Corrosion of Conformity rocked New York City’s Gramercy Theater last night (March 1) with support from Torche, Valient Thorr and A Storm of Light.

The heavy metal trio hit the stage and played an intimate gig for old school and new school fans in support of their new self-titled album. Frontman Mike Dean sounded incredible, guitarist Woodroe Weatherman shredded and played those piecing notes flawlessly while drummer and vocalist Reed Mullin hammered away behind his drum set. There’s no question Corrosion of Conformity had the loudest set of the night.

Torche tore up the stage with their catchy riffs and hearty drum patterns as their die-hard fans rocked out and lined the front row. Guitarist and vocalist Andrew Elstner humbly expressed to the crowd that in his high school rock band he played a Corrosion of Conformity song for a talent show and that he’s come full circle by having the opportunity to tour with them now.

Valient Thorr delivered a vigorous set, as the band of bearded fellows put on one hell of a performance. At one point, frontman Valient Himself, who donned some serious orange high top sneakers, ripped off his shirt and started doing pushups onstage. Not to mention, he also joined the crowd behind the barricade and made everyone sit on the floor and sway back and forth. To say the least, Valient Thorr are one band every rock fan should see live.

New York based band A Storm of Light kicked off the night with a solid set. The band features frontman Josh Graham, bassist Domenic Seita, guitarist Andrea Black and drummer Billy Graves.
