LOVE… is a way of feeling
LOVE is a way of feeling less alone
So what’s all the fuss about?!?


LOVE: the paradox of needing

I know what I stand for; I STAND FOR ME!!!

I’ll wait for the night to come
So far, suicide at home
For I’m not the man you know
This love it’s about control

Know the chosen ones ARE HERE!

I’ll wait for the night to come
So far, suicide at home
For I’m not the man you know…

F*#K YEAH: Killswitch Engage Welcomes Back Former Singer Jesse Leach

DO YOU SEE THIS PICTURE RIGHT ABOVE? This is the official 2012 Killswitch Engage with former and newly appointed singer Jesse Leach.

I don’t know about you, but I am pumped for the new album that they are working on and the tour that will follow. I’m excited mostly because Jeese left the band before I was able to see them live when he was still around but second chances sometimes do happen. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Howard as their singer and he will be missed as their frontman but something about Jesse being back brings a wave of fresh air back to a band thats been pretty much dormant for almost two years.

Last time Jesse played with KsE 3/19/10

The band explained that Leach auditioned for the role he once called his own and blew everyone away. “After much deliberation and careful consideration, we are pleased to announce that Jesse Leach has rejoined Killswitch Engage,” the gents said, in an official statement. “Our job was to find the best person to fill Howard’s shoes: a decision based on talent and not familiarity.

“Truth be told, Jesse blew us away in auditions. The room seemed charged with electricity. He commanded both new and old material, and proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he wanted to do this. The choice became very clear and apparent.”

Jonny Craig Using Heroin

If you haven’t seen the pictures yet, Jonny Craig is shown very clearly, holding a spoon and really there’s only thing you do with a focused look on your face and holding a spoon with a lighter.

The next picture that was posted on Monday is Jonny holding a needle, making sure there isn’t any bubbles. At least he’s a careful junkie. I don’t know if he’s skinny normally, but this picture he’s looking really thin, like Trainspotter skinny.

For a full story head over to Under the Gun Review and get the full scoop about Jonny and his addiction. Part 2

Jesse Leach Has Rejoined Killswitch Engage

Jesse has come home. Killswitch Engage’s original singer Jesse Leach has rejoined the band after a month that Howard Jones officially left the band because of personal issues. I’m happy and sad about this, Happy to see Jeese back because he was the singer when I got into Killswitch and sad to see Howard not continuing with the band since he was the singer for the past three albums, so he kind of grew on me. But I am so glad the new singer is Jesse. Welcome Back!

Howards Statement:
Well, I guess I will shed a little light without going too deep. As some of you may know, I’ve had a pretty interesting couple of years to say the least battling with some personal issues. One of the low points being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes that went unchecked for years. The rest of the band stuck with me through it, and to be honest they are the ones that kept me going. The whole experience definitely put a scare in me. Recently we’ve all been in writing mode but somehow I couldn’t get excited about the new album and all the touring that would go with it. The guys saw it before I did. In hindsight I now realize that my heart wasn’t in it. I have had an amazing decade with KSE. I love Justin, MikeD, Joel and Adam for hanging in there and standing by me no matter how bad it was. I have so many good memories, and those are the ones that I will keep. Will I be involved in music again? Sure, I have been in bands for a little over half my life, can’t stop now. Until then, get the new KsE album, it’s going to be good. Thanks everyone for letting me try to entertain you, and I wish myself well in my future endeavors. Gone fishin’ Howard

The Acacia Strain UK Tour Dates

Immolation – Providence EP Free Download

Yonkers Death Metal band Immolation have released a free download EP through Scion A/V. This is a little late but thats just how word gets around sometimes. (Thank You Metal Injection Podcast)

You can’t argue with free stuff, especially music and with how everything that happened with Megaupload, you just have to take every legit free release that is put out. Plus even though its free, doesn’t mean it’s shit either. Providence is an awesome release. If this is your first time listening to Immolation, it will definitly make you want to go back and listen to their older releases.—Providence-EP
