Friday, what do you do on a day like this, for those of you who do not want to spend the evening on the couch at home with a little "Fredagsmys (Cosy Friday)" (Swedish Friday tradition), you could always get out for some adventure. One tip is that you make a visit to the "Globe Arenas" and Annexet here in Stockholm and visit "Rocktoberfest"
Here they are mixing rock (Corroded, Sherlock Brothers and Self Deception) with five star street food and some real quality beer! Stureplansgruppen Arena Catering and Stockholm Globe Arenas welcomes you to a brand new variant of the German classic Oktoberfest. Together with the Chef of the Year (1999), Karl Ljung and master brewer John Spendrup from Gotland Brewery, they create a tasteful feast with great live entertainment.
One of the bands that is playing there is Corroded, who are mixing a tour start with a release party for their brand new record "X Years of Anger".
Corroded officially took shape in 2004 after a couple of jam sessions. It was soon clear that the path of the band would be in the heritage of the heavy rock acts of the 70 ́s with additional layers of a more modern sound.
Three Cd ́s were recorded in the first struggling years as an unsigned act:
2005 - Heart of the Machine
2007 - Sessions ward-22
2007 - III
Numerous great reviews were published in magazines and webzines like German legendary banger magazine Metal Hammer. Due to the attention the band was soon booked for a Sweden Rock Festival apperance. and after their first UK tour - 2008 they were signed to Ninetone Records Corroded, went quickly from unknown to household in Sweden, when national TV station TV4 handpicked their de- but-single “Time and Again” to accompany the promotion of their blockbuster show “Expedition Robinson” internationally known as “Survivor”.
The band has been touring immensely in their homeland , hitting all important clubs and festivals in Sweden Such as Debaser ,Sticky Fingers , KB , Sweden Rock Festival, Metaltown, Getaway Rock Festival , Rockstad Falun and Sonisphere Pre Party. Corroded also supported Avenged Sevenfold on their tour through the Nordic Countries in the fall of 2010 and Stone Sour in Sthlm 2012.
The band is deep within the same influences as before with the heavy rock acts of the 70:s,80 ́s and 90 ́s with addition- al layers of a more modern sound shining through.
Todays tune "House of Hate" is taken from the latest compilation album "X Years of Anger", released Oct - 8, 2014.
