KORPIUS has released their debut full-length album entitled ‘Shades Of Black’ worldwide through MAPLE METAL RECORDS (Toronto/Canada) on April 4th .
KORPIUS was formed in 2003 by guitarists Philippe d’Astous and Maxime Berriault, who share the lead vocal duties, and are rounded out by Félix Lampron-Dandonneau on bass and Paul Côté-Bérard on drums. KORPIUS have released 2 EPs in the past: a 6 songs self-titled EP, ‘Korpius’ in 2006, and the latter a 4 songs EP entitled ‘Apocalyptic Vision’ was released by Cryogenic Records in 2007.
This quartet plays a blackened style of death metal, combining modern blast-beat brutality, progressive elements, epic riffs and melodic solos, to produce a fresh sound. The mix of guttural and high-pitched vocals at the same time is one of the distinctive landmarks of the band.
KORPIUS have also carved a name for themselves as being a stellar force and a ‘must see Live act’ on the Quebec metal circuit over their short career, having already played with Despised Icon, Neuraxis, Krisiun, Belphagor, and many more.
KORPIUS will be touring extensively through out the year so be sure to check the website often for a date in a city near you.
