CORROSION OF CONFORMITY

THE POUR HOUSE, RALEIGH

WEDNESDAY, DEC. 31

By the time Corrosion of Conformity ends its set sometime after midnight on Jan. 1, 2015, the band's versatile and three-piece configuration—guitarist Woody Weatherman, bassist Mike Dean and drummer Reed Mullin—will have finished the first five-year phase of its reunion. When the trio relaunched in 2010, they referred to themselves as the Animosity lineup, taking the name from their 1985 Metal Blade record. The distinction made it clear that they were neither the Southern rock major-label hounds of the '90s nor the purely barking hardcore group they'd been in their earliest days. The tag is no longer required, as COC has gone on to make two very good albums, collectively pulling the threads of a 30-year career into a few LPs. Next year, Pepper Keenan, the divisive frontman who took them to their peak of popularity, returns. The move has angered some but delighted others. It should, however, surprise no one, as COC only sat still when it was asleep. Excellent proto-metal advancers Demon Eye open alongside Bedowyn, whose sharp stoner metal only seems to get stronger. 9 p.m., $20–$25, 224 S. Blount St., Raleigh, 919-821-1120, thepourhousemusichall.com. —Grayson Haver Currin
