Corrosion Of Conformity
Founded by three teenagers in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1982, Corrosion of Conformity began as an underground band and went on to transform heavy music, challenging boundaries and serving as what Decibel Magazine called "a crucial stylistic lynchpin in the bridge between metal and punk" that "irrevocably reshaped crossover's sonic possibilities."
Thirty years and many changes later, COC's original trio is back with a self-titled release for London-based independent Candlelight Records.
"Corrosion of Conformity isn't a comeback album or an example of diminishing returns," Invisible Oranges observed. "It's a testament to immense talent and the elusive endowment of staying power."
In the summer of 2010, COC's founding members—bassist/vocalist Mike Dean, drummer/vocalist Reed Mullin and guitarist Woody Weatherman—gathered at Weatherman's farm in Virginia to get to work again after a five-year hiatus. With longtime vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan busy working with metal supergroup Down back home in New Orleans, COC began playing together as a three-piece for the first time since the mid-1980s.
That's the same lineup behind 1985's Animosity, widely considered a crossover classic. While the trio re-visited songs from that album and 1987's Technocracy, this was not just an exercise in nostalgia, and they soon began writing new material.
The original members of COC are excited to be working together again.
"Mike, Woody and I essentially learned how to play music together and cultivated our own style, sound, and unspoken language," said Mullin. "Re-bonding with them musically has been the greatest thing that's ever happened to me."
