Corrosion Of Conformity - Then & Now

If you are on the east or here in North Carolina, there is one band in particular that carved out quite the name for themselves in two phases of their career. Corrosion Of Conformity started here in Raleigh and were the local punk hero's. After a shift in the lineup a cleaner and less thrashy punk sound was honed in on and they went straight for big arenas. This second wave of the band is where they were brought to the masses and went on to become a huge act taking the stage with everyone from Metallica to Motorhead to countless others. Personally I dig both sounds as it was just the music they played at that time. Things grow and change, so why shouldn't bands. Whats killer is that C.O.C. has some upcoming shows here in the Carolina's playing their "Technocracy" material along with the new project band Righteous Fool fronted by Mike Dean. If you get the chance get out there and see the shows, gonna be a damn good night.
