The brainchild of Erik Ogershok, COTS was initially manifested in the winter of 2006. Several local appearances and line up fluctuations later, life happened, and the project laid dormant. The project was resurrected with renewed vigor and purpose in 2014. Abandon All Hope! Erik Ogershok has been involved in metal his entire life, from musician to record store clerk. He's toured the country with numerous acts in the underground over the years and continues to keep the flame burning with his current group Canyon of the Skull. When he's not melting faces on guitar, he's knee deep in the tanks or flying around to your town on business as the Brewmaster of WarPigs USA.
