MAPLE METAL RECORDS Ink Deal with KORPIUS

Maple Metal Records has inked a deal with Sherbrooke, QC, (Canada) death metal band KORPIUS. MMR will release their debut full-length album worldwide on April 4th entitled ‘Shades Of Black’.

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 song self-titled EP, ‘Korpius’ in 2006, and the latter a 4 song 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 trademarks 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.

‘Shades Of Black’ was self-produced by KORPIUS. The album was recorded and engineered between July and December 2010 by Philippe d’Astous at Cheriborg Studio in picturesque Orford, QC. The album was mixed and mastered by Mat Laperle at Red Dusk Studio, just outside of Montreal, Canada.

Track listing for ‘Shades Of Black’: 1. Shades of Black 2. On the Edge 3. Fury 4. Stigmatized 5. Awaking Terror 6. Disillusion 7. At the point of Death 8. Six Feet Deep 9. The Finale Charge

KORPIUS will co-headline the Sherbrooke Assault mini-tour of Quebec with My Fatality, Cold Insanity plus 1 more, in February, where they will feature new material off their upcoming album.

‘Awaking Terror’ has been selected for the first official Video to be directed by Chad Archibald of Black Fawn Films (Massive Slavery, Baptized In Blood, Blue Felix), and will coincide with the release of this album.

"In these dark times when the future of humanity seems to be put in danger by individualistic and corrupt leaders, four musicians from Canada work on a musical plan aiming to reach the ranks of opposition, already well established in the middle of extreme metal. Like a wakeup call, their goal is to alert and open the eyes of our society, to reveal the sad and brutal reality, often unseen or denied by man. It's under this shadow of complete disillusion towards our civilization that MASSIVE SLAVERY emerge from collective ignorance, in order to defend and promote an engaged movement of resistance, fighting against the manipulators of our system". "Humanity's Last Hope" is taken from their concept album 'Global Enslavement'. This musical tour de force was released by Maple Metal Records in 2010 and produced by Yannick St-Amand (Despised Icon, Beneath the Massacre and Neuraxis). MASSIVE SLAVERY are Jon 'the Prof' St-Pierre (vocals), Joel St-Amant (guitars), Marc-Andre Barrette (bass) and P-A Mercier (drums). 'Global Enslavement' is an album that delivers the quintessential death metal experience. Bravo! - Brave Words (& Bloody Knuckles)

MASSIVE SLAVERY - Global Enslavement - "THE BREAKTHROUGH METAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR!" - Lords Of Metal (nl)

ConcreteWeb.be For a bands first album, this is a serious piece of art on all levels. From musicianship to production level, no other “new band” can compete with this. Its brutal, fast and in some way the riffs and play style reminds me of Fear Factory. This album is just awesome in every way and this is a great band producing music that everyone can enjoy.

Le Metal Store: 1843 Ontario Est., Montreal, QC Debut album from this band from Rouyn. Featuring ex-ARCHONS, PAROXYSM etc. This debut album is stunning, musically and production-wise. If you like what you've heard on the debut ARCHONS album, this should suit you just fine as I find it even more elaborate... Technical, brutal and fast, this band also adds up a bit of melody and progressive elements... EXCELLENT!....
