| 27 February 2013 | Reply


Dutch death metal warriors CENTURIAN have officially released Contra Rationem in North America via Listenable Records.

The band’s third full-length, and first offering of new material in 11 years, has delivered the expected sledgehammer to the eardrums of metal critics everywhere, with Apoch’s Metal Review rating the album a 9.5/10 and calling it “a solid, hard hitting Death Metal assault, perfectly laced with a vibrant Black Metal influence.”

To celebrate the release of Contra Rationem, CENTURAIN and Listenable Records have teamed with to stream the album in its entirety.  Check it out at

Main songwriter Rob Oorthuis commented on his vision about the authenticity, core and strength of the new album, “Contra Rationem is an adversive record in the broadest sense of the word. It lacks all the ethics of contemporary productions. Leaving only the dynamic range of decay and rats exploring your skeleton. Through the rattle of bones…One might even hear flesh on instruments. We keep our death metal under-produced. All songs were nailed with conviction, without hesitation, in one take. Guided only by tongues of fire descending upon our heads. Uncorrected. As real as we are not.”

Contra Rationem is available as a vinyl LP, CD or CD/T-shirt combo pack and digitally wherever good metal is sold.

“2013 is already turning out to be a good year for death metal fans, and Centurian have made it better with Contra Rationem.” – Wicked Channel

“This piece of red flesh is recommended to lovers of brutality, complexity and technique.” –
Zombie Ritual Zine
“A definate release for cracking your skull!!” – Aquelarre Zine

“Pure brutality slamming you in the face.” – Artemortifica
