Corrupted - various tracks

Since the other blog I posted this on is deader than dead it's time for a re-post here.

Formed in 1994 in Osaka, Japan, Corrupted play some absolutely skull crushing sludge/doom with some of the best growled vocals ever (mostly done in Spanish!) and in my opinion are one of the forerunners of the genre. over the years they have incorporated more Ambient leanings but still bring the heavy sludge/doom.

The tracks compiled here are as follows...

1.Inactive (split LP w/ Noothgrush)
2.Reference (split 7" w/ Enemy Soil)
3.Nieve (Twin Threat to your Sanity double 7")
4.Nieve Segundo (split 7" kind buds pic disc w/Phobia)
5.Paso Inferior( 2002 LP version I left out the B side which was the ambient half of the song)
6.Empty(split 7" with Cripple Bastards)

this is just a small sample of their extensive back catalog. Visit their website here.
Buy records here, here, and here. and I'm sure if you do an individual search for a particular record you can find something in a distro or else ebay would be your best bet since most releases are way out of print.

Here are some photos I took of them in November of 2008 when they completely blew me away in Los Angeles (click on them to see full size)
