The countdown is on until Converge drops their new album Bloodmoon: 1 on Nov. 19, but before the big day arrives we're getting at least one more new song, the spiraling, dark new song "Coil" that you can hear in the player below.

It's an epic, slow burn piece of music that starts with a mesmerizing spiraling solo guitar bit and whisper vocals that start to build with the addition of a guest Chelsea Wolfe vocal and expanding string backing and instrumentation.

"'Coil' turned out to be one of my favorite songs I’ve ever been a part of," says Converge's Jacob Bannon. "There is an infectious slow build that ends up becoming theatrical in tone. Lyrically it was a true collaboration, with all of us expanding on each other’s ideas as they came to be. I believe Chelsea’s vocal was the starting point in that for this one. Kurt [Ballou] really pushed vocal harmonies to a new level as well. Encouraging many of Steve [Brodsky]'s ideas while we were in the studio tracking together. This one really has every one of us firing on all cylinders creatively.”

So far, Converge have provided a more experimental sounding effort than their usual hardcore heaviness, with Bannon revealing that it's been by design. “We wanted to do something grander than the typical four-piece Converge music,” Bannon says of the project, which finds them not only working with Wolfe but Ben Chisholm as well. “I feel like everyone just kept the music in mind and wanted to do what’s best for the song,” adds Stephen Brodsky.

“The project stretched my vocals in new ways. It’s so different than what I normally sing over that I was able to open up and be vulnerable with my vocals,” says Wolfe, who appears on the song alongside Bannon. “Our dynamics are pushing and pulling in all different directions on this record, and I find that to be creatively rewarding,” adds Bannon.

Converge, "Coil" Lyrics

venomously
winding and weaving
blood and ivory
obscure belief

a hidden hunger
writhing and seething
basking in the warmth
of love unseen

it’s like
a serpent coiled inside
it’s like
the sun shone on serpent’s lies
and it’s like this life
this life

it’s like a serpent
coiled inside me
sign of the sacred song
slithering sweetly
odd with intention
this coil furls on and on

slither with odd intentions
this coil furls on and on
the sacred song

venomously
winding and weaving
blood and ivory
obscure belief

a hidden hunger
writhing and seething
basking in the warmth
of love unseen

it’s like
a serpent coiled inside
it’s like
the sun shone on serpent’s lies

and it’s like
this life, this life

it’s like a serpent
coiled inside me
sign of the sacred song
slithering sweetly
odd with intention
this coil furls on and on

sign of the sacred song
this coil furls on and on

sign of the sacred song
this coil furls on and on
basking in the warmth
of love unseen
this coil furls on and on
