Centurion - _Arise of the Empire_
(Scarlet, 1999)
by: Aaron McKay (2 out of 10)
The Italian metal crusaders Centurion thrust themselves upon the scene with this _Arise of the Empire_, their debut release. I say, some things are better left undone, kind of like this album. Have you listened to Judas Priest? Helloween, maybe? Well, now imagine Rob Halford or Michael Kiske crooning, in the finest testosterone-laden fashion, about the atmosphere surrounding the rise of the Roman Empire. Well, imagine that! You now have an -excellent- working knowledge of what Centurion is all about without having to endure this nine track, almost fifty-one minute, rehashing of Flotsam and Jetsam's _Doomsday for the Deceiver_ or Metal Church's _The Dark_. Look to the past for the originals, people, not this, albeit well-done, knock-off of much more enthralling groups of yesteryear!
