Jacob Bannon (vocalist/lyricist for Converge, cofounder of Deathwish) has been one of the most influential and praised figures in aggressive music for over a decade. Never content in having one sole musical voice, he has always experimented outside of his efforts in Converge since their early 90's inception. After years of experimenting with home recordings on his own, he collaborated with friends Ryan Parker and Kurt Ballou to release Supermachiner "Rise Of The Great Machine" album in 2000. Comprised of original four track recordings and studio reworks of solo material, the album was a serious departure from his previous efforts in Converge. Textural, dark, and uniquely unclassifiable, the album was praised by press worldwide. Since then J. Bannon has continued writing and recording on his own, compiling a wealth of material for future solo releases under a variety of monikers. Fingers crossed, we hope to have releases surface sooner than later. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
