The War For Infinity
Silver Age Records & Marketless Music
Release Date: October 7, 2010

Eugene Ahn, comic book fan and podcast host, has created a hip-hop alter ego named Adam WarRock. On WarRock’s debut album, The War For Infinity, listeners are treated to an “event” comic book story in musical form.

On the first track, “I Am Him,” we are learn the origin story of Adam WarRock. Adam WarRock created a perfect society with his mic, but is shunned by the very people that he was seeking to save. He creates a gauntlet that stores his power and ascends into the clouds and sleeps until he is needed again. That day inevitably arrives, and Adam WarRock awakes again.

WarRock’s saga continues throughout the course of the album, and eventually he meets Demonos on the track “Battle (Intro)”. Demonos and WarRock meet in an arena, complete with cheesy announcer. WarRock also informs Demonos of his power with lines like “Ya’ll must be crazy, thinking you can mess with Adam, man/Thinking I’m a goody two shoes like my name was Adam Ant.” The lyrical and heroic battle continues over the course of the album, especially on the track “Heroes Requiem,” where Demonos vanquishes several well-known super heroes. WarRock and Demonos have their final showdown on the song “Battle (Finale)” and it is an epic contest.

WarRock has crafted a brilliant album that is an audio graphic novel detailing the awesome story of Adam WarRock, a superhero in the classic mold, who fights against incredible odds and is committed to protecting the world from evil.

The War for Infinity is also a perfect synthesis of hip-hop and comics, two worlds that have already been intertwined. Comic artist have been drawing hip-hop album covers for years now, and several rappers have adopted the alter egos of superheroes. Ghostface Killah’s usage of Tony Stark as an alias nearly resulted in a cameo in the first Iron Man movie. The War For Infinity merges the best qualities of hip-hop and the superhero genre. The album has the feel of a well-executed superhero saga. My only disappointment is that there was not an actual comic that I could read along to while listening to this album.

The War For Infinity is Adam WarRock’s heroic poetry combined with the excellent production of Ruckus Roboticus. This is the next evolution of the superhero concept album, and I look forward to hearing more of Adam WarRock’s fantastic adventures.

The War For Infinity is available on Amazon, itunes, and at adamwarrock.bandcamp.com.
