GETTING INTO: Converge

There is all too often a short sighted perception of hardcore that it is a somewhat dead ended genre, a revolving loop of tedious chest beating and recycled ideas. For those of this opinion, Massachusetts pioneers Converge are the band to point to, their richly emotive and stridently creative strain of peerless fury being the very antithesis of club swinging stodge. With a dynamic understanding and a tangible, suffocating heaviness light-years beyond that of their contemporaries, or indeed any band before or since, their constant evolution and sonic vision has left them with a discography awash with genre defining high-points as they remain the very pinnacle of hardcore inventiveness.

TRACK-BY-TRACK: Red Seas Fire – Resolution EP

When we last heard from the West Country based quartet, it was April 2014, and Red Seas Fire had just unleashed Confrontation, the follow up to 2013’s Exposition. Since then, the band continued pushing themselves ahead through self-imposed challenges to ensure that their last installment of their now three year spanning ‘Mise En Scène’ project was the most devastating work of all. Largely home-produced and recorded (with a little help from their friends), ‘Resolution’ truly finds Red Seas Fire as masters of their manifest destiny, each element of their richly textured sound dense with peaks, troughs and, well, riffs… Vocalist Robin Adams and guitarist Pete Graves guide us through the EP, track by track…
