KILLSWITCH ENGAGE Frontman Ghostwrote Lyrics For Corpsegrinder In SERPENTINE DOMINION

Posted by on August 15, 2016 at 3:53 pm

Last week we finally, finally got to hear Serpentine Dominion's debut single. For those unaware, the band features Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, Cannibal Corpse vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher, and ex-Black Dahlia Murder drummer Shannon Lucas, though now it has come out that the band also features Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach as a lyricist!

Leach talked about his ghostwriting in an Instagram post below, though you can check out the important part right here.

“So I wrote some of the darkest lyrics of my career! I was originally hired as a ghost writer but the boys decided to out me (I’m secretly really stoked they did)! What an absolute HONOR to be a part of this project! This album is just next level! If you would have told a 16 year old me I’d be writing lyrics for George from Monstrosity (better known now for his work in Cannibal Corpse) I would have lost my mind! Still kind of geeking out about it! Head over to Metalblade.com for more details. All hails! The power of these three musicians combined is a force to be reckoned with! Just wait…its MASSIVE!”

Interesting! Considering Leach joined Killswitch again in 2012, I wonder if this had anything to do with his reuniting with the band? Pre-order Serpentine Dominion's self-titled debut here.

Just wait…its MASSIVE! 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼 The origins of Serpentine Dominion can be traced back to 2009′s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, which boasted a line-up that included Killswitch Engage, Cannibal Corpse, and The Black Dahlia Murder. During that fateful summer, Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz made a proposition to Cannibal Corpse vocalist George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher: “George, I want to write you a record.” On the Mayhem Fest tour, Shannon Lucas, who performed with The Black Dahlia Murder through 2012, was tapped to record drums on the album. Between 2009 and 2016, Cannibal Corpse and Killswitch Engage released three albums each, so scheduling time to work on Serpentine Dominion was no easy feat – but when their rigorous schedules allowed, Serpentine Dominion began to come together, with Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach penning the lyrics, which touch on corruption within the government, religion, big business, and other timely issues. Ultimately, though, this debut is a pure passion project; it was written and recorded simply for why musicians get into music in the first place: fun.
