Published Feb 20, 2015Need a reminder of just how damn incredible a live band hardcore kings Converge are? Well, just ahead of the Decibel Magazine Tour with At the Gates, the band have unveiled an official, full-set video from last year's This Is Hardcore fest in Philadelphia. Spoiler: it's aggressive and impressive.
Guitarist/studio wiz Kurt Ballou mixed the audio for the multi-angle video, and then had Brad Boatright master the recordings. What we're saying is that this isn't your average YouTube upload. On top of the top-notch recording quality, you'll find Converge in kill mode as they run through a back catalogue-scouring set that had the Philly crowd tearing each other to pieces.
Witness, if you will, the fast and furious "Eagles vs Vultures," or the band's heartfelt "Aimless Arrow." Elsewhere, they resuscitate the ear-shredding metalcore classic "The Saddest Day," bring out former member and Cave In leader Stephen Brodsky to jam, and present a powerful "Last Light."
Converge are back out on the road next month. You'll find all of the date details for the Decibel tour here.
