Corrupted are a Japanese doom/sludge metal band. They are known for avoiding interviews and publicity.[1] They have recorded several albums, including split albums with other artists and perform regularly in Japan and abroad.[2]

Musical style[edit]

They were described by JB Roe of Grooveshark as "some of the heaviest, gloomiest doom/sludge around, distinctly cacophonous, layering feedback pulverizing progressions into a distinctly cacophonous rumble."[3] However, some songs feature long acoustic sections, spoken-word interludes, and unconventional instruments. An example of the latter can be found on their 2005 album El mundo frio, which is a 72-minute song with extensive sections of harp. Iann Robinson wrote on Nonelouder.com, "Right when you think you can peg Corrupted as an all Doom band they release a lush acoustic set within their bleak musical landscape."[1]

They mainly sing in Spanish, with some songs containing sections in Japanese or English.

In 2009, Terrorizer chose Corrupted's 1997 album Paso inferior as the seventeenth-best sludge album. They wrote at the time,

In 2002, the band released a statement about interviews:
