The Secret – Solve et Coagula (Southern Lord – 2010)
Converge sent me on a path and this record set that path in stone. For an album so full of raw aggression, there’s no shortage of sinister atmosphere either. Tossing and turning between metallic d-beat attacks, crushing riff worship and tangible moments of evil where you can almost touch the devil. This is the soundtrack to punching holes in your wall. You should submit to it, from start to finish. But if you need the TL;DR version just watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nX-5alDQ14
For Fans Of: Holding invisible oranges every time a riff drops.
