Toronto-based progressive extreme metal unit, Centuries of Decay, are attempting to forge a new heavy metal future. Known for creating a huge atmosphere and letting the metal speak for itself in their live performance, Centuries of Decay are bringing that experience to fans in their debut, self-titled album set for release on August 4th. Influenced by bands such as Enslaved, Opeth, Gojira, Isis, and Strapping Young Lad, the eight-track concept record features Centuries of Decay’s sound that is atmospheric, intense, powerful, dynamic and heavy.
Drummer Derrick Doucette comments:
We’ve often thought about the fragility of civilization throughout history and the idea of events repeating [themselves]. With that in mind, our concept album tells the story of society being born, corrupt[ed], and destroyed in an endless cycle. It can be taken as a literal piece of fiction or even a social commentary. It also comes from more personal issues such as depression, disillusionment, and failure.
Teaming up with MetalMasterKingdom.com, the band reveals their first single, “Rise,” off the self-titled debut album. A track about pure rebellion and the rise of extreme opposition. It is the band’s most brutal song and is a tribute to the death/black metal that they have been influenced by in the past.
Album pre-orders are available on Bandcamp and Amazon.
