While they’ve been around for a while, I have not heard Converge until now. What I discovered in this CD is a hardcore band that fuses elements of thrash, punk, and a whopping dose of aggression. These elements combine for twelve songs of sonic chaos that is likely to upset the authority figures in your life. And while other hardcore bands are introducing progressive elements into their sound, Converge stay the course with heavy hitting track after heavy hitting track. Not for wimps or poseurs (i.e., the Lame Bizkit and Korn(y) fans), this album is for the serious hardcore fan—uh, the hardcore fan of hardcore.
