Killswitch Engage is an American metalcore band from Westfield, Massachusetts formed in 1999. Bassist Mike D'Antonio collaborated with Aftershock guitarist, Adam Dutkiewicz who switched to drums and recruited guitarist Joel Stroetzel from Aftershock and vocalist Jesse Leach from Nothing Stays Gold to form Killswitch Engage. They recorded and released their self-titled debut in 2000 and although it was not commercially successful, it attracted the interest of Carl Severson, who worked at Roadrunner Records at the time.

The band went on to issue seven releases with Roadrunner from 2002 through 2016. They initially rose to fame with their 2004 release, The End Of Heartache, which peaked at No. 21 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA in 2007 for more than 500,000 shipments in the U.S. The title track "The End of Heartache" was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2005 for Best Metal Performance. Recorded in three months, As Daylight Dies was released on November 21, 2006 and peaked at No. 32 on the Billboard 200 chart with 60,000 sales in its first week. The album proved to be one of the band's biggest. It entered the Australian albums chart at No. 29. Mixed by Dutkiewicz, the album received mostly positive reviews at the time. Thom Jurek at AllMusic called it "a top five metal candidate for 2006 for sure." Decibel Magazine contributor, Nick Terry, said "To call As Daylight Dies addictive would be an understatement. That it outdoes its already impressive enough predecessor could almost go without saying."

A year later, the album had sold more than 500,000 units in the US. The album's first single, "My Curse," peaked at No. 21 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and is featured in the video games Sleeping Dogs, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Burnout Dominator and Burnout Paradise. The song "Arms Of Sorrow" peaked at No. 31 on the same chart. The band has sold more than 4 million records in the U.S. and has been considered notable within the New Wave of American Heavy Metal and has also been considered one of the earliest leading forces of the metalcore genre.
