RANDY BLYTHE Collaborating With CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and DAVE GROHL On New Project
Legendary hardcore punk group Corrosion of Conformity are going to have Lamb of God's Randall Blythe on the mic for a new project, which also involves coolest man in rock, Dave Grohl. Prepare yourself.
Blythe elaborated on the collaboration on his Instagram page, posting the above photo with this caption:
This is me with Mike Dean & Reed Mullin of the legendary NC band, Corrosion of Conformity. Their record, "Animosity", is a HUGE influence on me, in fact the vocals on that record by these two men were the first screaming type music I tried to sing along to, EVER. Reed had a track he wanted me to write lyrics for & sing on, so I did (title is "Hung Out To Dry")- it's old-school COC style thrash punk & I killed it on the mic last night- SO FAST! It was a huge honor for me to work on this- it will eventually come out as a project called TEENAGE TIME KILLER (named after a Rudimentary Peni song) w/a bunch of cool vocalists. The instruments were recorded at Dave Grohl's studio (watch his documentary, Sound City- track was recorded on THAT board)- Grohl will add a couple of guitar tracks to the tune too. So good! Then I interviewed these two for The Crucible.
I'm interested to see where Blythe goes with it, given that Corrosion isn't nearly as heavy as Lamb is (not that it's a bad thing). Is he gonna go full on screaming nuts? Or maybe a more punk approach given his background with the punk scene? I guess we'll see, but it'll definitely be cool to hear at the very least!
