Album Review

With guitarist Pepper Keenan now at the helm as lead singer and principal songwriter, COC abandoned most of the punk influences of their crossover past and turned into a full-fledged Sabbath-inspired metal band with 1994's Deliverance. Most of the songs on the album are built on monolithic power chords which range from ferocious speed on "Heaven's Not Overflowing" and "Senor Limpio" to slower, groovier numbers such as "Broken Man" and leadoff single "Albatross." Second single "Clean My Wounds" also struck gold at rock radio with its staccato riffing, and "Seven Days" adds eerie guitar melodies to the mix. On the downside, the plodding title track (featuring vocals from returning founding bassist Mike Dean) gets a little tedious around the sixth minute, and a number of faceless guitar instrumentals are interspersed through the album, really breaking up its rhythm.

Customer Reviews

Album cover says it all...

The speaker on the album cover is exactly what mine look like after playing this one...It smokes from start to finish...Pepper singing was the missing piece all along for this band...The riffs are gargantuan and weld themselves to your brain...As "Sabbathy" as it is at times, its a very nimble album...Its not overly weighty or heavy...There is also a very noticeable Southern Rock/Lynyrd Skynyrd vibe to this album...Its very apparent on songs like Albatross and Seven Days... The production/engineering of the album is perfect...It knocks the tops off the high end, which re-inforces the albums mood and intensity...The guitars sound perfect...Its a pefect combination of great lyrics, voclas, riffs, and weed... The real hidden gem is Shelter...Never has a steel guitar been used so effectively and hauntingly...


I love CoC, but I really wish they'd lay off the anti-Christian stuff.


I have no clue what Grant was talking about, they have a great sound, they have a very slight country hard rock sound, more country sound in others, (because of frequent changes with in the band) they have a rarely used sound, the best songs on here are,Heaven's Not Overflowing , Albatross, Clean My Wounds, Senr Limpio, 7 Days, #2121313, My Grain, Deliverance(My personal favorite). just buy a song or an album, they are a great band.


Formed: 1983 in Raleigh, NC

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

One of the first punk-metal fusion bands, Corrosion of Conformity were formed in North Carolina by guitarist Woody Weatherman during the early '80s. In their early years, C.O.C. became known for their aggressive sound, intelligent political lyrics, and willingness to break away from both hardcore and metal conventions. In the '90s, their shift to a more stripped-down, deliberate sound -- sort of Black Sabbath filtered through the Deep South -- brought them enough in line with the alt metal Zeitgeist...
