You’ve never previously been able to describe a Converge record as mystical, but such is the arcane allure that defines this unique album, especially on Coil and the title track. Chelsea’s distinctively haunting contributions are inevitably a major factor here, but Stephen also makes his melodic presence felt throughout, with Jacob Bannon’s harsher throat completing a vocal triptych that never fails to thrill, their very different but complementary styles weaving together as if they were always supposed to co-exist.
Does Bloodmoon: I sound much like Converge? Only occasionally. Could it be their best album to date nevertheless? Quite possibly.
For fans of: Chelsea Wolfe, Amenra, Alice In Chains
