My 100 Favorite Metal Bands Pt. 22: Corrosion of Conformity

I fully recognize that I am not familiar with all of C.O.C.'s vast catalog. Specifically, I have not heard much of their hardcore/crossover early days. The earliest album I own from the band is Blind when they were more of a thrash/power metal band. And then I have a couple of their albums from their Southern metal glory days. That is the Corrosion of Conformity I am referring to here. I got into the band in the early to mid 1990's when they were releasing songs like "Clean My Wounds" and "Albatross". It was an early band that I started to listen to. I wore out my first copy of Deliverance, that's how often I played it. For being an early metal band and doing Southern metal right, which is done so rarely, C.O.C. deserves their place on this list.

  1. "Clean My Wounds" has what I would consider one of my top 10 riffs of all time, and the vocals are memorable. An excellent song.

    I'm not familiar with their early stuff either. I listened to a little bit in the Days of Napster, but I didn't like it then. I may have a different opinion if I check it out now.
