Captured by the band alongside long-time friend and colleague John Custer, writing for "IX" commenced in the early months of 2013 with demoing and recording starting by Summer's end. Completed in January, "IX" clocks in at nearly forty-five minutes. Sludge, doom, punk... it's all in the grooves that fans have come to expect from Corrosion Of Conformity.
The planned June 24th release date of "IX" was moved to July 1st with the 180-gram vinyl pressing expected later in the month. Fans that preordered the CD directly from Candlelight should be finding their copy in post boxes now as the eleven-song digipak continues to garner glowing reviews critics nationally.
In a recent 8/10 review of the long player, Decibel Magazine gushes, "COC stick to the recipe that served them well on both 2012's self-titled reboot and the follow-up EP, Megalodon: A little hardcore, a little crossover, a whole lotta Southern rock and (especially) doom metal, all stirred, shuffled, layered and frosted in ways that make guessing their next move impossible. But the band's strategies are more expansive this time out, their tricks more finely woven into the fabric of each song." Crowning the record "Album Of The Month," Metal Reviews commends, "the sound of an experienced band who can still make a heavy and fresh-sounding album," while Loudwire adds, "The album's production is full with plenty of low end, showcasing the thick riffs and potent rhythm section. Clocking in at just over forty-two-minutes, the band delivers the goods and doesn't overstay their welcome."
In celebration of its approaching release, The Onion's A.V. Club is currently streaming "IX" in its entirety, lauding its variation between "smoke-wreathed grooves and sludgy rushes of belligerence, the album is a meat-and-potatoes feast."

The band recently grabbed the highest chart debut of their career with their latest album, "All You Can Eat", released on Open E Records via Kobalt Label Services. The album stormed the top of the charts landing at #12 on the UK Album Chart.
The 3rd single to be taken from the album,"You’re Beautiful When You Don’t Talk", will impact in the UK on Monday to coincide with the bands main stage performance at Download Festival this Sunday. Additionally the band will be hosting this years’ Metal Hammer Golden God Awards at the 02 Indigo on Monday night (16th June).
GMA has learned overnight that Trivium have parted with their drummer Nick Augusto.
The band have put out a statement in light of this news (we must stress that at present it is not known if Mat will take up drumming duties permanently, for now he is temporarily covering the current US tour dates with Volbeat).
"To Trivium Fans, Friends and Family:
I had asked everyone to make this statement regarding Nick, personally and on behalf of the band because of the history we both have had together as friends and bandmates. There is no easy way to go about parting ways with someone; whether it's in a band or not, but if it is coming directly from one of us, I hope that it will be perceived out of our respect for him.
This past Sunday, Matt, Corey, and I decided that it was best to part ways with Nick and to move forward as soon as possible. This decision was not one that we took lightly, given the fact that we are in the midst of a tour, and more importantly, that Nick has been with us for almost 3 and half years.
We spoke face to face for about an hour on the bus - first informing him of our decision to move forward, both discussing the situation and how to precede with announcing it, as well as personally thanking him for being there when we needed him as a tech, and then as drummer. I made both those calls to Nick - I asked him if he would be willing to drop everything and come out and be apart of Trivium at a moments notice and he did without hesitation. On stage we all fit well together - I believe we became a tighter and more unified band because of him. There was not a dramatic ending to this, honestly it was quite muted and I am happy to have been able to speak directly and calmly to one another.
I believe we all agreed that what started out great "off stage" in the beginning, over time began to fray. It became obvious that things were not going to work out in the long run. We did not want to reach the point where the differences between us became apparent on stage. Being in a band is privilege afforded to us by all of you, and as much as we owe you guys the best show we can possibly give you, we also realize that being out here has to be enjoyable enough for us to continue to do so.
We truly wish nothing but the best for Nick and whatever projects he becomes involved in. We will be rooting for him to succeed. I would like to add that as the one who championed Nick to become our drummer 3 and half years ago, I will be the first person to vouch for him as an incredible drummer and as an immense force and presence on stage. The last show together at Carolina Rebellion was a powerful one, and I am happy to say that we ended our time together on such a high and positive note.
Lastly, I would like to thank our drum tech Mat Madiro for stepping up to the plate and learning our entire set in 24 hours, allowing us to continue this tour without a hitch. We have always tried to treat both band and crew as family, and the support for Mat from our other crew guys has been amazing, thank you all - Eric, Joey, Sam, Jeremy, and Mike! Another HUGE thank you to Volbeat and their crew for giving us their entire sound check at the Niagara Falls show to allow us to run through the set with Mat. They have been a great band to tour with and this act only further solidified to us what stand up guys they are on and off stage.
Nick, thank you once again for the hard work with us, we will always be grateful for the time we spent together with you on the road and in the studio".
Thank you all for your support and understanding.
