On Killswitch Engage's previous two albums, the group delivered the sort of passionate speed/thrash rarely heard since RIDE THE LIGHTNING-era Metallica and REIGN IN BLOOD-era Slayer. With THE END OF THE HEARTACHE, which features new singer Howard Jones, the band takes its signature sound to a new, absolutely ferocious level, combining slicing, neo-classical guitar riffs with vocals that alternate between gut-wrenching death-metal grunts and melodic crooning. In addition, drummer Justin Foley seems to have channeled both Metallica's Lars Ulrich and Pantera's Vinnie Paul, adding enough pummeling double-kick madness to put a smile on any old-school metal-head's face.
