WASTED: Suppress & Restrain: CD

I dug up that this is a re-issue of their first LP that went out of print quickly. Most copies were sold within Finland and this is co-released by their original label, Combat Rock Industry, and Boss Tuneage. I read that they have been touring a lot in Europe and gaining in popularity. The songs are tight, melodic and mid-paced. This album can be matched up against any of your favorite oi and early UK punk bands. The production is solid but maintains that raw edge. I’ve also read about them being compared to early period Rancid. I don’t hear it. But who am I to judge? It’s only my opinion. This is another great release for us outside of Finland or Europe who have never heard of this band before.
