With its first self-titled release on Words of War Records in 1997, Southern California's Countervail has worked diligently to build its fan base through numerous releases and touring. In 1998, the band would release a four-song CDEP, "An Empty Hand For An Empty Heart," on Phyte Records (Good Clean Fun, Champion), with a sound comparable to Sons of Abraham and Morning Again. By 1999, Countervail would move onto the well-known straightedge label, New Age Records (Trial, Unbroken), and release a limited press four-song 7". The unit's debut full-length for New Age, "The Most Abused Word" (1999), would exhibit Countervail's musical growth, steering away from the traditional metalcore by adding somewhat melodic, emo, and screamo elements, but still retaining its hardcore foundation. Following its stint with New Age, Countervail would introduce its updated line-up on the Status Recordings (owned by the band's then drummer, Seth Brown) roster, and release its "In The Event Of An Unscheduled Landing" CDEP in 2000. Keeping its metalcore heaviness, the band continues to build upon its musical foundation with rock, melody, and grooves. read less
