CORROSIVE CARCASS (Sweden) Inteview

1. Start off by introducing yourself and what is your role in your band?

My name is Christian Kanto and I play guitars in Corrosive Carcass, I mainly work as the contact person with fans and interviews like with you guys. Of course I also write some songs for the band too.

2. According to your biography it took awhile to get your first official album released, was it difficult to stay motivated for so long? How has the album been received by critics and fans?

From the beginning there were just some guys playing music together for fun, but the band became more serious sometime about 2007 when vocalist Jonathan Sjöblom joined the band and we recorded the first demo that unfortunately never got released in any physical format. 2009 I (Christian Kanto) joined the band after some member changes, I learned some old songs and we started to write new songs that was to become our next demo called ”Rot.In.Pieces”. That was our first official demo that was released in 2010 on CD-R and spread all over the world to death metal fans and record labels. Soon after Abyss Record contacted us to offer a record deal, so 2 years after the first official demo to our release of the debut album is not a long time.

3. Tell me a little about the other members of the band? And do any of you play in other bands?

We all share many intrests like old school death metal (obviously), retro video games and movies. They are a bunch of funny guys that enjoy just fooling around and having a good time. We all have done some recordings at home like solo projects but no one is playing in another band full time. Sometimes I play as an stand in musician for the black metal band Patronymicon.

4. Tell me a little about the releases you have and where they are available for purchase?

Our debut album ”Composition of Flesh” is available to order directly from us as both Cassette and CD. Or you can buy it from Abyss Records website and many other online stores. At the moment we are working on the last details for an LP of this album so all you fans that must have it on LP be patient! Its out very soon.

5. Are you a touring band or are you a studio only band? If you are a touring band list some of your best shows so far, or if you are a studio only band explain why that is?

Yes we play live, but we never done a tour. Best gig so far must be Getaway Rock Festival in Gävle, Sweden. A big metal festival with many good bands. Next gig will be with the kings of doom Candlemass and we really look forward to that.

6. Do you have any amusing stories from when you recorded your album or when you where on the road?

The time in the studio was kind of funny, our sound guy was drunk almost all the time. At least we got pretty much the sound we wanted considering the cirumstances with our funny and drunk sound engineer.

7. Name some of the bands that have influenced your playing style and then name some of the bands that people think influenced you but didn’t?

My personal biggest influence must be the 3 first albums from Death and for the Swedish death metal point of view it must be Dismember. I have read in some reviews of our album that some people think that we sound much like bands that I never even heard of.

8. What are some of your all time favorite albums?

Thats a hard question but I will try to name a few. This is my personal list and the 10 first albums that came up in my head.

Slayer – Seasons in the abyss Sepultura – Schizophrenia Testament – The new order Exodus – Bonded by blood Death – Leprosy Judas Priest – Painkiller Kreator – Pleasure to kill Morbid Angel – Blessed are the sick Candlemass – Nightfall Dismember – Like an everflowing stream

9. Name some of the all time worst or overated Metal albums in your opinion?

I think that Pantera is an overated band and it just got even more overated after Dimebags death. Also all that nu-metal shit and all the mainstream crap suck, I don’t even want to memorize there stupid names that has some kind of meaning to it.

10. Let everyone know what the band has planned for the future.

We recently recorded a 4 song EP that we plan to release probably this year, its going to be killer! We are also writing some new material for our second album. As I said earlier we will play with Candlemass and just try to find more gigs. Many people might think thats easy when living in Sweden but its not. Death metal is still underground and it always will be.

Thanks and cheers!
