Converge, “Hell to pay”, Jane Doe
What makes Jane Doe different is that it’s not a simple good-bye, fond memory, or “fuck you”. It’s a panoramic view of a world collapsing. Nothing on this album that indicates that frontman Jacob Bannon will move past this relationship. The music – shifting between the nearly weeping guitar of “Thaw”, the schizophrenic twists of “Fault and Fracture”, and the pop introduction of “Distance And Meaning” – is the ultimate accompaniment to personal disintegration.
