Biography

Hailing from all corners of the United States, Rollin Carver (vocals), Tripp Gaddy (guitar), Chuck Cooper (drums), and Billy Raim (bass) who now reside in Myrtle Beach, SC, immediately took to the road following the release of “the face of aggression” (2002), touring the US with the sonically varied likes of Sevendust, Cold, Trapt, Revis, Nonpoint, Flaw, Life of Agony, Apartment 26, Mudvayne, Shinedown, Spineshank, Skrape, Nothingface, Chimaira, Presence, Soulfly, System of a Down, Saliva, 3 Doors Down , Default, Memento, Socialburn, 12 Stones, Hatebreed, Corrosion of Conformity, Lacuna Coil, Trust Company, Echo 7, E-Town Concrete, Sloth, Down the Sun, Soil and Crossfade.

After touring the country and releasing two additional EP’s, (2003 & 2004) the band took time off to write new material. Armed with a surplus of ideas, musically the band was more focused. A conscious effort to keep the album clean was in effect as well. The resulting new album is “Turning Point”.


The right team had to come together to make such a new & powerful album. Turning Point was Produced and Mixed by Dan Hannon. Confliction chose Hannon specifically to achieve a very raw sound with eerily - angelic vocals. The band then switched gears and chose veteran Rodney Mills (STP, Rage Against The Machine, Soil, Pearl Jam) for Mastering. The combination proved perfect and brought out the best in this unique act.

    Sucks these guys never got a chance on a major label because they write good songs & I'm sure are great live! Matt Fortin would tell me the story of Chad Gray watching the band open for them & making sure they finished out the rest of the tour with Mudvayne (as he dug em that much) that's saying a lot!

    OK well that made no sense. It's evident you know next to nothing about music, I truly get that now. Confliction for a working-class band who never got to record with a big label/big budget are a good band and Parade the Serpent's way more evolved than Turning Point, just listen to it a good amount of times then form an opinion otherwise you sound like an incompetent jackass.

    Not really there's way more going on in this one than Turning Point which was a good record.

    Shame these guys never really got heard. I found about em from meeting Matt when he joined Black Market Hero. He should leave that band, Confliction was much better.

    It sucks that Confliction threw in the towel, but it also sucks that record labels fucked around with them for so long and didn't sign them when they promised to. Whatever. The guys in the band are nice dudes, and I've been a big supporter of theirs for a long time. They deserved to be heard, for sure.
