THE LIGHTS OF THIS EARTH ARE BLINDING (SOUTHERN LORD)
KKKK FEROCITY, THY NAME IS CENTURIES. PITY THOSE WHO GET IN THEIR WAY
■ CENTURIES’ BRAND of hardcore is not exactly cheery. In fact, their caustic racket is far better suited to tearing the world down than providing any kind of optimism, though The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding is certainly an extremely cathartic collection. while they repeatedly deliver the goods when it comes to short-but-not-sweet blasts of Trap Them-esque sonic hatred, they are not rigidly attached to one style, and elements of post-metal and sparse acoustic passages add extra gravitas to proceedings. Closer Nul Oreitur and May Love Always Be With You are big beasts indeed, and rightly inspire the word ‘epic’, further demonstrating the strengths of a truly thrilling young band.
