Former KILLSWITCH ENGAGE/current SEEMLESS frontman Jesse Leach has joined forced with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz in a new project called TIMES OF GRACE. The group is currently in the studio working on its debut album for a 2009 release. Leach wrote in an online posting, "We have two songs to go and we will be finished with all of the vocals. Adam has taken lead vocals in three songs as of yet and he is doing a great job! We also worked on a track yesterday that is so epic we trade vocals and do two different melodies at the same time. This album went from a melodic metal album to an epic mix of meta/rock/pop/shoe gaze and punk. So all of your metal expectations will be incorrect, we are pushing genre boundaries. I am so proud and honored to be the other half album/project. At the rate we are going after the record label gets the finished album and we get everything lined up, I assume we will see a summer 2009 release. You think you know, but you have no idea this album runs the gamut of: sweet quiet singing with mellow guitars and piano to energetic melodic punk/hardcore to emotive power pop/rock to sludge and metal with touches of death/goth to trippy shoegaze. This album sees the both of us doing things we have never done and we both bring a bunch of diverse vocals. In fact, yesterday I did the most brutal screams I think I have ever done, I was literally shaking as they came out of my stomatch. Ha ha. And then I did the most mellow deep quiet dark vocals with a couple of tracks of whispers to give ambience."
