Blackened hardcore outfit Centuries released their sophomore full-length, The Lights of This Earth Are Blinding, late last month. The record is a dark epic that sidesteps genre conventions by incorporating atmospheric, sludge and melodic elements into the mix, while staying true to the band’s signature hellacious hardcore.

Outdoing such a promising debut could prove to be a very daunting task, but Centuries do it with ease on The Lights of This Earth Are Blinding. Continue Reading
