Can somebody please explain to me what the fuck i wrestled a bear once is? I'm scared to even listen to their music because I've seen nobody but the biggest possible douche bags talk about that band. I won't even give them a chance. I know that shit must be terrible.
Also, I fucking hated The Endless Blockade. So yeah.
part 1: DON'T LISTEN TO IT. You know all those white belt "grind" bands that put blast beats over all those horrific Korn/System of a Down type riffs that just go way up the fretboard on the smaller strings trying to sound as obnoxious as possible? More of that shit, but worse than ever.

RE: Converge. Back in high school I was a huge fan, loved it all. As time passed, for a while I thought Jane Doe was the only good one with maybe a couple random good songs elsewhere. Now... yeesh. I tried buying the last new album from a couple years ago (I think it was called Axe to Fall) and I'm not even sure I got through it once. The song they put up as their preview song sounded like fucking techno music with a hardcore beat because of the stupid riff.

i loathe all Converge. They fucking suck.
I went to some big shitty metalfest type tour once (took my brother and his friends because both GWAR and Cannibal Corpse were on the same ticket. Twas i think both of our first times seeing both bands.) Anyway, Converge played and they were so horrible. There was a group of dudes heckling them while they played and the guy with the brown hair playing bass or guitar (dunno as they sucked to much to pay attention), started yelling at them from onstage that he was gonna "Come down there and kick your asses after the set". Needless to say, the pussy didn't come out into the crowd.
Also, The Chariot played that show and they were so horrible that people wearing The Chariot shirts at the show were heckled severely for the rest of the show (and they played early).
I think this should hardly count since no one ever mentioned that band before becoming active again. That reminds me...when did black metal warriors start caring about Mortuary Drape? I don't remember anyone ever talking about that mediocre band until maybe two years ago when the punks my way went through a serious black metal binge.
I'm pretty sure that's the third time you've told that story on this board, or maybe just the second time on here and you said something to me about it once on FB, haha.
wouldn't be surprised. i am that guy with a horrible memory of who/where i told stories and i tend to tell the same people the same story like 5 times. Seriously, it is regular occurrence that my fiance tells me that i have already told her that like 3 times.

if you find out, please let me know. i have been wondering the same thing about this band and Maniac Butcher.

I've had the misfortune of seeing part of a Converge set a few years back and I've never seen so much flannel in my life. During the brief moment I did watch it seemed like they were more into themselves than they were into the music they were playing. I'm actually surprised none of the band members flexed their biceps then kissed them; maybe they save that for the finale.
I like Converge (and the new song), but I keep hearing about how much of a cocksucker Jake Bannon is. A friend of mine's old band played with Converge years ago, and he said Jake threw the biggest bitch fit because they didn't have any ginger root there waiting on him when they got to the venue. He said the rest of the dudes in the band were pretty cool, though.

jacob bannon is easily the worst part of converge. this takes the whole girlfriend metal thing that went around the net for a minute and spikes it into the ground. lanky vocal processed guy you wanna fuck metal.
ben koller though? beastly.
and i know everyone hates brutal truth, but i got a soft spot for them. maybe their slop?

another shooting myself in the foot probably, extortion. not live, not on record, nothing. in fact, i blame extortion's shit set as the cause for me missing iron lung (they only got to play two songs cause the show went too late)
