‘Alone I Stand’, a brand new song from Massachusetts-based metallers Killswitch Engage, can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band’s seventh album, “Incarnate”, which will be released on March 11 via Roadrunner Records.
Asked in what way the making of “Incarnate” changed him, Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach told RockSverige.se: “I think it initially started out that I had an idea of what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go lyrically. I had a moment where I questioned stuff. I questioned myself as a writer, I questioned if what I was doing was the best it could be, and the answer was no, so I kind of spiraled myself into depression, almost purposely. I purposely put myself into a dark place and started thinking about the bigger questions of life, and from there I started to write stuff I never thought I’d write before and came to self-realizations about how I was raised and what I believe and don’t believe. I’m in a good place now, but I question a lot of what I was raised with and I question a lot of my beliefs. All this stuff that surround how I was brought up, I realized some of that stuff I was just believing because I was taught it and I didn’t really accept it as true.
