** Which is kind of doubly ironic, given that WWE Superstar Christian is such a fan he renamed his FinishingMove after them.

The band has released five studio albums to date. MTV once called the band one of "[[SmallReferencePools the founders of]] {{metalcore}}", which is actually inaccurate as the first metalcore bands were from the early nineties and consisted of bands like Integrity and Earth Crisis; the band's main innovation was fusing the sound of metalcore with the harmonized guitar melodies of MelodicDeathMetal and clean singing, [[TropeCodifier producing the subgenre which would come to be known as melodic metalcore]]. At any rate, KillswitchEngage are one of the most popular heavy groups around today, and are known as forerunners in the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, along with other popular heavyweights such as {{Lamb of God}}.

Added DiffLines:

* CoverVersion: Of "Holy Diver", originally by Music/{{Dio}}. The music video is notable for being a fairly close homage to the original, but with much higher production values and a clearer plot.


Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag -- The video for "Holy Diver" features the king taking a large bite out of a chicken leg [[RuleOfThree three separate times]].

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}} -- Adam is known for acting a little...out there during live performances.



* NamesTheSame: If it's possible to do so, try not to mistake this frontman with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Jones_(musician) that other Howard Jones]].



* ThePeteBest -- Jesse Leach left just as the band was finding mainstream success. If anybody who isn't a hardcore fan knows of him, it's because of "My Last Serenade", though now he's back to fix this.


Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism -- Generally idealistic.
* SoftWater -- The "Arms of Sorrow" music video, which has a man falling off what looks like a very tall apartment building, ends with said man landing in a swimming pool and apparently surviving in one piece.
* SopranoAndGravel -- Both Leach and Jones utilize the one-man variant.
