This Day In Music History: September 7th, 1988 – Metallica releases “…And Justice For All”

The Sarasota, Florida metal band Corpus came to fruition in 2018 with the release of their debut EP ‘Delirium’, within the same year the band would go on to release their follow-up EP ‘Torment’. It’s pretty clear Corpus is just getting started.
