Corroded team up with Zardonic and Andy Malex for a dark drum ‘n’ bass/metal remix of ‘Rain’


‘Rain’ was the third and last single from CORRODED‘s new album Plague that was released Nov 17th, 2023. The single now gets a remix signed dark drum n’ bass producer Zardonic and his friend Andy Malex. CORRODED are no strangers to working with Zardonic, who worked with the band remixing material from their album Defcon Zero back in 2020. The singer/guitarist Jens Westin comment the new single like this: 

– “Rain is like beauty and the beast. On one hand you have these simple yet beautiful vocal parts that almost rock you to sleep like a lullaby, and on the other hand you have a hellhound that will chase you to death. In short it is a song by CORRODED.”

Who is Zardonic?

The clash of disparate elements activates innovation, and every generation brings us timeless figures who accidentally spark a new revolutionary sound within the music world. Chuck Berry mixed jazz, blues, gospel and country music to create Rock N Roll. A few decades later, Ozzy Osbourne turned up the gain to create Heavy Metal. And since the early 2000s, Federico Ágreda Álvarez, the masked performer known to the world as DJ and producer Zardonic, has harnessed the power of the nexus between Drum & Bass and Heavy Metal to create the sound that is now known as Metal & Bass.

Born and raised in Venezuela, inspired by America, and based in Germany with a passport book stamped into oblivion, he also represents a union of cultures. Following a prolific string of releases, remixes for Pop Evil, Fear Factory, Bullet For My Valentine and Sonic Syndicate, video game soundtracks for Superhot: Mind Control Delete and Redout 2, plus features on All Elite Wrestling, TNT and NBC Sports, packed shows on multiple continents, and 100 million-plus streams, he realized the power and potential of his vision like never before on his 2023 full-length offering Superstars [MNRK HEAVY].

“I’m blessed enough to be able to do what I love the most, and that is Music. Music is my own form of self-healing. It allows me to float above the darkness. Maybe, it will do the same for you.”

CORRODED is a heavy metal band from Ånge, Sweden. The break came in 2009 with the song Time And Again and debut album ‘Eleven Shades of Black’. Since then they’ve released four more albums, toured relentlessly (including several European tours, both on their own and as support for bands like Airbourne), had the théme song for the Swedish TV show Survivor (Expedition Robinson in Sweden) and music in the globally popular video game Battlefield. Their latest (5th) album ‘Bitter‘ was released in 2019, was followed by a European tour and ended the year with a slight change in line-up (long time member Tomas Andersson left the band). As for most bands, the pandemic hit hard, but the band dug themselves into a black hole and recorded their sixth album – ‘Plague’. They comment:

“-We’ve got 5 “children”…each and everyone as much important as the other ones…but this one is our lovechild, our very special “late bloomer” or “trailing child”, born out of the anxiety and boredom of the plague…and, except from mastering, all done by ourselves…welcome to the dark soul of CORRODED..enjoy the ride..”

CORRODED‘s new remixed single Rain  (Zardonic & Andy Malex Remix) is released January 26th on Despotz Records, their new album Plague is out now!
