CENTURIAN
"CONTRA RATIONEM"
LISTENABLE RECORDS

CENTURIAN emerged from the ashes of the band INQUISITOR back in 1997 out The
Netherlands. These guys have gone through a lot of changes over the years as do many
bands. There were member changes, name changes & some slight musical changes. In 2011
they reformed back under the name of
CENTURIAN. These guys have a very cool Metal
sound that incompasses influences from Thrash / Death & Black Metal music. The guitar
work at times has a really crunchy Thrash Metal style, especially in the more all out riffing
and shredding parts, but at other times it's raw cold and harsh sounding like in old Black
Metal. I really dig the combination of these two styles a lot, because it's very few bands out
there that can do this and do it where it sounds right. The fast paced blasting drums is where
the majority of the Death Metal influences surface, not to say they aren't present else where
as well. When you combine these with the harsh thick throaty vocals of Neils Adams you get
a massive wave of extreme Metal styles just repeatedly running you over. His vocals are
walking that fine line between thick low ended Death growls with mid ranged harsh Black
Metal growls & screams.
CENTURIAN may only have a few releases out in all their years
of being together, but they are some of the most powerful and best albums in Death Metal
history. This is a must for fans of old
MORBID ANGEL, BATHORY, CARNIVORE,
NUNSLAUGHTER, VADER, BEHEMOTH, KRISIUN
& DEICIDE. Another fine slab
of Metal mayhem from the guys in
CENTURIAN!
