Converge - "Aimless Arrow" Video

This fall, Converge, the most important hardcore band of the last 20 years or so, will release their new album All We Love We Leave Behind. The album seems to stand in stark contrast to its predecessor, 2009′s ambitious and thoroughly face-ripping Axe To Fall, since it has no guest stars or outside collaborators. Guitarist Kurt Ballou, possibly the best producer currently working in hardcore and metal, engineered it, and it will probably rule. A 17-track deluxe edition of the album will include a 48-page book with art from frontman and iconic graphic designer Jacob Bannon. Below, check out the album’s tracklist and director Max Moore’s chaotic, nightmarish video for the explosive album opener “Aimless Arrow.” In the comments section, let us know if you made any sense out of it.

  1. I am super interested in a return to raw “unclassic” Converge that we heard on “You Fail Me”. “Axe to Fall” was a brilliant revisiting of the cohesion and laser-guided chaos of “Jane Doe” era with a few new tricks (namely the last few tracks)…but we all know they capable of that sound. This song is great because, once again, we get to hear this band of hardcore elders put out a single so diverse, weird and familiar all at once.

    Now, I can’t tell if the fact that this video teleports me to the early 2000′s is a good thing or a bad. Its a bit dopey for such an important and ever-relevant band as Converge.

  2. I need to listen to more converge.
