* LoudnessWar: Everything from ''Jane Doe'' onwards is completely brickwalled. This is probably due to the influence of mastering engineer Alan Douches.

* LastNoteNightmare: The previously mentioned "[[EarRape Phoenix In Flames]]" is one song's worth of this, as it follows the downtempo, almost {{shoegaze}}y Phoenix in Flight.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Most of Converge's output is ''at least'' an 8. At their most, they're a solid 11 (take "Phoenix In Flames" as an example). Most of the time they are a 10, however, making them one of the heaviest (if not ''the'' heaviest) {{Metalcore}} bands around.

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]].
