Lansing, Michigan-based death metallers Recorruptor recently announced their sophomore album, The Funeral Corridor, which is set for release on Friday, August 21st. The Funeral Corridor was recorded and mixed at Broken Monolith Studios and mastered by Rivers of Nihil guitarist Brody Uttley.
Formed in 2013, the group has spent a number of years honing their craft playing live shows as well as releasing their debut album Bloodmoon in 2017. Fast-forward to 2020, and Recorruptor is ready to unleash an eclectic and impressive death metal feast on The Funeral Corridor that is guaranteed to thrill fans of the genre.
The Funeral Corridor is the clear work of musicians who eat, sleep and breathe death metal and keenly draw inspiration from both early legendary acts and highly praised modern acts as well. The end result makes for a multi-faceted listening experience with a bit of something for everyone combined with complex and mature songwriting throughout all nine tracks on the album.
The Funeral Corridor is strongly recommended for fans of bands the group cites as influences which include Cattle Decapitation, Cannibal Corpse, Aborted, The Black Dahlia Murder, Immolation, and Emperor.
The band has partnered with Metal Injection to premiere their 2nd single from The Funeral Corridor, “Souls of Limbo”.

Metal Injection comments on the launch of “Souls of Limbo”
“Onto the meat and potatoes of this though, we are looking at a death metal band willing to bend the sound into whatever is needed at the time. This is a track full of hard hitting old school death metal breaks akin to that of the more mid tempo style Cannibal Corpse. Vocalist Clint A. Franklin even keeps true to this where it works for him, but has a tendency to include higher screams and more gutteral growls in where it works as well. For instance, if you cut to 2:04 in “Souls of Limbo”, this is where the song picks up to double speed, entering an almost grindcore like state. From here, if you look out your window on the left, you’ll notice guitarists Seth Earl and Dustin Cook shredding away.”
