CONVERGE / All We Love We Leave Behind [2012]

With over 20 years of being together, hardcore punkers Converge release their eighth album, 2012's All We Love We Leave Behind and they show no sing of becoming stale.  
It's mostly the loud, aggressive, frantic time signatures we've come to expect from them but Converge throw us for a loop with a few brief moments of melody and stark, distorted beauty.  When all is said and done, these guys are just plain fuckin' good at what they do and it really shows with the quality song structures and tones they emit.
