1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Corbian was founded in 2014 in Offenbach, Germany. Our music combines elements of Melodic Death Metal with Black and Thrash Metal influences.
2.Recently you have released your first album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
Thick. We have a dominant bass, brutal Guitars, brutal Drums and aggressive Vocals. It's a full slap in the face.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Our Lyrics focus on aggression, hate, anger and loss."The Darkness" is our take against war. But it's not only the lyrics that transport the message, you can feel it in our music, too.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Corbian'?
The name "Corbian" was coined by our old guitarist. It's actually a non-sense word, that just sounds cool - it has no deeper meaning.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We try to be as energetic as possible when playing live. It's great fun, because when you give 100%, the crowd will, too. Our best shows were in our home domain, like at the Hanauer Bürgerfest or in Frankfurt.
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
We always have shows planned. We'll be doing some around Frankfurt in the near future. As far as touring we're hoping to be able to hit the road through Germany and/or Europe this year.
Organisation for that has already begun.
7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?
We're not actively looking for a label, since we feel that you don't necesserly need a label these days anymore. We had offers, but none were attractive to us, yet.
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of melodic and extreme metal?
Feedback has been great. A lot of people from everywhere contacted us after the release and we're featured in a variation of Online Radios worldwide, it's amazing!
9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
With "Supremacy of Fire" we set a solid ground for our musical development. For the future we try to stay true to our Death and Black Metal roots, but we also try to write more challenging and slightly more complex stuff for your enjoyment.
10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Our biggest influence is definitely Amon Amarth. We have various other influences, to name a few: Black Sabbath, Slayer, Behemoth, Slipknot, Immortal,... We love those bands and still listen to them today.
11.What are some of your non musical interests?
We all share a mutual love for gaming, however we don't really have the time for great hobbies besides our commitment to music.
12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
We want to thank all our fans and listeners for their overwhelming support this far. It's been a real blast!
