      Corpus Christi

      Cincinnati, Ohio’s CORPUS CHRISTI is back with a retooled lineup and are ready to unleash their sophomore release, A Feast For Crows. Guitarist and clean vocalist Jarrod Christman, bassist Caleb Rhoads, guitarist Derek Ayres, harsh vocalist Max O’Connell, and drummer Tyler Jameson continually create a sound that grabs you by the throat and never lets go. Although there is only one founding member remaining, CORPUS CHRISTI promises to be the strongest they’ve ever been. The rest of the sensational quintet came into CORPUS CHRISTI through a rather remarkable series of events. “Everyone left, and as a result we got the best lineup yet,” said Christman of their changing roster. “It sucked to lose everyone but it turned out to be for the best. There’s a higher morale, and these new guys are a blast to be around,” he adds. The new breath of life is the result of other bands falling apart. During the summer of 2009, O’Connell was on the road with the former CORPUS CHRISTI lineup selling their merch. On a random stop, he was asked to step in for Micah from Oh Sleeper, leading Christman to realize that O’Connell’s vocal talent could carry a band. When the former vocalist left CORPUS CHRISTI, there was no question in Christman’s mind of who would fill his shoes. “Max was our first choice,” said Christman. Meanwhile, Ayres and Poling were working together in another band based in Cincinnati that just so happened to break up a short while before CORPUS CHRISTI. “Perfect timing,” said Christman about the series of events, “We had known them for years before from the Cincy scene anyway, so it was the logical next step.” It turns out that the ties between these future band-mates date back to 2006, the year in which CORPUS CHRISTI, had their first show with none other than Ayres and Poling’s old band, The Beneath. Christman had known Rhoads his entire life since the bassist’s family attended the church where the vocalist’s father preached. A couple years ago, Christman found out Rhoads was in a metal band and ended up playing a few shows with them. Fatefully, and conveniently when CORPUS CHRISTI lost 4 out of its 5 members, Rhoads’ band broke up leaving him to join the revamped Corpus Christi, adding the final layer needed to complete their new identity. “Everyone’s timing of their band’s disassembly was just perfect,” said Christman. CORPUS CHRISTI , Latin for “the body of Christ,” continues to stay true to their Christian faith, and in doing so they further shatter the stereotype that music with a greater meaning cannot be expressed via metal. “To be a Christian metal band comes with a unique set of hurdles, but we play this music because we love it and because its an extension of our personalities,” Christman explains. Hardships aside, it cannot be denied that their music has led them to a serious list of accomplishments. The original quintet was signed to VICTORY RECORDS in 2008, and spent the last two years on the road supporting their debut album, The Darker Shades of White. CORPUS CHRISTI has toured throughout the country on the Fresh Princes of Metal Tour with labelmates WRETCHED, the Scream The Prayer Tour, and the Ichthus Festival 2009 alongside Norma Jean, Haste The Day, and The Devil Wears Prada. They have also toured with artists such as Four Leter Lie, Heal These Wounds, and Ambush. This summer, the fresh CORPUS CHRISTI is confirmed for the Ichthus Festival 2010 located in Kentucky, and they will be embarking on a nationwide tour in support of A Feast For Crows. Opening with crushing blast beats, brutal riffs, and throat shredding vocals, A Feast For Crows refuses to be unheard or overlooked. Produced by Christman and Shane Frisby, A Feast For Crows was recorded through April 2010 at The Brick Hit House Studios in Massachusetts. Of the time, Christman said it was the “most enjoyable recording experience ever. Out of any group, band, producer, project, ever.”
