In anticipation of one of 2009’s most anticipated metal/hardcore albums, Converge has debuted their video for the record’s title track on Fearnet.com today. Watch this enthralling nightmarish vision below.

From the dark recesses of director Craig Murray’s mind comes the horror inspired music video for “Axe To Fall.” Capturing the song’s break-neck speed and ferocity perfectly, the short follows excruciating scenes of torture and masochism that give birth to an awe inspiring bio-mechanical abomination.


Converge recently debuted the teeth gnashing title track from Axe To Fall on SPIN.com, who said “this foursome smash, crash, and destroy with foot-stomping appeal: Like a dropping guillotine, a screeching guitar riff falls into a cacophony of heavy guitar distortion, swelling bass, breakneck drum fills, and the hardcore screams of frontman Jacob Bannon.”

The year’s most aggressive album, ‘Axe To Fall’, is set for release on October 20 via Epitaph Records (vinyl on Deathwish Inc.). Fans can pre-order the album from Kingsroad Merch or Deathwish Inc. Converge is currently on tour with Mastodon and Dethklok.
