Corrosion of Conformity, Torche, Black Cobra 

When: Fri., June 1 2012
Price: $15
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY/TORCHE Raleigh punk-metal progenitors Corrosion of Conformity, whose 30-year history reads like a crash course in aggressive genres, released a self-titled record earlier this year. It’s a good career summary for those who didn’t grow up with the band, and a solid dose of shred-n-yell for those who did. Torche, Florida’s kings of sunshiney doom-metal pop (no kidding), bring a driving power-stoner squall with amazing titles like “Kiss Me Dudely.” This year’s Harmonicraft is solid — and you gotta love the Lisa Frank-reminiscent cover art — but 2008’s Meanderthal was one of the best records of that year, metal or not.
