So let me explain to you why this CD is worth buying even if you already own the original WFCC. These songs were re-mastered VERY well- they're much crunchier and more aggressive. The drums and bass are more pounding and ferocious, while the guitars still sound like they could flay the flesh from your body. I have been listening to this CD pretty much non-stop for the last 24 hours since I bought it, and I really feel like Converge has given us a chance to hear this music the way it SHOULD have been captured the first time. These are some of Converge's most aggressive and creative songs, and they finally sound GOOD.
In addition, all of the artwork is brand new (pages and pages of it), and created by Aaron Turner of Isis. Although I prefer the original interior artwork of the skulls and gold embossed ink, the slipcover is just bad-ass.
Bonus song as well- the demo version of "bitter and then some" from Jane Doe. it's good stuff. Best song on the album- "Towing Jehovah". Holy crap is that one good.
Bottom line- Converge fans can't pass this up. And the CD is finally a good jumping on point for new Converge fans as well.
After purschasing what I thought up until this point was the greatest hardcore record ever, Vision of Disorder's "Imprint" I have been searching for years to find a band which encapsulates that brilliance with every record.
When Forever Comes Crashing is that record. Eclectic, surprising, twisting, and contorted sounds come out of two guitars, bass, and drums and meld in to this sinister mix which forces me to listen. It takes a while to really appreciate the genius of such diverse musical elements all intermingled into one song, but when it does I can honestly say this is the best extreme metal record I own. All these songs would have worked great as insturmentals, though Bannon's shrieks (which I can't follow, even with the lyric sheet) do add a sense of urgency which overlays this record perfectly.
fans of converge should check out acme, cave in's older material, and barrit, if they haven't already.
The long awaited Converge reissues have FINALLY surfaced, and Converge fanatics nation, and even worldwide are rejoicing as there is even more need to own Converge merchandise. The newly re-done CDs have been given new life through the mastering genius of Godcity Studios and the brilliant art-work of frontman Jacob Bannon. The initial records of both albums, although ground breaking and amazing albums, were both fairly poorly recorded and mastered leaving fans with an unquenched thirst for the clear quality of the music.
Converge has quenched that thirst and more with the newly re-released albums. Both albums have been given complete new life and sound astonishing compared to their original releases. The sound quality on the re-issues is leaps and bounds beyond the original pressings, making the albums far more enjoyable and easily listenable. The most noticeable difference is on Petitioning the Empty Sky. Petitioning was originally recorded fairly empty and powerless, the re-issue however blows the listener away, re-mastered in a way that things in-audible on the original release are now made very apparent.
The Converge re-issues are an absolute must have for any Converge fan.
