Centuries are a band from Florida that plays a dark hybrid of crust, grind and hardcore and this is a review of their 2013 album "Taedium Vitae" which was released by Soouthern Lord Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, 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 heavy, dark and brutal sounding riffs that combine grind, d beat, crust and hardcore together to create a sound of their own along with a brief use of clean playing as well as some melodic elements and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched crust/grindcore screams that have a black metal feeling to them as well as a brief use of spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, powerful and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Centuries are a very great sounding hybrid of crust, grind and hardcore and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Incipit Tragoelia" "Metus" "Grave Cordibuus" and "Irrita". RECOMMENDED BUY.
