C.O.C. is back,
This review is from: Corrosion Of Conformity/Deluxe (Audio CD)
It's hard to believe that it's been seven years since "In the Arms of God", the last studio album from Corrosion of Conformity was released. In that time, a lot has happened, most notably with C.O.C. singer/guitarist Pepper Keenan spending a majority of his time with Down, and C.O.C. seemed to be indefinitely put on the back-burner. Now, here we are in 2012, and not only has C.O.C. returned with this new self-titled album, but they've returned boasting their classic lineup from the "Animosity" days. Standout tracks, including "The Doom", "Your Tomorrow", and "Psychic Vampire" are sludgy, surprisingly breathtaking tracks that any lover of C.O.C.'s pre-Pepper days will enjoy, even if vocalist Mike Dean doesn't have that same growl he had way back when. All that being said though, this self-titled release from Corrosion of Conformity is a wonderful throwback to a bygone era, and if they can manage to keep pumping out solid music like this, it will make us all miss Pepper a little less and less as time goes on.
