Killswitch Engage singer Jessie Leach says their new album "Disarm The Descent" features his best vocal performance to date.
Leach was the original vocalist for Killswitch Engage, and has now returned to replace Howard Jones who left the band in 2012 after 9 years fronting the band.
"To me, this is by far my best vocal performance, much thanks to Adam's guidance and faith in my abilities," said Leach (via Blabbermouth). "I am very grateful to be where I am in life, back in an amazing band with a record we are all excited for the world to hear. Thanks to all the fans for their warm welcome back and their undying love for."
He added that there was a lot to live up to after Howard kept fans so happy for so long.
"The big thing for me, was to prove myself to them and myself that I can sing Howard's songs," said Leach. "That I can handle the material and I could do it genuinely. Where I was feeling what I was singing, so I had to really read the lyrics and make them my own. I feel like after we jammed on those tracks, I was like 'I can do this. We got this.'"
