Corrosion Of Conformity's Eye For An Eye Being Reissued
This special reissue has been remastered/packaged and includes the EP Six Songs With Mike Singing. Both titles have been out of print for years. It follows the successful release of the band's self-titled album earlier this year.
A deluxe digibook edition of the album, limited to 1000 for North America, will be available at limited retailers and via Candlelight's official webstore. The digibook version includes extended liner notes and a rare pictorial gallery.
Twenty-six songs showcase the early sonic years of the North Carolina-based band. Far more punk than their later recordings, the album found an immediate fanbase. Amazon customers over the years have called the album an "undisputed classic," while noting it is "for the true skaters of the mid-to-late-'80s," and "brings me back to a good time of hardcore/punk." Guitarist Woody Weatherman comments, "We were just kids when we wrote and recorded these tunes." Vocalist/bassist Mike Dean notes, "Making that album was our dream and we worked hard to make it happen because it was the vehicle to allow us to go out and play two hundred shows a year, like the bands we looked up to – Black Flag, Bad Brains, D.O.A."
Formed in Raleigh in 1982, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY quickly transformed heavy music. Politically charged and socially aware, the band has influenced countless others and today remains humble about their accomplishments. With over 1.1 million albums sold in the United States, the band continues to find new fans via nonstop touring.
"We had a lot of fun doing it and it's great to have this album officially back out there again," says Weatherman. "I had basically written this off as being our sloppy beginner's effort but listening to it now, I really hear a few songs that hold up well," adds Dean.
