We’ve been listening to Converge’s new album for a couple of weeks now & you know what? It’s a killer. Absolutely one of the most ferocious, gnarly & beautiful albums you’re gonna hear this year. Guaranteed.
And the good news is that you too can now grab yourself a listen to the album IN FULL as we just received news this morning that the record label are streaming it over at Youtube prior to it’s October 8th release.
This album is pure, untrammeled Converge, Converge & nothing but the Converge. No special guests, no collaborators, no nuffink cept the band themselves on smokin’ hot form.
Jakob Bannon, who fronts what is considered to be “one of the most ground – breaking and influential metal / hardcore bands of all time” sez:
“All of our albums are emotional but I feel this is our most potent album to date,”
“Success to me is creating something that’s moving and fulfilling and I truly feel both of those things when I listen back and experience this album from start to finish.”
Yuup, moving, fulfilling & emotional gnarly ferocity. If this sounds like it’s up your street you should consider pre-ordering the new album by going here RIGHT NOW. Oh ok, after press play on the embedded video:
I know this will be particularly good news for some of my Tumblr chums who were seriously struggling with the moral dilemma of whether to hop on yesterdays leak of the album or not. Now they, like you, don’t have too.
