|Finally Getting Into Converge|
I've always listened to the metalcore classics like Botch, Shai Hulud, Dillinger, Coalesce, Cave In, etc. But I could never really get into Converge. It's been months since I've tried to listen to Converge but I gave Jane Doe a spin the other day and finally realized how amazing it is. I don't know why it took me so long to get into them. But last night on YouTube I was watching an interview with Jake from Converge and he said something along the lines of: "Converge isn't a band for first-level music listeners." I think that statement is absolutely true. Anyone disagree? These are the only Converge albums I have listened to, are the others worth checking out?
You Fail Me
|Converge clicked for me last night!|
|HappyArseDay has got to be the greatest username I've seen on this sight haha|
|Naw. Mines cooler. |
|Nice to hear|
|They're all worth checking out. But I would listen to "Axe To Fall" next. then go back to their earlier releases. Skip their debut, though. |
|Great username, by the way.|
|Nice! Ok first things first, none of their other albums even come close to Jane Doe. That said, you |
can check out their two latest LP's, No Heroes and Axe To Fall, and also their "Pre-Jane Doe" stuff,
like Petitioning The Empty Sky and When Forever Comes Crashing.
A new Converge fan is always reason to celebrate!
|I think Axe to Fall is better than Jane Doe by just a bit, haven't listened to PtES or WFCC enough yet to rank them, but I think they'd be below Jane Doe but ahead of YFM and No Heroes. |
But every album (except their debut, so I hear) are pretty great, so yeah, check them all out.
|Axe to Fall and Jane Doe are the only the only albums by these guys that I like. With that said, they're both 4.5-5 for me.|
|Listen to No Heroes first. That one's probably the most accessible and then Jane Doe then Axe To Fall, When Forever Comes Crashing etc.|
|Axe To Fall is the easiest to get into, so you moght want to listen to that next.|
But what the hell, just listen to their whole discography.
