The Combat Zone: S/T 12"
Debut LP from this new band out of Boston. The cover of this album (all of the artwork, actually) kind of looks like it could have come out on Punkcore in the 90s or 00s, but this isn't some watered-down street punk... Combat Zone play fast, catchy, straightforward USHC of the type that Boston seems to excel at. There's a very This Is Boston Not LA element to their sound, as this is both super fast and very hardcore but also the songs are well-written and memorable. If you can get down with early Gang Green, Jerry's Kids, or modern catchy, punk-ish hardcore like Violent Reaction you'll definitely be into this.
