Show Review: Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, Acaro (Northampton, MA)
12/26/12 at 04:10 PM by Alex DiVincenzo


I've never been known for my memory. It usually takes several conversations before I learn a name. I have trouble remembering what I had for breakfast this morning, let alone anything beyond that. But I distinctly recall the first time I heard Killswitch Engage's Alive or Just Breathing. Sitting at my kitchen table doing menial middle school home work, I put a CD that I friend of mine told me I had to hear in my Walkman and pressed play.

Immediately I was blown away. I was inspired by the uncharacteristically positive lyrical content and loved the perfect chemistry of singing and screaming. The album had a profound impact...[read more]

Saw the show in Dallas... One of the best metal shows I've been to in a while.

Acaro deserves some attention

I love killswitch! Great pictures Alex! I do like seeing Jesse back but I have to think the big Howard choruses will be missed? I don't remember seeing Adam with a PRS before either but it's amazing watching him prance around the stage in his jean shorts....

Howard may have had a slightly more powerful singing voice, but did you peep any of my videos? Jesse was more than adequate. Plus some of the choruses on AOJB, while perhaps not as soaring, are just as good if not better in terms of catchiness, in my opinion.

Killswitch did indeed play Pearl Street before. A benefit concert for Zing Studios severl years back. Once Beloved opened for then then as well. As I Lay Dying was the other band. As a side note, Joel's brother Tyler is also a guitaist for Once Beloved.

Ahh, thanks for the correction. Jesse said he had never played there, so it must have been with Howard. I'll amend the article.

I managed to catch KSE with Jesse at download festival this year & they absolutley killed the 2nd stage, so great seeing him back with them. There was talk a while back of them brining the AOJB tour over here in the new year. I'll be 1st in line to grab tickets for that if it ever does happen but with the new album I can see it not happening.
