Centinex Streams New Track, Posts Album Details

The band doesn't want the fans to be kept waiting another near-decade for a new album. Titled "Doomsday Rituals", the record is a natural follow-up to "Redeeming Filth". Martin Schulman (bass) commented: "Heavy riffing, deep brutal vocals, everything from slow via mid-tempo to faster stuff, a perfect mix of the early 90's Florida and Stockholm sound".

"Doomsday Rituals" was recorded at Wing Studios with Sverker Widgren (Centinex, Demonical, Diabolical) behind the knobs. The cover artwork was made by Bahrull Marta of Abomination Imagery.

The track list for the album is:

Centinex Cancel Vinyl Release Plan Of Final Album

Swedish metallers CENTINEX, who announced their split in April 2006, have abandoned plans to release a vinyl and tape/cassette version of their final album, "World Declension". According to the band, "the [vinyl] release got delayed several times by Agonia Records so tired of waiting, we canceled the whole thing and told the label to drop the plans. This goes also for the tape version,. We haven't heard a word from In Coffin Records, so most likely this release will also be forgotten."

"World Declension" was released in North America in September 2005 via Candlelight Records USA. The album received a European release in June 2005 through Cold/Regain Records.

Several former members of CENTINEX have resurfaced in a new band called DEMONICAL. DEMONICAL's debut album, "Servants of the Unlight", was released in April via Germany's Cyclone Empire Records.

Centinex Disband

Swedish Death metallers CENTINEX have posted the following message:

"We hereby announce that after 16 years in the business the swedish death metal act Centinex call it quits. This might come as a surprise to many of you, especially after releasing such a strong and critcally acclaimed album as “World Declension”. However, things came to such a point where the only solution was to call it a day. Without going too deep into all the details I can tell you that there are many reasons (personal, musical etc) for this decision and believe me, everything is well thought out.

Hereby we stop all band activities and our farewell show will be the already booked appearance in Eskilstuna, Sweden, on May 13th.

We wanna thank and salute each and everyone out there who have supported us in some way during all these years. Of course all the members will go on with metal, jointly and individually, in various bands and projects. So you will sure hear from us in the near future.

Thanx for your attention in Centinex and remember to keep the flame burning!!

Martin Schulman & Centinex, Avesta, Sweden, April 2nd 2006."
