CONVERGE / Jane Doe [2001]

Hardcore punk band Converge got their big break with 2001's Jane Doe and rightfully so.
It's loud, abrasive and erratic enough that it will more than likely steer most folks away.  Layered with dense walls of chaotic guitar work, raw screeching vocals, bass mixed so low you can't hear it but can certainly feel it and insane polyrhythmic drum-work that highlights the album. These guys are so tight and skilled at their craft that it can't be denied by even someone who doesn't like what it sounds like.
