First up is the COC packages for their “Eye For An Eye” re-release…lots to choose from including the deluxe bundle which includes:
PRE-ORDER Scheduled to ship on or around November 1
“Twenty-six songs showcase the early sonic years of the North Carolina-based band. Far more punk than their later recordings, the album found an immediate fanbase. Fans over the years have called the album an “undisputed classic”, while noting it is “for the true skaters of the mid-to-late-’80s”, and “brings me back to a good time of hardcore/punk”.
Originally released in 1984, Eye for An Eye featured the original lineup of Weatherman, Dean, drummer Reed Mullin, and vocalist Eric Eycke. Reissued to incorporate the 1989 EP by Mike Dean (who left the band between 1987-1992), Eye for An Eye is raw in sound but focused on message. The years that followed would see the band rise to worldwide popularity with breakthrough and Billboard-charting releases Blind and Deliverance.

Vocalist Sven had this to say:
“We are extremely excited to get this out, having just completed the mix of the tune, it has been amazing to see Pete transform this into the mastodon it turned out to be. This is without a doubt the most epic and challenging material the band has EVER worked on just the tip of the iceberg in regards to what we have in store for the second album. I hope people will be as excited about it as we are, it has been a lot of hard work and we cannot wait to play the song live on our upcoming North American tour with Epica! See you all out there to crush some skulls in the name of metaaaal!”
