- NEW ALBUM - 02.10.2015 - ONE EYED HORSE - www.skykrakken.com
Born out of the hot embers of Charlottesville Va's Black Sabbath annual tribute band, Mass Sabbath, Corsair formed in early 2008 with the purpose of writing progressive rock that would transcend space and time. Having endured the intensive training of of Mass Sabbath, Corsair emerged with calloused fingers and a united, unbending will to unleash new found guitharmonic powers onto the world of rock. Think Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden and King Crimson.
Greg Moffitt, Upfront Profile, Decibel Magazine Issue #101
"...Corsair stand out from the pack." 03.2013
Chris Kee, Zero Tolerance Magazine Issue #051
"Some of the guitar playing is just magnificent - deserving of being mentioned in the same breath as Gorham/Robertson - and there is not a weak track on this beautiful, spirited, passionate, captivating album. 5/5" 01.2013
Adrien Begrand, Terrorizer Magazine Issue #231 (U.K.)
"To hear an album this tasteful is an absolute shock to the system, and a welcome deviation from the norm. 4/5" 01.2013
Jeb Wright, Classic Rock Revisited
"The music is both aggressive and sublime. It is heavy yet hypnotic. The bottom line is that the music of Corsair is the real deal. Grade: A (must own)." 01.20.2013
David Gupta, Needs More Noise Gate (Canada)
"Yup. My first 5 out of 5. Corsair have made one of the, if not, the, album of the year. The fact that it's out so early in the year is almost unfair for everyone else For those of you who know how much I love Mastodon's Crack the Skye, I love Corsair almost as much. For those of you who don't know how much I love Crack the Skye, it's my favorite album. Ever. This is an album for anyone who loves music. Period. Great music, great vocals, excellent production, awesome lyrics, perfect length. In short, it's a flawless album. 5/5" 01.16.2013
Victoria Anderson, Ghost Cult Magazine
"They are in serious contention to be the Top Album of 2013." Issue #4 (pg. 39) 01.2013
Zach Duvall, Top 20 of 2012

Jeremy Witt, Top 20 of 2012
"Since their debut EP, all they've done is write great, fun hard rock and metal jams, and that's exactly what they're still doing here. #14 of 20" 12.2012
Happy birthday to our guitar hero Paul!!
Thanks Stoned Meadow of Doom!
FUZZ FM: "...“Shadows from Breath” are all cool cascades of spring water, the smooth rush of guitarists Marie Landragin and Paul Sebring delaying, echoing and flickering in a dreamy Gilmour/Göttsching sexual mingle."
