Format:Audio CD
agoraphobic nosebleed chug out ten or so songs of their typical nature: fast as all hell drum machines, scott hull's signature shredding style(although it sounds more punk-based when he's working with ANb). These are all fine songs, though you should really get their actual albums if you want to be blown away. they have better material, but this stuff isn't bad. it'd be cool too, if the songs sounded a little more the way you might imagine them, judging from some of their cool titles(glass tornado, pentagram constellation).
the converge side is just plain great. awesome stuff. you'll hear a great mix of styles, hardcore, metalcore, thrash, and some really nice slower stuff. the song 'stretch for miles' is worth the price of the cd. 'my great devastator' sounds like a technically proficient hatebreed and slayer collaborating. just plain awesome. my favorite side.

Format:Audio CD
Agoraphobic Nosebleed-Mechanical grind madness dripping with emotion. A far raunchier sound than Honkey Reduction, the drummerless, bassless gods of gore-grind have excelled themselves, and most other bands of this type,with tracks such as 'Centre of the Hive'and 'Pentagram Constellation' .AG NOSEBLEED are grind at its most intense, whilst employing slightly old-skool production values. Just wait for their next album 'Frozen Corpse...'and your head will explode...man.
Converge are the greatest band of these times. The most groundbreaking music this planet has ever produced can be found on their latest album 'Jane Doe', yet we recieve a wide variety of genius from Converge on 'The Poacher Diaries'. Ranging from the stomping and ear-splitting 'Locust Reign' to the tranquil beauty present in 'They Stretch For Miles' to the ultimate sound of agony 'My Great Devastator', Converge are gods in their world, or any other. 'Buy the ticket,take the ride'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Intense Listening experience June 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
With two bands on one disc.Its A great bargain.Tracks 1-9 gives you anb(agoraphobic nosebleed).Most brutal and intense band out there.Fastest band.They are a little more experimental with the sound ,then they were on honky reduction.Well worth giving this band a try .If ya already haven't .So fast and intense a band .There is just no other band out there in comparisson to agoraphobic nosebleed for thier intensity.Tracks 10-15 is converge.This band is I have to say one the best bands I have heard in awhile.Trust me Relapse gave me a winter 2000 sampler.This prompted me to get this cd.Not so much just for agoraphobic nosebleed .Its converge.I like both bands,but converge really impresses me over any band of this style.They are very intense.The singers vocal range is awesome.Its just pierces through you in parts.The instrumentation they use on some the songs is awesome.Please check this cd out .Then from here pick up some other material by these two bands.Split cds are always a pleasure of owning.You get two bands for a low price.Gives a listener an experience of hearing the other band if they haven't yet. Enjoy this cause its worth every penny spent on it.Must have in the serious metal/grind/metalcore heads collection...

5.0 out of 5 stars ANb + Converge = Noisecore Harmony March 10, 2000
By aphexin
Format:Audio CD
I just finished reading the review from below mine, and I let out a harsh sigh. For someone to badmouth the supreme ANb is sacrilege in the power violence world. Heed no attention to the words listed below, well, just the ones against ANb. The words for Converge are exceptionally pieced; I agree with all. But, I do digress on the opinions for ANb. My main assumption is that he is just not a fan. ANb unleash nine aural assaults on eardrums, never letting go of the stranglehold they grip upon you. With the addition of a new band member, the trio are now stronger than ever. Scott Hull's guitar thrashes away like a swarm of locusts, and Jay Randall's vocals have grown stronger than before. And the drum machine, well, it's still programmed to be faster than Dave Lombardo and Doc from Vader combined. An unending, ceaseless havoc that deploys carnage to your brain. How fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two great bands come together August 1, 2004
By Locust
Format:Audio CD
The pieces by ANb on this album are not true grind, and don't sound much like Agoraphobic Nosebleed does on FCSWD, but still is like a blow to the head for all the intensity and with the greatest metalcore band of the past, Converge, it is worth buying. This is really Converge's album, you can just tell that their musicianship on their few tracks shines more than Anb's. The recording quality sucks, but both of these bands are awesome, so it naturally satisfied even a critic like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Converge/ANB - The Poacher Diaries November 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The album's title is "The Poacher Diaries." There are others' whom have destroyed the name of this album with their reviews, expecting the early "downhome" hardcore of Converge. This is the best offerings from both bands. If you like "Jane Doe" this can be thought of as the flux time between earlier Converge and the later material; yet still it has the anthemic nature of early stuff. The ANB tracks are phenominal in their own right. Amazing stuff from both bands, and you're missing out if you don't give it a try.

Bad for floor-punching hardcore fanatics, good for everyone else.

Neither band are great, but neither band suck. If you've listened to this genre a lot you'll recognise that it's mostly the same old stuff but so what ... it shreds.
