Soundtrack To The Revolution compilation 7"

Any compilation which features both Converge and Chokehold is worth getting in my book. This one is quite possibly the first one which features both bands, the other bands on here being Knockdown and Bound (the one from Massachusetts). It was released on Onlook Records in 1994. Onlook Records was a label done by Aaron Dalbec, who at that time also played in both Converge and Knockdown, but is also known for doing time in Bane. The 7" was limited to 500 copies total, mine's numbered 323/500, and is on black, but there are also copies on orange/yellow.

The best track on here is Chokehold's anti-smoking anthem 'Kill Me' which also happens to be the first track. Gotta love Chokehold! Knockdown do a fairly decent track but it's the weakest one on here. The band featured Aaron Dalbec on guitar as mentioned above and Tre McCarthy of Deathwish Inc fame on bass. Converge's 'Sky' is great if you're into old Converge (I am), it would later be featured on their 'Caring & Killing' CD which compiles a bunch of their older material. Finally Bound delivers a great track, making this an overall pretty damn good compilation. Bound would eventually turn into Hatchetface, but not before doing a 7", which I'm still searching for. Which reminds me that I should post some Bound (NJ) material at some point, they were also pretty damn good. Anyways... cool compilation, enjoy!

I'm looking for that Bound 7 inch too, in a big way. If you locate it, please make us aware.
