13.) Converge- All We Love We Leave Behind

Converge pretty much started the real version of Metalcore. Not your asking Alexandria crap that kids under 21 think about, or even when I started getting into metal with Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, and God Forbid. REAL Metalcore. Where it combines Hardcore, Punk over Metal riffs. To me this is in 3rd place for Converge albums behind Jane Doe and Axe to Fall (1st and 2nd place respectively). This is pure raw album (although it has great production), in a lot of way it really sounds like Converge live, in the studio. In a lot of ways this is a more Melodic album, but it is just as Chaotic as ever before. At nearly 40 minutes, it's the perfect length of controlled chaos. Converge gets it right every single time!
