Converge offers all-star Entombed cover on new Napalm Death split

Holy smokes! ALARM’s fan-boy meter is registering off the charts, and for good reason: hardcore quartet Converge is covering Entombed’s classic “Wolverine Blues” on a new seven-inch split with pioneering grindcore outfit Napalm Death. And it gets better, because the cover includes guests in the form of Tomas Lindberg (At the Gates, Disfear), Aaron Turner (Split Cranium, Mamiffer, ex-Isis), and members of The Hope Conspiracy and Trap Them. Calling it “epic” seems like an understatement.

The rest of the split record isn’t too shabby either. Converge’s side includes “No Light Escapes,” taken from the recording sessions for its upcoming full-length album, and Napalm’s side has two brand-new tunes as well. A release date has yet to be announced, but the self-released record should be coming soon, with distribution via Deathwish. Check out Converge vocalist Jacob Bannon’s artwork below.
