E-Town Concrete
Made for War (Ironbound)

By: Mike SOS

E-Town Concrete's latest release finds the New Jersey-based quartet leaner, meaner, and more dangerous than ever. Made for War is a collection of 11 soul crushing tracks laden with hardcore intensity and metallic mayhem, as the one-two combo of "Pariah" and "Ploughshares and Swords" opt for the sledgehammer riffs and thunderous rhythm right away, eventually giving way to the funky death metal of "The Distance" and the Eminem meets Everlast rhymin' of "Do You Know What It's Like?" Anthemic and acerbic, tracks like "What Can I Do?" still prove that Anthony Martini is the noblest rap-rock warrior on the scene, poignantly juxtaposing personal pain with biting commentary, and the title track boastfully exemplifies the band's love for mixing the sounds of Newark to the metalcore beat. As E-Town's unique musical output continues to soar to uncharted territories, add Made for War in your list of discs to own.
