The latest album, Red Giant, is an exercise in spontaneity. Every song was written on the spot, with Armellino and Slovak handing a guitar back and forth while Pro Tools recorded until songs started to emerge. Lyrically, the album is a massive supernova of spiteful annihilation. Politically-charged sentiment underscores what can only be described as the purest, most concentrated anger put to tape in years.
And in keeping with the cognitive associations behind the album’s moniker, the musical direction has expanded exponentially beyond any ground that CENTURY has previously ventured upon. The album introduces clean singing in the form of guest appearances by Candlebox frontman Kevin Martin, folk-rock anarchist Adam Taylor and former Armsbendback vocalist Mike Coasey, culminating in a collection of music that is as diverse within itself as it is to everything else in heavy music.
CENTURY is an anomaly of sound; short bursts of unbelievable intensity, unadulterated and sincerely unhinged. As this incomprehensibly massive sphere of fire expands and consumes planets, the future is indeed very bright.
