Corrosion of Conformity at Gramercy Theater (more by Di Lynn Ring)
Corrosion of Conformity

Corrosion of Conformity have revisited some of their punk rock roots with their new self-titled LP out NOW via Candlelight. The record opens with the alternately thrashy/groovy "Psychic Vampire" which was recently given a video treatment by Scion AV and is viewable for the first time below (tour dates are down there too).

The video is part of Scion series of videos called "Video Installment 7". An upcoming new video in the series will be by Saint Vitus(!).

Speaking of... Saint Vitus is currently streaming "Let Them Fall" from their forthcoming Lillie: F-65 LP due via Season of Mist in May. Listen below and look for the new video and keep an eye out for the LP....

Hey we're COC. We turned our backs on hardcore punk with "Blind" put out over two decades ago and never looked back until we realized Pepper was never coming back to the band cuz he enjoys playing in Down more and hardcore punk and thrash including our own catalog is popular again Now we're back as the og lineup playing hardcore punk again with some post-hardcore shit we've put out snuck in there.

Triple sellouts with Blind then their southern rock-blues metal and going back to through Animosity stuff.

COC suck unbelievably hard.

They were good until Blind when they sold out with the tall longhair singer and alternametal.

I'm not against progression but when you put out Animosity then Technocracy then two years later divorce yourself from a scene you'd be nowhere without musically and personally for over two decades like COC did you're wack.

IE you're wack to return playing hardcore punk and your old catalog you NEVER played 1990-2010.

You, COC, ditched hardcore punk over two decades ago. Fuck off.

C.O.C. changed when Mike Dean left as they were releasing Technocracy , He sang on the demos and played on the album but i think he didn't care for the cleaner metal sound/vocals that they were evolving towards. Mike and Woody released the Snake Nation lp in 1989 which was a real raw slowed down bluesy type of album with zero commercial potential so i could never figure out why he returned in 1994 for "Deliverance" since it doesn't seem he is driven by financial reasons ,, regardless i have nothing but total respect for them since they gave so much to all of us. I give them credit over D.R.I. with being the first actual crossover band .. The new Lp may not be Animosity but i am grateful that this line-up has blessed us with another great release..

"Psychic Vampire" - what an odd sounding song...from Doomish-Metal, too kinda fast HC.

"Blind" in 1991 was actually a cool record as I heard it BEFORE COC's HC stuff.

COC and DRI are arguably the first crossover bands.

COC's Eye For An Eye came out in 1983-84 around the same time the first full-length albums by Suicidal Tendencies and Agnostic Front came out. DRI's Crossover came out in '87, but so did the second full-length by ST. If you mark DRI's Crossover as their first crossover album as I do, then they are definitely not the first or second crossover band. AF's second full-length album "Cause For Alarm" and Cro-Mags' first album "The Age Of Quarrel" came out in '86. ST and AF formed in '82, same year as COC, Cro-Mags in 1981-82, DRI 1981-82.

I annoint Cro-Mags the first crossover band cuz Harley formed the band in '81 and put out unreleased demos of what would become The Age Of Quarrel demo then lp as early as '82 (since the band's first release the demo by the same name came out in 1984-85 and all those songs were written 1981-83/84.)
