It's A Mad World

ultra-rare ~ have never seen another one ~ ever.

1985 Corrosion of Conformity - "Animosity" tour t-shirt

From the end of 1984 until late spring of 1986 three guys from Raleigh North Carolina of all places, forever changed the musical landscape by combining their love for Black Flag and Venom. C.O.C's 1985 release "Animosity" stands today as one of the heaviest pieces of vinyl you could have in your collection.

Remember these guys created this sound 25 years ago. Amazing! All thrash bands since can be traced directly back to this brief but brilliant artistic maelstrom!
