Interview by Simon Russell-White
As live music continues to pick up pace together we are starting to see what life is really like in this new normal.
Let’s be honest, the last two years was rough and hopefully we all have seen the worst of it, but honestly, who knows anymore right?!
A mark in time is always a cool thing, especially when it’s being delivered from the beloved Massachusetts quintet Killswitch Engage. Enter Live at the Palladium, a set that was captured from the Vaccinated And Intoxicated live steam during one of the gazillion lockdowns endured in America last year.
This set features 20 tracks with full play-throughs of the Atonement (2019) record and the ever classic Self-Titled (2000) record. Singer Jesse Leach is a true master of his craft; he oozes every drip of goodness that comes from being in such a well-established and seasoned beast that is Killswitch Engage.
From keeping sane, to self-improvement, from Iron Maiden stories on the road to talks of a new record on the horizon, grab a cold one, or a warm one if you prefer, and sit back and listen to one of our modern-day metal masters give you the low down on being solid human and listen carefully as he goes into depth about what this world truly needs right now.
What a guy!
