All We Love We Leave Behind
Released on October 9, 2012
Converge have cemented their place in genre they helped create, consistently listed among hard music’s most influential and important bands. Now with their new album All We Love We Leave Behind, Converge continue to build on their devoted base. Formed in Salem, MA, in 1990, Converge are to modern metal what the Ramones were to punk, with albums like Jane Doe and You Fail Me considered touchstones of the genre. Not that Converge rest on their laurels – their last album, Axe To Fall, was proclaimed by Decibel magazine as their best yet. All We Love We Leave Behind continues that development, while bringing to the foreground the amazing guitar of founding member Kurt Ballou, who is emerging as a true guitar god. With leader Jacob Bannon finding searing melodies amidst the chaos of chords that is their hallmark, All We Love We Leave Behind continues the evolution of this important band.
