Black Ocean by Century (metal)
Released: Apr 2008
Label: Prosthetic
On their Prosthetic Records debut, Century break out of metalcore's constricting shell. Experimenting with urgent, swirling riffs alongside layered vocals and pummeling start-stop rhythms, Century's wall of sound is advanced, poignant and technical. While the songs heave together like waves on a single turbulent sea, small intricacies like marching drums ("Monolith"), melodic riffing ("Equus"), and catchy bridges ("Black Ocean") distinguish each track through the thick, mucky distortion.
