who even wanted this


anonymous 4/29/2016 11:01:57 AM

piebald is the better band


anonymous 4/29/2016 11:13:55 AM

people that actually dig good music... that's who wants this.


anonymous 4/29/2016 11:18:59 AM

guarantee the remastering will sound even worse than the original. and kurt ballou is way overrated as a producer too


anonymous 4/29/2016 11:19:27 AM

NO ONE WHO LISTENS TO NAILS (which is everyone, because everyone listens to Nails) wants this. So I think what I mean to say is no one likes a band (converge) who copies their favorite original band such as Nails.


anonymous 4/29/2016 11:20:18 AM

jake bannon is like jackson pollock with shit tats and a micropenis


anonymous 4/29/2016 12:04:33 PM

Todd Jones produced and mixed the original album.


anonymous 4/29/2016 1:20:40 PM

You Fail Todd Jones, Converge

Whoever thought this needed a redux needs better stereo speakers, the original sounds fine. Besides, aren't all of these guys into poorly recorded metal and hardcore anyways?


anonymous 4/29/2016 2:41:30 PM

overrated wanky guitar metalcore with dog barking vocals.


anonymous 4/29/2016 2:43:26 PM

^ *duck sounding vocals


anonymous 4/29/2016 2:43:54 PM

"Besides, aren't all of these guys into poorly recorded metal and hardcore anyways?" yeah they're into that about as much as all those pop punk bands claim to be into black flag. gotta have cred ya know?


anonymous 4/29/2016 2:45:09 PM

jacob bannon studio vocals distorted in studio. go see them live he cups the mic the entire time and sounds like hes coughing into it. so overrated.


anonymous 4/29/2016 3:32:10 PM

First and foremost, this sounds fcking GREAT. Secondly, I'd like to imagine the nay-sayers I'm reading are probably the same people who buy a t-shirt at the beginning of a show and put it on immediately... that's if you get permission from your parents to go to said show. I get hating on your every day hardcore pop-up band, but come on... have some fcking taste.


anonymous 4/29/2016 3:41:07 PM

Lambgays are aching to assfcked by this release, yeah Converge isn't innovative or genre defining in the least you bunch of inept retards.


anonymous 4/29/2016 3:41:13 PM

dude. some people just don't like converge, get it? just because you want to tongue their bungholes doesnt mean everyone else wants to.


anonymous 4/29/2016 3:42:34 PM

I invented grindcore before this album came out so I was a little too busy to give it a listen -Todd


anonymous 4/29/2016 3:48:52 PM

converge is just awful. you dck riders are as bad as the hipsters who suck everything that comes out of chino morenos dck


anonymous 4/29/2016 3:58:48 PM

Nails laid the groundwork for a more brutal form of music called heavy metal


anonymous 4/29/2016 4:06:06 PM

"While basking in the order of his own farts, and staring at himself nude in the mirror and admiring his true genius, Bannon decided to remaster his masterpiece!"


anonymous 4/29/2016 4:08:24 PM

This album is already great, a redux isn't necessary. Stupid. Maybe write a new record instead, little fcklets. Incidentally, I have had gay sex with Jacob Bannon....he's trying to keep it a secret but I want the world to know our sexual adventures.


anonymous 4/29/2016 4:16:06 PM

Converge sounds like Pip fartin' on a snare drum.


anonymous 4/29/2016 4:28:21 PM

Petitioning the empty sky (original master) was 20 years ago...wow! They haven't put out a good Lp in 20 years. Crazy..


anonymous 4/29/2016 5:01:57 PM

Any1 remember the short docu drama about jacob bannon where he talked about how he hates looking in the mirror and gets sick when he accidentally sees himself?


anonymous 4/29/2016 5:04:46 PM

I mixed and mastered this album -Todd Jones, musician, family man and inventor of using distortion on guitar


anonymous 4/29/2016 5:32:11 PM

everyone should check out bannon's wedding photos which are online


anonymous 4/29/2016 5:44:56 PM

Lambgoat: No One Likes Anything Ever


anonymous 4/29/2016 7:49:08 PM

Nails: Todd Jones' band


anonymous 4/29/2016 9:13:48 PM

The best part is the fact that Converge is literally the only band that has ever made metalcore even remotely credible. Meanwhile, all you gays are jockin Periphery or some bullshit. fck outta here.


anonymous 4/30/2016 4:58:02 AM

Hey Converge why don't you repost this on your social media accounts exhaustively until everyone unfollows you


anonymous 4/30/2016 8:41:01 AM

Converge made metalcore??? Todd Jones invented the instruments that these hacks play and have been playing since they were in the womb


anonymous 4/30/2016 8:44:30 AM

This sounds EXACTLY like a slower, crap version of Nails. These guys must have heard Nails' groundbreaking sound and are trying to cash in.


anonymous 4/30/2016 9:14:16 AM

made metalcore even remotely credible made metalcore even remotely credible made metalcore even remotely credible made metalcore even remotely credible metalcore NEEDS credibility you guys


anonymous 4/30/2016 9:56:41 AM

People who collect retarded silk screen prints are stoked


anonymous 4/30/2016 12:20:02 PM

Oh wow lambgoat dckheads don't like Converge, a band that gets respect from more metal heads, hardcore kids and punks across the world than virtually any band. Meanwhile you are beating off to twitter nudes. BEEF BROCCOLI. VEGGIE MEDLY. CLAM CHOWDER. I HAVE EVERY SOUP KNOWN TO MAN. fck YOU NO-SOUP HAVING COWARDS. One of the best records of all time, curious to see how the master compares to the OG.


anonymous 4/30/2016 12:45:28 PM

ladies and gentlemen..... i give you soup guy..... lord of defense.... he has gay and retarded opinions and he won't be ignored or silenced. stand up for rights soup guy


anonymous 4/30/2016 1:41:15 PM

Hey soup guy, say everything you just wrote on here to Todd Jones and I'm sure he would drop kick you into next week, you asshat. This band CLEARLY ripped off Nails. This album came out when? A few weeks ago? POSERS


anonymous 4/30/2016 1:56:49 PM

You Nails Me


anonymous 4/30/2016 3:03:17 PM

NAILS x CONVERSE x DECIBEL PRESENT: NAILS "YOU FAIL ME" REISSUE INCLUDES LIMITED NAILS SLIPMAT


anonymous 4/30/2016 3:28:10 PM

^^^^ this guy gets it


anonymous 4/30/2016 5:21:29 PM

Didn't Nails write You Fail Me?


anonymous 4/30/2016 5:23:35 PM

Nails> Every sound ever made in the history of the universe


anonymous 4/30/2016 6:15:39 PM

^^^^ They have written every album from anyone who's anyone. Wait no, TODD JONES wrote all that shit. His band is basically a bunch of lackeys he hired to look like they're playing. The drums and bass are playing to a track while Jones' voice and guitar is the only thing that is really being played on stage.


anonymous 4/30/2016 7:15:44 PM

^^ that's actually true. i talked to eyal levi after todd's seminar that he did and he told me that todd's been known to actually use holograms sometimes at bigger fests and stuff


anonymous 5/1/2016 12:19:08 AM

You dweebs, Todd is playing all the instruments at the same time. He just has people standing in on stage so your mind doesn't melt from the awesomeness that your primitive brains cannot process.


anonymous 5/1/2016 9:17:40 AM

I dig converge but this doesnt really seem neccessary...


anonymous 5/1/2016 10:22:42 AM

^^^^ converge? They should really change their name to Todd Jones featuring some no named hacks. Everyone knows the secret is out... Any band mentioned on this site from now on is a Jones side project. Chino thinks he has bands? Nope, it's all Todd Jones.


anonymous 5/1/2016 12:54:49 PM

Can someone start a kickstarter to give money to Todd Jones because well, he's Todd Jones?


anonymous 5/1/2016 2:21:32 PM

^^^ Dude, who needs money when you wrote every heavy song ever and continue to do so? Ask Flemming Rasmussen, Jones was in the studio when Metallica wrote "Master of Puppets". The guy SHOWED Kirk and James all of those rippers, I can't believe this is news to anyone.


anonymous 5/2/2016 2:08:16 AM

cash rules everything around me get the money


anonymous 5/2/2016 3:36:55 AM

three dollar bill yall


anonymous 5/2/2016 6:48:56 AM

yall can hate, but im stoked to hear it. this album remastered is gonna sound fcking huge


anonymous 5/3/2016 9:31:07 AM

I have learned so many things from this wonderful collection of thoughts called the internets. I want to thank you, each and every one, individually for your contributions and outstanding performance in the field of thought-sharing. Many blessings to you all!


anonymous 5/20/2016 9:10:07 AM

Todd Jones here I wrote and recorded this whole song by my self
