Converge and Napalm Death to Release Split
Recorded as part of their new album sessions, Converge offer up the new song “No Light Escapes,” which is already a staple of their live set. Also on their side of the release will be 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 and Deathwish.
On the flip side, metal pioneers Napalm Death offer up two new tracks — 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. Also on the release, Napalm Death offer the slower and textural new song “No Impediment To Triumph (Bhopal).”
No official release date has yet been announced.
