As expected, Massachusetts heavy music pioneers Converge have released a new four-song EP titled Beautiful Ruin. Recorded during sessions for their 2017 album, The Dusk In Us, the EP completes the release of all their recorded material from that time period. Beautiful Ruin was produced and mixed by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at his Godcity studio in Salem, MA and is available for purchase in vinyl and digital formats. The band has premiered a Tony Wolski-directed music video for "Melancholia": Meanwhile, the entire EP can be streamed now via YouTube: Converge - Beautiful Ruin artwork

Tim Lambesis here, i really hope these guys move splatter vinyl better than we do.

Tim Lambesis here, I think AILD is as influential if not more influential than Converges. #mala (make America Lambesis again.)

Jacob, you're 41 years old.

Haven't heard this yet cuz I was sent to MetalBlade to cover the AILD story and I had an elderly woman just a short while's come up to me - she came up to me and said that we at CNN should get the fck out of this auditorium.

If they don't press a CD version, then how will I see deez nuts?


anonymous 6/29/2018 7:57:03 AM

Woah that sounds like a NEW obituary song. Lol?


anonymous 6/29/2018 8:11:55 AM

the splatter prints all sold out and were received famously. a quick site check confirms only a couple swirl prints (second iteration) are left. only jobless virgins are spamming otherwise. AILD >ZAO >converge

Todd Jones is rolling over in his grave from these frickin' posers!!!! NAILS RIPOFF BAND = CONVERGE


anonymous 6/29/2018 8:18:15 AM

I work at GZ in the czech repbublic. We only did one run of splatter vinyls for metal blade. Seems like it was a failure, they never ordered more

since axe to fall he's been recycling distance and meaning in different ways


marching_band_rules 6/29/2018 8:23:11 AM

fck i meant hell to pay


anonymous 6/29/2018 8:35:14 AM

Code orange > zao > converge > aild

"since axe to fall he's been recycling distance and meaning in different ways" I think modern Converge sounds a lot more like You Fail Me than Hell to Pay or anything on Jane Doe


fourthgradecocktease 6/29/2018 10:08:28 AM

First he was coral blue, now he's permanent blue. Buy yourself an ice cream cone and cheer the fck up, Jake. Anyway this shit is poppin. Long live.


anonymous 6/29/2018 12:08:23 PM

i like the video. it is edgy. the part where the guy is smashing the rock on the other guy made my pee pee move.


spaceghhost 6/29/2018 12:18:58 PM

Love this band. You haters can stick it up your ass.


anonymous 6/29/2018 1:06:22 PM

Are we allowed to say f@ggotry on LG anymore? Because this is it in its purest form.


anonymous 6/29/2018 1:12:50 PM

Jacob, you're 41 years old. ^^^^^ So are Kanye West and Tom Brady. So what?


anonymous 6/29/2018 1:21:05 PM

The armature of the short film/music vid: get drunk and kill guys in suits that look like you, bc when you do a half naked woman in the desert will dance around in a serpentine way. ...Still better than anything AILD could ever fart out.


anonymous 6/29/2018 2:26:43 PM

^^ lol trash take. this is nothing but distorted noise layered with horrid vocals. no one actually likes this, they just pretend to online. AILD is more relevant to metalcore than this band could ever dream of. sh*t tier lover


anonymous 6/29/2018 7:06:35 PM

Bannon box don't sound too shabby here; at least he's not shrieking like a banshee under distortion. Thing is if you hear this song live he'll just cup the mic and make one monosyllabic bark over and over. Converge fanboy dweebs will lap up these breadcrumbs like always tho.


anonymous 6/29/2018 7:08:33 PM

Chris Colohan >>> Jake Bannon >>> Teddy Boy Greg >>> Tim Lambesis


anonymous 6/29/2018 7:12:57 PM

No one actually listens to and enjoys this crap. Go listen to The Spits and stop being such a try hard with tattoos all over your damn head faking aggression on every splatter cover record.


anonymous 6/29/2018 7:26:17 PM

I like Converge, but this is not good.


anonymous 6/29/2018 11:49:24 PM

dad rock


anonymous 6/30/2018 9:59:01 AM

I like as i lay dying and this is not good


anonymous 6/30/2018 2:13:51 PM

^^ Dude as i lay dying is awesome. have you heard about their singer? guy tried to kill his wife. that is also awesom


anonymous 6/30/2018 2:59:30 PM

no one cares loser ^^ only you betas on here acting offended. stop crying


anonymous 7/1/2018 6:57:28 AM
