Concrete Monster is an alternative hard rock band out of midwest Illinois that officially formed in January of 2018. They write and play dynamic guitar and bass driven music with heavy beats and commanding vocals which deliver textured lyrics that speak to the heart and mind.

“We have a unique team. A combination of pure young ambition- and a focus that comes from experience.”

Rewind (the short story)… Adam Oliver started recording local singer Cordell Bentzinger in the fall of 2016, after contracting him to give lessons at Oliver’s music store. The two started writing and completed a series of songs. Jim Mueller joined the two in the winter and practice and pre-production started for laying the tracks that would lead to the Foundation EP.
