Converge Have Announced The Details Of A New Collaborative Album ‘Bloodmoon: I’ – News
A project unlike any other.
Back in 2016 Converge revealed Bloodmoon, a collaborative experience with Chelsea Wolfe, Cave In/Mutoid Man’s Stephen Brodsky and Ben Chisholm, via a set of special and emotional shows.
Now the collective has come together for the first recorded piece of their exploratory art.
That comes in the form of ‘Bloodmoon: I’, which will be released on November 19.
Vocalist Jacob Bannon had this to say about the album:
“Our dynamics are pushing and pulling in all different directions on this record, and I find that to be creatively rewarding.”
And Chelsea had this to add:
“The project stretched my vocals in new ways. It’s so different than what I normally sing over that I was able to open up and be vulnerable with my vocals.”
The artwork looks like this:
And the tracklisting like this:
01. Blood Moon

You can hear the first taste of the record in the form of the opening track ‘Blood Moon’, an eight-minute epic of swirling atmosphere, crushing melody and ferocious crescendos.
It is absolutely fucking astounding, to be honest.
