Genre/Influences: Dark-Electro.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: German Centhron strikes back with a very special work. The tenth studio album of the German Dark-Electro project comes twenty years after their official debut album “Lichtsucher”. Elmar Schmidt and his gang has reworked eleven songs from their impressive discography this way delivering updated versions.

Content: The work brings multiple essential songs and hits from Centhron back to life. The songs have been seriously boosted while the sound production has been improved as well. This is a way to re-discover famous songs such as “Dreckstück”, “Cunt”, “Einheit C”, “666”, “Dominator” ao in a different, and sometimes noticeable, reworked version; kind of ‘V.02’ edits. Powerful kicks and hard, melodic, leads with harsh, enraged, vocals on top became the trademark of the German group. The work comes to an end with the “Krampus”-song originally released in 2018. We next get remixes of this song by SynthAttack and Intent:Outtake.

+ + + : Centhron became a famous and recognized Dark-Electro formation with an easy recognizable sound. I’ve always respected bands with a very own, distinguishable sound which I often label as ‘sound DNA’ and Centhron belongs to this list. The songs are extremely powerful, driven by hard-core beats and transcendental melody lines. This work is not a ‘best of’ although featuring some of the band’s most essential pieces but reworked versions from songs released over the years. This is pure club-music for dark souls. 

– – – : The sound formula and spirit haven’t really changed over the years; you exactly know what to expect from Centhron although they boosted the songs with extra power on this album.

Conclusion: Centhron has dropped a new sonic bomb over the Dark-Electro universe. Alarm! “Einheit C” will surely cause numerous victims! 

Best songs: “Krampus”, “Dreckstück”, “666”, “Cunt”, “Dominator”, “Einheit C”, “Eisenfresse” + “Krampus – Intent:Outtake Remix”.

Rate: 8½.
