Chart Attack reports that Corrosion of Conformity drove their record company crazy with their latest album, "In The Arms Of God." Several excerpts from the article:

"We drove the record company crazy with [it]," [guitarist/singer Pepper Keenan] admits. "It just didn't sound the way we wanted it to. We mastered the record three different times with three different people to get it right. The first guy compressed it to sound like a heavy metal album. We wanted it to feel like a jazz record. It needed those ups and downs. Once we heard it, we were like, 'No way. We're doing it again.'"

"We'd made a record that sounded so different compared to other bands. A lot of people forgot how to make classic-sounding records. Everything has to be on 10, raise it to the ceiling, that's not what we wanted. It's hard when there's this big dude who's done a million records and you're telling him that he's not got it right. He understood what we were trying to achieve though, 'cause we spent a lot of time trying to get the finer points in there."

"Hey, it worked and people get it," Keenan says with a confident smile. "Every time someone says to me, 'The drums sound like cannons!' I'm like, 'No shit, motherfucker, we didn't compress the drums!' We knew we were onto something."
