Bio

Tommy Concrete’s Unrelaxed is one of the highlight albums of the year for me, just a stunning piece of work from a man who really shines on this album.” — Moshville Times

“Be prepared for an adventure if you want to try this.” –Hard Rock Info

A hardened stalwart of the UK’s metal and punk scenes, Edinburgh multi-instrumentalist Tommy Concrete seeks to promote recovery and positive mental attitude through his latest EP, Trauma.  Released in May 2019, the three-track offering explores mental health issues through an unconventional blend of heavy subgenres akin to Devin Townsend and Killing Joke.  

Concrete, who has played guitar for legendary UK punks The Exploited and instrumental doom band Jackal-Headed Guard of the Dead, as well as providing vocals for infamous metallers Man of the Hour and creating harsh industrial under the pseudonym Zaceus Zinetti, began releasing metal under his own name in 2001.  Since then, he has put out six full-length albums and two EPs, with 2018’s LP Unrelaxed being named Album of the Year by Moshville Times.  Concrete says, “Mental health, addiction, and altered states have been themes that run through my entire discography. However, since Unrelaxed I have focused the tone and I aim to advocate against ableism, to promote recovery, and to destigmatize mental health issues.”

His most recent EP Trauma is unrelenting, from the frenzied chromatic riffs and blast beats of “Dipolodocus” to the edgy groove of “Trauma” and the hardcore punk ethos of “You’ve Not Lost If You’ve Endured.”  Concrete has also released a video for the title track with the help of videographer Adam Holt, an exploration of the alienation that comes with PTSD.

Concrete is now on his way to putting out his seventh LP: Unrelaxed 2, slated for early 2020.  As one critic put it, “‘Concrete’ is a great codename to describe Tommy’s career: solid, consistent, and incredibly heavy.”
