C.O.C. On "No Cross No Crown," Voting And More

Few bands can change their sound as time goes by and still retain a loyal fan base and a revered legacy. While many bands such as Metallica, Kreator and even D.R.I. have received backlash from fans for not repeating the same sound, Corrosion Of Conformity is a group which has evolved and explored new areas in their music since their inception, making them just as beloved by fans of hardcore punk as by fans of blues rooted, stoner metal.

At their recent show in Cardiff, the penultimate in the impressive tour package with Orange Goblin, Fireball Ministry and Black Moth, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Corrosion Of Conformity guitarist Woody Weatherman to discuss this wide range of material, the new album, "No Cross No Crown" and the classic "Vote With A Bullet" and the importance that song still holds today. You can watch the interview in full below. More...

Triptykon to perform "Requiem" at Roadburn 2019

Roadburn has announced the first of three specially commissioned pieces to be performed at the festival in 2019 (April 11-14, Tilburg, The Netherlands). Tom G. Warrior, who was a Roadburn guest curator in 2010 and also performed there in 2014, will be presenting the full three-part "Requiem" with Triptykon, with orchestral accompaniment by the world-renowned Dutch Metropole Orkest.

The first part of the piece appeared on Celtic Frost's "Into The Pandemonium" in 1987, titled "Rex Irae". The third part, "Winter", was included on "Monotheist" in 2006. The missing middle part is now being composed by Warrior for this special commission.

Warrior explains:

The intention to finish the full Requiem remained with me. I was going to do it one distant day with Triptykon, the group I formed to continue to pursue the path I began in Hellhammer and Celtic Frost. It was 2018, yet again 16 years after I last worked on the Requiem, when Walter Hoeijmakers, founder of the legendary Roadburn Festival and one of my most beloved friends, contacted me to propose Roadburn as the venue to perform, at long last, the finished Requiem.

Walter and his team very kindly provided for the resources necessary for such a substantial undertaking, and so, at 54 by now, I found myself commencing work on the second and thus final part of the Requiem this year.

The three parts of the Requiem will therefore be performed by Triptykon at Roadburn 2019, with full classical orchestration, congregated specifically for this occasion by Florian Magnus Maier, who is our esteemed classical collaborator and arranger in this project, and whose patience with me appears to be limitless. We feel very proud and deeply honoured to be joined in this endeavour by the renowned Dutch Metropole Orkest.

More details about the commission can be found on the Roadburn web site. More...
