Corrupted has a few notable idiosyncrasies which seem to create an air of mystery around the band. Although they hail from Japan, and their members on most releases are all Japanese, they sing almost exclusively in Spanish, though some songs contain sections in Japanese or English. In addition, the band has never taken promotional pictures nor do any of the albums contain group photos. The only known existing photographs are taken by fans at concerts, and they refuse to give interviews.
Corrupted’s albums typically contain extensive liner notes in the form of bleak black-and-white photographs, which add to the gloomy atmosphere of the music.
The band is known for its ability to produce songs of almost any length; their longest song El Mundo Frio is substantially longer than an seventy minutes, while their shortest song, an untitled track recorded for a homeless benefit compilation, lasts less than two minutes.
After their 2011 album 'Garten Der Unbewusstheit', singer Hevi left the band. The loss of his voice, a key of the bands sound, caused the band to struggle for years while trying to find a replacement. During these years Corrupted only rarely performed live. In spring 2015 it seemed for a moment as if the band overcame this trouble and they produced their first release in years with the 7" "Loss". The singer did not join, Corrupted stopped performing for a while and Chew concentrated for almost a year on his solo project begottened. Anyway, in March 2016 Corrupted toured Japan alongside Noothgrush.
