Converge Unveils New Song On Spin.com; 'Axe To Fall' Pre-Order Starts Today!

In preparation for the release of their magnum opus Axe To Fall on October 20, essential hardcore pioneers Converge have debuted the title track from their forthcoming release on SPIN.com today and have launched a pre-order e-store for 2009's most anticipated hardcore-metal album.

In August Converge released the first track from Axe To Fall, "Dark Horse," which Stereogum praised as having "everything you could want from a Converge song -- knotty guitars, deep hardcore breakdowns, gnarled howls, and a triumphant blast of a finish -- along with an updated dark-progressive feel you'll find threaded throughout." Since its release the internet was set ablaze with swirling speculation of metal album of the year and mass critical acclaim.

Now, a month from release Converge have unveiled their teeth gnashing title track from Axe To Fall on SPIN.com who say "this foursome smash, crash, and destroy with foot-stomping appeal: Like a dropping guillotine, a screeching guitar riff falls into a cacophony of heavy guitar distortion, swelling bass, breakneck drum fills, and the hardcore screams of frontman Jacob Bannon."

After two decades of crafting some of the most influential, groundbreaking and important music in the history of hardcore and amassing a worldwide cult following, the rabid demand for Converge's seventh studio release and what many critics believe to be the best metal-hardcore album of 2009, Axe To Fall, is at an all time high.

Starting today, Converge and Epitaph are offering multi-tiered pre-order packages through KingsRoadMerch.com and DeathWishInc.com for the year's most ferocious, face-melting album. Details are below.
