Review Summary: A hidden, forgotten hardcore gem.

4 of 4 thought this review was well written

Compromise is a band you may have heard of if you are a fan of Misery Signals and 7 Angels 7 Plagues.

Jesse Zaraska - vocals.
Jordan Whodehouse(Deceased) - Guitars
Daniel Langlois(Deceased) - Unknown
Braden Sustrik - Bass Guitar
Ryan Kittlitz - Unknown

This is the band that had a very tragic ending, if you know the song "The Year Summer Ended In June" then you know what im talking about. A drunk driver hit there van and killed two of the members and friends of Jesse and Misery Signals.
"Two members of Edmonton-based hardcore band Compromise were tragically killed this past Thursday in a horrific automobile accident on Interstate 20 near Heflin, Alabama. Jordan Wodehouse, 19, and Daniel Langlois, 20, were killed, and two other bandmates badly injured after a Pathfinder rear-ended the band's 1985 Ford van at 2 a.m. on June 13th. Singer Jesse Zaraska, 23, bass player Braden Sustrik, 19, and Ryan Kittlitz, 20, all sustained injuries in the crash. The band was on tour at the time, amidst a few shows with 7 Angels 7 Plagues. There is talk of a benefit show being arranged to help offset funeral costs. Sad stuff." Truly sad, this band actually had something going on. Now of course i guess if this didnt happen then Misery Signals wouldn't be the same, but that doesn't matter, cause that doesn't make up for the fact that two people lost there lives.

The sound is very similar from the melodic drop d riffs, the heavy drums of 7a7p to the passionate screaming from Jesse of Misery Signals. Though this EP almost lies toward a screamo sound. Its not as metal as 7a7p. More chords riffs and melodic passages and octaves. A lot more dual-guitar intertwining is found here. Even some cleans can be found here. But they definitely aren't the best. The production doesn't weaken the music it self but it does weaken Jesse vocals since there are parts where he talks and it doesn't sound that good like on Of Malice And The Magnum Heart, it sounds like there is an effect on the vocals when he talks.

For the most part this will be a treat for Misery Signals and 7a7p fans. If you ever wanted to hear more 7a7p material this is as close as you may get. (Even though this is old) This is an interesting release that you may not want to pass up listening to.

I just neg'd your review for very good reasons:

1. This is supposed to be a review not a band bio. That's what the band bio page is for.

2. Using descriptions like "Its not as metal as 7a7p" is foolish because you can't expect people to know who they are. Your reviews are supposed to appeal to the mass.

3. You should know better by now, this isn't your first review. Learn how to expand your ideas. Saying there isn't much to say about this is a cop-out.

"i know. deal with it."

I did that's why you received a neg. Can you tell me something to do that I haven't already?

"Intellectual, why the hell do you even come on here if all you do is bitch and complain; crawl back into your lonely, unlit cave"

Actually not true I completed TBliss on his review and I complimented a user on his name which I really like. Know the facts before pretending like your a god who know's everything.
