Fitting Howard is in the chorus, considering that Jesse was in the chorus for Take This Oath when Howard took over.

Not so sure that's Howard's voice in the song; I've listened to it several times now, and I personally think it's just Jesse singing at a different register.

This feels just like 7 years ago when I fell in love with "Alive Or Just Breathing".

Well, then I agree good sir.

Jesse is my favorite because Jesse was on the best record they have (IMO) to date.

HoJo is totally in that chorus
I wish he was on the whole record, no disrespect but like I've said before, for me it's HoJo or bust. Reading their Revolver interview it became pretty clear that his diabetes and what seemed like being tired of touring for 10 years really got to him.

It could be, they just did a Revolver interview and said they still talk to him. Also surprising was that they said the record was actually finished musically, but Howard hadn't completed vocals.

I get that people love Howard Jones...but those people who prefer him over Jesse weren't around when Jesse was singing for them. Such a better frontman. Such far more powerful voice. The best KSE is Alive or Just Breathing. Howard should have stayed in Blood Has Been Shed. Cannot wait for this record. I wrote this band off when I heard the radio edit for Resident Evil. Jesse being back means Ill be buying their new record and will see em again for the first time since 2003.
I have loved Killswitch Engage since 2000, ie. before Howard. And I love Howard, so your statement is debunked.

Jesse's great, and I was one of those that listened to KSE in the Jesse days...but I'm not sure saying Jesse's voice was more powerful is a valid statement. The first tme I heard the redone Fixation on the Darkness with Howard...I peed a little. Howard's voice is pure power. But I do feel like when Jesse sang, he brought the words to life better, whereas Howard just seemed to sing the words. If that makes sense. Maybe that's what you were getting at?
I agree and disagree with this, Jesse is great, but he and Howard are two different singers. Howard's voice is big, he's unbelievable live, he's the performer, the frontman, everything bands want. Jesse, has a great voice, but is a tad iffy live, especially when KsE started. He's better now, but compared to Howard, there's just no comparison. I've loved KsE since 2000 and when Jesse left I thought all was gone, and like you, I heard "Fixation" the HoJo remix, and was blown away.

I'm really enjoying the new stuff. I liked Howard just as much, but felt the band as a whole wasn't as strong as before.

Agreed. Just two completely different frontmen. Both worth listening to.
