4.0 out of 5 stars "Baptize with Gasoline!!!" March 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
4.5 stars. Mix Black Sabbath with Motorhead, throw in a dash of Jimi Hendrix attitude and riffage, play at high volume for about an hour, and what you have is "Wiseblood" by C.O.C. This is the album that I return to the most. While the previous album, "Deliverance," has many great songs, it also has a modicum of filler material. On "Wiseblood" there is no filler, whatsoever. Their follow-up to this, "America's Volume Dealer," has no filler, but is also radio-ready, and grows tired after a few spins. But "Wiseblood" does not grow old. In fact, the more times I hear it, the more I appreciate the attempt at updating their influences with mid-90s studio production value. Speaking of the Jimi Hendrix vibe on this album, every once in a while Pepper Keenan ends a lyric with a soft "yeah." Like on the song "Redemption City": "So we sing this simple sooooooong! (yeah)" This band has freely admitted to using Black Sabbath as a template for their style, but every once in a while a Motorhead influence comes through. Just check out the riffs and no-nonsense attitude on the song "Wishbone(some tomorrow)." Anyway, this is the album I listen to the most, with "Deliverance" running a distant, but respectable second. "America's Volume Dealer" is good for a few spins or more if you like Heavy Metal with Pop Metal gloss, but "Wiseblood" is their best. Later.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Would you be my queen?" August 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Indeed one of the most underrated and unrecognized bands I can think of, Corrosion of Conformity was doing the whole alt/metal thing before most people even heard of it. I had completely fallen in love with C.O.C.'s previous album, 1994's "Deliverance", and I thought then that that album couldn't be topped. Well, I was wrong. Where as "Deliverance" had a laid back emotional feel to it, "Wiseblood" is filled with unrelenting southern blues inspired rock with a dash of heaviness. Pepper Keenan really shines on "Wiseblood", songwriting and vocally speaking, andit's a shame that his talents, and the rest of C.O.C.'s, go unrecognized. "King of the Rotten" starts off the album, and has quickly become one of my all time favorite songs, followed by "Long Whip/Big America" which showcases drummer Reed Mullin's talents. The title track, "Born Again For the Last Time", "The Door", and "Fuel" are excellent tracks, but "Man or Ash" is a standout track that combines C.O.C.'s style with a more darker, sinister tone (is that James Hetfield I hear singing as well or am I hallucinating?). All in all, if you've never listened to C.O.C. before, but you like bands like Down (Pepper's other band with Pantera's Phil Anselmo), Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, or Pantera, then you'll dig C.O.C., and to say that "Wiseblood" and "Deliverance" are must haves is an understatement.

5.0 out of 5 stars WiseCHOICE October 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
C.O.C. have been around for a long time and have undergone many changes. While originally a hardcore punk band, they have always had an underlying sense of melody to go with the crunch. The addition of Pepper Keenan (formerly of Graveyard Rodeo) really signalled a turning point in the bands evolution that has reached a zenith with "Wiseblood." This album is almost perfect, with crunching guitars, heartfelt lyrics, and a rhythmic punch rivalled by few in today's tame rock market. They sound like a cross between Sabbath and Skynyrd, with a little attitude thrown in on top. All the tracks are good, but "king of the Rotten," "Long Whip" and the title track are amazing rockers. In addition, this is the only album where James Hetfield makes a non-Metallica appearance, singing on "Man or ash." With a new CD coming out next week (10/17/00), C.O.C. undoubtedly one of the best (if not most popular) hard-rock-heavy metal, stoner rock, thrash bands around. Check them out immediately if you lay any claim to being a rock music fan

5.0 out of 5 stars Drowning in Corrosion February 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I had a few of this bands older albums, back when they were more full fledged punk. It wasnt until Deliverance that they began to shine, mainly due to the arrival of new singer/writer Pepper Keenan. As good as Deliverance is, it had its weak moments. I was very intrigued to learn COC was releasing a new cd, and I prayed that they would grow on the greatness they had began to show before. This cd is everything I hoped for. First off, this cd is more akin to Metallica and Sabbath, so the hardcore fans might want to consider leavin this one be. However, open minded fans of music will love this album. It kicks off with a helluva boot, King of the Rotten, featuring cool vox, lyrics and an amazing riff. We get treated to more of the like as we journey, such as Long Whip, Wiseblood, Drowning in a Daydream and Man or Ash. Its nice to see theres a band doing solos at a level where it doesnt become annoying (Slayer?). The musicianship is very good, and very tightly played, featuring some great drumming and bass. If you love this cd, I reccomend the Down album NOLA as well as Pantera and Black Sabbath. This one hardly leaves the changer these days, Its a MUST HAVE!

This band is only surpassed by Pepper Keenans other band Down. Wiseblood is a true offering and solid offering of what C.O.C. is.
