Centralia-Grimoire (2014)

The cover art to  black metal albums say so much about the music within, the cover is obscure and esoteric. This album make you feel like you’re in the middle of a blizzard being lost deep in the woods late at night. This recording is fairly raw, with the guitars having a somewhat muddy tone; while they could use a little more edge, they still have sufficient clarity. The riffs express haunting inflections of anger. The bass is solid, clear and bouncy. The vocals are wild and uninhibited, "Grimoire" demonstrates that Centralia"s skills are more diverse and dynamic than many might expect. Believe it or not this is Black Metal from new jersey!
