Converge "Petitioning Forever"

This is a double 12"LP version of the band's first two full length albums. Remixed by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou @ God City Studios and remastered by Alan Douches at West West Side. These two brought new life to these classic recordings, allowing them to rage with a level of intensity many never thought possible.

Pulling from both metal and punk influences, Converge wrote an album in "Petitioning the Empty Sky" that literally created a sub-genre. Too metal for some and too hardcore for others, this recording is the anthemic beginnings of a band paving their own creative road. "When Forever Comes Crashing" is the album that showed Converge growing in new experimental directions. Again mutating and mixing the worlds of hardcore and metal even further. Paying as much homage to Dischord artists as much as it pays homage to the classic Earache catalog. A brutally heavy and truly groundbreaking album.
