POST-HARDCORE. True to themselves and their art, as always, no matter the cost, "axe to fall" continues to push relentlessly forward, much like a shark that needs to always keep swimming to survive. Where "no heroes" was a refinement and broadening of hostilities declared on previous assaults such as "jane doe", "axe to fall" returns to the more AmRep-inspired hardcore abrasions of "you fail me". "axe to fall" could be CONVERGE's most straightforward album, but refuses to dull down, with all of the same mind-blowing riffs, incredible drumming and howled vocals fans of the band have come to love. Vinyl comes housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.
