Corrosion of Conformity's Heavy Night at Slim's
Corrosion of Conformity Slim's January 29, 2017 Photos by Raymond Ahner Supporting their latest release album No Cross No Crown, North Carolina hardcore/heavy metal stalwarts Corrosion of Conformity recently pulled into Slim's in San Francisco and delivered a blistering set in front of a beyond sold out crowd. With a venue so full that another body could not have possibly been squeezed in, C.O.C. hit the stage with "Stonebreaker" and never looked back, playing some of their biggest songs during the evening. Frontman Pepper Keenan sounded just as good as ever, delivering every song with the same heaviness as when they were originally recorded. Founding members Woody Weatherman (guitar) and Mike Dean (bass) owned their respective side of the stage, with Dean pacing back and forth while keeping the low-end heavy. Highlights from the band's set included "Wiseblood," "Who's Got the Fire," "Vote With a Bullet," and an encore of "Clean My Wounds," which was dedicated to Bay Area metal bands
