Converge are doing something different for their next album. As the metalcore pioneers revealed on Tuesday (Sept. 28), their 10th studio effort, Bloodmoon: I, will be a collaborative album featuring the band alongside doomy folk singer-songwriter Chelsea Wolfe.

Wolfe’s songwriting partner and bandmate, Ben Chisholm, plus Cave In singer-guitarist Stephen Brodsky, also contribute to the collection. That beefs Converge up to a seven-piece outfit for the unprecedented entry from the Massachusetts-based band comprised of lead vocalist Jacob Bannon, guitarist-producer Kurt Ballou, bassist Nate Newton and drummer Ben Koller. The reinforced group first collaborated under the name Blood Moon for a live performance at the 2016 Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands.

Down near the bottom of this post, watch the Emily Birds-directed music video for the song “Blood Moon” and see the album art and tracklist for Bloodmoon: I, which arrives in full on Nov. 19.

“We wanted to do something grander than the typical four-piece Converge music,” Bannon explains in a press release. “Our dynamics are pushing and pulling in all different directions on this record, and I find that to be creatively rewarding.”

Wolfe says the project “stretched my vocals in new ways. It’s so different than what I normally sing over that I was able to open up and be vulnerable with my vocals.” Brodsky adds, “I feel like everyone just kept the music in mind and wanted to do what’s best for the song[s].”

Black Sabbath Release ‘Never Say Die!’

No one could hold a candle to Black Sabbath for their first six albums, but in 1976 the knots frayed by bad contracts, fraudulent bookkeeping, alcohol and drug addiction and complete mental and physical exhaustion started to rapidly unravel. 1976’s Technical Ecstasy was an unfocused record without much bite. The end of an era came less than two years later when Black Sabbath released their final ‘70s album with Ozzy […]
