One of my personal favorites from the New Wave of American Heavy Metal scene has always been Killswitch Engage. A band that has always matched intensity with both aggression and melody to it’s very finest. That is definitely been the case with the band since the return of Jesse Leach to the line up and the band’s music is only getting stronger because of that. Earlier this year, the band released their latest effort in Incarnate that boasts some amazing tracks like today’s Music Video Of The Week in the song Cut Me Loose. Lyrically the track talks about almost being suffocated or restricted and not being able to grow and the music video the band released definitely portrays that to a T in the performance based video. The video finds the band playing in the middle of the desert which is symbolic of the lyrics and we also see it flash to furniture being set ablaze in the video. We also see a man who when the video goes in reverse, we see that he set himself on fire. The semantics of it could be that fire can represent rebirth or purification as I have learned from the video directed by Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn. Check out the video below:
