New year, new tricks

Uusi vuosi, uudet kujeet

Vuosi 2015 oli Corpsetille muutosten aikaa. Huutajamme Murtonen lähti omille teilleen vuoden 2014 lopulla ja bändi jäi ilman vokalistia. Hetken aikaa kiroiltuamme päätimme kuitenkin jatkaa sävellystyötä vanhaan malliin ja etsiä korvaajaa kaikessa rauhassa. Siinähän sitä sitten runnottiin uusia ralleja kasaan reenikämpällä. Jossain kohtaa kitaristi Heikkalalle tuli mieleen, että perkele, Haapsamon Antin ja Mors Subitan tiet olivat eronneet tovin aikaa sitten. Siitähän se idea sitten lähti. Hape oli alustavien tiedustelujen jälkeen kiinnostunut hommasta ja alkoi pikkuhiljaa ottaa vanhoja biisejä haltuun. Ensimmäiset reenit Hapen kanssa pidettiin uudenvuoden aattona ja samalla tietenni saunottiin ja katottiin että mites ne kuuluisat kemiat toimii. Ei tullu mustia silmiä eikä mustelmia muutenkaan, joten päättelimme yhdessä tuumin että toimiihan ne. Kyllä pohjosen miehet ossaa!

Corpset löysi etsimänsä. Uusi vokalistimme on Antti Haapsamo.

Hape tässä moi!

Sain kunnian liittyä Corpsetin miehistöön ja olen tästä hyvin ylpeä. Odottelen mielenkiinnolla tulevia aikoja eli reenejä, uusien biisien tekoa, keikkoja sekä uusien että vanhojen naamojen tapaamisia tämän terveellisen toiminnan parissa. Hyvää alkanutta vuotta ja pitäkää sarvet pystyssä!

Antti “Hape” Haapsamo


In 2015 Corpset went through some changes. Our vocalist Murtonen left the band late 2014 and after some swearing and pondering we decided to go on. New tunes were composed just like we have always done and we took our time to find a new vocalist. At some point guitarist Heikkala got an idea to ask Antti Haapsamo if he would be interested in joining Corpset as he had left Mors Subita a bit earlier. The first rehearsals took place at New Years Eve not to forget some serious sauna afterparty and everything clicked! Men from North truly know how to do it!

Corpset found what they were looking for. Our new vocalist is Antti Haapsamo.

Greetings!

I am honored to be part of Corpset’s new lineup. With great interest I am looking for upcoming rehearsals, writing new songs, gigs as well as meeting new and old friends within this healthy activity called being in a band. Happy New Year 2016 and keep the horns up!

“No Rest” in media

Posted: 16/10/2013 in Uncategorized

Corpset has been covered in Finland’s premiere metal magazine Inferno as well as Sue and Kaaoszine. Radio X3M also made an interview. Quite a few reviews have popped in both from Finland and abroad:

“Muutama ensipyöräytys sujahtaa lähinnä biisien rakenteita ja riffejä ihmetellessä, mutta lopulta alta löytyi omaperäinen, raivokas ja varsin mielenkiintoinenkin tapaus.” Inferno 3.5/5

“Corpsetin toinen albumi “No Rest” on rankka mutta toimiva kokonaisuus, joka takaa niskajumit loppuvuodeksi! Biiseistä löytyy tiettyä särmää, joka tekee jokaisesta kappaleesta yksilöllisen ja mahtavan.” Kaaoszine 9/10

“No Restillä kuullaan varsin ruhjovaotteista death- ja thrash-metallin yhdistelmää, eivätkä miekkoset kaihda melodisempienkaan polkujen tallaamista, kuten muutamat näppärät kitarailkamoinnit osoittavat.” Imperiumi 7/10

“Heti toisena soiva Piss On My Grave tyhjentää eturessun rullaavalla raivollaan, jossa lepää sellaista ilkeyttä, joka on totuttu yhdistämään kaikkein äärimmäisimpiin deathin muotoihin. Kitaroiden viiltelyssä on kuitenkin myös tuhti annos melodisuutta ja juuri tuo yhdistelmä tekee Corpsetin musiikista niin ainutlaatuista.” Desibeli.net 3/5

“Levyn puolivälissä yhtye heittää kehiin uransa kunnianhimoisimman tuotoksen, yli yhdeksänminuuttisen Prophet’s Opiaten, joka monimuotoisuudessaan ja tunnelmallisuudessaan vastaa mainiosti asettamaansa haasteeseen. Biisi vie lähes neljäsosan koko albumista, mutta on kaiken tilan ja ajan arvoinen.” Sue 8/10

“Thrash / Death Metal have aged and gone modern, but these guys’ material has what it takes to keep a certain balance.” Metal Temple 6/10

“Sporting a fresh, crisp and modern style of death metal Corpset are catchy and belligerent and their superb song craft will keep your head banging long into the album!” Destructive Music

“And for those who like the genre, they deliver an album worth celebrating.” Lords of Metal

“This is meat and potatoes death metal, but now with strong melodic and harmonic nuances- another Finnish band to watch.” Eternal Terror

“Indeed, there’s some good grooving, melodic Thrash / Death shit on “Ruins”, which partly reminds me of the times when this already worn-out and dead Gothenburg-ish melo Death was a huge thing in the whole world. However, for CORPSET’s sheer advantage it needs to be said that their sound is way harsher and heavier than most of these Gothenburg phenomenon acts, plus in addition to that, CORPSET have at least tried to create something that would separate them from the rest of the pack.” Voices from the Dark Side

“I like thrash metal that really thrashes you about like there’s no tomorrow. This is the kind of thrash that made Kreator’s “Pleasure To Kill” so great. Add to it a touch of death metal and you got an album that will twist and turn your intestines like there’s no tomorrow.” Battle Helm

“‘Lord Of The Flies’ is perhaps the album’s best showcasing of excellent riff work, majestic and brutal all at once, the sound nearing the Teutonic greatness of KREATOR at times, but always with that melody just at the edges of it all, and always with the death metal never far out of reach.” Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles 6.5/10

Corpset is watching you

Posted: 22/08/2013 in News

The ever seeing eye of Corpset is watching you with No chance to Rest

Finnish death-thrash metal band Corpset is about to release their 2nd album in September 2013. It is a follow up to their acclaimed debut “Ruins” which was released in 2010.

Already in their first album the band tastefully combined modern elements with more old school underground sounds and finished the package with some serious aggression and twisted melodies. Now with the second album “No Rest” the band sounds even tighter after cutting out all the slack. Finland’s leading metal magazine Inferno described the album as “a very unique, aggressive and interesting piece of music which might require quite a few spins at first to sink in while pondering the structures and riffs.”

”No Rest” was recorded by Jussi Kulomaa at MSTR-studios, Tampere during the year 2012. The album has nine tracks and total running time of 40 minutes. It is going to be released by finnish independent record label Violent Journey Records.

“No Rest”, the new video from the Finnish death-thrash metal band CORPSET, can be seen below. The song is the title track of the group’s second album, which will be released in September 20th via Violent Journey Records. The clip was directed by Matti Kuusniemi of the Findie moviegroup Trash Video. The fast-paced and unique video gives viewers a glimpse of the band’s live energy and aggression, but also serves as a strong statement against information flood of the modern society and depicts how we are becoming the slaves of technology.

Already in their first album “Ruins” (2011), the band tastefully combined modern elements with more old-school underground sounds and finished the package with some serious aggression and twisted melodies. Now with the second album, “No Rest”, the band sounds even tighter after cutting out all the slack.
