About Koro

At this moment, there are two bands, known as "Koro" (actually, one of them called "KorO", with big "O")

The first one - Koro from Knoxville, Tennessee, and existed from 1982 to 1984. The band might have been forgotten if not for a remarkable self-released 8 song 7", recorded in 1983.

The 7" has been bootlegged twice, once in small quantities with a cover similar to the original, and once recently with a different cover and lyrics.

They gained their name from a psychiatric syndrome found mainly in China. The syndrome involves patients, typically 35-40 years old, suddenly becomes worried that their penis will somehow disappear into their abdomen and that they will die.

"Skin-ripping thrash chock full of blistering spasms that detonate this Tennessee invasion in the vein of CAUSE FOR ALARM or D.R.I. KORO thrust a powerful convulsion of firing speed and rapid guitar screaming which swirls in furious catapults of overall chaos. This scorcher is hard to find."
-Pushead, from MRR, 1984

The second one is an alternative band KorO from Kyiv, Ukraine.

Style: rock, alternative, post-punk, new-wave.

Oleg Korsun - Vocals, Guitars
Ivan Shapkin - Back vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keyboards, Programming

The idea of this mutual music project was born quite a long time ago (in the beginning of 2007) when the members were both a part of Nowhereland group and felt that they wanted to create a little bit different music. After Ivan Shapkin had quitted his collaboration with Nowhereland in March 2007, started the project. But in fact Oleg Korsun’s taking part in Nowhereland did not leave much time for work. In summer 2008 when other musicians of Nowhereland left the group, Oleg decided to cancel Nowhereland project and started to work with Ivan Shapkin on KorO project only.
At the moment KorO in the process of recording our debut album which is going to be released in the year 2009.
