After first glance, I'll say that Blood and Water and The Letter You are both great--I didn't notice any other names besides My Arcadia. I'm gonna download this and listen to the rest of the bands soon

I remember reading about this and everyone saying it would never get done even though it was a cool idea. It's pretty awesome that he actually made this whole thing.

it only took about 8 months, but yeah, it's finally out there into the world now!!! i am sooo excited to finally have this released, but i'm even more excited that i was actually able to pull it off!

there are sooo many good bands on this. they're all well worth a listen. out of the hundreds of submissions that i got, i made sure to pick the most ear-pleasing bands of multiple genres. this compilation has everything!

i really hope that these bands get new fans out of this, make new friends, and i hope that people will discover a band that they didn't know about that's from their area so they can go check them out!

thanks so much to all the bands that participated in this (if you sent me a song and i didn't use you, i sincerely apologize! i eventually had to start turning people down because it got too full.)

thanks to Alex DiVincenzo for supporting this from the beginning and promoting it on AP.net!

i've been toying around with the idea of what theme to do for my next compilation. i've thought about doing a European one next. Maybe not 4 discs worth, but we'll see! haha

Great job man!! So happy to see this out!

If you guys have a chance, my band is the last track in the Mountain Time Zone. It's "Subject One" by Monroe Monroe.

To be honest, we've put out some much better tracks since this, and one of the best ways to keep up with us and find more links is in our Self Promotion thread. Check it out here! http://absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=1959722

I'm good friends with My Body Sings Electric on the Mountain zone as well, so do check them out! I've never seen any of the dudes from MBSE on this site before. Show your face Brandon...

when the 200 free Bandcamp downloads run out (which will be soon, at the rate this is going), i have Mediafire links posted on there too, with unlimited downloads. so don't pay anything for it. you don't need to.
