it's on the lower end of Converge closers as far as i can tell (certainly doesn't come close to Jane Doe or Wretched World) but it's a pretty solid track nonetheless

album shaping up to be around a 3.5 or so if i had to guess

if somebody played the first 2 mins of the song to me, I'd never guess it's a Converge song tbh

Really weird intro for a Converge song but it works.

Song is decent.

So far the album sounds like it will be about on the same level as No Heroes, or worse. Which isn't bad, but this is low-tier Converge for sure.

i won’t be surprised if they release the album with bonus tracks since i believe they recorded 18 songs. having eve be the closer would not be surprising at all, if it is included as a bonus. but i guess we’ll see. i like the song but I also can’t say i could be too critical as to its place considering the whole album isn’t out yet.

I really like how Jake is mixed on this. He sounds really clear and pure. Less marred by effects and filtering.

This is a weird closer for them, but it's still a banger of a song.

wtf do your ears just go "OH YEA THAT PART IS QUIET, NOTHING NEW FOR THEM" yea they wrote like 5 songs with a clean guitar intro lol but none of them sound similar to this, this has some darkened almost eastern/arabic feel to it. I mean I'm not saying that's a bad thing or anything, they surprise me like this with each album, that's what I love about this band.

This is one of those bands that I just can't seem to give a shit about.

No range of emotion or dynamics.

Nothing that stands out.

I'm saying more in terms of tone. This is like standardized metal intro fare. If a punk band (and that's what they refer to themselves as to) starts a song with two chords downstroked at a blinding speed - that's just style. But this really basic take on the eastern vibe just doesn't seem very Converge-like. It always reminds me of something like "Eye Of The Beholder".

A. All the people complaining about the intro praised the eve intro and it’s essentially the same shit.

B. This is the second simple “mosh anthem” in a row that converge has ended an album with but no one complained about predatory glow.

C. This band can cover “wolverine blues” and get acclaim and everyone’s stoked but the second they write a song that’s clearly influenced by that era entombed everyone cries because it’s boring?

Yeah man. Listened to half of Jane Doe and I got nothing from it. There were no moments that made me go "That was brutal as hell" or "man was that epic" because everything is delivered in this monochromatic, guttural scream. Nothing stands out. No matter how hard I try I just seem to miss the hype on these guys.

Lmfao dude you have absolutely zero basis to make claims about the band's dynamics or emotional depth, at least listen to the closer or listen to literally any other Converge album that came out after before making yourself look like more of an ignorant fuck

"Lmfao dude you have absolutely zero basis to make claims about the band's dynamics or emotional depth"

"listen to the closer or listen to literally any other Converge album that came out after before making yourself look like more of an ignorant fuck"

I don't think those are fair comments man. I get the concept of listening to an entire album before making a judgement about this. I normally do that, but when an album doesn't do anything and I'm halfway through it I don't really have a reason to keep going. I didn't say this band is garbage or that I don't see how anyone can get anything from them, I just said that I personally don't find anything to hold onto.

Second of all, I get that the closer is usually the emotional climax of an album, but if I need to listen to all of it just to find something interesting then, to me, the album still isn't interesting, it just has a good closer.

It seems that I struck a nerve with you about not liking your favorite band or something so I'm going to chalk it up to you having a bad day. If you have suggestions about where to start or what to listen for I'd love to hear it.

Fair point, and honestly despite it's massive rating on here I can't recommend starting with Jane Doe, it's one of their least accessible albums. Check axe to fall or all we love we leave behind. Both tend to save their more dynamic moments for the end of the album, but they're both more immediate and easier to get into
