|Bloodmoon I: Ranked|
My personal ranking for the new Converge+ album Bloodmoon: I
Fantastic opener, sums up everything about this project perfectly.
|2||Viscera of Men|
Love the transition from 'regular' Converge in the first 15 seconds before they go all funeral doom on us for a bit and then into the sludgier vibes thereafter. I think this song sounds the most like what I expected from the project, strong Neurosis influence on this one too.
|3||Lord of Liars|
Love Chelsea on the verses, didn't expect such a mathcore-esque track on the album. Brilliant all round.
Didn't like it as much as a single but it's grown to be one of my favourites.
The best song from the album's generally more lacklustre second half, beautiful track.
|6||Tongues Playing Dead|
This sounds like something straight off The Dusk in Us.
Love this one too but it's a bit repetitive, although I do return to it often. Great vocals from everyone here but especially Brodsky.
Reminds me a lot of Hell to Pay, just not as good obviously. Still a great track regardless.
More of an epilogue to the album really but it's nice.
A bit harsh to have this so low down but I genuinely don't love it the same way I do the other songs. It's a nice change of pace on the album though (I will say that I find the sequencing to be pretty much perfect).
Bit of a middle-of-the-road Cave In track. I like Cave In but this doesn't do much for me. Probably should have left this and Scorpion's Sting off the album to make it run a bit better but I can't deny their placements are ideal.
