CD Review: Times Of Grace Debut "Broken Man"

Heavy Metal rockers Times of Grace are releasing their Roadrunner Records debut "The Hymn of a Broken Man." The duo consists of Killswitch Engage member Adam Dutkiewicz who handles the music and former member Jesse Leach who performs the vocals. After a few delays, the album will finally be released on January 18.

The album's hard hitting sound begins with the drum-roll of "Strength of Numbers" as Jesse's lead vocals pushes the energy of the song's lyrics. The album's overall theme of fighting back from darkness is spread throughout the album's 13 tracks. The music that Adam produces is an all-out assault on the ears. The speed and chord changes of "Where The Spirit Leads Me" and the power of "Hymn of a Broken Man" are two excellent examples of what this duo are capable of. Times of Grace do show their gentler side with "Until The End Of Days" and the acoustic "The Forgotten One." The album closes with their most mainstream rock song "Fall From Grace."

The band will be on tour beginning in February as they cross the United States and back. Visit the band's website (timesofgraceband.com) for a complete list of tour dates, videos and more.
