    • I’m not surprised. Reading between the lines of his ‘mysterious’ posts pretty much confirmed things. Regardless, this is good news. He’s a solid frontman.

      I def have some thoughts like yours music addict, but my confidence in it being positive overall is overwhelming. I think what was going on in jesse’s life at the time and his still earlyness in his career led to some fear/poor choices. Look at how deep and focused he’s been into his projects since.

        Sure. I’m as jazzed as others about it. It was just odd how he left (think they said it was “throat problems”) then he had 3 other projects he popped up in.

        If it comes down to it will he ditch Killswitch again?

        All in all, yay for Killswitch. I always like Jesse’s lyrics better. \m/

          You make me want to be a BETTER PERSON. Honestly, I was just really bored and I don’t care about what the 13 people that actually read these comments think ;)

    • So I was on a cruise and totally missed this news (it’s weird not having immediate online access… or should I say, affordable / reasonable access) and I am both happy and disappointed. I thought Howard was great, both live and on the records, even if his lyrics did leave something to be desired at the end. I like Jesse’s voice, but I don’t think he can do clean vocals as well as Howard. As mentioned above, I’m also not looking forward to any Jesus bullshit.
