3The End of Heartache
This is the best KSE song ever... Howard rocks...
The End of Heartache is one of the best albums ever released...
Damn these guys should win a Grammy to say the least...
KSE forever!
You wait, you miss, you hurt. The mere absence is HEARTACHE. :I
Perfection. This man knows how to sing from his soul. His screams are ear piercing, yet he finds a way to serenade you with his voice of baritone beauty. It's the cure for almost every mood: neither too soft, nor too heavy. Give it a try why don't ya!
The guitar riffs and breakdowns, nothing short of epic.

4Rose of Sharyn
No fancy solo, but with such epic continuation of a great riff who needs one?
Personally my favorite... I pretty much love every song on this album though.
Greatest song ever! Adam just made the song!

5The Arms of Sorrow
Killswitch Engage is my favorite band, I have all of their albums with Jesse and all of the Albums with Howard. I also Have most of the Music Adam D. has produced (August Burns Red, Parkway Drive, As I Lay Dying, All That Remains, etc. ) But out of all of that music I've never heard something as beautiful as this song Lyrically and musically
Beautiful... This song deserves to be no. 1. Absolutely brilliant vocal work, and everything in this song just fits in so perfectly. It's simply amazing, and definitely deserves a higher rating and more popularity.
This song is just so heavenly beautiful. It's like a gift God sent from heaven. It's heavy and melodic, emotional and powerful, it's just THAT damn superb of a song. I totally understand Jesse and why he considers this his favourite Killswitch Engage song. Look at those lyrics! "Imprisoned inside this mind, hiding behind the empty smiles". It's just a masterpiece, AND it sends a positive message. Not to mention Howard's vocals, he KILLS it, especially on this one. The Arms Of Sorrow for the win!

6My Last Serenade
This definitely is my favorite KSE song! Awesome music and meaningful lyrics. Jesse's vocals is pure epic.
I don't know what the hell this song doing down there... It should be first. And their new vocal Jesse Leach is thousand times better than Howard...
Where on earth is Rise Inside and Element of One? They were absolutely ingenious tracks that brought metalcore to a new level.

7In Due Time
Amazing and unique riff with very nice lyrics. Also the cymbals sound great. This is definitely one of my favourite KSE songs and the new album will probably rock as hell.
This is the best song on their new album. This song definitely deserve to be in The Top Three, at least.
Hell yes jesse leach is back and this song kicked ass first time I heard it
Greatest comeback of Jesse Leach...

12Holy Diver
It can't be better than dio's! But it's a damn good cover and they really put their style into it. Much respect to Killswitch Engage!
Epic Tune! Jump on the tiger!
Amazing cover! Much more hardcore the original. Awesome guitar and vocals.
[Newest]The best cover done by any band ever! The mixture of clean and screamed vocals just works.

13Fixation On the Darkness
I was shocked this was not on the top 5.. But this song kicks ass.. A taste of melody in metal does not take away the "metallity" of the song, just saying..
This song is one of the greatest. And it kicks ass so much live in concert. I love the varying scream levels in Jesse's voice, and the death growl undertone in the chorus.
Such a sick song. Can't believe it's not at the top. Also the first Killswitch song I ever heard which got me interested in the band.

30Numbered Days
Can't believe this song is so low. I love everything about this song. Should definitely be in the top 5. I'm surprise 'Temple From The With' on their first self titled album isn't higher as well
My favourite Killswitch Engage song. Everything about it is awesome. The passion in Jesse's voice too... Wow. How is this not closer to the top?!
With a chorus like this, the song deserves to be in the first 5. I mean come on, it's Alive or Just Breathing, their best album.

40Just Barely Breathing
The best KSE chorus ever and one of the most epic and atmospheric songs ever.

The second half of this song is pure perfection.
Listen to sample

41Self Revolution
Song with the probably best chorus ever. I love the whole buildup, great scream parts by Jesse and like said before unbelievably well done clean singing chorus. Also I really love the meaning, Self Revolution is an underrated masterpiece and maybe the best original Killswitch Engage song.
Listen to sample

42A Tribute to the Fallen
The whole album Disarm the Descent is really well done but this song kills it. Jesse nails it with his shouting like screams and then goes for an insanly epic clean vocal chorus that blows my mind away. The bridge with the solo feels fresh and is totally different from the rest of the song. The ending part fades out perfectly and the accoustic part following up just perfectly fits to this modern metal masterpiece. Jesse is finally back, better than ever!
Best song on Disarm the Descent...


43Breathe Life
Why is this not inn the top 10?
Listen to sample

44Still Beats Your Name
The verses are standard KSE but the chorus is EPIC. Listen and wait for it. If you don't start singing along with this, you must be dead
Listen to sample

45A Bid Farewell Listen to sample

46The Turning Point
This is an awesome song, one of the best on disarm the descent. it needs more recognition.
Listen to sample

47This Is Goodbye
While this isn't the best song they have done, it still is fantastic! It's probably the best song off their 2009 self-titled album!. I defiantly think that it should be in the top 20 or top 15 for sure!
Why is this not on the list?
It's Over, Please leave me to Rest, Forgive-me, Let me go!
