That being said; realistically it is an album that you need to provide a certain level of context for before approaching in a critical way as the particulars of the album's line up and musical style are of interest to existing fans and therefore it is difficult to describe the album without first acknowledging that.
So; on the previous four Corrosion Of Conformity albums (which a large portion of their fanbase know them best for) most of the vocals and a large part of musical direction came from the Southern Rock influenced Singer/Guitarist Pepper Keenan, who is not present on this album because he is concentrating on the Phil Anselmo fronted super group Down.
In Pepper's absence, the vocals on this album are performed by founding member Mike Dean, who has been on every Corrosion Of Conformity album except for 1991's Blind. Dean sometimes appears purely as a bassist and sometimes also handles the vocal duties.
In addition to Mike Dean once again taking over the lead vocal position, Pepper's guitar slot is left unfilled and the band play as a three piece.Read more ›
After a few listens I was surprised how much of the punk fury had returned, not least of all in the more-chaotic, thrashier solos. Tracks like Leeches, Rat City and, to some extent, The Moneychangers and What you Despise is what you've Become are confrontational, punky numbers. However, this is probably Sourthern-styled Sabbathy metal more than anything else. With these influences put together, the result is an album that is uniquely Corrosion of Conformity and unique within their discography. It's great, the songs are fairly immediate (although the vocals take a bit of getting used to) but they also develop and improve. After repeated listens, there is no doubt that this is an interesting albums as well as one that captures your attention. Almost all the songs have a combination of the first three bands mentioned but in a totally different style to Animosity, the exceptions being the subdued, slightly-trippy instrumental El Lamento de las Cabras and the grungier Weaving Spiders Come not Here.Read more ›
So here we have founding members Reed Mullin, Mike Dean and Woody Weatherman abusing their instruments under the C.O.C banner for your listening pleasure. This line-up toured playing material from the 1980s and I believe that this self-titled album is the bastard offspring of that particular road trip. And it's true what other reviewers have said - that this is sort of an amalgamation of their early 'punk' sound and the stoner rock / groove metal that they would eventually become known for. Don't worry if you are a fan of the later stuff, though, as I would say that the mix is about 70/30 in favour of the newer style. My biggest fear was the vocals (Mike Dean replacing Pepper here on throat-shredding duties) but, although they take a bit of getting used to, they quickly grow on you much as the album itself does (I don't know what it is about C.O.C. but all the different singers seem to do passable impersonations of each other).Read more ›
