I take it you know very little about this band. Woody has been in the band for 20 years. He didn't replace anyone.

And no mention of the bands early days, prior to when Pepper joined the band? The two distinct eras of this band are essentially different bands, and this new "band" or album doesn't fit with the Pepper era.

There are countless fans who like those early albums more than the post-Animosity albums, and it's the fans of those albums that love this new one.

CoC were legends in the hardcore/thrash crossover scene before they had minor success in the 90s. To ignore all that doesn't make sense. In the timeline of this band, this new album sits between Animosity and Blind.

And it's a fantastic album.

Not a huge deal, admittedly. Cheers for your input, although obviously I disagree on the final point! BTW, meant vocal replacement, rather than suggesting that they booted Pepper and replaced him with Woody.

No, not a huge deal, but there is a historical context here, and the album plays much better in its rightful place in that context, you know.

Fans of the post-Animosity material were probably shocked by the style shift here, just like fans of the early work couldn't believe what they were hearing when Blind came out. Well, with the Internet and all that, it probably was not that drastic. Blind made heads explode, I think. Haha.

Anyway, this album, I think, is a grower. It's not immediately hooky, you know, but on repeated listens, in the right mood, it just gets better and better.

And Woody doesn't sing, Mike Dean does. =)

Bloody American! I meant 'not a huge deal' as in, no, I don't know a huge deal about the band! :wink:

I did enjoy it, just need more from an album to score it higher. Will be checking their back catalogue out again, especially the early stuff. And hm, my info must have been wrong...

The early stuff is very raw, thrashy hardcore. Not for everyone. That was my intro to the band, but I definitely like the stuff from Blind and after much better.

Early CoC is so good.
