No. 8: Killswitch Engage, ‘The End of Heartache’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs
‘The End of Heartache’ from Killswitch Engage’s third studio album of the same name, dropped in 2004 and remains a fan favorite with its soulful melodies, rattling riffs and memorable lyrics. From the moment Howard Jones sings ‘Seek me / Call me / I’ll be waiting’ the track’s infectious vibe begins to take hold.
The song balances aggressive vocals and a harmonious chorus “(Seek me) For comfort / (Call me) For solace / (I’ll be waiting) For the end of my broken heart.’ Even with returning vocalist Jesse Leach singing ‘The End of Heartache’ in concert, fans come alive when they hear this modern classic.
