YMMV: Converge

  • Awesome Music: Pretty much all of Jane Doe, but especially the title track.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Of all the Metalcore bands out there, Converge is one of the few that metalheads generally respect.
  • Growing the Beard: While never a bad band, they really seemed to find their feet after hiring drummer Ben Koller: it's no coincidence that the first album he played on, Jane Doe, is universally considered to be their best.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Phoenix In Flames. Sweet dreams.
  • Magnum Opus: Jane Doe is generally agreed to be their greatest moment. Others would make the argument with Axe to Fall and All We Love We Leave Behind.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Jacob Bannon's visual art may come off as this to some.
    • Some of Jacob's earlier lyrics are more than a little creepy. From "Year of the Swine":
    Bleeding softly
    It's late and my ears can't listen
    and there is no one to lift me to my feet
    But still I dream of you
    twisting and contorting beneath a garbage bag veil
    • 3 words: PHOENIX IN FLAMES.
    • The video for "Axe To Fall" Enjoy!
  • Tough Act to Follow: It's pretty much a given that any album they release will be compared with Jane Doe.
    • Axe to Fall and All We Love We Leave Behind however seem to be aversions, as fans usually rank it next or even higher than Jane Doe.
  • Wangst: A common criticism of Jacob Bannon's lyrics, which is why it's convenient that no one can understand his vocals anyway.
