5.0 out of 5 stars Intensity on a different level., 22 Oct 2009
This review is from: Axe To Fall (Audio CD)
I'm loathe to say it, but 'instant classic' is the only real way of describing just how good this album is. What with guest appearances and this being their seventh (or is it eighth?) album, I was expecting something a little more subdued. Then, on my first listen, I realised what a stupid assumption this was to make at the hands of such a band. The word 'subdued' is not in their dictionary.
Converge have always been able to perfectly bridge the gap between absolute brutality, technical prowess and hints of subtle harmony. This album, along with 'Jane Doe' is an altogether different beast. From the drum intro of 'Dark Horse' (the albums' awesome statement of intent) you know exactly what you're in for; an unpredictable journey through the inner workings of highly original, almost conceptual, metallic hardcore. You don't listen to this album. It grabs you by the throat and drags you along with it. JUST BUY IT!

I am no longer a music fan. I am a Converge fan.
