Converge, Napalm Death, Megadeth members record album
Converge vocalist Jacob Bannon (also of Wear Your Wounds, Umbra Vitae, etc.) has revealed that he has a fledgling project with Shane Embury of Napalm Death, Dirk Verbeuren of Megadeth and Jesper Liveröd of Nasum, and that the quartet recently finished a new twelve-song album. A release schedule for the outing has yet to be divulged (along with a name), though Bannon did provide the following information amid an interview with "Mosh Talks With Beez" for Knotfest.com:
"Aside from the Umbra [Vitae] record I actually finished another album before the pandemic situation hit here in the States. We didn't totally put that on ice, but it definitely delayed getting that out to the world. "It's something totally new for me, where Umbra is a band—a proper band—and Converge and Wear Your Wounds are proper bands, this is more of a project that might have some live elements at some point. But I wrote a album with Shane Embury from Napalm Death, Dirk from Megadeth who also used to play drums in Soilwork and Jesper from Nasum. "And we recorded a 12-song album and we're really excited about it. And we're gonna get that out to the world, I don't know, hopefully in the next few months, we'll see what happens."You can check out the full interview here: [via ThePRP]
