“Roxx Records is proud to announce the release of In Your Face by New Mexico heavy metal band Combat Faith. New Mexico is a state known more for salsa music and green chili than for heavy metal. However, New Mexico had a thriving heavy metal scene in the 1980s and into the 1990s. More specifically, there were many Christian metal bands that came out of the scene including Cross, Rapture, Conviction, Angelic Force, The Moshketeers, Extraction, Ultimatum and Combat Faith. Formed in 1986, Combat Faith was formed by guitarist Ric Buteau and vocalist Albert Baca with drummer Alan Tuma joining the ranks shortly after. Combat Faith formed with a passion to play heavy metal and to share their faith. The band played locally as much as they could, including opening for national acts like Whitecross, Vengeance Rising, X-Sinner, The Crucified and many others. In 1989, the band recorded their first demo and continued to fill halls around New Mexico with their powerhouse sound. The band finally began recording their first full-length, 10 track album in 1989 but it was never officially released. Only 4 tracks were released on cassette to shop to labels. Unfortunately, over the decades, some of those recordings were lost but 6 tracks from those sessions were retrieved for this CD. Roxx Records has also added the 1989 4 track demo to this CD to make a 10 track album titled In Your Face.” -Roxx Records
