CORROSION OF CONFORMITY MEGALODON reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

UMUR
"Megalodon" is an EP release by US stoner/heavy metal act Corrosion of Conformity. The EP was released as a free digital download by Scian AV in November 2012. It´s the group´s second major release this year as they released their self-titled comeback album back in February.

While the self-titled full-length was a bit of an eclectic release, which featured both hardcore, traditional heavy metal and stoner metal elements, the "Megalodon" EP features 5 tracks that are firmly placed in the stoner metal style. The Black Sabbath worship is obvious and at times (Especially in the opening track "Feed On", there are nods towards mid-nineties Cathedral). The tempo is mostly mid-paced and the riffs are blues based and doomy. The three members of the band again share the vocal duties (like they did on the preceeding album release), and again it´s drummer Reed Mullin that leaves most of an impression on me. While the other two deliver some decent vocal performances, it´s obviously in this department Corrosion of Conformity are a bit lacking. Losing a strong and distinct sounding vocalist like Pepper Keenan is always going to be a big loss and while the three remaining members do a decent job, I suspect Corrosion of Conformity won´t hit the major leagues again before they recruit a more distinct sounding lead vocalist. A bit harsh maybe, because the rest of the music is of high quality and the same can be said about the sound production and the songwriting in general, but it´s my honest opinion.

Of course that doesn´t mean I don´t enjoy "Megalodon", because I certainly do. It´s just that I think, it probably would have been an even stronger release with another lead vocalist. As it is now, it´s still a very strong release though and the fact that it´s offered up for free download sure doesn´t make things worse. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

Corrosion of Conformity are a favorite band of mine, but I've mostly listened to their releases from the last millenium. It may be their classification as sludge metal at this point. So, the Megalodon EP was my opportunity to catch up with the band. I don't need to discuss the sound of this EP, since UMUR has already done that very well. I will support his statements about the vocals, which are the weakest aspect of the band at this point. On the plus side, listening to Megalodon reminds me of what a strong drummer Reed Mullins is. His contributions are the most noticeable. This may not be the most distinctive of COC's releases, but it is a quality EP.
