    I can honestly say the same. I listened to every album prior to Jane Doe a handful of times while everything Jane Doe and after has been in the dozens if not more. I'm not a hardcore music hater but it doesn't bring me as much enjoyment as the recent output.

    Really? I find that very interesting since it's been their latest stuff that's been so boring to me. I think what I always loved about Converge was how progressive each album sounded production wise and sonically ... you could hear them experimenting with each new album but since No Heroes I feel like all their albums have a similar sound. It kinda bores me and it makes me mad that Kurt Ballou thought that You Fail Me needed a remastering a few years back and adjusted the mixing that I loved so much from the original. Oh well.

    Who even knows...it was a strange choice.

    apologies for the photo size but being a fan for years this is oddly my first wearable merch from the band so I went classic.

    Well, that's not too bad, that's like $50 a ticket. I certainly hope you're not footing the bill for the other 3 people you bought tickets for though... then I can see your concern, lol.

    But I know the feeling having to be "the friend" that always buys the concert tickets FFS....

    Pretty much is actually lol. Mine + the wife's, the other two are for my friend and his wife...though he's not just my friend of 15 years but also my tattoo artist that doesn't charge me more than a few beers per 5 hour tattoo session, so I toss him a free show now and then.

    It was a hell of a fucking night. Some pictures are on my Instagram:

    https://www.instagram.com/otnavuskire/

    I'll write some more when I get home.

    EDIT: That was a really special night. I wasn't familiar with The Cancer Conspiracy before tonight (although you'd think I would be, considering they're from Northern VT, where I live). They put on a good set. It was only two songs long, but a good half hour. Old Man Gloom was who I was primarily there for, and they didn't disappoint. Stephen Brodsky did a great job filling in for Caleb. I'm not as into Converge or Cave In, and it was my first time seeing either of them, but I'd happily see both of them live again. I'm a bit bruised from the crowd during Converge. That was a fun set. Cave In's set was really special, with Caleb's brother filling in on bass for the first half, and then Nate joining for the second. The "surprise" finale with everyone joining together to perform as Zozobra was really spectacular as well. Aaron Turner is a beast. I'm not sure who the second person who came out on vocals was though. Anyone know? (EDIT: Figured it out, it's Kevin Baker of All Pigs Must Die!) They closed with "A Distant Star Fades", which is exactly what I was hoping they'd close with. I teared up a little during that.

    Next up, try to get a ticket for the L.A. benefit with the ISIS REUNION!!!

    A guy from Cult Leader was watching the show. His apparent gf is this chick @sweetestfriend on IG. She has some good videos of the show on her story as well, but they will be gone by tomorrow night so watch quickly!

    Captured livestream here:

    I love Converge, but Bannon live has been laughably bad for awhile, they were the low point of the entire thing for me. Nate fucking Newton though, holy shit, dude was all over the entire set.

    here's the problem - jacob's vocals are bone fucking dry. if you're going to cup the mic and scream the way he does, you need some fucking reverb and i don't understand why he's always mixed so terribly! the 5.1 mix on "thousands of miles between us" is a fucking joke because the center channel is just his isolated, dry vocals, and it sounds abominable.

    Most of my contemporary 'metal' tastes all spring from this whole Boston-area family of sorts (Cave In, Converge *got into them first during No Heroes era*, OMG, Zozobra, Isis, Sumac, Doomriders, etc.), and Caleb's death is very tragic.

    Wish I could have been at the Boston show or be at the upcoming LA show. Enjoy- and much love to those who can and support.

    I've often thought of that...that if you lived in the Boston area, there's a higher probability that at least one of those bands (which all kick full ass) would be playing like every few months. Would be so sick.
