Killswitch Engage Share Tabs for Unheard New Song, Fans Cover It
After announcing their new album, Atonement, and debuting "Unleashed," the opening track, Killswitch Engage have shared the guitar tabs for the chorus of another new song, "I Am Broken Too." While the track remains unreleased, fans have given us a glimpse of what it may sound like, uploading their cover versions to YouTube, which can be heard below.
It's all part of a contest. On Twitter, the band wrote, "Joel wrote out the tabs for the chorus of 'I Am Broken Too,' so how about we have a little contest? Grab your guitar, camera, and post your interpretations to @YouTube before you can hear how WE play it for a chance to win a prize bundle!"
As expected, there's some variation in the results. Overall, most of the covers we've gathered take the same approach with the rhythm riding a relaxed mid-tempo while the lead effuses mournful beauty.
Listen to this one and let's move on and compare.
Now, let's switch it up with a high-energy kick. This one has a bit of a pop-punk feel, anthemic and refreshing.
Look at this overachiever! He recorded both guitar parts, bass and drums. There's only one thing that matters though — how accurate is it all? We'll find out soon enough.
We finally have someone with a sense of theatricality. Unleash your inner Adam D. and let it rip!
Nice shirt, kid.
