The original release of this album was, to put it bluntly... Poorly produced, although the material in the songs was some of the best Converge had ever produced.
Now repacked, remixed and reissued, does the new CD cut it above the original release?
The answer is an emphatic... Yes!
Judging solely on the pre-release track, the remastered 'Conduit', the difference is staggering. This album has been refined to the level of their later releases (Jane Doe and You Fail Me), however, none of the original character has been lost.
A classic for a new era.

Having seen Converge at ATP in March 04, I made this album one of my main priorities. I was taken with their visceral yet cerebral attack, but this album left me disappointed. There just doesn't seem to be the same ingenuity on here as 'Jane Doe', or the same drive as 'Petitioning the Empty Sky'. It seems like it's been a bit of a struggle to put this album together, with most songs seeming to be a bit forced rather than natural, and the muddy production by Today is the Day's Steve Austin (Today is the Day fans will know where I'm coming from on this one) doesn't help matters.
That said, there are some redeeming features on the album, and of course there is the occasional riff which satisfies, but in short you'd be better off getting Jane Doe, or sitting tight and waiting for You Fail Me, which is set to be a belter.

This CD is basically an extention of all the good, later stuff on Petitioning The Empty Sky. However, it is a lot heavier and a lot creepier. There is something really scary about Jacob Bannon's vocals, and it makes me poo my pants.
The thing I like best about this album, right, is that although this band have obviously become more popular since the release before this, they have decided to go even heavier than the preceding release, which is not only brave, it's virtually unheard of in most alternative circles. But it doesn't just get heavier - it also gets more musically inept and more engrossing too. Now, we all know of some bands that try to get heavier for the next release; Slipknot spring to mind. But, I tell you what - Slipknot will be forgotten and disappear way before this band loose any musical cred or durability. This band wrote the book for extreme underground stuff... and they seem to have written it in blood and, ermm... wee, I suppose.
Stand out tracks; The High Cost Of Playing God, and Year Of The Swine. Why? Christ knows. They're just especially awesome, I think. The sleeve is amazing too. Highly disturbing.
Look, put down that damn Slipknot CD, and buy something heavy in a proper way. Forget the 'Boy Bands' and get into 'Metaaaal'.

HASH(0x8e8eee28) out of 5 stars Forever has finally crashed and it's here to kick your ass! 23 Mar. 2005
By 123nick456789 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To the Converge enthusiast, this CD is a godsend. I am a monstrous Converge fan, and in my opinion, their weakest album has always been When Forever Comes Crashing. The frustrating thing about WFCC is that you can tell the songs are good (especially when they play them live), but the recording quality SUCKS on the original CD. In fact, the demos released on Unloved and Weeded Out from WFCC are far better than the corresponding studio recordings.

So let me explain to you why this CD is worth buying even if you already own the original WFCC. These songs were re-mastered VERY well- they're much crunchier and more aggressive. The drums and bass are more pounding and ferocious, while the guitars still sound like they could flay the flesh from your body. I have been listening to this CD pretty much non-stop for the last 24 hours since I bought it, and I really feel like Converge has given us a chance to hear this music the way it SHOULD have been captured the first time. These are some of Converge's most aggressive and creative songs, and they finally sound GOOD.

In addition, all of the artwork is brand new (pages and pages of it), and created by Aaron Turner of Isis. Although I prefer the original interior artwork of the skulls and gold embossed ink, the slipcover is just bad-ass.

Bonus song as well- the demo version of "bitter and then some" from Jane Doe. it's good stuff. Best song on the album- "Towing Jehovah". Holy crap is that one good.

Bottom line- Converge fans can't pass this up. And the CD is finally a good jumping on point for new Converge fans as well.

HASH(0x8e8eee7c) out of 5 stars converge seem like noise . . . 24 Oct. 2005
By Insert Pen Name Here - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If I were to have bought this record when it was released in '98 I would have dismissed it as utter shrieking garbage. Of course, back then I thought Pantera and Slayer were the only two effective extreme metal bands. This is the third record that I purchased of from this eclectic act and I was a little hesistant, but I was floored by Jane Doe and You Fail Me so I was willing to take the risk. With excellent career acts, (aka: bands that record more than one masterpiece in their career) I have theorized that the earlier you go in a band's career the more basic and homogenized their sound is. This, their second album is a totally refreshing piece of musical genius.

After purschasing what I thought up until this point was the greatest hardcore record ever, Vision of Disorder's "Imprint" I have been searching for years to find a band which encapsulates that brilliance with every record.

When Forever Comes Crashing is that record. Eclectic, surprising, twisting, and contorted sounds come out of two guitars, bass, and drums and meld in to this sinister mix which forces me to listen. It takes a while to really appreciate the genius of such diverse musical elements all intermingled into one song, but when it does I can honestly say this is the best extreme metal record I own. All these songs would have worked great as insturmentals, though Bannon's shrieks (which I can't follow, even with the lyric sheet) do add a sense of urgency which overlays this record perfectly.

HASH(0x8f29ecc0) out of 5 stars MY favorite converge album. 30 Aug. 2000
By brent besch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
even though petitioning the empty sky seems to be the favorite of most, my favorite converge album is definitely this one, when forerever comes crashing. noisy yet technical guitarwork ala rorschach, fast drumming, and plenty of psychotic vocals. this album may be hard to get into at first due to the insane vocal stylings of jacob bannon (coupled with the fact that in many songs he has tons of effects added to his voice) but after awhile, they really grow on you, and the aggressive chaotic music is some of the best out there. fewer emotional breakdowns on this album, but there is an all out melodic song (ten cents) to provide some depth. all in all this album is just pure innovative chaos, not for the weak-hearted. and if these guys ever come near you, i highly suggest seeing them. they rock hard live.
fans of converge should check out acme, cave in's older material, and barrit, if they haven't already.

HASH(0x8e6a6120) out of 5 stars It's Converge, What Else Needs To Be Said? 23 May 2005
By Chris Conlan (BreakingCustom.com) - Published on Amazon.com

Review by Mike Watson:

The long awaited Converge reissues have FINALLY surfaced, and Converge fanatics nation, and even worldwide are rejoicing as there is even more need to own Converge merchandise. The newly re-done CDs have been given new life through the mastering genius of Godcity Studios and the brilliant art-work of frontman Jacob Bannon. The initial records of both albums, although ground breaking and amazing albums, were both fairly poorly recorded and mastered leaving fans with an unquenched thirst for the clear quality of the music.

Converge has quenched that thirst and more with the newly re-released albums. Both albums have been given complete new life and sound astonishing compared to their original releases. The sound quality on the re-issues is leaps and bounds beyond the original pressings, making the albums far more enjoyable and easily listenable. The most noticeable difference is on Petitioning the Empty Sky. Petitioning was originally recorded fairly empty and powerless, the re-issue however blows the listener away, re-mastered in a way that things in-audible on the original release are now made very apparent.

The Converge re-issues are an absolute must have for any Converge fan.

HASH(0x8e6a62d0) out of 5 stars metal to the max 19 Jan. 2006
By t-diggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the qunitessential metal albums of all times. If youve come here you most likey already know about Converge, and you've probably heard Jane Doe and You Fail Me and think they are horrific slabs of perfect death metal thrash meets hardcore in a pit match. If you agree then you rock. Basically Converge has been my favorite metal band hands down since they released Petitioning the Empty Sky. The Halo in a Haystack (or Caring and Killing) was great but was gently riding the lines between hardcore from that time and metal circa the height of Slayer. Petitioning the Empty Sky found the band growing comfortable with their death metal sounds and one upped Slayer with both speed and technical chops. When Forever Comes Crashing arrived, it was literally the birth of a new kind of metal. They took their styles and formed them into a huge wrecking ball of death metal, hardcore, emo (the original screamy kind) industrial and thrash and took the metal world by storm. No longer much of a hardcore band (other than values, oh and You Fail Me revisits some of their hardcore punk musical styles) this cd just shreds. It takes paint of the walls. It sonically removes earwax buildup in your ears, and if you sit too close to the speakers at high volume, it may make you poop your pants. Tempo changes that are just not human (see The Dillinger Escape Plan for a band that found lots of inspiration in Converge) lead into utter controlled (barely) chaos and then locks in to a most crushing stomping riff. All the while every band member hold on to the reigns and never letting go while Jake Bannon howls the most unearthly screams this side of Hell. He must have a gifted voice box or he gets laryngitis every few weeks. I just cant believe a person can make those sounds and not be hurt by them. On top of all this sonic death and mayhem comes some of the most poetic lyrics you will ever hear in a metal song. From the start, Jake has written great lyrics, lots of talk of angels falling, love crushing you, no hope, no light to be found. All very richly written and sure to make many a an angsty teen feel at home. If you need a preview, check out "Conduit", "My Unsaid Everything" or "Year of the Swine" Though you'd be hard pressed to find a bad song (Not including their emo attempt "Ten Cents" which actually has really nice guitar work reminiscent of their old stuff, but Bannons voice only works good like that when he balances it out with the vocal cord shred that he is so good at.) And if you are new to all of this Converge business, do yourself a flavor and please pick up Jane Doe and Petitioning the Empty Sky and You Fail Me and while youre at it, get their first release Caring and Killing. They even have a few split EPs with other bands where they completely shred, and look for a cover of Black Sabbaths "Snowblind" on Hydrahead Records.....I hope you enjoy...
