Boner Alert: CONVERGE and NAPALM DEATH To Release Split 7″

 

Commence pants shitting my dear readers because Deathwish Inc. has just announced that motherfucking Converge and motherfucking Napalm Death are preparing to release a split 7″ / digital EP! As of now, there is no release date for the split yet, however I can tell you that it will consist of two songs by each band.

The Napalm Death side will feature a traditional grind assault titled “Will By Mouth” as well as a slower, more doomier track titled “No Impediment To Triumph (Bhopal)” which is about the Union carbide gas plant explosion in India (if you don’t know about this, read up, shit is fucked). The Converge side will feature one of the new songs that the band has been playing live, “No Light Escapes”, and a collaborative cover of the Entombed (LULZ as if Deathwish hasn’t paid enough homage to Entombed lately) classic “Wolverine Blues”.

“Coming soon.
Self released by Converge and Napalm Death, exclusively Distributed by Deathwish Direct.

Legendary bands Converge and Napalm Death have come together for a split release, bridging the worlds of personal and politically driven extreme music.

Recorded as part of their new album sessions, Converge offer up the blazing new song “No Light Escapes”. Already a staple of their live set, this whirlwind of an emotional charged song is a soon to be a discordant hardcore/metal anthem for the band. Also on the release, Converge offer a “We Are The World” styled rendition of the influential Entombed classic “Wolverine Blues”. Joining them in tribute is a number of friends including Tomas Lindberg (Disfear, At The Gates, Lock Up), Aaron Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom, Split Cranium), Kevin Baker (APMD, The Hope Conspiracy), Brian Izzi (Trap Them), and more. A new Converge album will surface later in 2012 on Epitaph/Deathwish.

On the flip side, metal pioneers Napalm Death offer up two new aural monsters. First, “Will By Mouth” erupts in classic grind fashion. A buzz of brutal guitars and a crushing blast beat lay a foundation for Barney Greenway’s vicious vocal attack. All of it uniquely bleeding together to paint a vivid picture of social unrest. Also on the release, Napalm Death offer the slower and textural new song “No Impediment To Triumph (Bhopal)”. A deeply resonant number that lyrically sheds light on the horrific Bhopal Gas Tragedy of 1984. Without question, “No Impediment…” is truly powerful and poignant moment for this legendary band”
