Centurian Re-Issuing Early Releases

Hells Headbangers has announced April 29th as the drop date for two early, seminal Centurian releases: the band's "Choronzonic Chaos Gods" debut and the preceding "Of Purest Fire" demo. The label comments on the coming re-issues:

"Originally released in 1999, Hells Headbangers is proud to present a well-earned reissue of Centurian's classic debut album, 'Choronzonic Chaos Gods.' Very aptly titled, Choronzonic Chaos Gods is a veritable vortex of chaos magick executed with military precision. Centurian at this stage could accurately be described as 'death metal,' but the ever-cyclonic, ever-coiling whirlwinds unleashed by the band take on a form more supernatural than physical.

"As such, Centurian's debut album found much favor with the black metal faithful at the time, as well as those who held hope for a flagging death metal scene; not for nothing was it released by the esteemed Full Moon Productions label. Now, Hells Headbangers unleashes Choronzonic Chaos Gods, out of print for years, on CD and, for the first time ever, vinyl LP."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Damned and Dead
2. The Law of Burning
3. Hail Caligula!!!
4. Misanthropic Luciferian Onslaught
5. Let Jesus Bleed
6. Blood for Satan
7. Soultheft
8. Cross of Fury
9. In the Name of Chaos More...

Centurian Streaming Entire Album

Dutch death metal warriors Centurian have officially released "Contra Rationem" in North America via Listenable Records. To celebrate the release of it, Centurian and Listenable Records have teamed with StereoKiller.com to stream the album in its entirety. Check it out at this location, or below in the player.

Main songwriter Rob Oorthuis commented on his vision about the authenticity, core and strength of the new album: "'Contra Rationem' is an adversive record in the broadest sense of the word. It lacks all the ethics of contemporary productions. Leaving only the dynamic range of decay and rats exploring your skeleton. Through the rattle of bones...One might even hear flesh on instruments. We keep our death metal under-produced. All songs were nailed with conviction, without hesitation, in one take. Guided only by tongues of fire descending upon our heads. Uncorrected. As real as we are not." More...
