I tracked down this video from the guys over at Metal Injection (which happens to be THE best metal site on the web). The band is Killswitch Engage and this is the new song off their forthcoming album. It is definitely a different song but it stays true to their sound. They are heavy but have the uncanny ability to write huge epic choruses and clean singing parts which is often imitated but rarely matched in this era of metal. What I like best about the band, besides the fact that guitarist Adam D. wears short jean shorts and viking hats on stage, is the fact that they scream and write heavy breakdowns and stuff yet still are great songwriters. Megadeth had that ability when they were writing really technical thrash back in the 80's and 90's and I think KSE is following up despite the obvious differences in styles. I hope you enjoy this song and the video is pretty cool too.
