Korpse is a slamming brutal death metal band from The Netherlands founded by drummer Marten van Kruijssen (Houwitser, session-Beheaded, Cliteater). Together with Sven (Visionary666) as vocalist, Mart Wijnholds (DrDoom, Teethgrinder) on bass and Floor van Kuijk (Carnifloor, Fermented Masturbation) on guitar, Korpse unleashed their reign of terror in August 2013.
In late 2013 Korpse started spreading their debut album 'Korpse' in digital format on the internet. The self titled debut immediately had it's impact and got Korpse on the map. Korpse's first shows got booked all over Europe and the album got the attention of a lot of record labels. With the controversial cover artwork of Bahrull Marta in hands, Korpse teamed up with Morbid Generation Record to release the debut in physical format on 24th of March 2014.
Within the first year of Korpse's existence, stages where shared with bands like Ingested, Kraanium, Misery Index, Epicardiectomy, Soils of Faith, Ingested, Benighted, Acranius, Katalepsy, Vomitous, Vulvectomy and many more. Korpse's reputation grew with every stage crushed, and every crowd annihilated. In August 2014 a new guitarist joined the band. Floor van Kuijk took over the guitar duties from Andy, and got the band ready for the mayor events that are scheduled for the coming year. These include supporting Devourment on Essen Deathfeast, playing at Nice To Eat You Deathfest in Czech Republic, and recording the second Korpse Album.
Korpse distinguishes itself by playing as brutal metal music as it's gonna get, without (over)using modern technologies, which infects most of the genre's music. That ultimate raw and dirty sound created by real instruments and played by actual musicians is what Korpse stands for. Immensely heavy slam breakdowns combined with grinding speed and aggression are the result of Korpse's no nonsense approach on the slamming death genre. Because of their unique sound, approach and the fact that all band members have plenty of (touring) experience playing all over Europe, Korpse guarantees a live show at least as intense and brutal as their self titled album 'Korpse'.
Korpse will not rest until everyone shares their vision of brutality and laid waste upon every Deathfest on this planet!
