Converge, ‘No Heroes’ (Epitaph)
No Heroes isn’t quite a back-to-roots move for these savants of metalcore, who practically perfected the stuff years ago. Frankly, five years after the masterpiece Jane Doe and two since its textured sequel, You Fail Me, it would be virtually impossible to go back to the more basic grind — their chops are too good now. There’s actual singing from Jacob Bannon on the epic “Grim Heart/Black Rose”; the rest is brilliant, blazing, and brutal in equal measure.
