Your boy D Frye and I had an amazing fucking night last Friday. We got to see two of the best metal bands of all time, Converge and Neurosis, play together on the same bill. The opener, Amenra, was also phenomenal…we are two lucky bastards.
I went to the show mainly for Converge and, as expected, they blew me away. But Neurosis was fucking mind-blowingly incredible. I honestly don’t know who I enjoyed more (that’s a lie…there was a beautiful girl dancing awesomely in front of me for the entire Neurosis set, so they win).
Highlight of the night for me (aside from the dancing girl) was Converge playing ‘Predatory Glow’. I wish everyone could see a song like that, played live. They also did three of their new tracks which were ridiculous. I thought ‘I Can Tell You About Pain’ was the winner from the new single but ‘Eve’ is some next level stuff. Holy shit their new album is going to rule.
Because I’m a sweetheart, I made playlists of their sets so you can all live vicariously. Unfortunately, one of Converge’s new songs ‘Under Duress’ hasn’t been released yet, but trust…it works! Enjoy, and go see them if you can!
