3 The 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!

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.

The drums on this one are great!

4 Rose of Sharyn

No fancy solo, but with such epic continuation of a great riff who needs one?

Intro riff is so lethal dude.. It takes you by surprise.. And then pitch shift in the middle of the song adds colour, great song

I don't know if its #1 but its not behind my curse

The best song ever! Adam D literally made this song!

Great song, their older stuff was so much more raw!

This definitely is my favorite KSE song! Awesome music and meaningful lyrics. Jesse's vocals is pure epic.

Undoubtedly extraordinary, this song shows the power and the artistic talent of the musicians, this band has changed my way of seeing the music

Really amazing songs, gives me the feels

6 The 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

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!

Amazing track. Jesse Leach's favourite. Definitely one of Killswitch Engage top three songs.

Intro riff when variated with vocals after breakdown. By Adam D. Is great.. And not to mention about chorus.. Perfect

7 Reject Yourself

Agreed it is under-rated... Very positive message and its a powerful song makes you think

Woah, This is REALLY under-rated, I think this deserves a lot more votes

Number 8? I say it should be in the top 3

Best lyrics in any metal song, bar none

8 In Due Time

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

One of the best combo's of screams and vocals

It has more percent than number 11 here. get to 10 or 11

9 When Darkness Falls

One of my favourite choruses! Definitely in the top 3.

Great song. I love playing its verse and chorus.. Breakdown as well

It's the one song the I prefer to hear sung by Leach.

10 This is Absolution

This song is no doubt my favourite of all time. The guitar in this is incredible and same goes for the lyrics.

Vocals in this song are amazing.

Best vocals and awesome guitar

Great song by kse

The Contenders

11 Daylight Dies

this has an absolutely EPIC intro

Great screams and catchy vocals!

12 Fixation on the Darkness

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.

How can this be at 22nd? How can this be? This must be one of the biggest mysterious of

I consider Kse as one of my favourite metalcore bands of all time, and ane thing I love bout them is the way they sshape their songs, I mean melodic choruses and oll that kind of stuff.. Great yr. Fixation on the darkness one of em'

This song is pure dope, probably their hardest track ever. Jesse nailed it. In my opinion Howard wasn't able to keep up with songs like this one or "When The Balance Is Broken", though these are some of the least popular songs from KSE, sadly.

The most original KSE song ever, includes original singer Jesse Leech - Beyond_The_Darkness

14 Holy 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!

Amazing cover! Much more hardcore the original. Awesome guitar and vocals.

Much better than Dio's. End of discussion.

One of the best metal covers ever. Stays very true to the original, but it still feels like a KSE song.

15 Let the Bridges Burn

This song has everything I like about KSE's discography all compacted into just a few minutes. Very diverse in its drum patterns and fairly unpredictable, but in the best of ways. Some of Howard's best vocals from his 3 albums.

16 Beyond the Flames

Haven't heard a lot of KE, but this is my favorite song so far

Song of the soul!

Easily one of KSE best songs. Raw and powerful.

This song is perfect and captivanting, a perfct demonstration of true rock

17 Numbered Days

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.

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?!

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

New kse fans need to listen to alive or just breathing and the end of heartache
