I didn't get their set, but the last three songs were from the forthcoming album, which I'll be tempted to buy.
Converge isn't necessarily about musicianship (though they're great musicians). They're about tearing your head off. I can't wait for their new album, it's going to be insane.
God, I wish this show wasn't on a Thursday night. And in Phoenix
