Killswitch Engage befinden sich zur Zeit im Studio, um ihr fünftes Werk zu produzieren.

Fun stuff … it felt like old times with Adam D at the helm of the
Pro Tools rig. I finished up the last few bass fixes on Super Bowl
Sunday at Adam D’s home studio. Beers were flowing HEAVY for sure.
Whew, what a relief to be done with my tracks. With the pressure off,
it is now time for me to amerce myself in designing the layout for
Currently, Howard is in Atlanta working with Brendon and Adam on
vocals. It shouldn’t be too much longer now.
Thanks for the support.“
