Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach Says New Times Of Grace Will Have “No Metalcore Sound”


The instrumental versions of about six new Times Of Grace tracks have been demoed according to frontman Jesse Leach. He and his Killswitch Engage bandmate Adam Dutkiewicz continue to push ahead with progress on the effort, though they aren’t sure if it will be a new album or EP. Leach recently told Lithium Magazine:

“I have four instrumental demos on my phone right for a new EP or album. We don’t know yet. And he [Adam] just told me yesterday he’s got two more.

Adam’s on a writing binge right now. He’s sort of the grandmaster of all that, so he gives me stuff and I work on it, I write lyrics. Then he comes in and helps me with the lyrics and vocals. So it’s a very collaborative process after he’s written all the music. So, as far as I can tell, it’s coming along.”

“You know, the cool thing about Times Of Grace is that it’s another outlet for us, and moving forward with that project, it’s gonna be even more different from Killswitch. There’s gonna be no ‘metalcore’ sound going on. As a matter of fact, I’m planning on not doing much aggressive vocals at all.”
