Biography

It never ceases to amaze me how the things we initially dismiss, overlook, don't notice can become the most important and meaningful to us and our lives.

The first time I saw Converge was in 1996 with Deadguy, Coalesce and a number of other bands whose names are now lost to memory in a Legion Hall in a rundown part of Buffalo, NY. I'd like to say they changed my life that night ... Read more in Amazon's Converge Store

the first time you finish listening to converge's jane doe you will exhale for what feels like the first time in 45 minutes.
it is brutal, it is sublime, it is the single most passionate hardcore cd i've ever heard. it will make your ears bleed - in the best possible way. there's awesome stuff here from the blistering speed of distance and meaning, to the fury of phoenix in flight and the almost soothing hell to pay.
but the epic title track is for me the stand out song and it contains elements that sum up this cd: complex guitar movements weaving together the raw and the smooth, scrunchy basslines and punctuation drumming ... stoked up by the alternately hard and soft searing screams of singer/genius jacob bannon; and one of the most haunting finales i've ever heard - its 11 and a half minutes of bruising beauty. be generous with the volume controls - your neighbours will hate you but hey that's ok ...
yes, it's hardcore and not for everyone. but even if you don't usually go for this type of music, don't please dismiss jane doe. there's something alot more here that goes very deep, and the more more you listen the more you get it.
by the way the lyrics are pure poetry - you won't be able to hear many of them and their reproduction in the cool cd booklet is fractured and artistic.

So I went out to buy "converge-you fail me" one day, and saw another cd with an amazing cover, which would be "Jane Doe". I brought it home and started listening to it. All I can say is I was sucked in and couldnt get out. The entire album is what i needed. Recovering from a recent relationship gone wrong, Jane Doe had everything. The heaviness and anger. The pain and sympathy. And even though you cant hear too well, the lyrics are just beautiful. And the album name is perfect. Many people have their own "Jane Doe" (or "John Doe" for females), someone they think they know, but really, they dont. The album art throughout the booklet is jaw dropping as well.

This is no doubt my favourite cd so far.

I recommend it to anyone who enjoys metal (especially hardcore, for this band is probably the best hardcore band around) and for those who recently suffured a bad relationship. This album is no doubt inspiring, and nothing short of absolutely brilliant.

What never ceases to amaze me about Jone Doe by Converge is it's ability to impress and attract the attention of people other than fans of extremem music. Even though it is extreme music to an unparralelled degree, this album seems to impress a most broad cross-section of music lovers. I have shown it to fans of metal who've been suitably bowled over, I've shown it to fans of technical and classical guitar music and they've loved it, and I've shown it to fans of indie and they've liked it too. I think that it's because it stands out as something more than just another heavy record - it stands out as a work of art that holds the flag for it's genre, in the same way that Dostoyevsky's The Idiot did for modernist writing and that Casablanca did for the screenplay.
Compared to their earlier albums, Jane Doe is a positively scar-inducing experience. The production here is at first deceptively messy and grating, but soon reveals itself as being a pinpoint balance between extreme cold mathcore and human warmth experimentation, and the individually recorded instruments are powerful beyond expectation. Kurt Ballou's guitarwork here is all over the place in it's ferocious energy, and the coils of Nate Newton's bass strings are time bombs of thumping power. Ben Koller's drums are so over-produced that they sound like The Velvet Goldmine destroying a drumkit with grenades, and Jake Bannon's vocals are matched only in their anger and confusion by that of a new born baby screaming life into their fluid-filled lungs.
The first two tracks are comapnions to each other, and lead into themselves with breathless fury.

Format: Audio CD
I find it difficult to explain why I purchased this album, having never heard a single Converge song before. I was just drawn to them, drawn to the artwork, drawn to their reputation for being hardcore stalwarts. The first listen was shocking to say the least, and I mean that in the true sense of the word ! I was shaking and sweating by the time the 11-minute title track had finished. But succintly, this is a swirling, bludgeoning, ear-splitting work of art. It is as chaotic as it is hypnotic, as beautiful as it is disturbing, and it fizzes with raw emotion, in particular bitterness and disappointment. The whole lyrical concept of the album appears to be the philosophy on the bloody ruins of a relationship.
If you're new to Converge, you have been warned: buy this if you have an open mind, a love of technical, complex music, and a true punk spirit. This album is incredibly heavy !

I can't think of an appropriate way to begin this review so I'll just get straight into it. Jane Doe by Converge is absolutely gut-shredding. Sometimes it will lift you up, sometimes it will push you sobbing into the earth. It may just make you want to drive angrily, but if you let it, it will make you remember. You can listen to it as a music CD sure, but there's listening, and then there's listening. Let Jacob Bannon in and he will make you want to let go of everything that pains you in a roar of blackened syntax, no matter what kind of person you think you are. Jane Doe is a hardcore album. It is heavy, and it is evil. It is honest.
Jane Doe is a tale of loss, of hate, of grief, of anger, of smiles forgotten, bonds broken and of pure undiluted regret.
