Those of you who discovered COC in 1991 or later might be surprised to find that they could actually be considered sellouts by some who were listening to them as early as 1983. COC seemed to have trouble keeping a solid vocalist until they found Pepper. (Actually, I think Pepper found them.) The first album, Eye For An Eye (1984), which was really more hardcore punk than metal, featured a vocalist named Eric. He left the band very soon after that album was released. On album #2, Animosity (1985), bassist Mike took care most of the vocal duties, drummer Reed singing lead on two songs. For the record, I believe Animosity was COC's best work by FAR. Intensely brutal and severe. Mike and Reed really should have maintained their positions as instrumentalists AND vocalists. Their voices, gutteral hissing growls etc. were perfectly suited for their style of down & dirty no-nonsense speedmetal. Technocracy was their 3rd record, a 5 song EP. 4 songs, really. The last track was a complete throw-away. During this era, they enlisted Simon Bob Sinister to fill in as vocalist. Simon Bob had just broken up his own Bible Belt based band (Ugly Americans) and was apparently in need of a job. Big mistake on COC's part, taking him up on it. I cannot think of a less powerful vocalist in the speed metal scene. His voice is almost completely ineffectual, devoid of any and all agression, or any other emotion for that matter. He just breathes the lyrics out as hard as he can, which isn't very hard. He practically whines. Still, it's a cut above the "Please please PLEASE, we WANT to sell out!" stylings of Jim Morrison/whatever-wannabe Karl Agel on Blind. Thank God he only lasted one record as well. And thank Pepper for taking the dead shell of a spent once-great group and breathing new life into them.Read more ›

You have it backwards, sonny boy. Those of us who got into COC before Blind and Deliverance were fans of a hardcore band who had integrity. Scrubs like you who only heard of them after they were on MTV's Headgiver's Ball were taken in by a bunch of washed up old sell outs. It's a good thing your stupid friend threw away Technocracy, he didn't deserve to own it in the first place. Now go back to your generic nu-metal.

FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT INTO C.O.C. BEFORE THIS RELEASE, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. BUT IF YOUR FROM THESE TIMES LIKE I WAS IN '87', OR ARE INTO THE LIKES OF D.R.I, HIRAX, EXCEL, VOIVOD, FINAL CONFLICT, AGNOSTIC FRONT, THIS IS FOR YOU. I ONLY WISH THAT THEY WOULD HAVE RELEASED A WHOLE ALBUM OF THIS VERSION OF C.O.C.

I bought this after buying "Blind", which is fabulous. This EP is good old-fashioned thrash, and is a lot different from Blind, but still pretty good. Don't be fooled though, there are only 5 unique songs, so think before you plunk down too much for this.

I loved this album when I was in highschool & recently found my wasted cassette that I decided to replace with a download... Well I have to say that this is one of my favorite hardcore albums from the decade. They have great lyrics where they discuss corporate corruption etc, no stupid satanic lyrics, just "this stuff is wrong!" lyrics with incredible hardcore backing. They remind me of the hardcore bands you'd see in a mini-warehouse in the late 80s or early 90s when you could still find hardcore bands... Before they all turned metal aka C.O.C. & Suicidal Tendencies.

Anyway I love this album, the recording is a little muddy, but clears up nicely when you push the speakers...
