Corrupt Leaders Premiere New Song ‘Masters Of War’ With Terrorizer

By on 2 April 2014


Sludgy Canadian crust brigade Corrupt Leaders have just released a new recording, a cover of Bob Dylan’s 1963 classic ‘Masters Of War’, and you can hear it here first with Terrorizer…

Despite being an active band for less than a year, Corrupt Leaders have wasted no time at all in spreading their distinctive sound across the globe, which contains elements of sludge, crust punk and grindcore. Their self-titled debut EP is a highly recommended blast of filthy fury, and it’s still available to download for free right here.

The band have recently tried their hand at ‘Masters of War’, a song that was originally released by Bob Dylan in 1963.  While Dylan wrote the lyrics (which are still relevant 50 years later), the chord melody was taken from a medieval English folk song. The song has also been covered by Eddie Vedder, Odetta, Mountain, and The Roots, but it’s pretty safe to say that it’s never sounded quite as gnarly as this particular version.

Mastered by the prolific Brad Boatright (Sleep, Noothgrush, Tragedy, From Ashes Rise) at Audiosiege Engineering, Corrupt Leaders’ cover sounds absolutely monstrous. In keeping with the band’s ethos, the song is also available as a ‘pay-what-you-please’ download via their official website and Bandcamp page.
