There's no debate about it: Audible Mainframe has taken its place as one of hip hop's most profound outfits. There are other groups that posture rap tactics over live musicianship, but Audible is the only one perched on the ridge where rhyme and rock climax.

At the recent Mass Industry Committee Awards - Boston's first hip-hop award show - the seven man crew pocketed first prize for Best Live Group, while Audible's front man Exposition snatched the trophy for Best Underground Artist. They add these awards to the ever growing list of accolades coming their way including winning 107.3 WAAF's 2003 Beantown Meltdown, taking the trophy and prize money away from 35 of Boston's best rock bands and becoming the first hip-hop group ever to take the title.

This second release, an 8-track EP showcases more of a live feel, and a harder edge. Featuring two live tracks, in addition to 6 fresh studio cuts, War To Be One picks up where Framework left off, taking Audible's sound to the next level.
