"The Blood Of Thine Enemies" is the debut solo recording from J. Bannon (Converge, Wear Your Wounds, Supermachiner) released in 2008. "The Blood..." is a minimalist six minute emotional dirge. Haunting in it's simplicity, this release foreshadows the anticipated "Wear Your Wounds" album, due out on Deathwish soon.
Meant to be a stand alone piece, "The Blood..." was originally available as a one sided 7"EP (w/ an etched B-side). The physical version is now sold out.

Converge always astound in their ability to grow while still satisfying fans who love their core elements. This release also shows how good they are at making use of a limited amount of time to still make a big impact.

On this record, they merge the hardcore/metal sound with the space rock/shoegaze sound. This is also the expanded edition with tracks that didn't make the cut on what was to be their 2nd RCA album. You could tell a song like "Prognosis" was the next step forward for that. There's even a version of the song with Caleb giving his signature vocals during one segment, sadly you'll have to find that somewhere in the dark corners of the web. nfarr56
