Although less expressive than Scandinavian scene giants like In the Gates or In Flames (probably they too must have adopted a preposition), Centinex are one of the oldest death metallic bands to issue from Sweden, having formed as soon as 1990 however, not actually attaining significant career momentum until a long time later. You start with 1991’s THE FINISH of Life demonstration, Centinex’s semi-original lineup of vocalist Mattias Lamppu, guitarists Andreas Evaldsson and Kenneth Wiklund, bassist Martin Schulman, and drummer Joakim Gustavsson documented several independent sessions that have been strangely just released in cassette type. These included 1992’s Unconscious Lobotomy LP, 1993’s Beneath the Blackened Sky EP, 1994’s Transcend the Dark Chaos EP and, over time of inactivity, 1996’s Malleus Maleficarum, which capped this turbulent arriving old by compiling uncommon and unreleased songs. Centinex entered a fresh phase of the profession with 1997’s Reflections and its own instant successor Reborn Through Flames a 12 months later, both which, despite needing the usage of a drum machine (oddly acknowledged on both albums as “Kalimaa”), noticed an even more confident and mature music group finally arriving at grips making use of their placement in the neighborhood picture — that being truly a typically intense, but nonetheless melodic Scandinavian loss of life metallic sound within the In the Gates vein. A significant personnel re-shuffling started taking place during the period of 1999’s Bloodhunt EP and 2000s Hellbrigade recording, in order that by enough time they released 2002’s Diabolical Desolation, vocalist Jonas Jansson, guitarists Jonas Kjellgren and Jonas Ahlberg, and drummer Kennet Englund experienced became a member of the ever-present Martin Schulman within the Centinex quintet.
