Saturday, January 19th, Corrosion Of Conformity took over the Alamo City Music Hall for an incredible night of Sludge Metal dominance. Taking the stage and building anticipation with the prolonged intro, the band crashed down on the shrieking notes of their song, Stone Breaker, whipping the crowd in a groove-laced frenzy as the moshpit tore open. Corrosion has always been a band that has blended punishingly heavy riffs with equal parts flowing groove and technical precision, and the band highlighted this playing through their hits like Vote With A Bullet, Paranoid Opioid, and their newest single, The Luddite. A particularly interesting addition to the setlist was the song Seven Days that the band introduced as one of their heaviest offerings. While it did feed fire into the already restless crowd, I can’t help but disagree with the band that it’s not the heaviness that sets this song apart, but it’s complete slide into Doom riffs and Blues vocals. Ultimately though the band had no other way to close the show than the two titanic crowd-pleasers of Clean My Wounds and Albatross, both of which entranced fans with prolonged solos.
