why am i so amazed by them lately, these guys are the gods of metalcore, what do you guys think is their best album? Because i don't know which cd to pick up first, i just have some downloads like Saddest Day.

jane doe and/or petitioning the empty sky

Yeah same. I've enjoyed all their albums so far.

Though I wouldn't class them as Metalcore a such.

Tbh I don't know what I'd class them They're like a hybrid of punk/hxc/metal/grindcore/indie-(ish)...and early albums like P.T.E.S have alot of melodic moments(i'm hesitant to say emo)

But yeah amazing band. Great live too
#6
incredible band. to start off, get 'jane doe'. its the first album i got by them.

i remember listening to the title track at the end of jane doe after playing it for the first time, and i was just so amazed by what i had found.
rites of nothing.

Petitioning or Jane Doe


And whats with everyone saying bands like this are grind?!
#8
Jane Doe is obviously their best. Then Petitioning the Empty Sky, Then You Fail Me. Can't wait to see them in November.

um, yes it is.

sry if you havent heard of it, death metal bands that wear girl jeans = emodeath
#9
Jane Doe is obviously the best. In my humble opinion, one of the best hardcore albums to ever come out.

Gomorrah, are you going to the asbury show? it's gonan be so ****ing sweet
#10
Honestly, I haven't really been able to get that into Converge.

I mean, I like them, but I feel like I don't like them anywhere near as much as everyone else. I dunno.

EDIT: It is December 16, 2012. I am on the first page of this ****ing thread. Holy shit. I wrote this when I was 14. And I was so dumb.
I play guitar

Jane Doe is where it's at, but yeah petitioning is a close second. I'm appalled that more kids haven't been turned on to these guys.

Yeah, you fail me is a little different, but still great in it's own way.
#15
converge is probably tied with madonna for best music ever.

and if you think you fail me is boring listen to jane doe or petitioning the empty sky like everyone else said. you probably won't find them boring.

agreed. i have Jane Doe and i give it a listen and enjoy it every so often. You Fail me is also good from what songs ive heard from it. i would call them mathcore, if you ask me. also their drummer is probably the best and fastest i know of.
#18
^Not really. They do have some occasional odd time signatures...but generally I'd say their music is kept fairly simple.

Too simple to classed as "math-core" IMO.

But yeah I agree about the drum work...especially on "You Fail Me", it is truly amazing.
#19
theres a difference between mathcore and technical mathcore. tech mathcore is like Psyopus, DEP and Into the Moat. Mathcore is basically stuff with just weird time signatures which is what they often have.
#20
Yeah but I think its too narrow to class them as just math-core.

They're a fusion of many genres
#22
haha yeah, she sucked at life.

Now for my random thought...Converge pwns DEP. I just feel more of the emotion that converge conveys through their music, I can never really listen to DEP for long at all.

i cant listen to either band for that long, DEP has some sweet songs and so does Converge. But both bands get annoying after a while.

I apologise for ressurecting this thread but it's worth it.

You people don't think this is her? http://www.myspace.com/xbabybeccax http://www.last.fm/user/xbeccax/

Apparently she's one of my "Neighbours" on Last FM. Thought it might be.

recently ive been really, really getting into converge.
jane doe = bloody amazing album

does anyone know any songs that have a climax-type thing nearing as good as those last 2 minutes of the title track?
mahumodo - bythewaters is one of the only ones i can think of right now.

The s/t track from the album You Fail Me is quite similar to the s/t track on Jane Doe. (i.e repetetive, climax etc.)
#35
Wow

XBeccaX? God, I hated her. Who were her little friends? She had like three of them I think. One of them had giraffe in it, I think....Jesus, what a bunch of twats.

Anyway, I love Converge. The only album I have is Jane Doe, but that's good enough for me. In fact, I love Converge so much I decided to paint their album cover on my wall...

I listened to these guys a really long time ago and thought they were bad... but thats because I was in junior high and listened to blink182 hahaha


So I think I'll check these guys out again...

When Forever Comes Crashing (remastered version, because the original had poor production) is my favourite.

Conduit is one hell of a song.
