Korrosiah hails from the south of France and was put together in 2004 by Martin. The Rehearsal Room Demo came out in 2006 with four tracks. In the meantime, guitarist Chris left and rejoined and the band lost drummer Lionel. The band’s next output came out in 2010 in the form of a full-length issued through Pervade Productions.
KORROSIAH - CREEPY FEELINGS - PERVADE
The band’s name doesn’t say much, but the album title does. Except, it is misleading. Creepy Feelings is not shock rock, horror, gore or even black metal. This French band is techno thrash that ages well with each listen.
Upon first listen, these Frenchmen seem a little convoluted and disoriented. The music seems adrift amidst a sea of riffs. However, it gets better with more spins. There are examples of tracks on this disc where the quartet go from acoustic strumming to technical thrash and to Strapping young Lad clean vocals (Venom), but the majority of the album plays like a decent mix of Death (the band’s biggest influence), old Testament and Coroner. The guitarist could solo with precision and warmth but is largely in check. The vocals are scratchy for the most part, the music engineered well and the variety fodder for endurance. A progressive element or two is clearly there, yet thrash fans won’t turn away disappointed should they be on the technical side of the fence. - Anna Tergel
