Korrosive: The Kaaos B-Sides 7" flexi

Nightrider Records


Noisy hardcore punk from Calfornia. Flexi limited to 250 copies, most of which are being sold on the band's Finnish tour with Appendix.

Our take: Two-song flexi from this California band released for their upcoming Finnish tour... apparently most of the copies are for the tour, so if you think you might want this scoop it now. I think this is the first time I'm hearing Korrosive, and they rip! It makes sense that they're touring Finland as they seem particularly inspired by the music of that country. These two tracks have the same combination of incredible catchiness and bulldozer heaviness that I associate with bands like Appendix, Rattus, and Riistetyt. It's nice to hear a d-beat band who are not focused solely on sheer brutality, but instead put a little effort into actually writing and arranging memorable songs, which Korrosive have certainly done here. Also, I don't know how they managed it, but this is one of the best-sounding flexis I've heard... loud, heavy, and powerful. Definitely the raw punk / d-beat release of the month for me!
