Converge

Petitioning The Empty Sky

Equal Vision 40

Released on January 20, 1998

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!


We finally got this emo metal masterpiece, with a new layout. If you can imagine Acme, Starkweather, & Rorschach all thrown into a blender, then you've got it. Essential.

Awesome! As it's meant to be. Come on it's converge how can it be bad?? Faves include The Saddest Day and Forsaken. Plus as always, artwork is amazing. Banon is so good. Cheers.

Does Converge waste time yappin' about some bitch? NO! Does Converge get soft until the "screamy" part? FUCK NO! Who do you think this is man? Do you hear intense music here? YES! Do you hear music that will not compel you, no, force you to mosh, force you to go crazy? FUCK YES! This is music for those who want something interesting when it comes to heavy music man, not the same old "metalcore,emocore,screamo,blah blah" shit, no way brother this is music man, fucking music! And it's sick and it's heavy and it's relentless, emotional (not EMOtional) and just... heavy! From the rush of the first song The Saddest Day to the Brutish live recording of Home Song your going to hear ferocity and virility and virture (as in not fucking selling out, ya heard!). So let me ask you how much is this worth...

100 bucks? LOWER! 50 bucks? LOWER! 20 bucks? LOWER! 11 bucks? ROLL IT!

Buy it BITCH!

Well it took me forever to give this thing a review but here goes. I bought this CD after I heard "Color Me Blood Red" and I'm glad that I did. It's a great CD if you're into hardcore stuff. Buy this now! It wont disappoint.

Simply put:

CONVERGE. The greatest hardcore band of all time. And screw anyone who thinks otherwise.

Hardcore, yet melodic(sometimes). Converge is HARDCORE. Petitioning the Empty Sky is amazing, it's fast and the vocals just aren't beatable. It's also my first Converge album. I suggest this to everyone, I've heard "Jane Doe" and "When Forever Comes Crashing Down," but this is my first bought, and if you're sceptical about them, buy this first, you won't be disappointed!

shit yes, that's all i got to say. It's a bit more old schoolish and has some punkier songs than Jane Doe but it's ok cause after you hear the saddest day, you probably won't be able to bring yourself to take this album out of your player for a long, long time. Probably the coolest sounding guitars ever put on an album and the riffs stay in your head forever. For hardcore fans out there, this is a must-have. Converge kills. Dam right
