Consisting of members from Social Suicide and a slew of other bands on the Norwegian underground scene, these four guys finally find their ultimate form on this album. Recorded and mixed by Turbonegro and Silver’s Tommy Akerholdt, Korrupt’s Preachers and Creatures comes off as the synthesis of previous Fysisk Format albums like Haust’s Ride the Relapse (2008) and The Good the Bad and the Zugly’s Hadeland Hardcore (2015).
Originating from the “Bible belt”-part of Norway, all four members of Korrupt have broken away from their background in off-mainstream charismatic Christianity. -The album was never meant to be a concept album, but in retrospect it appears as a portraiture of someone young, angry and fed up with the looming hand of organized religion, singer and lyricist Marius Myhren explains.
The lyrics also orbit more universal themes like anxiety, depression, evil and friendship. All in all, the album can be read as summoning of personal authority, of building resistance and finding your own path in a world of confusion, greed and destructive propaganda. Preachers and Creatures is definitely the kind of album where you should listen with the lyric sheet laid out in front of you.
In Korrupt, Fysisk Format see the unusual combination of uncompromising political attitude and raw melodic power. Preachers and Creatures is the perfect cure for a sedated generation that need to walk up and shape the future.
Preachers and Creatures was produced by Marius and Esteban from Korrupt alongside Tommy Akerholt and mastered by Hugo Alvarstein. The album will manifest on digital formats as well as on vinyl. The vinyl will come in a triple-pantone printed sleeve and innersleeve with artwork by Basque-come-Norwegian artist Lara of Subterraean Prints.
