Video footage of the reunited classic "Animosity" lineup of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY — Mike Dean (bass, vocals), Woody Weatherman (guitar) and Reed Mullin (drums) — performing the songs "Consumed", "Loss For Words" and one new track last night (Saturday, August 14) in Denver, Colorado can be viewed below.In an August 9 interview with Metal Assault, Mike Dean stated about the progress of the songwriting/recording sessions for CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's next album, "We actually have five new songs put together enough to perform now and the rest of it is kind of a work in progress. But creatively speaking, I think we're in a process where we're cranking out the music in a natural way and it's coming together. So I think in another couple of months we should be ready to record in earnest. I'm not sure if we're going to keep recording ourselves up there at the farm or we'll go to a fancier facility. I think we have our current take on our classic style in mind. We're definitely expanding on our past identity but we kind of have some new stuff to offer. So I'm excited about it. I want it to come together quickly without over-thinking it." When asked about the reports that CORROSION OF CONFORMITY will eventually revert to a four-piece format and record another studio album with guitarist/vocalist Pepper Keenan (also of DOWN), Mike said, "Well, the truth in that is we want to do a three-piece full-length recording and we're going to do it. But I think our next move after supporting that a little bit, will be to look toward changing it up again and depending on the schedule of DOWN and Pepper, doing something with him because I think people would be excited to hear that. I thought that 'In The Arms Of God', the last recording that we did with him, was really amazing. I thought he had some good ideas and really enjoyed doing it. We didn't tour enough on it, partially because of DOWN's schedule and partially because our record company was in the process of going under, also the Hurricane Katrina striking at that time. It was bad for Pepper as he had to cancel some dates to get back to normal and all that. So we came out with a really good release but never got a chance to support it. Just the idea of expanding on what we were doing in 'In The Arms Of God' and then bringing Reed back in to play drums, for me that would be really exciting."
