The Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based post-metal act CENTURY — whose 2008 Prosthetic debut, "Black Ocean", was named one of Revolver magazine's Top 20 albums of 2008 — were recently rejoined by original drummer Grant McFarland and bassist Ricky Armellino, the respective drummer and vocalist of fellow Lancaster act THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE. Additionally, the group has announced the addition of guitarist Todd Mogle to its ranks. A photo of the new lineup appears in the photos section under 2009 Promo Pics
CENTURY has also started work on the follow-up to "Black Ocean", and promises both "an exercise in futuristic sonic annihilation" and a "bold step forward stylistically." The as-yet-untitled CD is tentatively scheduled for a fall release. In the meantime, the band will play select regional dates — including an appearance at April's New England Metal and Hardcore Festival — and continue working on the video for "Black Ocean" track "Monolith", a continuation of the clip for the album's title track, which garnered extensive airplay on MTV2's "Headbangers Ball" last year. The band also plans to record a cover of SEAL's "Kiss From A Rose" for an upcoming anniversary compilation to be released by Tribunal Records, the label that issued CENTURY's 2006 debut, "Faith and Failure".
"I'm extremely excited to play New England Metal and Hardcore Festival," says CENTURY frontman Carson Slovak, "and I hope people walk away from the experience thinking I'm really, really cool."
In addition, Slovak — also an accomplished graphic artist who has designed recent album covers and layouts for ALL THAT REMAINS, TESTAMENT and ANTAGONIST, among others — will participate in an artwork-related panel discussion at the inaugural Launch Music Conference in Lancaster on April 17, the day before CENTURY takes the stage in Worcester.
CENTURY has begun the writing process for their next full-length album. Much like the critically acclaimed Prosthetic Records debut, the new album will be an exercise in futuristic sonic annihilation. However, the as-yet-untitled effort will also prove to be a bold step forward stylistically from Black Ocean, which was recently named one of Revolver Magazine's "Top 20 Albums of 2008". CENTURY will be playing select regional dates throughout the writing process, in addition to an appearance on 2009's New England Metal & Hardcore Fest.
Additionally, the newest incarnation of Pennsylvania's CENTURY has arrived. Rejoining the band is original drummer Grant McFarland and bassist Ricky Armellino, current drummer and vocalist of This Or The Apocalypse, respectively. Also joining the band on guitar is longtime friend, Todd Mogle. When asked about the recent line-up change, vocalist Carson Slovak and guitar player Jason Baker declined comment, citing future grievances with the new members.
Fans of CENTURY's debut music video from the album Black Ocean will be excited to learn that production on the follow-up video for the song "Monolith" is underway. The video will be a continuation of the first installment, which garnered heavy rotation on MTV's Headbangers Ball in 2008. The band swears that the first video will make sense after this one.
