I'm no sound scientist, but wouldn't just some ordinary foam of the
type people put in their music studios help? It sounds like you are
having trouble with unwanted and weird reverberations, which the foam
should lesson. Having performed music in such spaces (concrete and
metal), I've got a pretty good idea of the kind of acoustic nightmare
you are probably facing...
