Before Corrosion Of Conformity would join the family of groove-truckin’ bands like Crowbar and Kyuss, the Raleigh, NC, unit were just three hardcore kids pioneering punk’s crossover with thrash-metal. Their second record, 1985’s Animosity, is a 26-minute blast that unites Metallica’s flaming-spear riffage, the Bad Brains’ cartoonish zip and the slow chug sections of Black Flag’s My War — but with an even more overt reverence for Sabbathian fuzz, hinting at CoC’s sludge metamorphosis in the following decade.
It was originally released on October 25, 1985. The album cover art was done by artist Pushead.
