Corrosion Of Conformity Reveal Drummer For New Album


With the 2020 passing of their drummer/vocalist Reed Mullin, Southern metallers Corrosion Of Conformity were presented with the unfortunate task of finding a replacement for their upcoming eleventh studio album. Luckily for the band, they have some experience in the matter, as they’ve recruited Stanton Moore (of Galactic, etc.) to once again sit behind the kit on the sessions for that new record. Moore previously appeared on the band’s sole album without Mullin: 2005’s “In The Arms Of God“.

John Green, who served as Mullin‘s drum tech, has been filling in at live shows since Mullin‘s passing. Speaking with MetalSucks, the band’s bassist/vocalist Mike Dean commented of Moore‘s return:

“Yeah, man. That’s true; I think we will be working with Stanton again. So, history repeats itself all these years later; Stanton played on ‘In The Arms Of God‘, and I think he’s going to be working with us again for the next record. Having him aboard, I think you need to get a little nerdy to describe it because Stanton has got his own particular way that he wants to play.

He wants to play kick drums in his jazzy way and likes to have the drums heads up front, so it’s more of a traditional-sounding thing. And all of Stanton‘s fills are very second-line sounding, and he has these little phrases that are unique to him.”

Despite his involvement in the studio, Dean has confirmed that Moore won’t be joining the band on a permanent basis. Current plans have have the group turning their focus towards that record after wrapping up their November headlining run with Spirit Adrift and The Native Howl:
