Centipede are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of sludge, stoner, doom metal and thrash and this is a review of their 2016 album "Centipede" which was released by Inverse Records.
A very heavy stoner metal sound starts off the album along with some elements of doom metal and after a few seconds clean singing vocals start making their presence known on the recording and the riffs also bring in a great amount of 70's rock style melodies and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
At times the riffs start utilizing tremolo picking and the music also brings in the heaviness of doom metal and sludge while also speeding up a bit in some parts of the songs and adding in a touch of thrash and speed metal and as the album progresses acoustic guitars can be heard briefly before making a return back to a heavier musical direction.
Centipede plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in stoner and doom metal while also mixing in t he heaviness of sludge and the aggression of thrash to create a musical style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion Centipede are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, sludge, doom metal and thrash and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Unspoken" "Black Mead" and "Sarnath". 8 out of 10.
