In the Arms of God

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Prior to Corrosion of Conformity's 2005 release, In the Arms of God, many fans wondered if the group was over. After all, it had been a long time since the band had issued a studio set 2000's America's Volume Dealer. During this extended break, singer/guitarist Pepper Keenan did double duty in Down 2002's Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow, and of course, had a much publicized tryout for the vacated bass position in Metallica as seen in the indulgent Some Kind of Monster docu-film.

Prior to Corrosion of Conformity's 2005 release, In the Arms of God, many fans wondered if the group was over. After all, it had been a long time since the band had issued a studio set 2000's America's Volume Dealer. During this extended break, singer/guitarist Pepper Keenan did double duty in Down 2002's Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow, and of course, had a much publicized tryout for the vacated bass position in Metallica as seen in the indulgent Some Kind of Monster docu-film. But now COC is ready to roar once more, and the group does so on their eighth studio album overall. Joining Keenan once more are other mainstays Woody Weatherman guitar and Mike Dean bass, as well as a big surprise on drums -- Galactic timekeeper Stanton Moore. To prime themselves for the sessions, the group immersed themselves in old hardcore and metal albums they hadn't listened to in years, and the approach worked, as In the Arms of God is a straight-ahead and raw set. The beginning of the album opener "Stone Breakers" closely resembles a Tony Iommi-led Sabbath jam, while such other ragers as "Paranoid Opioid" and "Never Turns to More" are classic COC. Along with Black Label Society, COC continue to wave the biker metal flag high.
