After Black Label Society had to cancel their Tuesday night show due to illness, something good came out it in the end. The Opera House in Toronto graciously hosted American heavy rockers Corrosion Of Conformity, the new headliner, along with New Orleans metalheads EyeHateGod and local act Pale Mare.

As a last-minute concert, tickets were only available at the door. Considering that it was a last-minute show, and on a Tuesday night, and it was minus a kazillion degrees (give or take a degree), the venue and Inertia Entertainment pulled off a killer show. The house was absolutely packed and the place was rockin’!

I arrived in time to catch Toronto’s Pale Mare who really warmed things up for NOLA sludge metal band EyeHateGod who only added fuel to the fire ahead of Corrosion Of Conformity’s blistering performance. Well done, all!
