The 21st century version of Madball strays only a little on Hold It Down, the New York hardcore outfit's first release for Epitaph Records. In the many years since their inception, the band's sound managed to evolve a bit, and careful scrutiny of each disc leading to this 2000 offering will reveal increasingly modern aggro and even hip-hop influences. The caustic vocal approach of Freddy Cricien remained constant and threatening, especially with his updated urban inflections, and of course the music remained brutal, if just a little slower.

Hold It Down, the band’s lone Epitaph release, came out way back in 2000. And while Madball has offered us a slew of music since then, Hold It Down remains one of the band’s strongest full-lengths. The tone and character of the record was a change-up from Madball’s previous releases on Roadrunner, and even a bit of a return to the stylings on Ball of Destruction. The album moves at much more frantic pace, set forth with the opening track Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop. The song, itself an homage to a treacherous NY lifestyle, chugs along with equal parts of old-school horse-hopping riffs and fast-paced choruses, only to segue directly into the title track Hold It Down. That track opens with a signature Hoya Roc bass line and stalks through with signature Madball ferocity. Hold It Down is very much the bridge song between former Madball releases and Hold It Down as a record.
