Corrin - Earth Scorned Beauty demo

Corrin from Rhode Island were one of the many awesome metalcore bands from the New England area in the mid '90s, such as Overcast, Converge, Fortydaysrain, Cave-In, Barrit, etc... Despite being an amazing band with their own sound, they didn't do a lot of proper releases. There's the 'Despair Rides On Angel Wings' 7" from 1995 on Hydrahead Records and the split 7" with Arise from 1996 on Devils Head & Infidel Records and that's it. A couple of years after those releases, in 1998, and after Corrin had broken up, a discography CD called 'Plutonian Shores' was released, again on Infidel Records. It also includes this 'Earth Scorned Beauty' demo from 1995, which was recorded at the same time as the 7". Despite the demo also being on the CD, I decided to rip the original tape, so here are the tracks in their original form and not the remastered versions.

Singer Jesse Leach (spelled 'Leeche' on the demo and the 7") would move on to be the original singer for Killswitch Engage and also fronted Nothing Gold Can Stay (Corrin guitarist Joe Cantrell also played in this band), Seemless and currently The Empire Shall Fall & Times Of Grace. Other bands with former Corrin members include The Game, Breakthrough and The Radio Speaks.
