Once it was told that new generation of kids see bands like Converge as more extreme than either Deicide or Morbid and i would agree with this idea. While Converge may not be dealing with satanism and blasphemies in their lyrics, there are plenty of things about them that might make unprepared listener weak in his/her knees. For one - there's an unhuman shriek/hushed voice provided by Nate Newton, nothing that I ever heard anywhere else (well, maybe their colleagues Today Is The Day come quite close). Then there are pummeling guitar sounds and excellent drumwork all of which put together create bleak picture of life full of failed relationships, misery, desperation and god knows what else. Converge are experienced road warriors and it doesn't matter in the end that they don't have any platinum or well-selling discs - in my book they are one of the best bands to come out of the 90s so far.
