Petitioning the Empty Sky is an album by American metalcore band Converge. While many sources catalog the release as a studio album, the band considers this a compilation album as it's a collection of songs recorded at different times. While tracklists differ between releases, this album features studio recorded tracks along with live recordings of three songs. Petitioning the Empty Sky was released and distributed through several different labels beginning in the mid 90s.

Petitioning the Empty Sky Tracklist. 1. The Saddest Day Lyrics. Petitioning the Empty Sky Q&A. More Converge albums. The Dusk in Us. Show all albums by Converge.

Their second true full-length release, Petitioning The Empty Sky, defined metalcore and heavy music to come way back in 1996, and is thought by some to be their best release to this day. Petitioning begins with "The Saddest Day", which is appropriately the best song on the album and arguably the greatest song Converge have ever done. If you must listen to a Converge song, listen to this one, because they don't come any better. Amazing breakdown, awesome vocals, killer riffs.

Mastered at Max Trax. Tracks 9-11 were recorded live at WJUL on the air August 1995.

The first track on the album, "The Saddest Day," is one of the band's most revered and legendary songs, alone making Petitioning the Empty Sky a must-have for any fan of this genre.
