Killswitch Engage: My Biggest Influence | Reviewer: Michael B. Smith (Tyr) | 2/5/05

To anyone whom reads this you may realize somewhere along the line that Killswitch Engage has become and will always be my greatest influence on my life as a musician, a friend, and a brother. Ever since I first heard of Killswitch Engage I could never let go of how amazing their skills as musicians and people are. Despite the changes in members and bumps along the way they held strong and continued on. They have brought a whole new meaning to "Heavy". Even their extremely heart-felt melodics give you the feeling of metal and the life around it. I look forward to taking Aesir, my brotherhood of musicians, as far as Killwitch Engage did! Of course I doubt we'll ever be as well known, but I garuantee that we'll be just as good as well as felt. Aesir consists of Mike Ott[On Guitar], Joe Airhart[On Guitar], Max Smith[On Drums], and Mike Smith[(No relation by blood)On Bass]. Well, I guess the biggest influences on me out of all of Killswitch Engage would have to be Mike D'Antonio and Adam Dutkiewicz. Mr. Mike D'Antonio for his rare skills as a bassist, and from one bassist to another, Mike you take it to a whole new level bringing bass to life. Also because of Mike D'Antonio I wasn't worried about picking on bass for faster play. Not only does it sound awesome, but it shows that the bass is by far just as skillful as the guitar. Though, Adam Dutkiewicz was a big influence for not only the ability to play an instrument and sing/growl/scream at the same time(putting emotion and talent into it), but for how he almost seemed to help lead Killswitch Engage to where they are now. Adam Dutkiewicz was there from the beginning just like Mike D'Antonio and never gave up! The one thing that I will never forget about Killswitch Engage is that they play for the music, for their fans, and for themselves. Not for the money, the fame, the publicity, but for the beauty and talent of metal. That is the real Killswitch Engage, and they make it look and sound so damn good!
