Norwegian blackened hardcore outfit Korrupt have just shared a new single from forthcoming sophomore album “Secret Sorrows” which is due to be released on Wednesday March 1st 2023 on their own Holler Records imprint label.
Titled “Hail Seitan”, the track is currently premiering over on Metal Injection, who commented that “Korrupt is back with a mix of dad jokes, crushing riffs, and some songs that would make Turbonegro smile thanks to their new record Secret Sorrows.”

About the track itself, the band state that “‘Hail Seitan’ is a respirator for scandi-rock, and Korrupt’s contribution to keep the genre alive,”, “It’s a Punk ‘n’ Roll anthem, in yo face, fuck-off-and-die kind of song”. Not the most academic of critiques, but a critique nonetheless of the morbid, bizarre and alienated production of meat. From upbeat melodic riffs, to blast beats and singalongs, if you’re not hyped by now, nothing will get you hyped.

Korrupt are a blackened hardcore band from Kristiansand in southern Norway (also home to Black Metal legends In The Woods and Carpathian Forest) whose sound is an amalgamation of Turbonegro, Comeback Kid, Kvelertak, and vocalist Marius’ previous band Social Suicide. After years of covid related silence, they are back with sophomore album “Secret Sorrows”, which will be released on digital and vinyl formats on Wednesday 1st March 2023.
The follow-up to their critically lauded debut album “Preachers and Creatures”, (which MetalSucks recommended to fans of Kvelertak “If post-punk n’ roll ala Kvelertak floats your boat you’ll be super into this track, but the band offers so much more…”), was produced and recorded by the band themselves (with drums recorded by Simen H. Pedersen) and mixed by Lars Bjerke Studio. It’s an album laden with melodic riffs and rock n’ roll beats, a funereal mix of black rock, Turbonegroesque riffs and some of the catchiest choruses to emerge from Norway since the heady days of Jahn Teigen.
