Metal’s Modern Jazz Moment

Uh, sorry to make you strain your eyes with this one. I still don’t get why wordpress lets me enlarge some pieces, but not others. Anyway, the three main bands discussed here are Corrosion of Conformity, Die Kreuzen and Prong. Not quite sure what I was trying to get at — Metal’s been art-rock from Day One. Some metal bands were always artsier than others, of course, but Motörhead was the exception, not the rule (and even they evolved out of Hawkwind!) I don’t remember why I had such a hair up my ass about free jazz at that point, either.

Village Voice, 10 December 1991
