Corrosion Streaming New Single “Prone To Dreams”

Corrosion – the multinational metal group formed by ex-Trivium drummer Nick Augusto and featuring vocalist/bassist Tommy Hjelm (Insense, Beaten To Death) and guitarists Christopher Cussell (Before The Mourning) and Martin Rygge (Insense, Beaten To Death) – will release a self-titled debut EP on March 27th via Mas-Kina Recordings.

This 3-track release was recorded by Jason Suecof at Audiohammer Studios and Phil Pluskota at Redbeard Studios, and was then mixed by Daniel Bergstrand at Dugout Studios in Sweden.

Today, Corrosion has teamed up with New Noise Magazine to premiere a second single off the EP. Check out “Prone To Dreams” below.

About this project Augusto stated: “It’s just four friends playing what makes us feel good and I really hope you all enjoy it. Really looking forward to making a full length and seeing everyone on tour soon. The idea for this project came together right after me and Trivium parted ways… All of us in Corrosion were friends already so it just felt right to start it up. I was an Insense fan, so going for a long shot them being all the way in Norway and I wanted to play in a band with them. We talked through emails and made it happen.

“We just wrote three songs and felt like it was a good introduction and a full length will come eventually. What you hear on this EP is just what we felt at the time and that’s what came out and it felt pretty damn good and clicked right away.”
