To celebrate their 100th release Revelation has issued a comp that is comprised of unreleased, out of print, rare, live, and remixed songs by bands that have been on their label at one time or another. According to the liner notes, they really scrapped the bottom of the vaults trying to get the rarest and most interesting tracks for this comp, and I think they have accomplished it. Its sad that a comp made of B-sides and unreleased tracks can turn out to be one of the most interesting and diverse comps that I have heard in a long time. After hearing some of these songs that were left on the cutting room floor, I have to wonder what the A-side material must be like. I also was impressed that while most of the bands were hardcore bands, they all didn't sound alike and play Agnostic Front and Cro-Mag style music. Many of these bands had a style all their own, and made the disc much easier and more interesting to listen to.

The bands that I knew on here included Ignite, Sick Of It All, Shai Hulud and they deliver as always on here. Ignite does a new version of "You", which was much more mellow than I remember them being. SOIA deliver a song off of a out of print comp, which sounds like the typical SOIA. Shai Hulud provide a brand new song "He Who Says Farewell When the Road Darkens" good stuff as always, and quotes a line from J.R.R. Tolkien too. Other songs I liked included Quicksand's "Dine Alone" and I think this is now the next band I'm going to be getting into, Burn's "New Morality" Judas Factor "Song 22", and Farside " Dark". These were the songs that I found skipping to more often and looking for in record stores.

Not only was the music great, but the artwork was very cool as well. The cover and band names in the liner notes were written in flame, and accompanied each band are lyrics, pictures, and for some a quick bio or reason song was never used. Over all this comp was excellent, and did what a comp should, provided new material for the old fans, and introduce other bands to them. This comp is also cool in that it is all stuff that many people probably haven't heard before and give something to everyone. If you're a fan of hardcore you should pick this one up, especially if you like any of the bands on the comp, which I will list below for you.

Burn "New Morality" Unreleased song recorded in 1992
Sense Field "Shady Day" Rare B-side recorded during the "Building" sessions

By A Thread "Tainted" New exclusive track
Youth of Today "One Night Stand" Unreleased song from final recording session
The Movielife "Fake Blood" Rare song from first demo
Side by Side "Guilty" Unreleased song recorded at their last show

Wow, this reviewer must be 12.
All the comments sound like they came from the same range as well.

Dear pat:

yeah, you have an opinion so do we. nobody skewers you for having an opinion. apparently it's ok for you to disagree with us, but we can't disagree with you. you say we don't use our brains? that's funny, i was liberal years before i was punk. raised in a strong, influential conservative environment, i think i was one of the few that did use my brain. i really love people that complain about complaining. pat, you complain more than anyone else on here.

What is that guy talking about? I don't think real hardcore has even been played regualarly on MTV. And even if it was, it wouldn't make me love the genre any less.

As for the comp, I'd get it if I saw it cheap, but I already have the GB, YoT and Quicksand songs on various bootlegs, so I don't think I'd drop $12 for the rest of the songs.

punky (August 16, 2002)

Pat, the problem was, you talking about nu metal slipknot, which doesn't have anything to do with this slipknot.
And I like other, non-punk bands like At the gates (real metal), Primus, Napalm Death and so on...

What are talking about? MTV? None of these bands are MTV bands.

Anonymous (August 16, 2002)

This comp doesn't look that great. It's mostly made up of MTV's new pet, hardcore. MTV has decided that hardcore will be popular now, so bands like that, everyband, is breaking out. As for Slipknot, I don't know, and i don't care. And for that Pete guy. Stop complaining about how punks complain. Oi! If anyone wants to see a real comp check out http://www.Oi-Man.com It's my label, the track list for the comp needs to be updated though. Sewing with Nancie, The Travolta's and other have been added.

Sorry Im such an idiot... sorry I have my opinion and dont just go along with everyone else says. You people are sorry excuses for punks. I hate alll of you so fucking much is ridiculous. Try using your own brain for once. Realize that punk is not the only music worth listening to. There are people out there with other likes and dislikes. I realized yesterday at warped tour what I hate most in life. People that complain just for the sake of complaining... and you so called "punks" do a HELL of a lot of that. pieces of shit. -pat41

punky (August 16, 2002)

Pat, I'm glad that you are right winged, Bush supporter.I don't want no idiots on my side.
and yeah,GB rock.

waste_elite (August 15, 2002)

yeah, they're two different slipknots.

and gorilla biscuits is much better than 7 seconds.

Anonymous (August 14, 2002)

Pat you are an idiot. That slipknot band was on revelation back in 1990. They are NOT the same band.

Anonymous (August 14, 2002)

Hey, the reason i dont enjoy slipknot is because those things on the sides of my head have eardrums in them. And when i hear Slipknot, i want to cry like an emo boy. Besides, no one should listen to Pat41. He is stupid. A big walking bias.

Anonymous (August 14, 2002)

Please no one EVER call slipknot nu-metal again. You may not like them and they may be a popular rock band in these days of a nu-metal craze but they are NOT nu-metal. Nu-metal is POD, Sevendust, Godsmack, System of a Down, hell I guess if you really had to you could call Mudvayne nu-metal but never call slipknot nu-metal. Slipknot is hardcore. Maybe not the kind of hardcore you are used to but they are hardcore in the sense of Hatebreed, Mushroomhead (who suck horribly) and Skrape.I dont know how you could not enjoy Slipknot anyway but hey, to each his own. I also think that this song on here IS that slipknot that I talked about and not "another slipknot". even though I have not heard the song and really dont plan to. they did used to be signed to revelation to it is very possible.-pat41

not to be a complete ass, but Garrison's "New Habits for Old Friends" is actually the first track on their split EP with Hundred Reasons, which was released in October, 2001 on Simba Music.

Anonymous (August 14, 2002)

Yes, Slipknot(those goofy nu metal gods), was signed to Rev. I think they only released an EP though.

wyzo (August 13, 2002)

7 seconds complexity could fit into one gorilla biscuit crumb, their good and posi but songwriters their not. I'd start today before Im good to go.

GB are all right, but they seem to me to be way to similar to 7 Seconds (esp. in vocal delivery) which would be all right if they had better songs, but they don't.

Anonymous (August 13, 2002)

thanks for clearing that up, I was a little wigged out there

WeekendSellout (August 13, 2002)

The Slipknot on here is a completely different band than the nu metal band by the same name.

A-Season-of-Shrubs (August 13, 2002)

ANYTHING that quotes ANYTHING Tolkien wrote, or even said is just perfect.

Give it up for J.R.R. Tolkien!

waste_elite (August 13, 2002)

slipknot was on revelation? crazy.

gorilla biscuits rock my socks

Anonymous (August 13, 2002)

the fact that this cd has a slipknot song on it . ick. oh well the rest of the bands looks good.

kevtv (August 12, 2002)

this is a really great comp, and if u want to get into farside, "the monroe doctrine" is one of the greatest albums i've ever heard. it's mellow, its' hardcore, its just brilliant. highly recommended.
