Recorded with Kris Hillbert at Legitimate Business in Greensboro, the album is a relentless barrage of abrasive, blackened, emotive hardcore played with utmost intensity and a strong sense of urgency. On Taedium Vitae, Centuries take their potent brew of dark hardcore, tragic melodies, volatile d-beat leanings and emotive angst-ridden vocal assault to extreme new levels.

They might be young, but they have already gained great reputation in their home state for being one of the most sincere, intense and hardworking bands, what’s more, on Taedium Vitae, they have carved a bold and assured sound which would lead anyone to believe they have been cutting their teeth for decades already.

“Centuries do what they do with incendiary passion and ire, and bulldoze through all doubts in the process. Another excellent dose of abrasive hardcore from the Southern Lord stable.” – ROCK A ROLLA

“Glass half empty or half full? For Florida’s Centuries, the answer is almost certainly “smashed into tiny shards”…Centuries concentrate on expressing violent anguish at breakneck tempos, as intense as a high-speed car smash. There’s no let-up, no pause for breath and no hope…Now that’s what K! calls emotional hardcore.” – 4K KERRANG!

“A relentless barrage of detonated emotional and sonic intensity, constantly on the verge of collapse and disintegration into chaos. It might testify for a lot of pain, but it is definitely beautiful to listen to…Centuries have just started, and Taedium Vitae is already up there with say, When Forever Comes Crashing…Taedium manages to push the envelope just this little bit further into the abyss the same way Comity did when their debut came out in 2002.” – METAL HAMMER

“The filthy overdriven guitars and ragged vocals spew out at a furious pace.. it’s a good shot of adrenaline in the arm.” – ROCKSOUND

“The songs form a cohesive barrage of anger as they slip seamlessly into one another. Vocally, it’s beyond raw and it’s easy to imagine there was blood dripping from the microphone at the end of the recording sessions.  Centuries may be tired of life, but this album is proof that there’s still plenty to be thankful for.”

“Taedium Vitae is loud, raucous, intelligent, and short. All in all, a great listen. In the end, that is all that matters, right? Here’s to hoping Centuries has a long career ahead of them. Pick them up. You will be glad you did.”

“Taedium Vitae is a striking and thrilling experience which burns physically and mentally whilst casting a wash of pleasure and satisfaction which marks the band as the future of hardcore.”

“Centuries’ apocalyptic style of hardcore reminds of label mates All Pigs Must Die with less of a crust ambience but rather black metal elements in the shape of hoarse vocals and a reverb-laden sound. Songs are short and appear desperate, so Taedium Vitae affects your soul directly instead of getting into your ear at once. The record may work as a direct means for anger management, yet has much more value due to its subtle melodic and rhythmic layers, which rather make for a long-term interest, especially since the album is short enough to be listened to repeatedly in one session.” 10/15 LEGACY
“20 minutes, right in the kisser.” FUZE GERMANY
