The band has released seven studio albums and two live performance albums. This is their eighth studio album and it is called “Atonement”.
“Atonement” comes with eleven songs. Each one is strong and is kicking ass. Fast and thriving rhythms are pushing you through while the melodies will get you going along. Shouted vocals take turns with clean vocals. The album includes quite some rough songs with fast – almost hectic – arrangements, that will cause your adrenaline level to rise. Those songs include mostly shouted vocals. But “Atonement” also includes songs to catch your breath. Slower and calmer songs with mainly clean vocals and melodies to get stuck in your head. Some songs are calmer than others. The balance between rough arrangements and more melodic tunes is perfect. “Atonement” will keep your attention till the end.
Killswitch Engage have a brand new album out. “Atonement” is the name of this album. Whether you like it loud and heavy or more melodic, this album has it all. So go check it out and enjoy. “Atonement” is waiting for you.
