For almost 25 years, Converge has been one of music's most intense and interesting bands. Last month, the foursome released its eighth album, All We Love We Leave Behind; it works as a reminder of how exactly Converge has stayed current for longer than many of its fans have been breathing. After the guest-heavy 2009 album Axe to Fall, Converge opted for a more streamlined effort. That is to say, the deep wells of influence that allow Converge to nimbly combine incendiary grindcore, jagged hardcore and deliberately composed post-rock aren't the focus here; instead, the album, like Converge on any stage, is a product of the band's locked-in chemistry and powerful urgency. Torche, billed as the headliner, is a steady draw with big riffs and bigger hooks, but Converge will be a tough act to follow. With Kvelertak and Whips/Chains. —Bryan C. Reed
