American Ragnarok

oops!

MMXI saw the latest corretja release. A melodic death metal tribute to the intersection of Norse Ragnarok, the end of the world, and the American Civil War, the apparent end of the Union. From the battle of Lundene to the first and second battles of Bull Run, this work explores the common threads between norse and civil warriors. Each song is a short wintery blast of grim melody with symphonic elements in tight composition. Includes a cover of Depeche Mode's 1983 classic 'Photographic' re-imagined as a dark age battlefield memoir. Also, a touching piece marking the passing of Scott Columbus, longtime Manowar drummer, as a medley of classic Manowar songs Secrets of Steel and Blood of My Enemies. Back again is Sam Justice to handle backing vocals!

Available on 12" vinyl or download. Please listen/download below.

New Brutalism

oops!

MMVII marked the age of New Brutalism, an architectural style showcased in science fiction classic 'Total Recall.' This eclectic EP ranges from the metaphysical questions facing Doug Quaid, to the ball-peen wielding zombie apocalypse survivors' tale. Ever present is the history and mythology of the American Civil War. Includes rare studio out-takes of a cover of the Grim Reaper classic 'See You In Hell' resulting in a serious band conflict. New Brutalism marks the beginning of corretja's unholy and unbreakable union with the legendary sam justice, whose backing vocals can be heard on 'bury' and 'see you in hell.' Mixing, mastering, and engineering of this record was all done under Justice's close supervision. Enjoy!

Available on CD or Digital download. Please listen/download below.

The Chinese Have Many Hells

oops!

MMIII brought a frigid blast of thrash/symphonic metal themed after the hells of chinese mythology. Inspired by the film Big Trouble In Little China, and Chinese history, the title track is five movements of symphonic brutality. Due to popular demand, many of the other songs, such as 'Machine of Death' and 'You Place Value On My Life, I Place Your Throat On My Knife,' were culled from a live performance included on the prior release, MMI's 'In Six Parts.' This release saw the band exploring new song structures including 30-45 second songs. Included are covers of Iron Maiden's 'Prowler' and Ozzy Osborne's 'Mr. Crowley'. This release was dedicated to Victor Wong, a great Chinese-American actor. The world is a little dimmer without his light.

Available on CD or Digital download. Please listen/download below.

Machine Of Death If you drive an SUV this song is about you. Lyrics
The Chinese Have Many Hells There are five of them. See if you can count them all. Lyrics
You Place Value On My Life I Place Your Throat On My Knife If you place value on my life, I will place yout throat on my knife. Lyrics
Prowler We have stolen enough from Iron Maiden in the past. It is only fitting that we thank them with this cover. Lyrics
Mr. Crowley Another cover on this record. Mr. Crowley sounds like an all-right guy. Check the french horns! Lyrics
All Thats Left Worth Living For Is The Taste Of Your Blood May the wings of liberty never lose a feather. Lyrics

The Live Experience

Live performance late in the 'In Six Parts' era where we re-discovered our brutal metal roots, showcasing many of the songs that would later appear on 'The Chinese have Many Hells'. That fateful night at Jerome's birthday party helped paved the way for the song writing on American Ragnarok.

Live bootleg The live recording from Jerome's 13th birthday party, finally immortalized on the internet.

In Six Parts

oops!

The early MM's were a heady time and the world was ready for an experiment with a new direction. This album's artisitic aspirations were high, combining sampled loops, clean vocals and melodic passages, while 'See You in Hell' and 'Angels Lie Dead' keep one foot firmly in the icy metal past.

History will vindicate us.

Edison the Heretic Inspired by this painting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Verbatim. Lyrics
So Long and Best Wishes Growing old is part of life. May you wear the years like a heavy cloak. Lyrics
See You In Hell Not the Grim Reaper song, but a standout metal track. A carnival creation. Lyrics

The Demon That Makes Trophies Out Of Men Ambient and haunting with industrial influences. Lyrics
Angels Lie Dead Brutal blast from the dim past. Don't buy this record, otherwise you will one day be a slave. Lyrics

A Call To History's Hero

oops!
MCMIXVIII brought 'A Call To History's Hero' on the icy winds blown by the self-titled debut. Inspired by heroes from American History, the gamut is run from the theological doctrine criticism of 'Standing on the Promises of God', to the industrial 'Carl Weathers'.
Standing on the Promises of God Apostolic succession needs to fall.
Skynet Is Now The simple fact that you are reading this is evidence.
One Way Ticket to the Boneyard The title says it all.
Carl Weathers Corretja is deeply influenced by industrial music. Hence...
The Sun that Spun Out of Control Make sure to protect your 1st Amendment rights! Presently they are be being sat upon. Segues into 'Only In A World...', Corretja's first song about the pros and cons of wholesale animal slaughter.

Self Titled Release
