Metalcore's old guard Converge converged upon the BBC recently to record a session in August 2010, the results of which can be digested now on this lovely green 7" on Deathwish which plays four songs at 33rpm.
I'm particularly enjoying the choppy first half of 'Damages' with some sweet rhythmic interplay between the drums and some crunchy guitar slashes. I do feel like over the years they've become a little formulaic, and I somewhat pine for their more frantic and unpredictable earlier stuff as they trudge through the third or fourth chunky beatdown of this set, but they're still a slick and heavy unit.
It's weird though, listening back to the bands you liked as a teenager and wondering if they're actually less sophisticated now or if your mind has just adapted since then, but I could swear this lot used to be more fierce and raw and confused than they are now...or was that me?
