Killswitch Engage was very unlucky in that they peaked with their second album. Since AoJB, every album has been a noticible step down from the last album.
Keeping with tradition, KsE 2009 is, IMO, a clear step down from As Daylight Dies. There are no tracks that measure up to the sheer power of songs like This is Absolution, or the title track.
With that said, this IS NOT as bad as I expected.
