North Carolina crossover kings Corrosion of Conformity's previously reported side-project Teenage Time Killers are apparently in the mixing stage for their debut release, and they have revealed the recording includes added appearances from the likes of Dead Kennedys vocalist Jello Biafra, ex-Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri and a number of other figures from the metal and hardcore worlds.
As previously reported, the project had C.O.C. drummer Reed Mullin and bassist/vocalist Mike Dean hitting Dave Grohl's Studio 606, and they were helped on cuts by both the Foo Fighters leader and by Lamb of God's Randy Blythe. Mullin has now revealed a few more details behind the debut on New York radio station WFMU's The Goddamn Dave Hill Show [via The PRP].
During the interview earlier this week, Mullin explained that Teenage Time Killers brought in Biafra to sing comedian John Cleese's poem "Ode to Hannity," a send-up on conservative U.S. political commentator Sean Hannity that is here set against a hardcore backdrop.
Other artists Mullin confirmed are attached to the LP include Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor, Fear's Lee Ving, Prong leader Tommy Victor, Sunn O)))'s Greg Anderson, Scream/Goatsnkae vet Pete Stahl, Pat Hoed of Brujeria, Clutch's Neil Fallon, Articles of Faith vocalist Nic Bondi and BL'AST's Clifford Dinsmore.
"Originally the idea was that we were going to do four or five songs," Mullin said, admitting that the tracklist has since ballooned to 21 songs. "We had all these other folks that want to participate."
Mullin also added that Grohl played on roughly 12 songs from the set.
While neither a tracklisting nor an official ETA for the album has been detailed, Mullin did premiere the jud-judding album track "The Dead Hand" on the radio program. You can hear the song, on which Mullin screams in his self-described Tom Araya (Slayer) voice, around the 52-minute mark in the player down below.
"It's a very good mixture of old hardcore punk, punk and metal stuff," Mullin summed up of Teenage Time Killers' debut. "People are going to be pleasantly surprised. It's pretty cool."
