Celebrating fifteen years of Corima!

Greetings Corima fans!

 

We hope this finds you well, safe, and healthy.

 

We are thrilled to bring you some news about the fifteen year anniversary celebration of the band! Corima was formed in 2005 and this year (2020) marks a very special year for us because of all of the achievements that we have made as a band in all of these years. As an unconventional, unorthodox, and uncompromising band in our ideals to make highly original, innovative, and groundbreaking music our path has not been easy. Nevertheless we've never given up and have struggled to keep our vision alive all of these years and have been able to flourish as a unique band that is changing the course of progressive rock music.

 

We have been very fortunate to meet and collaborate alongside extremely talented and deeply committed musicians over the years who have all added so much to the legacy of the band through their individual talents and their shared passion for innovative and unconventional music. Since the inception of the band everyone who has been involved in this project has helped to shape the vision of the band in tremendous ways and also helped to push the band to achieve a unique and unparalleled sound that has gradually grown to become a remarkable addition in the world of progressive rock music. Our current line-up has been the most consistent one because it's the ensemble that recorded our last two albums and the one who has performed and toured the most. The amount of tireless dedication and commitment that each of the members of the current line-up has given to the band has been absolutely incredible and jaw-dropping. Each of them have added an insurmountable amount of talents, ideas, propositions, and an overall steady flow of creative energy that has helped to make the band establish itself as one of the most prominent innovative progressive rock bands in the world. This is not to say that there haven't been challenges and shortcomings to overcome as a creative collective ensemble. There have been many instances where our patience has been tested to the limits and where our hope to remain together as a band has been extremely challenged. Nevertheless, all of this challenges have been able to help us grow and mature as a band and also helped us to keep an undaunted and ever positive attitude to continue with this project that we all love so much. We are overjoyed and extremely grateful at the incredible amount of support, love, and recognition that we have received from friends, fans, and family throughout all of our trajectory as a band and we wouldn't have been able to get to where we are if it wasn't for their loving support.

 

It is with this spirit of gratitude that we are thrilled to announce some of the plans that we have lined up in celebration of our fifteen year anniversary as a band:

 

First, we'd like to let you know that we have just launched a completely brand new website that includes a lot of material about the band such as music, photos, videos, etc. Included in our new website are also different reviews about our albums in the 'press-kit' section as well as a forum entitled 'Corima's music in your life' in the bottom of our 'home' section where fans can share how our music has touched their lives in different ways.

 

Another exciting announcement is that we have made our very first legendary debut album available online for the first time since we released it back in 2007! After many requests over the years from fans asking where they could get our first album we decided to upload the whole album on YouTube as well as sell it online through our music store in our website. This album means so much to us because it was recorded in the very initial stages of the band which was composed of a three-piece ensemble of keyboards, bass, and drums. The album's music characterized by its frenetic, fierce, and explosive energy which fused the unconventional styles of zeuhl, rock in opposition, fusion, punk, 20th-century classical music, and avant-garde jazz paved the way to the innovative, revolutionary, and groundbreaking music that Corima would later release.

Another big news is that we have released our last two albums 'Quetzalcoatl' and 'Amaterasu' on all major download and streaming platforms everywhere! Both of these albums were only released digitally through bandcamp when they first came out and we are very excited to have been able to release them on all major online platforms so that more people can find out about them and listen to them. Both of these albums represent huge milestones in our career as they helped to define the vision and sound of the band and to take our music to higher levels. Visit our music store section of our website to download the albums.

 

 

Lastly, we're also thrilled to announce that we will be releasing a new album very soon! The material of the new album will be the culmination of years of hard work that we spent in rehearsing, performing, and recording in recent years and will expand on the mystic and spiritual saga of the story behind Quetzalcoatl and Amaterasu. We will keep you informed as to when the release of our new album will be.

 

Thank you so much for your support and we are sending you all our best wishes for a safe and calm repose during these times.

 

CORIMA

    Corima, esa banda que conocí en el 2006 tocando en el bar Casting Café de Ciudad Juárez, México. Desde la primer canción que escuché me quedé pasmado, recuerdo que al termino del show me acerqué a felicitarlos por su música e incluso ayudé a Francisco Casanova a cargar los instrumentos al finalizar la tocada. Semanas después me enteré que tocarían de nuevo, esta vez junto a Ginebra Drunk Machine, en un toquín inolvidable, ahí le puse el apodo a Juan Tarin como el John Lenon bajista jaja porque tenía un gran parecido, me acuerdo que Tarin tocaba un FireBird Bass que me encantaba. Francisco era el tecladista más virtuoso que había visto en mi vida y me fascinaba el performance de su baterista. Yo tenía poco tocando la guitarra y en aquél momento vi por primera vez una Gibson SG roja que traía el guitarrista de Corima, que la verdad no sé cuál es el nombre de su guitarrista, pero de lo que si me acuerdo es que me enamoré tanto de esa guitarra que años después me compré una igual, que aún conservo, pues desde esa vez que los vi me enamoré de las guitarras SG. Después los busqué en MySpace, y ahí tenían pocas canciones, recuerdo claramente esta y Buluc Chabtan aunque estaban cortadas, así que apenas estoy escuchando esta canción completa pues nunca pude conseguir su primer album, yo les hablaba a todos mis amigos de Corima pero lamentablemente a nadie le gustó su música. Después los seguí en Facebook. He sido fan de ustedes por 14 años consecutivos y al día de hoy sigo escuchando su música, y no por moda, si no por el gusto verdadero que tengo a su música. He escuchado miles de veces Quetzalcoatl, y tal vez menos pero también Amaterasu, gracias por subir Eponymous pues siento que el album tenía un sentido más oscuro y misterioso, Quetzalcoatl es musical e instrumentalmente una obra de arte, y aunque casi no me gustó Amaterasu no deja de ser un gran álbum. Muchas gracias por su música y espero con ansias algo nuevo. Ojalá algún día pueda verlos de nuevo en vivo pues sería un gran sueño para mi. ¡Saludos!

    Corima doesn't sort in spoiling us! That's why I am so proud to be called as one of your fans. I am after bands who are innovative and do not stop working to inspire people. Corima is obviously one of the very few bands who are doing it the right way. I have written a lot of [url=https://allessayvikings.com/99papers-review/]99papers[/url] about Corima in the past and I am still willing to write even more.
