German technical death metal maestros CENTAURUS A will be releasing their debut album, "Side Effects Expected" on Listenable in March 2009. The band got their name from a galaxy: "It is one of the most interesting and peculiar galaxies in the sky, and is a strong source of radio radiation (therefore the designation Centaurus A); it is actually the nearest radio galaxy. Centaurus A galaxy has swallowed another galaxy similar to ours about 2 billion years ago."

The band was formed in 2000 and released three demos: "Last Step Line" [2000], "Nimbus" [2001] and "Narcotic" [2003]. CENTAURUS A is: Johannes Henke [vocals], Hernan Martinez, Maik Matanovic [guitars],
Michael Ahlgrimm [bass], Patrick Schroeder [drums].

Centaurus A is defining their musical goal as follows : "We're constantly working on developing an unique style of metal, always trying to push our technical limits as musicians to new levels."

"Side Effects Expected" is a collection of melodic death metal and was recorded with Jacob Hansen at his own studio in Denmark.
