* w/ Red Fang
“…burly, surly and southern-fried – basically, everything fans could hope for.” – Revolver
“The record is filled with the kind of Sabbath meets Black Flag meets Lynyrd Skynyrd jams that were so infectious and wildly influential back when Bill Clinton seduced interns…COC doesn’t try to change direction but instead revisits the approach that made the Keenan-fronted version so successful: powerful hooks, instrumental asides that will remind you of Sabbath’s ‘Planet Caravan’ and a rich use of textures and dynamics…” – Decibel
“If we’re looking at classic rock as a living, breathing organism, one that adapts and evolves over the ever-rolling waves of time, one that holds its original axe-slinging deities in highest esteem but allows for the ordaining of new priests and idols along the way, then it’s really time to let CORROSION OF CONFORMITY luxuriate in the lap of the golden gods… these motherfuckers have been at it forever, and they’ve just made their best album in twenty years.” – Team Rock
“…powerful and unstoppable as an avalanche.” – Kerrang!
“With No Cross No Crown, there is a dramatic sense of power from the moment you hit play…CORROSION OF CONFORMITY has returned with a release that proves that the gentlemen are back on their game and ready to rumble.” – Blabbermouth

“…an essential listen.” – Metal Wani
“…undoubtedly one of finest releases in CORROSION OF CONFORMITY‘s storied career.” – Pop Matters
“…an amazingly composed, heartfelt blues-inspired record… the guys just nailed the sound this time – I mean completely nailed it.” – Metal Insider
“…a triumph… The weight of expectation was heavy, but ultimately COC delivered.” – Punk News
“…a 15 track, prodigious tale derived only in the way that COC can; heavy chugs of guitar tones, a percussive, permanent mantra that digs in from the jump and grabs on tight, and an irresistible bass tone that just makes a mush pie in the pit of your Root Chakra.” – Antihero Magazine
“…where 35-plus years from getting started, most artists still active have long since slid into a mediocrity of form in playing to what’s expected of them, COC here sound reinvigorated and offer a reminder to all willing to hear it of a big part of what made them who they are in the first place.” – The Obelisk
