CENTURIAN
CENTURIAN
Liber Zar Zax
(Listenable Records)
45:28min

First things first: the line-up change didn't hurt Dutch CENTURIAN at all and newly recruited bassplayer / vocalist Jerry Brouwer and guitarist Oskar van Paradijs replace former members, vocalist Seth Van de Loo and bassist Patrick Boley (who both will concentrate on their main band SEVERE TORTURE from now on) perfectly. The line-up actually got stronger because of the fact that CENTURIAN have two guitar players in their ranks now, which will probably result in a more tight sounding live appearance. On the other hand, they haven't changed too much musically. It's still very much DEICIDE / MORBID ANGEL inspired brutal US style Death Metal, with a lyrical concept that deals with chaos, Satan and death. Even though it's an ok sounding record, the production still doesn't completely convince me as I suppose there's a lot more possible when it comes to this style of music (just listen to the ABHORRENCE debut). So, apart from a highly improved coverart after all, no real surprises, just another solid and welldone offering from one of Hollands leading Death Metal units, which at least comes across a lot more inspired sounding than DEICIDE's quite lame new album.
