Concrete Elite – The Survival
Rebellion Records / LSM Vinyl
Lone Stare State’s terror is back… again! Only a year – or so – after the release of the band’s debut LP “Iron Rose”, Austin’s demolition crew Concrete Elite is out and about again with the release of “The Survival”, an EP featuring seven all new scorchers for Rebellion Records and LSM Vinyl!
Though some of the songs on “The Survival” have been featured on two previous releases, namely the ultra-limited split 7” with Savage Beat (lathe cut, 100 copies total) and the extremely limited “European Conquest 2018” demo-cassette (48 copies), this is the real fuckin’ deal! No demo-ish home-recordings, but that massive, all-out attack on the eardrums – just as you would expect from this Texan bulldozer!
The songs in question are “Razor Boys”, “Power Over Power”, “Got To Get Out” and “Survival” (featuring Carl Templar), while “We Want It All”, “Scavenger” and “Against All Odds” complete the tracklist of this mini-LP. Their best work to date? These guys know that I know every Concrete (Elite) song inside out and that I have been blasting these seven tracks for months already – so I can easily say it is! Ripping it up from start to finish, these boys know how to nail that barbaric, tough as nails sound to perfection – which is exactly what they have done on “The Survival”!
Start the new year with a kick in the fuckin’ face, and get this slab of wax by the undisputed heavyweight champs of Oi! Available from the 26th of January (2019), on black (150 copies, North-America – LSM Vinyl) and bone colored vinyl (350 copies, Europe – Rebellion Records) – oomph!
