Corrosion of Conformity-Heavy American Metal

DSC_0172Corrosion of Conformity has been bringing the heavy doomy riffs for quite some time straight from Raleigh, North Carolina and with their talent and presence on stage they mesmerized fans at the Fox Theater on May 28th, 2016. A line up of all American metal is what one can ask for on Memorial Day weekend, that is exactly what metal heads received in Pomona, CA. with acts like Lamb of God, Clutch and COC. The stage was hot and the band heavy as metal should be, their groovy metal riffs elicited the deepest corners of metal heads minds. Pepper Keenan guitarist and front man sure has the ability to capture fans attention and make them head bang with Corrosion’s heavy tunes. The set was dark and they played some tunes never heard before of course, with their new full-length cd coming out soon they needed to test those song and they were great. However, that list was not available but will definitely get those title tracks to you as soon as we get the info. Non-the-less COC just puts a great show, with Woodroe Weatherman on guitar joining Pepper during those killer solos and Mike Dean beating that bass, the band was just brilliant. If you have yet to hear COC make sure you get their latest album IX as it will define your view of this hardcore punk influenced heavy metal. As a fan you can definitely see the connection between all band members and their musicianship is displayed masterfully on stage with their killer tunes like “Bottom Feeder” and “Paranoid Opioid”.DSC_0076

One can say this juggernaut resembles Black Sabbath but their influence of punk is far from that of Sabbath, their sound has been mimicked before with no avail as the skills by drummer Reed Mullin is classic and heavy the entire ensemble created music that will move you entire body not just your neck. If you are looking for a metal fix this is definitely the band you want to see on a three day weekend as you will surely need the rest of the days to recuperate from the punishment given by Corrosion of Conformity. The Fox Theater will need to be re-enforced after this killer show, with those Orange Amplifiers exploding melodic heavy metal walls must have cracked opened. The tour is continuing and Corrosion Of Conformity will remorselessly play their American Heavy Metal. Check the listing below to get a glimpse of the rest of their tour. Get your tickets now.
