Back in 2013, the Boston hardcore/metal legends Converge earned an Album Of The Week for their furious All We Love We Leave Behind. And though it’s not exactly common practice to drop a video a year and a half after the album comes out, Converge operate on their own timetable, and they’ve just shared an epic six minute clip for two of the album’s songs, “Precipice” and the title track. In the video, director Craig Murray uses hand-drawn and stop-motion animation alongside live action to tell the story of a burly bare-chested motherfucker and his adventures with burning houses, icy lakes, and vengeful dead dogs. Or something. Honestly, I have no idea what this video’s narrative is supposed to represent, but it’s all pretty badass regardless. Watch it below.
All We Love We Leave Behind is out now on Epitaph.
