To live the life you want, you’ve abandoned those in need; a necessary casualty or so you believe. Our wake will always travel and well up in the eyes of those that you sacrificed in order to survive. I’m that aimless arrow lost from my very start, violence without purpose, born of broken hearts. No one will ever guide me as I sail through the air. Now I just bring sadness in those who choose to care. I know the tears they’re weeping and the damage they will take. It’s the curse of restlessness and the weight of your mistakes. They are those that love you and those that need you more than the sense of gravity banging down your door. I’m that aimless arrow, lost from my very start, violence without purpose, born of broken hearts. No one will ever guide me as I sail through the air. Now I just bring sadness in those who choose to care. Aimless arrow lost from the start.
Converge have released a new music video featuring “Aimless Arrow”, the first single off of their upcoming LP All We Love We Leave Behind. The highly anticipated album is set to drop October 9th via Epitaph Records.

I have never really been into Converge up to this point. Something about them never resonated with me, but this new song is pretty awesome. Maybe because it’s a little more accessible vocally. Whatever the reason, if you like heavy music, check it out.
I don’t know what’s about this song, and this album, but I couldn’t avoid to keep listening to it over and over. I never listen to music this extreme (I mean, come on, this is almost thrash metal! And I hate growl!), but there’s something in here I can’t put my finger on.
