Converge’s Kurt Ballou Explains How The Band Found Its Sound

The guitarist and producer talks about the merging of genres that gave his band their unique edge.

Earlier this month, we premiered our first episode of of Mixing Masters, a partnership with Unstoppable Recording Machine’s Nail The Mix, in which we sat down with Converge guitarist and producer Kurt Ballou and discussed the role of a producer in metal and hardcore music.

In our second episode, Kurt talks about Converge’s history, specifically how the band merged punk, hardcore, and metal influences to create the sound that made them the band they are. It’s a fascinating look at how a band’s take on varying genres can lead to game-changing artistic innovation.
