Interviews: Corruption Rising


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Metal band, Corruption Rising, from Australia. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Just like that really. We were trying to think of something that fitted the times.. the world, being sort of corrupt, with it seemingly getting worse and rising. The words really just fit together to sound strong and like a good fit for us.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Given that we're both big fans of metal and hard rock, it was a no brainer. It's also our forte when it comes to musicianship.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Yeah, we have been working together for the same company for just over 5 years now. Always talked about collaborating together, now here we are!

4. Each band member favourite band?

Andrew - my favourite band right now is Mastadon. Mark - tough one... for all time sake, gotta say Metallica. Right now though.. Trivium would have to be at the top of the list.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

I suppose what inspires us most is that when you're writing a riff or have an idea in your head, really going with the flow and letting the creativity rise to the surface and harnessing the energy that it provides.. makes for really good song composure and lyrical concepts.

6. Where was your last gig?

Given that we formed this group during the COVID lockdown here in VIC, AU.. we haven't been able to yet. Also, as we are still just a two piece and writing/producing all our work on our own, we would really need to figure out a solid plan to start gigging; with instrument allocation, possibly needing backing tracks live, maybe another member or two for live gig. Plan is to get there one day though, for sure!

7. Where would you like to act?

Melbourne. We would love to tour our home city first and take over all of the beloved venues we have here, then branch out interstate. From there, however far we could take it!

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Some of the bigger names from AU in the Metal scene; Frankenbok, Harlott, 4ARM, In Malice's Wake. It would be awesome to open for some of these bands. 

9. Whom not?

Hard question. No pop bands haha!

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Not really, I've been in a couple of bands before and have done the gigging scene a fair bit, so I'm mostly ok with it. When anxiety has slightly sparked up, best advice is to not think too much and just harness that for your performance on stage,.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Andrew - Nirvana, Soundgarden, Metallica & Rage Against of the machine. Mark - Metallica, Slayer, Lamb of God, Arch Enemy, Trivium.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

On socials... we recently had someone randomly ask us to let them produce for us.... and they were a pop/hip-hop artist. Seem to get these requests alot, but nothing super weird has happened...yet. early days still haha.

13. What do you think of your fans?

The heaviness and the melody. We try to make every song so damn heavy & powerful, whilst still being catchy and having real groove to it. Song structure has been key to our small level of success so far.

14. What do you think of our site?

Love it, love the content; which is why we would love our band to be featured on it!

15. Something add?

Thanks, heaps for the opportunity!
