An incredibly interesting collaboration is soon to invade your ears. Singer-bassist Mike Dean and singer-drummer Reed Mullin of hardcore punk veterans Corrosion of Conformity have joined forces with Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and various others to create the new project, Teenage Time Killer.
Randy Blythe posted an Instagram photo of himself with Dean and Mullin yesterday (May 9), flaunting the metal orb / invisible orange pose alongside the punk legends. The Teenage Time Killer project, which is named after a Rudimentary Peni song, promises to feature “a bunch of cool vocalists.” Additionally, the instrumental sections of the project were recorded at Dave Grohl’s personal studio on the famous Sound City mixing board, which was the central focus of Grohl’s acclaimed ‘Sound City: Real to Reel’ documentary.
Blythes writes on his Instagram profile:
This is me with Mike Dean & Reed Mullin of the legendary NC band, Corrosion of Conformity. Their record, “Animosity”, is a HUGE influence on me, in fact the vocals on that record by these two men were the first screaming type music I tried to sing along to, EVER. Reed had a track he wanted me to write lyrics for & sing on, so I did (title is “Hung Out To Dry”)- it’s old-school COC style thrash punk & I killed it on the mic last night- SO FAST! It was a huge honor for me to work on this- it will eventually come out as a project called TEENAGE TIME KILLER (named after a Rudimentary Peni song) w/a bunch of cool vocalists. The instruments were recorded at Dave Grohl’s studio (watch his documentary, Sound City- track was recorded on THAT board)- Grohl will add a couple of guitar tracks to the tune too. So good! Then I interviewed these two for The Crucible.
Stay tuned for more news on the Teenage Time Killer project as more information is released.
