Centuries are a band with members from the United States and United Kingdom that plays a mixture of crust and hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2018 album "The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding" which will be released on January 28th by Southern Lord Recordings.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some angry hardcore style screams a few seconds later while the music also mixes in elements of crust and d beat as well as the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic fashion and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
A decent amount of dark sounding melodies can be heard in the guitar riffing while acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly along with the faster sections of the songs also bringing in a decent amount of d beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard as well as one song also bringing in a small amount of acoustic guitars and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Centuries plays a musical style that mixes crust punk and hardcore together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Centuries are a very great sounding mixture of crust punk and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding" "Soil" "May Love Be With You Always" and "Nul Oreitur". 8 out of 10.
