Not too long ago I told you about the split 7″ that would be released featuring Funeral For A Friend and Boysetsfire covering each others songs. I am so excitebike for this split it’s unbelievable. I also stated that I wasn’t a huge fan of Boysetsfire, but the bands just released their cover of FFAF‘s “10:45 Amsterdam Conversations” and it’s great. They totally captured the song in all it’s glory and still made it theirs. Check it out below. Continue reading

Converge, easily one of the best bands of all time, released their highly-appreciated All We Love We Leave Behind and blew everyone away. It’s been more than two years since the album was release, but the band has just released a music video for “Precipice” and the albums title track “All We Love We Leave Behind” jointly.

Up until the release of their latest album Hellbound, I didn’t care about Fit For An Autopsy, but this new album was an awe-inspiring leap forward for FFAA. Never before had I heard them sound so tight and powerful. Well, according to the band, they have been “Nate Johnsoned.” What the hell does that mean?
