In 2012 Converge released their most recent full length, All We Love We Leave Behind. The album was a tremendous banger (for lack of a better word) from start to finish, highlighting all the greatest aspect of Converge's sound in one gargantuan assault. It was a peak for the band, both emotionally and musically, and showed a more diverse and channelled Converge than ever previously heard before. Fans and critics alike praised the album, clamoring for more Converge, but were instead presented with about a billion re-releases. A growing curiosity over the future of new music began to arise in the face of a lack of news, and some (me) began to worry slightly about the future of the band.
OK I'm going to open this post by just saying: HELL YEAH. That was my first reaction when I learned that Dance With the Dead (of whom we've already spoken) were working with Scandroid on a remix of one of his tracks for his upcoming release, Dreams of Neo-Tokyo. Apparently, the new release will feature remixes of all tracks with vocals from Scandroid's amazing self-titled retrowave release. The idea is to breathe new life into these tracks and re-release them as their own unique story suite. Enter Dance With the Dead and their unique mix of rock and metal with retrowave. Hear the result of this incredible collaboration right below!
