Four years after the release of La Nuit des Longs Couteaux, Koriass releases his sixth album Abri de fortune (for the end of the world) on April 1st, 2022. Maturity, cynicism, humor, sensitivity and unwavering focus are all present in this album where we discover the evolution of the man behind the character!
Fascinated by rap as a teenager, Koriass was still underage when he made his stage debut. Drafted in 2008 by Disques 7ième Ciel, he then devoted himself to the production of his first real album, Les racines dans le béton, followed by Petites Victoires (2011), a Canadian best-seller.
In November 2013, Koriass presents Rue des Saules, which aptly demonstrates the extent of his talent and allowing him to sweep the Felix of Hip-Hop Album of the Year in the fall of 2014. At the end of 2015, the rapper unexpectedly released the Petit Love EP as a preamble to the album Love Supreme, which was released in February of the following year. Love Suprême will allow him to add numerous awards and nominations to his track record, as he receives the Félix for Hip-Hop Album of the Year at L'ADISQ in addition to accumulating 8 nominations, the Artist of the Year award at GAMIQ as well as a JUNO Awards nomination for Francophone Album of the Year.
Considered one of the leaders of Quebec rap, Koriass returns in force in the fall of 2018 with La Nuit des Longs Couteaux, a powerful new album combining the sought-after melodies with the scathing words that characterize him. Four years later, Koriass released his 6th album Abri de fortune (for end of the world).
