Although it's nowhere near as close to the heights these two excellent bands would reach, I would most definitely recommend this to any die hard fans. It's a pretty solid listen, despite leaving a few things to be desired.

A pretty sweet split, though Converge's side is infinitely better than AgNb.

A split between such harbingers of abrasiveness like Converge and Agoraphobic Nosebleed seems like it would be a godsend, but, like a lot of albums like this, it works much better in theory than in practice. Agoraphobic Nosebleed's side is noticeably faster and more intense, but nothing really goes on during it besides some nice riffs here or there. Converge's side wins out in the songwriting department, but the production during these songs leave much to be desired. It sounds so flimsy and thin that the music barely has any weight behind it, leading songs like "My Great Devastator" and "The Human Shield" to feel like every second of their length. That these problems could be rectified by having a better production job reeks of wasted potential, and it is truly unfortunate, as songs like "This Is Mine" and "Minnesota" are still good, but could be so much more. It's okay, but I'd really expect more from these two bands.

2.5 averageiReturnToDust | September 3rd 15

some good songs (mostly from agoraphobic's half) but this is pretty underwhelming considering the fact that these are two of the most insane bands ever.
