Corrosion of Conformity, Righteous Fool, Black Tusk, US Christmas

When: Sat., July 31, 9:30 p.m. 2010

The big story here is the return of the original Raleigh hardcore (and, eventually, crossover) institution Corrosion of Conformity. Mike Dean, Woody Weatherman and Reed Mullin started the thing at the dawn of the '80s, though a dozen others eventually dotted their three-decade chronology. COC is headed to California for The Power of the Riff Festival, curated by Greg Anderson of Sunn O))) and Goatsnake, so consider this a warm-up. The better story, though, might be the intersection of Black Tusk and U.S. Christmas, two rising stars in Southern metal: Black Tusk's direct maw mixes hardcore clip and stoner viscosity, not unlike latter iterations of COC, while U.S. Christmas refracts and reshapes its psychedelic metal between twin poles of doom and chug. Also, Mike Dean's Righteous Fool.—Grayson Currin
