Roadburn 2016 is lookin’ sexy as usual with Black Mountain, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth and other killer acts slated to appear, but many people will be drooling about a full set of Jane Doe from some band called Converge you may have heard of. While that is cool, I think all the emphasis on that record takes away from how many of their other albums are just as awesome (Axe To Fall and You Fail Me in particular). But hey, it’s still rad. But I’m much more keen on the second announcement which finds the band teaming up with some awesome guests to reinterpret some of their weirder tunes.

To celebrate the upcoming 15 year anniversary of their legendary Jane Doe album, CONVERGE will perform the album in its entirety for the first and last time. The album is considered a classic that defined the metallic hardcore genre as we know it today. This special set is exclusive to the Roadburn Festival and will not be played again anywhere, ever.

CONVERGE will play the Jane Doe album live in its entirety at Roadburn 2016 on Thursday, April 14. 

CONVERGE “Blood Moon” is a collaboration between members Jacob Bannon, Kurt Ballou, Nate Newton, and Ben Koller and guest musicians Chelsea Wolfe, Ben Chisholm, Stephen Brodsky, and Steve Von Till. Together as a multi-instrumental group they will create renditions of existing CONVERGE material focusing on the band’s slower, more ambitious work within their legendary catalogue. 
CONVERGE “Blood Moon” will perform live at Roadburn 2016 on Saturday, April 16.

The Decibel Magazine Tour: At The Gates and pals take over NYC

Thinking back on the whirlwind night of Decibel Magazine Tour‘s Webster Hall finale, the main thing that comes to mind is not the sweaty masses of hairy metal dudes, bad ass chics or even the amazing music from Vallenfyre, Pallbearer, Converge and At The Gates (playing their first set in NYC in many years).

No, what got me the most was thinking of the influence and deep involvement of all the members of these bands in the metal scene and how much passion can spread to coat the world in one person’s lifetime of work. From Converge’s Jacob Bannon’s Deathwish Inc. label/distro to his artistic influence on the visual side of the scene to Vallenfyre’s cast of characters deeply influential work in bands like Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride to Pallbearer playing big hip festivals only metal bands like Mastodon or Metallica usually get asked to play to At The Gates deep legacy on melodeath to the members involvement in other groups ranging from The Haunted to Disfear and Skitsystem, you’ve got a huge web of metal history, present and future emanating from the stage.

White Arms Of Athena are a band I just recently discovered and so I was thrilled to learn they are tracking a sophomore effort for Prosthetic Records.

I was just talking about this band on Twitter with some Coheed and Cambria fans and Neesh from Neeshcast Radio. Today I found out they’ve  recorded their sophomore Prosthetic effort at GodCity Studio in Salem, Mass. with acclaimed producer and Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou (Every Time I Die, High On Fire, Kvelertak). The as-yet-untitled album — expected to be released later this year — will be mixed by Ballou, engineered and co-produced by Travis Kammeyer (Storm of Light, Generation of Vipers) and mastered by Alan Douches (Baroness, The Dillinger Escape Plan).

The band, which has previously shared the stage with acts including Arsonists Get All The Girls, Katalepsy, Fallujah, The Contortionist, The Ocean, East of the Wall, Holy Grail and Baring Teeth, will release further information on the upcoming release in the coming weeks. Follow them on social media for the latest updates:
