Centurion: Serve No One

Centurion are one of the many Polish death metal bands that form the every growing extreme music scene of that country, and Serve No One is the band's second full-length release.

The album contains ten tracks all of which fall under the rubric of brutal death metal, featuring aggressive riffage and blastbeats galore. True to the genre, every song features a plethora of riffs and changes, reminding us that a major feature of brutal death metal is a level of technicality that requires the musicians to be quite skilled. This is reflected in the dynamics of the tunes on this album and, especially, in the changes from blastbeats to more thrashy drums with the same guitar riff laid on top.

Compared to a lot of other brutal death metal these days, there is somewhat of an old school feel to Serve No One which makes itself felt in a lot of the straight up death metal riffage that pops up every now and then on this album, to be sure. A further, and perhaps even more salient generator of the old school death metal feel is the production which appears to be inspired by the fat and bottom-rich sound that many of the death metal bands who recorded in Morrisound in the 1990s had. A positive effect of this approach other than pure nostalgia is that the brutality in the music itself is given an extra boost of oomph due to the compact sound of the guitars.

So, if you are up for 28 minutes of absolute brutality, do not hesitate to check out the blastfest that is Centurion's Serve No One.
