CENTINEX The Pestilence

EP · 2022 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"The Pestilence" is an EP release by Swedish death metal act Centinex. The EP was released through Agonia Records in April 2022. It´s the follow-up release to Centinex´s eleventh full-length studio album "Death In Pieces" from May 2020.

It´s a five-track EP release ("Afraid of the Light" is a bonus track only available on limited editions of the EP) and Centinex as always pummels the listener with some powerful Swedish death metal. I thought maybe the title of the EP signalled that Centinex had opted to cover a couple of Pestilence songs, but that´s not the case at all. Instead you get all new original material from Centinex. As always that means some pretty standard fare Scandinavian death metal, which is decent enough, but nothing out of the ordinary for the genre.

"The Pestilence" features a well sounding production job, which suits the material well, and upon conclusion this is another solid release from Centinex. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.

CENTINEX Death In Pieces

Album · 2020 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Death In Pieces" is the eleventh full-length studio album by Swedish death metal act Centinex. The album was released through Agonia Records in May 2020. It´s the successor to "Doomsday Rituals" from July 2016. Only bassist Martin Schulman remains from the lineup who recorded the predecessor. Schulman is also busy as a member of Demonical and since the release of "Doomsday Rituals", Demonical have released their fifth full-length studio album "Chaos Manifesto" (March 2018), and few months after the release of "Death In Pieces", Demonical would also release their sixth full-length studio album "World Domination" (October 2020). The last couple of Centinex releases have featured at least a couple of Demonical members in the recording lineup, but "Death In Pieces" only features Schulman.

Stylistically the material on "Death In Pieces" is pretty standard fare Swedish death metal. It´s slightly different from the sound of the two preceding Centinex albums, but that may be a consequence of the major lineup changes taking place between the last album and this one. Other than that it´s pretty much business as usual with Centinex. They can play and write reasonably effectful death metal tunes, and also produce well sounding releases, and all that is also true for "Death In Pieces". It´s nothing out of the ordinary for the genre, but it´s solid and comforting as you know what you´re going to get. A 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is warranted.

CENTINEX Doomsday Rituals

Album · 2016 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Doomsday Rituals" is the tenth full-length studio album by Swedish death metal act Centinex. The album was released through Agonia Records in July 2016. It´s the successor to "Redeeming Filth" from November 2014. "Doomsday Rituals" proves that "Redeeming Filth" wasn´t just a one-off comeback album for Centinex. Instead it appears that bandleader/bassist Martin Schulman opts to continue with both Centinex and Demonical.

"Doomsday Rituals" features the same linuep who recorded "Redeeming Filth" and it´s overall also a very similar sounding release. The music style is still old school Swedish death metal which is predominantly mid-paced, heavy, and brutal. It´s a pretty standard take on the genre and other than the fact that Centinex have opted not to use a HM-2 dominated guitar tone, "Doomsday Rituals" sound pretty much like you expect it to.

The sound production is professional, the songwriting solid but nothing out of the ordinary, and the musicianship is strong. So you get everything you expect from a release like this, but you don´t get anything beyond that. Centinex at this point is the very definition of a run-of-the-mill type Swedish death metal act. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.

CENTINEX Redeeming Filth

Album · 2014 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Redeeming Filth" is the ninth full-length studio album by swedish death metal act Centinex. The album was released through Agonia Records in November 2014. It´s the successor to "World Declension" from June 2005, so it´s a comeback album after a nine year recording hiatus. Quite a few things have happened in those nine years though. Centinex officially split up in April 2006 and shortly after disbanding, three of the members of the lineup who recorded "World Declension" formed Demonical along with new vocalist Ludvig Engellau. In the intermediate years Demonical have released four studio albums making a name for themselves, but the wish to ressurect Centinex had been strong and therefore a lineup consisting of Martin Schulman (bass), Kennet Englund (drums), Sverker Widgren (guitars), and Alexander Högbom (vocals) were assembled for the recording of "Redeeming Filth".

So with the history of Centinex and Demonical now completely intwined, with members and former members of both bands appearing on recordings of both artists I´m wondering if there is really a need for both acts to exist...are the output of the two band´s really different enough to warrant the existence of two artists?

Considering that the last two albums by Demonical ("Death Infernal" from 2011 and "Darkness Unbound" from 2013) sounded more and more like a combination of the melodic old school Swedish death metal style of Dismember and the dark, grim, and brutal old school Swedish death metal style of Grave, I´m not surprised that the choice to ressurect Centinex was made. I´m a bit more surprised to learn that "Redeeming Filth" is not nearly as melodic as I had expected and actually predominantly features a more brutal old school Swedish death metal sound (although they haven´t gone for the HM-2 guitar tone on this album). I simply can´t tell where Centinex ends and where Demonical begins anymore (other than the lack of the HM-2 guitar tone).

"Redeeming Filth" features a slightly less interesting sound production than the preceding Demonical releases, and compared to the Demonical output I´m actually a little less impressed by this comeback Centinex release. It´s a good solid Swedish death metal release, but it´s not anything out of the ordinary and a 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.

CENTINEX World Declension

Album · 2005 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"World Declension" is the eighth full-length studio album by Swedish death metal act Centinex. The album was released through Candlelight Records USA in June 2005. It´s the successor to "Decadence - Prophecies of Cosmic Chaos" from February 2004. There´s been one lineup change since the predecessor as drummer Kennet Englund has been replaced by Ronnie Bergerstål. "World Declension" would be Centinex last release in a number of years as they disbanded in April 2006. Three of the members of the lineup who recorded this album eventually went on to form Demonical and continued their career in that band. Centinex ultimately reformed, but it wasn´t until 2014 they would return with their ninth full-length studio album "Redeeming Filth".

If you´re familiar with the sound of the last couple of Centinex albums and especially the sound and style on "Decadence - Prophecies of Cosmic Chaos" it won´t be a surprise to you that Centinex play a melodic yet still relatively brutal and aggressive type of death metal with both raw snarling and deeper growling vocals. Centenix are a well playing unit and lead vocalist Johan Jansson delivers his parts with conviction. He is not a partularly distinct sounding extreme metal vocalist but he masters quite a few styles, which provides the music with some variation.

"World Declension" is well produced, featuring a powerful, raw, and brutal sounding production job, which suits the material well, and upon conclusion it´s another solid release from Centinex. It´s unfortunately also another relatively unremarkable release from Centinex and although they got the basics of the genre covered and no one can accuse them of producing bad quality music, there´s just very little here which you would recognise as being Centinex playing if you didn´t already know. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.
