For those who aren't familiar with Straight & Alert Records, it's a one man run label from France and has been steadily putting out records from bands both from across the sea to bands right here state side.
They have a pretty solid back catalog, with some of my personal favorite releases from bands like Blindsided USA, Raw Justice, Mindforce, Drug Control, etc. With that list I'm not surprised that much, but just as stoked, that S&A will be releasing a 7" of the demo from NYHC band Combust.
Combust is made up of dudes from Impact and Vice (RIP), both pretty young but well liked bands from the same area. But unlike both bands, Combust goes for more of an older more polished, yet still have that rough NYCHC feel of bands like Outburst and Killing Time. They even cover Breakdown's Dissed and Dismissed for the ending track. This Demo EP is a great listen from start to finish and hopefully it's an indication of what the band has to offer for the future.
