There are some elements on this disc that some might mistake for being 'nu-metal', but this CD predates nu-metal by almost a decade. The bonus tracks are all a nice addition. I particularly like the down home, foot stompin', front porch blues of "Jim Bean.

Seven Days 9. My Grain Deliverance Shake Like You Shelter With it they have made a complete transition from a hardcore punk band to a full-fledged Black Sabbath -inspired heavy metal band. The songs are built around sludgy guitar riffs and massive power chords. There is no doubt in my mind that C. This is certainly a far cry from the frenzied punk the band use to play.
I suppose this can be attributed to growth, or just a band wanting to do something different. Email or Username. Password Forgot login? Discover Featured Music Videos People. Sign up Sign in. All rights reserved. Corrosion of Conformity does not have any songs. Info Connections Comments Shares.

He doesn't carry a particularly impressive range, reminding me a little bit of James Hetfield or maybe Phil Anselmo, as someone else already mentioned.
Still, his voice is perfectly at home in the music and he always carries himself well. The instances of pure Southern influenced rock are evident in songs like "Dance of the Dead," which is one of the better songs to be found. The thrashier influences come into play on "White Noise" and "Damned for all Time," the latter of which is pretty damn aggressive.
During this time of toning down aggression in alot of thrash bands, its good to hear material like this. There is also a hint of post-thrash going on in "Great Purification" and it works considerably well given the stagnated tendencies of the groove metal genre.
The song "Buried" is one of my favorites, and throws in some doom metal influences on top of some harder rocking tendencies. Its also one of the heaviest songs here alongside "Damned for all Time," albeit at a slower tempo.
Even at their heaviest, this album still takes time to weave in some catchier, more user friendly moments. This is still a pretty accessible album, as is alot of crossover metal. It remains my favorite C. The only album that comes close would be "Wiseblood" but I'd argue this album is still better based on sheer quality music and riffage. Not only is this album superior to other C.
I rank "Blind" very highly and is one of the better albums of the early 's here in America. As far as everyone was concerned thrash metal was still riding it pretty swell and had not yet experienced the complete disintegration of a wonderful genre that would be felt within the next 2 to 3 years. Outside the big four who were at that time still putting out material that still mattered, there really didn't seem to be anyone outside of those 4 that could match the progression. Or was there??? Corrosion of Conformity had actually kind of ridden along side of the big 4 safely by going from total hardcore punk to total crossover thrash where they could easily make social commentary and not be stuck with the fallout of the classic Hardcore Punk years of '' So they were still able to essentially use their socio-political punk lyrics but also be able to survive by getting kudos from the Metal genre.
Not to mention they had an advantage to themselves; they were southern and they even rented out their own club in Raleigh, NC to bring in other well-known acts from various scenes Black Flag, Saint Vitus, Suicidal Tendencies, Bad Brains, etc. Also they got signed to Columbia shortly before this album which was probably due to word-of-mouth and their cult following.
But for stand-out performance is none other than the new singer Karl Agell. Overall a round of applause for these southern boys. The song here have something that lacked in the past COC releases: variety. And does it have riffs. Thrash metal with hardcore back-up gang vocals and very political lyrics.
I double dare you to not want to circle-pit to this. The next song is just fun. They are switching tempos and styles it will give you dizzy spells. A hard-hitting pounding song about the electoral process in the U. It opens with a Megadeth-ish buzz-saw groovy riff that tackles the touchy subject of black racism in the south.
For most of the album…. I know when I first decided to sit down and give them a chance a few years back, it was hard to decided where to start. KNAC Tribute.
