Converge: A Legendary Hardcore Band


TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

"Death Was Just A Simple Glance Across A Dim Lit Room"

Converge will rip your gallbladder out of your nipples and then write a poem with your plasma.

Don't believe me? Listen to some of the tracks above.

Being one of the most punk bands I've ever heard must be a tough challenge, but being creative enough to write a masterpiece album like "Jane Doe" as well? Well...that is simply legendary.

And that's exactly what Converge is. A legendary, hardcore/metal band that will blow your socks off.

I originally just heard their newer album "Axe To Fall", and already I loved that. But once I heard Jane Doe, I blew my lid. Even the recording quality itself is outstanding.

If you are going on a run, or going to work out, I recommend you put on Converge. It's the type of tune that will get that extra rep or minute of running in. It's like plugging a battery into your ears.

But alas, it's not for everyone. Converge is only for those who like Metal and Hardcore tunes. Those with faint hearts should probably shy away, and you may experience dizziness and heart attacks if you aren't prepared with an ample supply of adrenaline.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
