Centurian - Liber Zar Zax
For all you Death-junkies out there we have new fodder! The Dutch always had been known for good Death Metal, if I only think of PESTILENCE or GOREFEST... At least as good as the Swedish fraction and the Florida-belchers! And CENTURIAN really can follow their footsteps.

Rather reminding me of MORBID ANGEL or DEICIDE their sound straight from hell comes over in a quality that the two mentioned bands already have lost a long time ago. 45 minutes of best Death Metal, fast, precise, deadly and intense. You won't find a song like "Ritually Slaughtered For Satan" every day, great thrashing! Or let's take "Conjuration For Choronzon", a super-fast breaker that is going straight for your throat and contains some really mean riffs. Evil! The instrumental "Feeding Flesh To The Vortex" loosens up the whole thing, viscous like lava this steam-roller is oozing out of your speakers. Okay, not all songs can keep this level, but you won't find a filler here!

A good investment for all fans of heavy Death Metal! Definitively heavy stuff and nothing for whimps! I for my part have to soothe my ears with a RUSH-hour, if you understand...
