Converge, Napalm Death announce split EP
Monday, April 30, 2012 2:27 PM PT
Legendary bands Converge and Napalm Death have come together for a split release, bridging the worlds of personal and politically driven extreme music.
Recorded as part of their new album sessions, Converge offer up the blazing new song "No Light Escapes". Already a staple of their live set, this whirlwind of an emotional charged song is a soon to be a discordant hardcore/metal anthem for the band. Also on the release, Converge offer a "We Are The World" styled rendition of the influential Entombed classic "Wolverine Blues". Joining them in tribute is a number of friends including Tomas Lindberg (Disfear, At The Gates, Lock Up), Aaron Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom, Split Cranium), Kevin Baker (APMD, The Hope Conspiracy), Brian Izzi (Trap Them), and more. A new Converge album will surface later in 2012 on Epitaph/Deathwish.
On the flip side, metal pioneers Napalm Death offer up two new aural monsters. First, "Will By Mouth" erupts in classic grind fashion. A buzz of brutal guitars and a crushing blast beat lay a foundation for Barney Greenway's vicious vocal attack. All of it uniquely bleeding together to paint a vivid picture of social unrest. Also on the release, Napalm Death offer the slower and textural new song "No Impediment To Triumph (Bhopal)". A deeply resonant number that lyrically sheds light on the horrific Bhopal Gas Tragedy of 1984. Without question, "No Impediment…" is truly powerful and poignant moment for this legendary band.

Well, I can honestly say I'm stoked. But why does every Deathwish press release sound like a high school student's first attempt at descriptive writing?

"im a little suprised napalm death is doing a split with them of all bands"
you realize that you're talking about a band that did a split with boysetsfire, right?
5/1/2012 9:21:07 AM
Coalesce did a split with BoySetsFire. Not Converge.
5/1/2012 11:32:41 AM
Might i also add that Napalm Death previously did a split with Coalesce.
5/1/2012 3:20:48 PM
coalesce covering "vehicle" was pretty awesome

I heard from a very reliable source refused will be on this split. Honestly, was never funny

Actually, Coalesce did splits with both BoySetsFire and Converge (As well as Napalm Death). I kind of wish ND and Converge would cover each other's songs, but this is still awesome news.

Converge, napalm death, emmure split.
5/4/2012 11:33:28 AM
popping shit on "emmure" is NO longer funny-yes,they suck, but why keep beating a dead horse?

Anal Cunt is mad they didn't do a split with Converge.
