Centurian are a band from the Netherlands that plays a very heavy and brutal form of blackened death metal and this is a review of t heir 2013 album "Contra Rationem" which was released by Listenable Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast blackened death metal riffs that are heavy and brutal sounding with a good amount of influences from the Florida death metal scene, while the lead guitars are very dark sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all deep death metal growls as well as a brief use of spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover anti christian, blasphemous and occult themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Centurian are a very great sounding heavy and brutal blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Thou Shall Bleed For Thy Lord Thy God" "Judas Among Twelve" "Antinomium" and "Adversus". RECOMMENDED BUY.
