There once was a time when compilation CD’s meant something other than cheap, promotional throwaways lining the parking lots of the Warped Tour. A time when like-minded artists and record labels would collaborate simply as a means to celebrate the diversity of their collective talents and share their sounds with one another’s listeners as an organic way of getting their music heard.
With the “It Came From The Hills” compilation series, Magic Bullet Records and friends from around the world are attempting to recapture the simplicity and purity of yesteryear, long before MySpace, aesthetic-based Cyclops Rock, and whoring yourself out in hopes of impressing 15 year olds.
Featured on volume one are:
• STEPHEN BRODSKY (of CAVE IN)
• PAUL MICHEL
• EARTHEN SEA (ex BLACK EYES)
• LIGHT YOURSELF ON FIRE (ex REVERSAL OF MAN)
• AUGHRA (mem. of FORENSICS, ex CORN ON MACABRE)
• NITRO TOKYO (mem. of DARKEST HOUR)
• JINXED AT TWELVE
• THIS WILL DESTROY YOU
