Highway to hell!! C.o.C. sure is a large teeth in the jaw of 80s US hardcore, their name would always pop up in the same sentence along Septic Death, Poison Idea, The Accüsed, Suicidal Tendencies, Verbal Abuse, DRI, Offenders... Then they released the incredible crossover monsters Animosity and Technocracy, two of the best records on the planet. Blind was disappointing at first, but once you had swallowed the fact it wasn't an extended Technocracy, you got hooked to its amazing grrrrroovy Prong-tallica metal, totally hot! On the following albums they turn to BlackFootSabbatallica southern stoner hard rock which is also excellent and more intense than usual (thanks to the awesome drumming), although I'm not too excited about America's Volume Dealer's exagerated radio friendliness. Also included here is a repost of Snake Nation, a one-album side project of doomy sludge thrash rock with a Clue Cheer cover. Snake Nation feature Mike Dean and Woody W. and the album is a dark rock masterpiece that surpasses all the C.o.C. stoner albums if you ask me.
Worship the kings of crossover!!!

  2. Didn't Reed just do a tour with the guy who sang on Blind?

    Oh, and you're right...America's Volume Dealer sucked big time.

  3. I saw them on both Animosity and Technocracy tours....Animosity was the winner hands down. Technocracy era singer Simon Bob was just ok.

    1. Sorry no... C.O.C. (or more probably their people from the record company) logged legal complaints to mediafucker, who then selected my account for removal during the megaupload mass hysteria. So I won't reload any C.O.C., I don't want to risk the new version (with flac uploads) of this blog.
