A #brutalistjr @godcitymusic build we did here in the shop & a tribute to one of the greatest prizefighters of all time John L.

Jesuit “Discography”
Found this in the used bins today and picked it up having never heard any of their music before. I’ve heard the name around in the past and the hype sticker won me over quickly with a lineup including Nate Newton (Converge, Old Man Gloom) and Brian Benoit (Dillinger Escape Plan)

Kurt Ballou of @converge and @godcitymusic is selling his Reptilian production proof on reverb. Link is on his page. Missed out on the limited run? Here's your chance to own one of the first ones built, owned by the guy that helped me design it. No, I'm not building any more of these. #converge #godcity #kurtballou #snkpedals #reptilian #boostedfuzz #theduskinus #effects #effectspedal

Dylan Carlson ‎– Conquistador, brillante álbum es solitario de este señor hay que cerrar los ojos y dejarse llevar por su guitarra 🎸. #dylancarlson#conquistador#earthband#hollycarlson#dronemusic#dronemetal#experimentalmusic#postrock#ambientmusic#kurtballou#emmaruthrundle

Been a fan of @torche_band since I saw then opening up for @theswordofficial in Brooklyn a decade ago. They were ten times heavier than the Sword and the Sword even admitted it later on during their set! They remind me of what Soundgarden might've sounded like if they made their debut then and not in the 80's. Way sludgier, while still poppy to a point. This album here, released three years ago is probably their best to date, along with being their @relapserecords debut, and I'm totally looking forward to the next one.

Some of my last builds: Acapulco Gold w/ Gain (Djain) and @godcitymusic Brutalist Jr. - sound even more killer when stacked. #acapulco #gold #godcity #godcityinstruments #pedalboard #pedal #effects #gear #fuzz #converge #kurtballou

Converge is without a doubt the most influental metallic hardcore band. One would think that 28 years would take a toll on the band's quality but not in Converge's case.
"The Dusk In Us" was five years in the making and the band sounds vital as ever.
Bannon's haunting, emotional and primal screams and shrieks reach a new high while Ballou's trademark riffs enrichen this glorious experience. Newton's bass sound is huge but the true highlight (for me) is Koller's drumming. His rawness and technicality are unparalleled.

Unlike most staple bands, Converge are actually evolving and refining their sound. In a world filled with overproduced and sterile garbage Ballou's production prowess is perfectly showcased here. He gives every instrument space to breathe thus forming a brutal and excellent sounding record for this type of music. "I Can Tell You Everything About Pain", "Arkihipov Calm", "Reptilian" they do no wrong, every song is intense and memorable in their own unique way. Converge are known for their emotional vocal performance but on "The Dusk In Us" they elevate it to a new level. "A Single Tear", "Trigger" or the title track are powerhouses, the band shamelessly shows their more vulnerable side and it works. Lots of bands pretend to be untouchable but the truth is we are all human and showing your true nature is more "manly" than acting tough. For example, when I carefully listened "A Single Tear" I realized it's about the birth of a new and fragile life, Bannon is now a father and despite its unflichning aggression, the song feels human. Converge always captivated me with their rawness, underrated technicality and lyricism but this record blew my mind.

Few bands sound as good Converge, they proved (again) they're on top and outshine a lot of "classic" bands with their visceral and creative performance
"The Dusk In Us" continues the band's amazing streak of excellent records I am beyond pleased that I exist at the same time when this monster of a band exists. Future classic everybody and one of 2017's finest.
