It All Comes Down to This is the first full-length album from the hardcore band Bane and deals with loss and unity within the hardcore scene.

The album artwork tackled the subject of loss by reproducing photographs taken by journalists who had died in the Vietnam and Indochina wars. The photos have been called both graphically poignant and emotionally and visually thought-provoking. [1] [2]

To reinforce this imagery, the band placed mellow musical interludes at certain parts of the album – tracks 3 and 10 – to cause of a sudden mood of reflection before and after the savagery of the hardcore songs which dominate this recording.

The record release show for this album coincided with the Back to School Jam 3 on October 30th, 1999 in Worcester, Massachusetts at the Palladium. The lineup for the show included Right Brigade, Dillinger Escape Plan, Boy Sets Fire, Bane, and Converge. Patrons attending this show were also able to purchase copies of Saves the Day's just released album Through Being Cool.

"Can We Start Again" was covered in 2013 by the electronicore band I See Stars.
