Updated: Jan 5, 2019
Crushing riffs, brutal rhythms and throat shredding vocals, many of the trademarks that we’ve come to expect from Sweden’s Corroded and on new album ‘Bitter’, they don’t let us down!
Never a band afraid to summon the power of the riff, Sweden’s Corroded are back with an album packed full of corrosive, anthemic modern metal. From the punishing first single ‘Cross’ to all out-riff frenzy of ‘War’, this is Corroded at their most ferocious and powerful!
Swedish hard rock band CORRODED, which tops Swedish music lists and whose music is loved by fans all over the world is finally back with their second album release on Despotz Records (the fifth of the band).
Following the band's latest album release "Defcon Zero" they’ve played across Europe on two sold out tours along with PAIN and their own headlining tour. The band has performed at festivals such as Sabaton Open Air, Skogsröjet and Sweden Rock Festival where they went down in history at the 4 Sound Stage with the largest crowd. In 2019 the band will be launching a new tour of Europe to present its new album!
Those who have seen Corroded live have witnessed the strong brotherhood that ties the members together. The band itself says that they’re like brothers in a somewhat dysfunctional family, and as a well-oiled machinery they work together towards their goal - to take over the world.
"It's what has gotten us where we are today - we never give up - despite setbacks that has hit us like a hard fist in the face we get up and use that as inspiration to create new music. Our background is in the working class which is reflected in our music. The fact that we’ve had to struggled with various setbacks to get where we are today has given us thicker skin and shines through in our music.”- Jens
Now the band is back with its fifth studio album and the sounds is angrier, broader and darker than the CORRODED we are used to. The band has been influenced by a wider variety of music, but if you've heard CORRODED before, you'll still recognize the hard riffs, melodic parts and Jens’ raw and brutal vocals that like an elemental power penetrates through all the barriers.
"We want the listener to feel like the music hits them hard in the chest, but at the same time captures them" explains Thomas.
"The album title ‘Bitter’ comes from observing how the social climate is right now around the world. Wherever we look we see so much anger, the world is heartless and cold. Everyone’s so dissatisfied and thinks that everyone else’s life is so much better than theirs, and if something goes wrong it’s always someone else to blame. As a result of this all power hungry leaders in this world thrives on the dissatisfaction of the people and gain power that way. So we see the world as bitter and it has inspired both the lyrics and the music of the upcoming album! "- Jens (singer)
It's brutal, honest, melodic but also edgy. It's CORRODED and it's BITTER!
