Corrosion of Conformity

Corrosion of Conformity (C.O.C.) are reuniting with guitarist/vocalist Pepper Keenan for UK/European and North American dates. Other than a few surprise appearances, this will be the first time Keenan has toured with the band since 2006. This will also be the first time the “Deliverance” lineup of the group has played together since 2001. C.O.C. recently emerged from hibernation as a trio and released 2012’s eponymous album and 2014’s “IX” to wide acclaim, but many have been eagerly awaiting the return of Pepper Keenan. The band were originally an influential hardcore punk/heavy metal crossover act before reaching critical success with a new lineup on 1991’s “Blind” album. That trajectory continued with wider appeal as Keenan took over as primary vocalist on “Deliverance” (1994) and “Wiseblood” (1996). These two recordings in particular fused the raw energy of the previous albums with some great strides forward in classic rock inspired songwriting and more spacious production and execution, which were often copied but rarely equalled. This juggernaut gained mass and momentum with relentless touring alongside Metallica, Clutch, Eyehategod and many more. Eventually following “In the Arms of God”, 2005, Keenan focused all energy on his hometown band Down. Until now, that is. Recent internet chatter on the subject of a reunion turns out be true.

The Skull

The Skull features original Trouble member vocalist Eric Wagner alongside longtime former Trouble bassist Ron Holzner with guitarist Lothar Keller (Sacred Dawn), drummer Brian Dixon (Cathedral) and guitarist Rob Wrong (Witch Mountain).

“The Skull” is made up of a group of very talented members whose main goal is to bring back the unique sound of American Doom Metal band “Trouble” combined with new material which has all the quality and feel of the original sound, plus so much more. (Source) (Read more about The Skull)

Witch Mountain

Based out of Portland, Oregon, Witch Mountain have been delivering apocalyptic, shuddering doom metal since their formation in 1997. In the early phase of their career, the band — consisting of guitarist and vocalist Rob Wrong, bassist Dave Hoopaugh, and drummer Nate Carson — made a name for themselves playing with the likes of YOB, Eyehategod, and Electric Wizard, and in 2001 released their debut, Come the Mountain. In 2002 the band slowed down, with the members focusing on family and other projects, but Witch Mountain found a creative resurgence in 2009 when singer Uta Plotkin was invited to join the band as their permanent singer. As a quartet, the band’s sound found a new sense of ominous drama, and riding the wave of creativity, they released their long-awaited follow-up, South of Salem, in 2011. Later that year, Witch Mountain signed with label Profound Lore, and released Cauldron of the Wild in 2012. A European tour in support of Nik Turner’s Hawkwind preceded the 2014 release of Mobile of Angels, an album produced by Billy Anderson. (Source)

Mothership

Supersonic intergalactic heavy rock trio Mothership based out of Dallas, Texas give a real sense of hope that all is well in the universe, and that pure honest rock and roll has once again returned to this planet on a mission to unite true believers. Consisting of brothers Kyle Juett on bass/lead vocals, Kelley Juett on guitar/vocals, and Judge Smith on drums, these guys have created a unique sound that satisfies like a steaming hot stew of UFO and Iron Maiden, blended with the southern swagger of Molly Hatchet and ZZ Top, paired with a deadly chalice of Black Sabbath. Mothership’s goal from the beginning has been to carry on the tradition of the classic rock style of the ’70′s, updated and amped up for the modern day. The band has been non-stop road warriors since the release of their debut album in February 2013 on Ripple Music successfully invading the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Europe playing either on festival stages, night clubs, or outdoors under the sun at motorcycle parties. This heavy rock juggernaut has only just begun their tear across the universal cosmos and have no plans of ever slowing down. Do not miss your chance to hop on board and TRIP ON THE SHIP. (Source)
