Press Release by Maple Metal Records for KORPIUS - 'Shades Of Black'

Canadian death metallers KORPIUS, hailing from Sherbrooke, QC will release their new album via Maple Metal Records entitled ‘Shades Of Black’ 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 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 sung at the same time is one of the distinctive trademarks of the band. KORPIUS show their versatility with a wide range of songs on this album, and that death metal can be musical while staying brutal and having that punch in your face. KORPIUS have carved a name for themselves as being a stellar force and a ‘must see Live act’ on the Canadian metal circuit over their short career, having already played with Despised Icon, Neuraxis, Krisiun, Belphagor, Cryptopsy 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 Orford, QC. The album was mixed and mastered by Mat Laperle at Red Dusk Studio just outside of Montreal, QC.

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

"CD RELEASE PARTY FOR ‘SHADES OF BLACK" - April 1st - Bar le Magog, Sherbrooke - KORPIUS + guests (Derelict)

KORPIUS lancera en avril son premier album 'Shades Of Black'

KORPIUS – « Shades Of Black »

Originaire de Sherbrooke, je suis toujours sensible à ce qui passe là-bas dans différents domaines, dont la musique. Or je viens de lire que le groupe death métal KORPIUS, lui aussi originaire de cette belle ville des Cantons de l’Est, lancera en avril son premier album, Shades Of Black, sur la compagnie Maple Metal Records. Le groupe a lui-même produit l’album, qui a été enregistré entre juillet et décembre 2010 au Studio Cheriborg d’Orford. Shades Of Black a ensuite été mixé et masterisé par Mat Laperle au Studio Red Dusk, près de Montréal. J’avais interviewé KORPIUS jadis, lorsque j’animais Métalloïdes sur les ondes de CFAK; je suis donc heureux de voir que le quatuor a persévéré, après toutes ces années. J’espère que ce disque lui permettra d’aller plus loin, plus haut dans le monde du métal. Félicitations, les gars. Par ailleurs, KORPIUS effectuera en février une mini-tournée baptisée Sherbrooke Assault 2011, avec Cold Insanity et My Fatality. Ils démoliront alors quelques villes du Québec; visitez le site de KORPIUS pour les détails.
