[slidepress gallery=’converge-091119′]

Show attendees lined up in front of The Palladium long before doors opened at 6:00pm in anticipation of headliners, DETHKLOK. Once the sold out crowd was allowed in, HIGH ON FIRE went to work warming up the crowd with their rockin’ brand of doom. While CONVERGE were setting up, some members of the crowd had their reservations about a bunch of short hairs who don’t appear on Headbangers Ball or covers of mainstream metal mags. However, the band quickly went to work pummeling the crowd with their brand of raging hardcore. Their set consisted of songs from their last four albums. There was a good number of CONVERGE fans that came out to represent. Whether it was the chaotic and heavy guitars and bass, the powerhouse drumming, or anti-rockstar vocal approach, CONVERGE introduced the majority of the hardcore virgin crowd to what they were all about.
