Home / Biography / Corrupted


Japanese underground icons Corrupted create droning, sludgy, painfully gradual death/doom metallic and ambient music along the same lines — or should that be trenches? — simply because bands like Globe, Boris, and Sunn O))). Produced in Osaka, Japan, circa 1994, the reclusive group is certainly made up of vocalist Hevi, guitarist Talbot, keyboardist Takehito, bassist Jose, and drummer Chew up, and has released an inordinate variety of singles, EPs, divide discs, and full-length albums over time (including 1997’s Paso Poor, 1999’s Llenando de Gusanos, and 2004’s Se Hace por los Suenos Asesinos) — but often under their personal idiosyncratic terms. Included in these are keeping anything remotely resembling rock and roll stardom in utter contempt, mysteriously composing all their lyrics in Spanish, and refusing to actually take promo photos, so the just known pictures of the group are those snapped by followers at their concerts. Increasing this uncompromising status, Corrupted released a 70-minute little bit of music as their 4th long-player, 2005’s Un Mundo Frio.
