2022 reissue, 2×12″ LP, Century Media/Columbia. Red vinyl.
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1991 album. Originally forming as very much a hardcore punk band, in Rayleigh, North Carolina in 1982, C.O.C. then featured bassist and vocalist Mike Dean, guitarist Woody Weatherman and drummer Reed Mullin. By the time of their third album BLIND, Corrosion of Conformity had switched to a very much more metal orientated sound, and was their first album to get more mainstream attention leading to a major label deal with Columbia Records. The only album to feature Karl Agell on lead vocals, the band was also joined by Phil Swisher on bass and future Down collaborator Pepper Keenan on guitar and vocals.
