Album Review

With the 2001 release of their fourth official studio album, Converge has put the final sealing blow on their status as a legend in the world of metallic hardcore. A relatively logical extension from the chain of events that led from Halo in a Haystack up to their split LP with Agoraphoric Nosebleed, Jane Doe seems completely watertight and flawless. Their churning, chaotic guitars are more dense and layered — fleshed out. Jakob Bannon's vocals seem somehow even more raw in the right places, more beautiful and ethereal in the others. Rhythms are as hectic and ADD-driven as ever, ripping back and forth, locking into mindless grooves, and then blurting back out in a structured mess. Experimentation with texture and mood unravels itself throughout the 12 tracks, yet maintains some cohesive element of undefined focus. Throughout all of the morphing and movement, some element of feeling remains, insisting that this album is an experience — an encyclopedic envelopment of so much at once.

Customer Reviews

Stunning.

Converge are one of the few bands that make me lost for words. How can any piece of music be as intense as Concubine? The title track is utterly devastating, a piledriver to the heart, complete desolation, hopelessness. How does Jacob Bannon manage to make those sounds with his throat? The guitar work is insane too. If this sounds hyperbolic, well, that's the only way you can talk about Converge. Buy it and see.

I was so very wrong!!!!

Ok, I first came across Converge on a metalfest DVD where they played concubine. At the time I was listening heavily to Eighteen Visions and From Autumn to Ashes among others and then 'they' came on. I'd heard a lot about Converge and was intrigued. It's fair to say I missed the point completely and found it almost amusing?!! I was so very wrong. A bit older a bit wiser and I can now see Converge for what they are. ORIGINAL, EXCITING, EXPERIMENTAL, COMPLEX and most importantly TRUE. I can't believe I didn't buy this album before. I'm so excited that I've found this band and I can't wait to start discovering where they came from before this and where they went afterwards.

Wow, that's insane

At first i was a bit unsure if these guys were any good, i first listened to the no heros album and was not overly impressed, but when i heard this woz the album to check out i was amazed. Concubine is so in your face, i love crazy screams and this is THE album for it
