My Curse (4:04)

Cover of As Daylight Dies

From As Daylight Dies and 10 other releases

My Curse (sometimes incorrectly referred to as “This Is My Curse”) is a song by American band Killswitch Engage, the song is released as the first single from their fourth album As Daylight Dies. It reached #21 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, surpassing the band’s last breakthrough single The End Of Heartache. The music video was directed by Lex Halaby, who has also directed videos for Hoobastank and Mudvayne. My Curse, along with the rest of the album, has been generally praised by critics but has received substantial criticism for breaking away from the style established in preceding albums, toning down their previously “harder” sound.

    I feel like I've heard 4 different recordings of this song. Seems like a new one from every source, and they're always just a little different.
