Formed in 2014, Korpsesoturi is a one-man death metal band located in Kouvola (Finland) who burst onto the scene in 2017 with demo tracks that eventually made their way onto a limited cassette via Caco-Daemon Records and CD via Death In Pieces Records. Initial recordings were downright primitive and noxious, an ode to early ‘90s brutality while capturing the classic Finnish sound in all its colossal ugliness and filth. With their first full length, Malus Corpus, Korpsesoturi has polished things up a bit, but still deliver a massive slab of barbaric death metal, lurching and writhing in spastic convulsions as it alternates between frenzied high-speed pummel and some seriously foul and fearsome downtuned riffage, along with vocals that roar from impossible depths. Mastered by Zack Ohren of Castle Ultimate Studios (Immolation, Suffocation) with cover art and design by Endless Vast Mystrium, packaged in 6 panel digipak. For fans of Grave, Undergang, Convulse
Pre-order for digital and CD includes bonus track.
" an absolute rampage, delivering unbridled ferocity coupled with edge-of-your-seat dynamism. The music features searing waves of wild, incendiary riffing as well as cold-blooded, drilling viciousness, bursts of hyperspeed jabbing along with diseased seething tones, and macabre fanfares laced with spectral soloing. You’ll even encounter soaring, sweeping waves of dark-edged magnificence." No Clean Singing

Holy hell this album is a banger. I was looking up local chiropractors by the middle of song 2. If this isn't on your EOTY list this year, you should be prosecuted under the Geneva Convention for crimes against humanity. Neck snapping riffs, killer songwriting, and just the right production. Death metal done right. navybsn
