After five years of silence, the classic Boston hardcore unit, Converge, have returned with two new tracks. No surprise, but the two new tracks showcase a veteran band that has not lost an ounce of vitality in their absence. The first song, “I Can Tell You About Pain”, is exactly what you want from Converge. The band furiously blasts through its two minute runtime. Kurt Ballou’s production pops and Jacob Bannon sounds as ragged as ever. It’s very much a testament to Converge’s consistency. But, the stunner here is the seven minute “Eve”. Despite “Wretched World” or Jane Doe’s eleven minute title track, Converge aren’t really known for sweeping epics. Though, I’d argue it’s something they do just as well as short game hardcore assaults. The track’s foundation is built around a tribal drum beat and gradually ascends from there bringing to mind classic period Neurosis and Cobalt’s Slow Forever. Give them a listen below.
