Converge - Live at the BBC

Who:  Converge

What:  Vinyl 7" release of a short live set recorded last year on BBC Radio One. Released on Deathwish Inc.

When:  March 2014

Where:  Salem, MA

Why:  Studio MV4 is the previous home to the legendary John Peel sessions, which birthed legendary recordings from artists like New Order, The Cure, Carcass, Napalm Death and countless others.

[The Radness Average (or star rating) is derived from assigning each song a number of stars based on a 1-5 scale, then adding the total number of stars, and then dividing that number of total stars by the number of songs on the record. A Radness Average of 4.0 or higher indicates a good or great record. A Radness Average of 2.0 or less indicates pure crap. Everything else is in the middle somewhere.]

Converge - Live at the BBC - Deathwish Inc.

1.  Dark Horse -- *****
2.  Axe to Fall -- *****
3.  Damages -- *****
4.  Hanging Moon -- *****

Radness Average:  5.000

Converge - Live at the BBC

Verdict:  A literally perfect EP. It is Converge's Peel Session after all. Can you believe that this is the first Converge record ever posted on No Funeral? Long overdue.
