Centiment - Streets Of Rage review
9th Apr 2014 | 10:00
A potent fusion of djent, prog and videogames
With three-quarters of alt- rockers inMe among their ranks, you might expect Centiment's output to echo their main gig, but the guitar playing provides a sharp contrast – the band dub their music 'geeky gamer tech metal', and they're not far off.
Their debut is crammed with videogame references and retro synths, offset by a wealth of metal flourishes courtesy of axemen Gazz Marlow and Greg Mcpherson. A potent fusion of djent and prog – plus a few anthemic choruses for good measure – makes Streets Of Rage almost as addictive as its button-basher namesake.
