The metalcore group Killswitch Engage has a highly anticipated new album coming out this year and now their label, Roadrunner Records, has finally lifted the veil a little on this release. They have announced Disarm The Descent as the title of their sixth album. The 12-track output is due out on April 2nd via Roadrunner and is the follow-up to their 2009's self-titled release. You can see the tracklist below.

The first single, titled "In Due Time," will be made available digitally on February 5th and the album pre-orders will kick off in early February, with more details to be unveiled.

Disarm The Descent is the band's first album with original singer Leach at the vocal helm since 2002's band classic Alive Or Just Breathing. Leach returned to the band in January 2012 after a decade-long absence.

Jesse Leach said about the new album: "It is with a grateful spirit that we prepare for this record's release. From the music, to the lyrics, to the artwork, we are all proud of what we have accomplished. To me this is by far my best vocal performance, much thanks to Adam's guidance and faith in my abilities. I am very grateful to be where I am in life, back in an amazing band with a record we are all excited for the world to hear. Thanks to all the fans for their warm welcome back and their undying love for Killswitch Engage."

    Yeah, I’ve preordered just to support KSE. First album I’ve purchased in a really long time. I still can’t wait for it to leak so I can have it. Both my wife and I are like little kids waiting for this.

    This album is gonna be fucking insane…ive never been so anxious for any other album release! Jessie and adam are the best duo in metal!

    The wiki page has all of the times for the songs up. Maybe it’ll leak shortly? Fingers crossed.

    its not on getmetal yet and there normally first


  • March 20, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    As far as I can tell it looks like the next major metal release.

    You’d think it would leak soon since it comes out in 9 days in certain places.


  • March 20, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    Should leak by the weekend

    The number of days until the release of this album is inversely proportional to the number of times that I check this page a day. The closer it is, the more I sit here hitting ‘refresh’.

    ^^ DITTO haha, ive checked this pretty much every day since ”in due time” was released. I dont think the people that are’nt KsE understand just how important this album is going to be as far as metal is concerned. AOJB changed everything when it was released and raised the bar beyond alot of other bands reach, im hoping Disarm the Descent will be the same. Now that jesse is back, this band is going to be unstoppable again

    amped for this wasnt really a fan when i heard howard wasnt in it but the more i listen the more i like, def going to buy even if i get a link first, i think triviums new album end of summer will be the biggest release this year

      I totally agree with the Trivium statement. :D

      Uggh….dude…..ben….your post bums me out on so many levels.

      ben: “i think triviums new album end of summer will be the biggest release this year”

      It seems that you spelled “piece of garbage” wrong…it looks like “release”, maybe it’s my screen?

      Trivium is…just awful….Terrible!

      ben: “wasnt really a fan when i heard howard wasnt in it”

      Jesse was in the band before Howard and Alive or Just Breathing is their best record…Howard was good. Jesse is GREAT.

      It sounds like you either
      A. Never heard Alive of Just Breathing
      B. Somehow Don’t Like It
      C. Thought it Was Howard
      D. Listened to so much Trivium that you forgot.

      Gimme the leak, gimme the leak!


      • March 22, 2013 at 8:40 am

        To be fair mate, a large portion of KsE fans have not even heard of the band until My Curse was released as a track on Guitar Hero 2. They only ever knew Howard, thus I blame them for not checking out the earlier albums! >:(


      • Ben
        March 22, 2013 at 11:14 am

        Yeah I have heard just preffered Howard is clean vocals are so good and I did prefer his screaming,and still do tbh but from what I’ve heard of this do far still kicks ass but maybe not as much as it would if Howard still there

    Sorry but some of you guys are really delusional. Isn’t it obvious with the whole Time of Grace album and these 3 new songs that this new record isn’t going to be a classic? Everyone is spouting that this is going to be a landmark album are just drinking the kool-aid.

    Times was average with a few good songs. In due time is good. A new awakening is good. No end in sight is forgettable. You guys can’t spot the trend here?

    Now let’s talk about Jesse. Alive is a classic modern metal record. All his solo shit was awful. His voice on Alive was raw and hungry. Now go throw on the acoustic version of Willing on the Times record. YOU LOVE THAT FUCKING AUTO TUNE? FUCKING YUK!

    His voice is weaker and like all the past 3 records Killswitch records are processed through the pro-tool make a record program.

    All that said some Killswitch is better then no Killswitch.

    Here is an honest review of what Killswitch is today.


  • March 22, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    Jesse is fine live performer and his voice is darn good. All the talk of how bad he is just comes form bitter Howard fans. And Seemless and The Empire Shall Fall are great bands.


    • Bill
      March 22, 2013 at 5:51 pm

      I’m not bitter. But here’s the difference. Howard singing Jessie songs live = sounds like it should. Jessie on Howard’s song’s with big clean vocals = Bad karaoke. If you don’t notice that shit when he sings the end of heartache your just not being honest.

      Like I said Jessie is fine as their front man. But everyone claiming this album is going to be some landmark album after all the evidence we have heard with the new songs and Times of Grace album is either a blind follower who will swallow anything they put out or an idiot.

    this is going to be a “landmark”(who used that word? use a different one lol) album because it’s the first album since a huge shake up in the band(new singer). now yes, jessie was the original but he’s still new in this sense. And for how much the last album sucked, their next effort had to be real fucking good. Thank god it’s just Adam D producing this album and no one else. The overall sound of ok KE II was awful. Nothing sounded big big or full, like how their albums were in the past. So the songs I’ve heard so far I’m crazy pumped for the whole album. They needed a fresh voice, and Jessie brings that IMO.

    I saw them on their last tour of playing AOJB in December and it was glorious ;)


  • Bill
    March 22, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    Like I said the album will be good and that’s it. It will fall in line like everything else since heartache. They know the formula and they crank it out. Over and over again. I’m just blown away that everyone who has heard Times and the 3 new songs are saying how great this shit is.

    Like I said throw on willing from the Times album and just SOAK IN THE AUTO TUNE!


    • March 22, 2013 at 6:55 pm

      Opinions are like ass holes, everyone has one. We’re stoked, you’re not. We get it!

        Break out the cliche dictionary for that reply Einstein? That is about as hack as the end of the new awakening lyrics. I’d rather burn out then fade away!!!! Cue Kurt Cobain somebody.

        All these years of hearing how Jessie was such an amazing front guy then Times of Grace then these 3 new songs. Sorry boys! Just like Matt and his lame cliches would say “Proof is in the puddin!”

        Band stuck in neutral and this album will be just as forgettable as the self titled 2009 album.

        Like I said before. I’d rather have some Killswitch Engage then no Killswitch but this circle jerk worship is pathetic. Like arguing with 15 year olds over a Korn album.

        I bet fucking St. Anger was a masterpiece too!

    When did this become a critic forum? How about we all just wait for the album to leak and then we can all listen and form our own opinions.


  • Chris
    March 22, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Ok. St Anger sucked, period. We all know that.

    The problem is (and this is way too obvious in the MetalSucks review by Axl) that everyone wants to compare this album with AOJB. STOP! Seriously, just don’t do it. It’s not 2002 anymore and if you don’t expect people to change in 13 years you’re effing retarded.

    Why I can’t wait for this album as a KSE fan? The catchy, anthem-like guitar riffs are back with authority.

    Jesse brings a raw, heavy feel back to this band. Everybody that’s a fan knows his cleans aren’t the best, but his screams are leagues above Howard’s. He is the original singer that put the band on the map. His energy alone has brought the band back from obscurity (KSE II was horrible, I agree 100%).

    The other thing that really sells me thus far on the album? SOLOS! FREAKING GUITAR SOLOS!. Aside from the Holy Diver cover, there have been a total of two KSE guitar solos in all of their previous work combined (Breathe Life and Never Again). We already have two on this album and hopefully more. That in itself implements a “new” style to the group and makes it even more electrifying.

    Like any true KSE fan would agree, I guarantee by the time they headline this album stateside that the crowd will be singing along on nearly every song almost to the point of drowning out Jesse. For crying out loud, the guy honestly wouldn’t have to sing a single note and the performance would still be great because the entire crowd would sing all the songs.

      Ugh, why can’t I edit my comments? It’s been 11 years, not 13.

      To add to my previous comment, the band just seems motivated and full of energy for this album. Part of the reason, admitted by the band in interviews, that Howard was released from the band was his lack of heart and devotion to making music. He just wasn’t into it anymore due to a number of physical and mental problems and it was dragging the band down. They were “going through the motions” and the creativity was lacking, as clearly shown in KSE II.

      That isn’t the case anymore. Jesse has re-lit the fire for these guys and I expect this album to be top-5 of the year for Metal. While I don’t believe it’s going to “set the tone” or “evolve the genre” like AOJB did (let’s face it, that album pretty much created Metalcore and will forever be the benchmark, bottom line).

      But I still expect it to be great and above all fresh, which is something KSE has needed for a long time.


  • March 22, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    Bill…Nobody actually gives a fuck who’s saying what about the album everyone will judge it for themselves when they hear it
