Long running Swedish death/thrashers, CENTINEX, have decided to call it a day after 16 years and nine studio albums. Here is the official word from their website:
“We hereby announce that after 16 years in the business the Swedish death metal act CENTINEX call it quits. This might come as a surprise to many of you, especially after releasing such a strong and critically acclaimed album as World Declension.
“However, things came to such a point where the only solution was to call it a day. Without going too deep into all the details I can tell you that there are many reasons (personal, musical etc) for this decision and believe me, everything is well thought out.
“As of today we stop all band activities but we will do one farewell show, the already booked appearance in Eskilstuna, Sweden, on May 13th.
“We wanna thank and salute each and everyone out there who have supported us in some way during all these years.
“Of course all the members will go on with metal, jointly and individually, in various bands and projects. So you will sure hear from us in the near future.
“Thanx for your attention in Centinex and remember to keep the flame burning!!
Martin & CENTINEX, Avesta, Sweden, April 2nd 2006.”
