A few weeks back Grubbs mentioned how stellar the new Converge record No Heroes was. He was dead right. No Heroes is the brutal (but totally listenable) new album from Boston’s Converge. Wasting no time, the first five songs clock in at 5:40 combined and are over before you know it. They’ll leaving you lying on your floor bloodied and wondering exactly what hit you (if only so you can go back for more).
This album is on par with their metalcore classic Jane Doe and (like that album) is more pummeling than 2004’s You Fail Me. It is the aural equivalent of having your still-beating heart ripped from you chest. No Heroes is exhausting but excellent and out now on Epitaph Records. Highly rec’d as one of 2006’s best.
