Defiled Interview



– Hey lads, hope everything is great at your end!


Happy New Year to all! We’ve just been so busy to prepare for the upcoming tour.
But we’re all fine !!



– You guys are embarking on a tour of South Asia – hitting up Bangladesh, Nepal and India. What are you expecting?


Very very excited our first tour for South Asia !!
We’re expecting to meet diehard metalheads at the show.
Let’s share a great time with us!



– You play at Metal Barbarism II on the 14th of January, how did you get in touch with Primitive Invocation for the gig?


Underground metal scene is a small world and we have many common friends. So it’s very easy for having a connection.



– It seems that Defiled has always enjoyed touring all sorts of places.. you played in North Korea in 1997, what was that like?


You got wrong information ! We have played in South Korea in 1997 and not in North Korea yet. Someday we’ll try to head to North Korea as well.
We believe metal music is borderless. Yes, Korea has a quite good underground metal scene.

– We had to wait 8 years for a new Defiled record, between “Divination” and “In Crisis” – when can we expect another new Defiled release?


Very good question ! Our new album “Towards Inevitable Ruin” will be coming soon !!



– Yusuke is currently the only remaining original member. Is it safe to say he does most of the songwriting or do other members have their intake as well?


I write all music for Defiled. Then I do arrangements with my band mates because Defiled is a real band.



– Are any of the band members involved in any side projects?


All of us concentrate for Defiled only. We’re not interested in doing side projects.



– It can be said that the society of Japan is different from other places – where does the seed of anger come from which spawned bands like yourself?


We just play music for a fun. That’s all. As for our lyrics, we deal with dark subjects due to consistency with our music.



– Any bands from Metal Barbarism II that you are looking forward to playing with?


We’re looking forwards to share stages with all of bands at Metal Barbarism !!!
All of them play true metal with true heart! That’s very important !



– Thanks for your time! Hope you have a great tour.


Thanks for the interview. We’re very looking forwards to play in your country!
See you soon, sisters and brothers in Asian metal!!

Corrupted – El Dios queja (1995) [Classic Reviews]

Corrupted – El Dios queja (1995)

Japan has come to be associated with the perverse. Be it Unit 731 or censored rape themed pornography, Japan will always have something worth mentioning when it comes to the macabre. One of these sick treasures is Corrupted. An infamous name in doom metal circles, they are famous for extremely long, minimalistic compositions and singing in Spanish despite being Japanese. However the Corrupted you will read about in this interview is a band in its infancy. Barely a year into their existence, they released a few EPs in 1995. This is probably their second release. A tribal sort of beat slowly fades in before we hear that characteristic drone shriek which signals the commencement of riffs, and Corrputed begin on a maddening attack of hate which can apparently not be expressed in Japanese. “Riffs” would actually be an inaccurate description by thrash standards, but not by mine. ‘Hay que joderse’ loosely translates to ‘fuck it all’, so bonus points for that. Uninhibitedly primitive, you don’t need to understand Spanish to know they’re angry. The second track, ‘Renir a Existencia’ (‘scold existence’) features one of the best drumming performances in doom, providing an excellent backbone to the guitars. The vocal performance is exceptional as well. Sisto (‘I stand’) is the longest track on the EP, and does not disappoint. Tracks like this make Corrupted, Corrupted. Progressive yet primitive, horrifically minimalistic and entrancing, Corrupted create a gloom that cannot be ignored. With each repetition a sort of clarity is achieved, a very easy track to immerse yourself in. Towards the end however, the riffs change to a quasi-black metal style, leaving me with the depressive feel of the earlier riffs, both of the same track and the previous ones and a new feeling of emptiness. The track itself reminds me of their debut full length, ‘Paso Inferior’. Even at this early stage Corrupted were dedicating themselves to sounding how they wanted to and not how people wanted them to. A dedication to an extreme is apparent, and this release provides a worthwhile experience for those that prefer their metal grimy.
