"The Key" is the first chapter from t... [Read More about Geoff Tate's Operation Mindcrime]

Killswitch Engage

Killswitch Engage rose to fame with its 2004 release The End of Heartache and has been a force to be wrecking with since. The band formed in 1999 with singer Jessie Leach but then Leach left the band in 2002 when Leach was replaced by vocalist Howard Jones. Jones is who I saw singing the last time I saw Killswitch Engage but as time goes by Killswitch Engage found themselves singer-less for a second time in 2012, Leach was full of piss and vinegar to reclaim what was once his sp...
