Countervail was and still is one of those bands i can never just get out of my head the pure energy and compassion felt in the "Most abused Word" release on new age records is just pure bliss, i had the opportunity to see them play there reunion show at the first Coming of Age fest put on by new age and i was blown away, listen to the song "Arrow and Teather" ...just amazing, this is an article done by Skratch Magazine on a brief history of the band. This download will include all releases minus the limited double 7" they did on new age because i dont have anything to rip my records. Enjoy. Countervail started slowly in the late months of 1996 and had already done a full U.S. tour in the summer of 1997 with no releases to rely on. Countervail found great satisfaction in touring and sharing their deeply personal music with people all over the U.S. and Canada. They played over 100 shows in 1999, including a full U.S. and Canada tour, three West Coast tours, and a tour of Hawaii. Using the momentum from their debut EP (Words of War Records) and their second EP "An Empty Hand For A Heart" (Phyte Records), Countervail's strength and popularity as a band continue to grow. Their first full length CD, "The Most Abused Word,"(New Age Records 2000) was recorded with Eric Stenman (Will Haven, Far, Deftones, Training for Utopia) behind the controls. Countervail go beyond labels of hardcore, metal or emo having shared the stage with bands like Converge and Bane. "Countervail uses the metal overtones of Will Haven and Converge with brutally emotional music and vocals that grabs you by the balls."-Skratch Magazine
