Top 10 Original Killswitch Engage Songs
The Top Ten
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!
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...
The guitar riffs and breakdowns, nothing short of epic.
This is a great balance of heaviness and melody I love this song18 Comments

Played this song a million times on Rock Band when it came out.

this is my favorite song in the world kill switch engage is one of my favorite bands ever
Awesome.. I'm just addicted to this song
Love his vocals!41 Comments
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!
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.
Amazing track. Jesse Leach's favourite. Definitely one of Killswitch Engage top three songs.12 Comments
I don't know if its #1 but its not behind my curse
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
Personally my favorite... I pretty much love every song on this album though.4 Comments
Great song, their older stuff was so much more raw!
The chorus blows it out of the park. My best Killswitch Engage track.
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 music14 Comments
I believe this is Killswitch Engage's best album. I have nothing against Howard at all, in fact I like his vocals a lot, however Jesse does an unreal job on this album. The songwriting is just magic. This song showcasing what these guys are all about.
The two newest KSE albums are my favorites by far. Through the years they've really developed into one of the best bands going around. They've got everything going for them. They continue to show just how good their writing is, and this song is one such example.
One of the best combo's of screams and vocals
This is the best song on their new album. This song definitely deserve to be in The Top Three, at least.15 Comments
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 www.theTopTens.com
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.
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..
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.
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
this has an absolutely EPIC intro
Great screams and catchy vocals!
Agreed it is under-rated... Very positive message and its a powerful song makes you think
Number 8? I say it should be in the top 3
Wow, SO under-rated! The intro is awesome! - cmrnpref
Woah, This is REALLY under-rated, I think this deserves a lot more votes9 Comments
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
Song of the soul!
Easily one of KSE best songs. Raw and powerful.
Haven't heard a lot of KE, but this is my favorite song so far
It is from 'Disarm The Descent'. Try it!2 Comments
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
This song should be top 53 Comments
This is one of their top 5 for sure. More hardcover than most.
Best 30 seconds of any killswitch song ever! very good lotsa shouting but it sounds very good
Amazing I love this song so much, it's great! You should definitely listen to it! My ex told me that he listened to this whenever he thinks of me
Amazing song so underrated
I love this song way too much, I don't know Why... If you are a metalcore fan you will like it also..
Of all the KSE songs, this one needn't be number one, although it need be higher, let's say top 10.
What a brilliant track, and from one of their best albums, too.
Incarnate and Disarm the Descent are their best, despite all of their music being superb.
If we can't break the silence how can we survive. Amazing song and has a great song meaning to it. It's about making society better for the future.
Can't believe this isn't in the top 10 at least
High voice pitch. Why not in the top 10?
Favorite song by Killswitch
Meaningfull and all in all a brilliant track
26?! Nani?! This song kicks ass man!
Awesome song, and even better live2 Comments
Holy sh! T, how is this so low? Have people just not heard it? The chorus is just insane, hairs on end every time, without fail.
Best Song I ever heard in my life awesome scream and powerful lyrics I think this should be in top 3
The best KSE chorus ever and one of the most epic and atmospheric songs ever.
The second half of this song is pure perfection.
The best chorus ever, dramatic lyrics, why is this so low? Jones material is mostly good songs about love.
What... No. 47? How is this possible?
Not from the best album sure but hands down one of my favorite songs from the Howard era of KSE. This is one of the songs where his cleans absolutely shine.
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.
"Building a revolution to heal nations"
Such a beautiful meaningful song
These guys rock no matter what they put out! Awesome.
This song is so amazing! Always & My Curse are my favorites <3 This song mean so much to me. / I am always with you, From the darkness of night until the morning, I am with you always, From life until death takes me / So great and deep lyrics! Should be in the top 5 at least
This is entirely joel's song.. As said by Adam D. In an interview with ug.. One of the greatest song by Kse
Awesome song... Top ten at least...
Best song on the new album by far.
I am extremely surprised to see that no one has shared anything about this song.. Guys you should go and check out this song.. The album is kinda gold certified you punks. !
This is by far my favorite song of theirs. I'm surprised it didn't make top ten, let alone thirty
This song is included on the second album of the volume of GOT series. I can say that is authored by Killswitch Engage. The song was released earlier this year and should be added to the list. The fans can confirm that this is an authentic music of the band.
What? You don't bleed for me is one of their best songs,Best of the band,The vocals were perfect,The cleans were perfect...The lyrics were simple,Beautifully written and perfect... Everything was perfect
One of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, it transitions from harsh vocals to one of the most stunning choruses I have ever heard
My favourite song by them. Needs to be higher.
Very good lyrics, in fact, all the song is very good
Why is this not inn the top 10?
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.
Without a doubt, this is the most underrated killswich engage song. This song is fantastic. Amazing vocals. Beautiful lyrics. This song should moat definitely be in the top 10
55?! WHAT! THIS SONG ROCKS - heavymetalrocker777
Hope is, is one of the amazing song by Ks€ …i still wonder at times that what exactly they played in the chorus part. Hahhhaha.. It's so beautiful
This is an awesome song, one of the best on disarm the descent. it needs more recognition.
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
My favorite KsE song. An amazing blend of melody and aggression.
How come this song isn't on the list? Its one of the most beautiful songs with jesse.
The best song in the new album!
This one one of Howard Jones' best works and should be at least in the top 3
If not #1 on this list seriously just listen to it it has some of the best vocals in Killswitch Engage
Why is this is so low?! Howard's clean singing is gorgeous!
Come on peeps, at least top 10!
