Swedish metal band band Corroded are back with their first new album in five years. Furthermore, Defcon Zero isn’t just Corroded’s first new album in five years – it’s also their first release on Despotz Records.

“The goal with this album is the usual – complete world domination!” singer/guitarist Jens Westin explains with a smile. “We worked solely within the band this time as we entered this process, with only some raw ideas without any preconceptions. From there on everybody contributed. The creative process was based on our live performances and we had tremendous fun while recording.”

To prepare for the release of Defcon One, the band have released a new single, “Fall Of A Nation”, which you can hear below.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
