Interviews: Korrosive

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

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

Rad: It was a discussion that I had with my mates from years back on how I wanted a band name that would kind of describe the music or the expectation of what you can hear in the word itself. So we were like “corrosive?”…. “Korrosive!” 

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Jack: I had a significant thrash phase when I was 16, and having the opportunity to play blisteringly fast music is a blessing.

Carlos: Thrash and punk were big things for me back in late elementary school and throughout high school. Aside from discovering many other bands and genres. Thrash really stood out for me. I've always loved playing fast and loud. 

Derek: It all started with my introduction to Metallica. Soon after that, I knew what Thrash was. Once I got deeper into the genre, I discovered it was what I wanted to play.

Kaveh: Thrash was the churning cauldron out of which most extreme metal genres were born, so what's not to like?

Rad: I actually do not know. All I know is, once I started listening to thrash, I could not imagine myself doing anything else.

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

Rad: Not really on my end. But Kaveh and Jack are in Protokult so they know each other, and in addition, Carlos and Kaveh were also in Valkyrie’s Cry back in the day.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Carlos: Darkthrone, Running Wild, Aion (JPN), Overkill, Cirith Ungol, Sex Machineguns, ADX, Inepsy, Coroner, Mercyful Fate, The Lord Weird Slough Feg. 

Derek: In Thrash, Exodus. Overall, Metallica.

Jack: Can't pick one, but the top three are Acid Bath, Mr. Bungle, and Black Sabbath 

Rad: Sodom 

Kaveh: Just one? I'd pick Slayer then

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Kaveh: I don't compose in this band but I like to think the drumming I bring to these songs is a mix of Dave Lombardo and Pete Sandoval

Jack: Grindcore and early death metal bands have a very thrashy approach. We don't write grind or death metal, but their influence supports our sound of extreme thrash.

Carlos: Lyric-wise, 80s action, sci-fi and war films, chilled red wine and hash trips, listening to a random playlist of albums, current events, books on historical military warfare, violent comics, Bill Hicks

Derek: I'm inspired by a lot of the Classic Thrash and Death Metal styles. It influenced everything I wrote on the album.

Rad: No process in particular that I can pinpoint. It’s mostly what I see or observe around me. It’s hard to explain inspiration because that can come from anywhere.

6. Where was your last gig?

Rad: By the time this interview is up, our last show will have been opening for Incite at Sneaky Dee’s!

7. Where would you like to act?

Derek: I'll play anywhere, but the top two would be in Athens, and Lisbon. Biggest cities in my ancestral homelands.

Jack: Play shows in the US and Europe, of course!

Carlos: Anywhere! But if i had to choose, it would definitely be Mexico and South America, Europe and Asia, Australia and New Zealand, US, and the rest of Canada, and then do it all over again!

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Jack: Killing from Denmark and Mortal Vision from Ukraine.

Derek: Exodus, Kreator, Sodom, Destruction, Municipal Waste, Warbringer, Napalm Death, Death Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Sacred Reich, Testament, etc. 

Carlos: Bunker 66, Killing, Pripjat, Diabolical Night, Just got into Nekrofilth thanks to Rad, Vader, Cruel Force, Division Speed, Destroyer 666, Fugitive, Iron Voltage, Heathen, Deathhammer, Overkill, Stälker, Vio-Lence.

9. Whom not?

Rad: We can’t think of anyone in particular.

10. Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?

Kaveh: Not so much, since I have been doing this for a while... I have a drumming warm-up routine which helps as well. For beginners, I'd say just practice and know your songs really well. That's where true confidence onstage comes from.

Rad: I always get anxious before a show. Regardless of size. Could be 20 people or it could be a thousand. Doesn’t matter. I get nervous. Each person has a way to overcome that and as a vocalist, I yak. Once I’m done, I’m golden.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Jack: Underground classics like Necrovore, Poison from Germany, Sarcofago, Vulcano, Hellhammer, Merciless, Grotesque, Morbid, Messiah, Protector, and Siege. Boundary-pushing music.

Derek: AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Metallica, and Iron Maiden definitely were the most influential in my early years

Carlos: Sodom, Mercyful Fate, Toxic Holocaust, Rammer, BFG's, Overkill, Hermetica, Hellhammer, Krisiun.

Kaveh: Playing with older bands like Voivod and Exciter and seeing them rock out so hard at their age was truly inspiring.

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

Kaveh: Used drumsticks signed... I guess it's not that weird, but I'm still getting used to it!

Jack: Nothing… yet.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Rad: We have fans?

Carlos: They're truly something amazing. I always look forward to them at every show, we're nothing without them.

Kaveh: They're the greatest! Always down to mosh and great to hang out with too!

Jack: Supportive, enthusiastic, and energetic.

Derek: Love them. Nobody is anything without their fans. We owe it all to them. 

14. What do you think of our site?

Rad: The site is phenomenal. It’s very informative and has everything you need. What I particularly liked was the “countries” section. Discovering music from other countries is always a treat.

15. Something to add?

Rad: Nothing except thank you for this opportunity and we appreciate the time you’ve taken to get to know Korrosive.
