse Leach is back. “In Due Time”, the first single off of one of the most anticipated metal releases of 2013, sees Killswitch Engage re-engage with their original singer without skipping a beat. It’s fast and it’s heavy and it’s everything you’d expect and more from the reinvigorated KSE line-up. Leach sounds brilliant and the positivity that he brings back to the lyrics after the oh so dark self-titled record is refreshing.
Elsewhere, Adam D and Joel Stroetzel are absolutely relentless in their dual guitar attack and give a good preview that Disarm The Descent is indeed fast and furious. Dutkiewicz even pipes up to lay some back up vocals maybe inspired by the recent Times Of Grace record he recorded with Leach. Overall the song touches on the magic that Alive Or Just Breathing created but takes it to the next logical progression.
Disarm the Descent is out on April 2nd through Roadrunner Records. “In Due Time” is available as a digital single on February 5th. Pre-order the deluxe edition of the album through Itunes here.
