After years of honing their sound & searching for the ideal line-up, the boundary bothering Centiment finally unleash their debut album Streets of Rage early 2014.
In an age of excessive genre definitions Centiment are truly hard to categorise & rightfully so. A bastard hybrid mix of insane metal, frantic vocals spanning sweet melodies, demonic screams of urgency & everything in-between plus a military-tight rhythm section.
Featuring Dave McPherson, Greg McPherson & Gazz Marlow of InMe plus Neil Howard & Mark Shurety on bass & drums respectively, the band embrace the DIY ethic & independent approach to all aspects of their music.
“This band has always been a labour-of-love-hobby so to speak” states vocalist Dave McPherson. “It’s always been about us making music for ourselves, that we want to hear. We have no delusions of grandeur, we just want to keep creating passionate music & take it on the road & have fun with people. If anyone comes along for the ride then it’s a very welcome bonus!”
“The wordplay was a cool challenge for me as I wanted to tackle serious subjects but also mix in some dark twisted humour. Greg writes all the music for Centiment which is very refreshing for me as I’m focusing on just the voice & lyrics. Also, from a geeky perspective, as some may tell from the album title, there are a lot of retro game references throughout musically & lyrical. It sounds a bit silly but then so are we really! Me & Greg played games religiously in our youth & it’s nice to give our memories a nod.”
Initially exclusively releasing the album via PledgeMusic, pledgers also get Centiment’s entire rare back catalog, their name in the CD sleeve & tonnes more cool stuff. They’ll be hitting the road for the first time in February 2014.
