Converge is a crossover HeavyMetal-HardcorePunk band formed in 1990 in Salem, Massachusetts, which has released seven studio albums to date. Considered to be a [[UrExample founding father]] of the {{Metalcore}} and Mathcore genres, the band helped define many facets of metallic hardcore for many bands to come. They are well-known for their early blend of extreme metal, hardcore punk and noise rock, coupled with the [[CarefulWithThatAxe various]] [[MetalScream vocal]] [[OurBansheesAreLouder stylings]] of vocalist Jacob Bannon. As such they have a very distinctive musical style, albeit one which is very abrasive and possibly unpleasant to first-time listeners. Despite this, over the years Converge has won a large fanbase and critical acclaim, with Sputnikmusic declaring that their 2001 release ''Jane Doe'' was the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome best album of the decade]].
