Killswitch Engage first shook the structure of heavy music upon climbing out of snowy industrialized Western Massachusetts in 2000. A musical outlier, the band pioneered a union of thrashed-out European guitar pyrotechnics, East Coast hardcore spirit, on-stage hijinks, and enlightened lyricism. They busted open the floodgates for dozens to follow and their total streams have exceeded half-a-billion to date. The boys have shared stages with some of the biggest acts in the world and have sold out countless headline gigs in six continents. The quintet sharpens every side of their signature sound on their new album “Atonement”. The vision they shared two decades ago crystallizes like never before.
