BACK TO CD
Our theme song! This number started as an attempt to write a 'nu-metal' song - a direct ripoff of Korn, with Marilyn Manson influences. Instead of that we got this! The lyrics were originally prototyped in between classes at U.N.O. in the early 90's, but like many other C.O.G. songs, were altered beyond recognition by the time the recording was actually done.
The guitar solo was played with a Craftsman electric cordless drill, and recorded along with all other guitars through Chris's Marshall stack. After we tracked the bass, we attempted to tune it down a whole octave to double the bridge. The strings flopped around limply against the pickups, and that's what you hear under the guitar solo. In an attempt to be controversial, I tacked on the 'Gregorian' church organ intro, triple tracking the organs through an Alesis QS6 keyboard.
'Bow To the C.O.G.!' has become one of our fans' most enduring and oft repeated catch-phrases...
