Converge is a prolific punk-metal band formed in 1990 and after several singles, released their first full-length, Halo in a Haystack, in 1994. By 2000, with the release of their fourth full-length, Jane Doe, Converge were regarded as one of the most original and innovative bands to emerge from the punk underground. A quartet consisting of Jacob Bannon, Kurt Ballou, Nate Newton and Ben Koller, the band also found time to lend out members to various side projects, including Kingdom of the Sun, Old Man Gloom and Kid Kilowatt (the short-lived band that also included members of Cave In). Known for intense live shows and extensive touring, the band played over 600 shows in ten years, making it possible for them to retain their cult status within the punk underground without the kind of commercial success that has vaulted other punk bands into the middle of alternative rock radio and press.

Progressive Crust band from Salt Lake City, Utah
All heavy/aggressive music comes from the same place. The biggest distinction that should be made between bands of this type shouldn't be by (sub) genrefication, but simply by how authentically and effectively they convey what they're trying to convey. Hopefully the sounds we make and the way we operate makes that point clearer than words can, but in case they don't, here are the words. This is where we are coming from, forever have, and forever will.
Sam Richards - BASS
Mike Mason - GUITAR
Casey Hansen - DRUMS
