This can’t be a coincidence. It’s like dumping your girlfriend, but then getting jealous when she starts dating someone more attractive and popular than you are, so you start hitting the gym and dressing like him. Come on, man. That’s not good looking out.

If you haven’t heard of The Empire Shall Fall, they are a metalcore band fronted by Jesse Leach. And well, that’s pretty much it. They’ve got a slight progressive tendency with the song structure. They certainly don’t follow the formula that KsE follows of Verse-chorus-verse, etc. No new ground being broken here though, but the music is pretty okay.

And while I’m on the subject, the Alive or Just Breathing-era KsE fans came out of the woodwork recently when current vocalist Howard Jones has been absent from tour, throwing around wild speculations and hopes of Jesse’s return to KsE, and it’s annoying as shit. Am I the only one that thinks Jesse is an overrated vocalist? He’s okay, but I don’t see why everyone’s swinging from his pubes. His screams come across as weak at times and his singing is spotty, but that’s just me I guess.

God damn. He left nearly eight years ago and people still aren’t over it. If you want to listen to Jesse Leach, listen to The Empire Shall Fall. It’s technically better than new KSE anyway.
