About Corrosion of Conformity
Corrosion of Conformity, or C.O.C., formed in 1982. The heavy metal band’s line-up has undergone changes throughout the years with Woody Weatherman, Mike Dean and Reed Mullin being the band’s founding members.
Pepper Keenan joined in 1989 on guitar. The group released a number of records including 1991’s Blind album, which landed the heavy metal band critical success.
However, it was with the release of 1994’s Deliverance that the band reached huge success. It was on this album that Pepper Keenan became the primary vocalist. The album went on to be the group’s biggest-selling.
Two years later and Wiseblood followed, again with Keenan on lead vocals. C.O.C. went on to tour with the likes of Metallica, Clutch and more. Their live shows received huge praise while the band was commended for their records’ production and execution.
The group went on to release America’s Volume Dealer in 2000 followed by In The Arms of God in 2005. The latter of which is the only C.O.C. album not to feature Reed Mullin on drums after his departure from the band.
Pepper Keenan left the band in 2005 after In The Arms of God. The group went on to produce 2012’s Corrosion of Conformity and 2014’s IX minus Keenan but with Mullin back in the line-up. Now with the return of Pepper Keenan the group are said to be working on new material.
