Concerning the Way It Was Review

by Gregory Heaney

A compilation gathering the first three albums by Haste the Day, Concerning the Way It Was serves as a great introduction to the Christian metalcore band’s brand of spiritual heaviness. Containing their 2004 debut, Burning Bridges, as well as their 2005 follow-up When Everything Falls and 2007’s Pressure the Hinges, this three-disc set takes listeners on a tour through Haste the Day’s formative years, starting at their humble beginnings right through their days of Billboard success. The lack of bonus material makes this collection non-essential for longtime fans, but for anyone new to the band, Concerning the Way It Was is a great jumping on point.
