I’ll let this video speak for itself, however, for reference I suggest you listen to the original track before listening to the orchestrated transposition of “Jane Doe.”  The maker of the video used a program called Symphobia to create this: needless to say, it sounds incredible.

While I’m at it, an 8-bit version of “Jane Doe”

Epic. Sounds like it could be in a Batman movie.

Finally I can be awesome AND sophisticated

Zanders
02.23.11
Sounds much better in my opinion.

Realm
02.23.11
god dammit

klap
02.23.11

that ruled, symphonic covers of Converge should be more common than of Slipknot or Metallica

demigod!
02.23.11
terrifying

It's easy to make a Converge song good; just change it.

Anyway, even if it was an original piece (like, not based on anything or a remake), it would still be just as cool.

Aids
02.23.11
wow this is pretty cool

ffs
02.23.11
pretty sweet but i think it could have been better. the part at around 7minutes for example would have owned hard if it had just been a lone violin or whatever. still enjoyed it though

Realm
02.23.11
lol shut up josh

fr33convict
02.23.11
idk my attention span is too short cause my add kicked in and i turned it off.

Zanders
02.23.11
I admit that I wouldn't want to sit through the original again due to Jacob Bannon's nails on a chalkboard vocals. Once was enough.

Defeater
02.23.11
pussy

02.23.11
easily the best converge song if you can't sit through it your ears are homosexual

Defeater
02.23.11
just like chambered

fr33convict
02.23.11
I love the song. This version bored me so much though. 'twas very epic and yet simultaneously uninteresting.

Kris.
02.23.11
almost exactly like chambered

fr33convict
02.23.11
lol defeater

Zanders
02.23.11
It's not that they are too heavy, it's just that they sound obnoxious and are just not that good overall.

Sorry to derail the comments, just ignore me.

Grignard
02.23.11
The 8-bit was pretty tight

Zanders
02.23.11
Gotta love 8-bit music.

Defeater
02.23.11
obnoxious? lmfao

Captain North
02.23.11
Yeah, I have to say I'm pretty addicted to the 8-bit.

theacademy
02.23.11
this must be what it was like when they first translated the bible

plane
02.23.11
Pointless?

AnotherBrick
02.23.11
wooooooo someone figured out how to make them good

Electric City
02.23.11
i found this really uninteresting

Knott-
02.23.11
8bit > orchestral

sniper
02.23.11
both versions suck

Realm
02.23.11
yah none of these versions make me want to smash in a kids face like the original.

sniper
02.23.11
i'd rather hear this done to a protest the hero song that would be hilarious

Tyrael
02.23.11
Much better than the original...

Spec
02.23.11
No fucking way.

IsItLuck?
02.23.11
if I had the 8-bit version as I was going through Bowser's Castle i'd crap myself

Wizard
02.23.11
Wow, this is why I hate technology.

scissorlocked
02.23.11
the 8bit version rules hard

holy shit isitluck, that would be the best use of it

Captain North
02.23.11
I want the whole album in 8bit.

PiratesWithHats
02.23.11
Wow...

"Finally I can be awesome AND sophisticated"

Wear a tuxedo shirt while listening to this and that will make you the awesomest sophisticated person ever.

SowingSeason
02.23.11
Didn't like this

SowingSeason
02.23.11
the orchestrated version that is

conradtao
02.23.11
meh, sounds like something the sweatshops of zimmer and co would produce

rasputin
02.23.11
both are pretty cool

lukempls
02.23.11
is there no option to hold notes out in this program? it's just staccato orchestra hits the whole time, with some stuff in the background now and again... but if someone does this right it would be amazing.

lukempls
02.23.11
whoever did the 8 bit one knows way more about music, actually. not often you say something like that.

KILL
02.23.11
bad

kingjulian
02.23.11
I heard the 8-bit version a few weeks ago (it ruled) and I'm stoked to listen to the orchestral one.

kingjulian
02.23.11
I like the 8-bit a lot better, actually. The orchestral is way too choppy.

PinkBlackberry
02.23.11
No vocals?

fucking awesome.

patroneyes
02.23.11
yeah the 8 bit is cool

buckfoston
02.23.11
the original wasn't good. the orchestral one is boring and the 8-bit is just retarded...

Spec
02.24.11
Wow this is good.

mutatedfreek
02.24.11
8 bit is cool, orchestral one was very average though.

Puzzles
02.24.11
54 Comments? WTF?!?!?!?!?!?!

RiversCuomo
02.25.11
WTF?!?!?!?!?!?!?! 8-bit version is awesome

morte
02.25.11
what converge's "jane doe" overrated?

Bulldog
02.25.11
this is pr cool

MUNGOLOID
02.25.11
the orchastrated version sounds like the perfect background music for God of War.

Adabelle
02.26.11
I liked this, bare strings though..

Jackie Gleason
02.26.11
The 8-bit is just a shitty guitar pro tab run through a different program.

deathridesahorse
02.26.11
wasn't this a metalsucks post?

hesperus
02.26.11
I think this post inadvertently knocked down Jane Doe's rating a tenth of a point.

MusicIsMyFavorite
02.26.11
8 bit version was way cooler

cleary21
02.26.11
The orchestrated version doesn't do the song's outro justice.

climactic
02.28.11
someones been watching converge's facebook posts

TRMshadow
03.01.11
I like the 8-bit one better as well, for some reason it makes me think of a really dramatic "double dragon"



eyedea420
03.01.11
i came

MopHeadOvMetal
03.05.11
I'm playing the orchestral version and the original song at the same time. Epic...
