Eleventh full-length for Centinex, who have carved out a respectable B-level career in the Swedish underground over the past 30 years. This is a band you have heard of, but may not have ever heard, and despite them being pretty good, there is nothing really outstanding about them. Interestingly, this is almost a whole new band from former releases, as only founding bass player Martin Schulman remains from earlier lineups, everyone else being brand-new. Centinex play old-school Swedish Death, with maybe just a tad more Thrash flavor than is the usual, and vocals that are a bit more intelligible than what we often get from this kind of stuff. This has a propulsive sound, heavy riffs, and a lot of energy, the only drawback is that this is not anything different from what Swedish bands beyond counting have been doing for the past three decades. If this is your kind of thing, then Centinex are better than average, but that's it.
