Strangely, this is my first time hearing Centinex, a band I’ve seen mentioned dozens of times over the years, so I can’t say how this EP fares compared to their previous output. It’s heavy, relatively fast-paced death metal with a thrashy edge that seems to borrow a little from post-reunion Destruction at times and a passage reminds me a little of Motörhead’s "Orgasmatron," which is cool. The vocals are an acquired taste, deep raucous growls that the vocalist barks away. Not bad, but I’m wondering if a different style would have worked better with the songs. There’s nothing especially remarkable here, though it has plenty of headbanging moments while it’s on and I found that some riffs tend to stick around once this is over, so there’s that.
