i might actually prefer it to no heroes after all.its stunning.any bands similar to converge you want to recommend?
Particularly the first album "Bless the Martyr Kiss The Child"
i think i prefer o god the aftermath to bless the martyr
the two but BTMKTC has "Pretty Soon, I Don't Know What, but Something is Going to Happen" which is EPIC :-), what did you make of Redeemer?
all their albums are great.have you seen any of the studio videos for the new album?
not yet are they on youtube? I heard that they're planning on having chino moreno as a guest on that album very interested to hear how that goes down.
I liked redeemer as well it was pretty different from the first two (most I guess due to the change in vocalists) but pretty cool.
its only snippets of the songs but it sounds ace (always going to be ace really though isnt it!)
sounds pretty cool
& Redeemer have the same vocalist.
my mistake, I though josh scogin still featured on oh god the aftermath but it seems like he left after BTMKTC.
is really really good. It's furious! The album after that was a bit disappointing in comparison.
And also if you havent already, BOTCH!
we are the romans yes?
And once you've heard that you might want to purchase everything else they did!
they're not really that much like converge but i think you'd be able to appreciate what they do
Cave-In used to be, right?
Caleb has made an album like this
ive been listening to trepanning on repeat for the past few days and juggernaut as well
seen them in norwich a few times.
They aren't anything like Converge.
and theyve clearly been influenced by converge
the most boring band ever though.
Throats are for winners
tortuga arent bad though
live and on record, and no there isn't much of a link between them and converge.
Throats do everything so much better than Tortuga, its almost frustrating.
I just wish the good members of NCF would finally put something out, they're always saying they're going to do a band and then it never happens
The Chariot - which is norma jeans first singers band.. they have some quality tunes.. and also Intonaut.. really really good.
is that their only album?
their first is 'everything is alive, everything is breathing nothing is dead..something something something (cant remember the rest) i think i prefer that to fiancee, though i know it much better to be fair
More hardcore I guess.
The Number 12 Looks Like You maybe?
Fear Before The March Of Flames
been listening to the new album lots lately.
that albums ace
is where it's at. Fucking brutal album!
UK band too. Sorely missed.
'This Elegy, His Autopsy' is a beast of an album.
Pig Destroyer should be checked out without delay - bit more of a straight grind influence, but their sense of dynamics is second to none.
they're a bit more doomy. But still furious.
different, but worth a try.
They're basically Myspace-Drummachine-Grind
like Converge fronted by a female Jacob Bannon.
is a hideous name
erm Orchid, Throats, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Botch, Cephalic Carnage, CombatWoundedVeteran
Yeah, anyway - don't judge a book by it's cover and all - check them out.
i hated :D
il check them out!
at the adelphi with maths soon! maths are like saetia (ish) and therefore fucking awesome
with Circle Takes The Square, also The Abominable Iron Sloth are very worth hearing
but some bands have come close. Try Curl Up and Die, The Power and the Glory, Eden Maine, Beecher, Harlots.
Thinking about it loads of bands have tried to copy that record. NBone have succeeded.
To You The First Star is an absolute blinder of an album. I don't know why, but the vocals always get me they're so raw and passionate, even though he's not saying much. They have this brilliant chaos going to, and some great ambiance.
So yeah...check 'em out.
Also: Coalesce, Transistor Transistor, and Cursed, worth checking out. And Until Your Heart Stops by Cave In.
Chariots (not The Chariot)
They were a young UK band, about a couple of years ago, as far as Im aware they did 1 ep/mix tape thing, an album and a mini album. All of which were incredible.
Try and get their album 'Daybreak' from somewhere if you can, i remember reading a RockSound review of it which said something like:
"The album Converge wish they'd made instead of No Heroes"
AWESOME AWESOME BAND!
DIS Review of mini album here:
Which also throws up the names of Ochid and La Quiete - both definitely worth listening to.
Not No Heroes, You Fail Me!
is their best album?
awhile ago awesome stuff shame they broke up. Rinoa featuring members of chariots are pretty cool though.
Daybreak is incredible - although a very VERY difficult listen due to its sheer intensity and heaviness. Gutted I never saw Chariots live before they split.
Saw them in Wales with the Guillaume Seam, who were also a class band, similarish vein. Awesome!
Saw them in Leeds with Beecher, again class band. Even better!
Saw them in Manchester with ... i forget. But even better still.
Their live performances were insane, Emile (singer) was off his nut!
In a different spin but all the intensity of Converge - The Locust or Daughters! even Burnt By The Sun
Is one of my favourite albums!
But i listen to Hell Songs more, I listen the vocals on Daughters spelt wrong, its like a drunkard singing backwards.
That's how I described it in a review, more or less.
hell songs scares the shit out of me (in a good way)
JOHN DOE...A MAN HAUNTED BY HIS PAST
JOHN DOE...HIS SOUL WILL NEVER REST
i never got them, really don't like them
much prefer Holy Molar
Melt-Banana are worth checking out even if fuck all like Converge
I thought I'd revive the thread just to say that.
