If you think he's a baritone, you can probably start his high notes at E4, but I actually think he's at least a low tenor.

I'd say low tenor as well though baritenor is also possible. If baritenor though due to his Rollins/Murnoe fused sounding voice then high baritone is a better selection.

One's got to wonder what kind of studio magic Adam D. uses on his voice, especially on the acoustic version of "Willing". Because this guy can hardly sing live at all, but most screamer/singers lack in one of those departments outside of the studio.

Some of the vocal editing on the Times of Grace is really audible, but with the stuff on the newest Killswitch Engage album it's not as obvious. He also mentioned in an interview that he's become better at singing and screaming so that he doesn't lose his voice, which is what would happen often at live shows in the past.

And even now he probably does keep better control of his voice in the studio, since he doesn't have the crazy atmosphere of a live metal show.

You sure those Times of Grace low notes weren't Adam D? because he sang a lot there, Jesse would mainly cover the upper octaves.  But you're probably more familiar with the two's voices than I am.

I actually agree, Adam D is definitely a baritone based on all of his singing parts in Killswitch Engage's stuff, and I think that he also sings lower notes in the Times of Grace album as well. I can distinctly remember parts where he traded off vocals with Jesse, he would sing a lower part and Jesse would come in with his higher rougher voice.

Yes, you're right! Those A2 are sung by Adam D. I'm just waiting to collect Jesse's notes from Seemless to fix the OP.

Well, sorry, but I've seen multiple online sources as well as books that define E4 as high for baritones. 
Besides, being ignorant ≠ being retarded.

But shouldn't just reading the first post be proof enough that it's not the case here?

I also think Until the end of Days is Adam D. The End of Eternity actually is Leach though (Saw him sing that part live and the tone doesn't sound like Adam's). There's a B2 in the Acoustic version of Willing (Though it's one of those boring first syllable notes).

The low notes from Fall From Grace are also Adam. He sings the lead vocals in that song apart from the high notes in the chorus, that's Jesse  Very Happy
