Unleashing their eighth and latest release “Daño Colateral” digitally this past April and physically on CD on June 30th through Bandcamp and distributor Ablaze Productions, Mexican thrashers CENTAURO are proud to announce they will be hitting the road with deathcore act Lack Of Remorse for the Northern Mexico leg of the “Misfits 4 Life Tour”.
Sep 20 – Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes
“Daño Colateral” is CENTAURO‘s third full-length adding to their existing repertoire of well worked classic thrash intertwined with hearty samples of elements from several metal sub-genres, most notably black and death, resulting in a recognizable, deep and unique sound.
“Daño Colateral” is a concept album focused on the turbulent story of a person that was born into awful situations and throughout their life, continues to experience numerous setbacks even through effort and good will; a subjective message to decadence of society and modern system thoughts.
Drummer Mario Rivera further explains:
“The album is a story about a person that has been born from rape, that’s why this newborn is unwanted; So he and his brother work their way through the struggles of life until his brother dies. He gets angry with life and his resentment burns until he gets into prison for vandalism. In prison, he learns how to be a real criminal, and when he is released, he begins a path of violent crimes and killing until his madness makes him commit suicide.”
The band purposely takes the listener through torrid moments to create atmospheres of deep anxiety, fear, anger, joy and depression. It’s a journey through emotions that evolve from one to another. This intense story that can be both heart wrenching and uplifting can be heard in full stream and downloaded on Spotify, Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play.

In the heat of the summer of 2009, Mexican thrash metal band Centauro was born. Hailing from Culiacán, Sinaloa, they took their name from famous Mexican revolutionary fighter Doroteo Arango (Pancho Villa) a.k.a. “El Centauro del Norte”.
Mario Rivera (drums) delves into the origin of the band’s name,“We were kind of tired of a majority bands in our country having names mainly in English with some of them not even translating correctly. Coming from Mexico we really wanted our band’s name in our mother tongue to represent our culture and history. We wanted truly Mexican inspired metal, not everything to be about Vikings, runes, occultism and demons.”
Focusing on creating original trash infused metal they have found recognition both locally and abroad. Over the course of nine years they have unleashed eight releases, 2 EPS (Enraizados – 2010, Oligarquía – 2014), a demo (Vía Agresión – 2011) and 3 full lengths (Devastación Total – 2013, Ciénagas Del Engaño – 2015, Daño Colateral – 2018). Their sound is well worked classic thrash intertwined with a hearty sample of elements from several metal subgenres, most notably, black and death, creating a recognizable, deep and unique sound.
Staying true to their roots, they write lyrics exclusively in Spanish broaching themes including politics, religion, lust, laziness, misery, death, joy and criticism of society. This fresh take on thrash metal can be described as aggressive, melodic, and unique. The band brings a contagious energy to the stage putting emphasis on having fun and interacting with the crowd while playing quality music.

“There is something so comforting about Centauro’s trash metal sound. One foot firmly planted in the old school with the other in a clean and fresh technical edge. Nothing is lost in translation as the thumping rhythm, hyper riffing and screeching solos can be understood in any language (Centauro sing in Spanish)…A thrash album with plenty of surprises.” – Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
“People who are not afraid of fast and loud thrash with the necessary blast beats should definitely check this album. The sound is great and heavy, they master their instruments and in vocalist/ loudmouth/ guitarist Iván García they have a kind of Spanish-speaking Tom Araya in house so what more could you want?” – Lords of Metal
“Honestly this record is a big fucking helping of Thrash Metal done right. Whether or not you understand the language doesn’t even matter because the strength of these tracks transcends all that. Daño Colateral is a great album, CENTAURO is a great band, and I am so happy that they fell into my lap.” – Amps And Greens Screens
“if you’re looking for a record that’s going to kick ass six ways till Sunday, these are the droids you’re looking for.” – Glacially Musical
“Centauro are one of the bands that keep things interesting. Coming from Mexico and being one of the few Metal bands that keep the language to their mother tongue may make it a start, but with their new album, Daño Colateral, there may be more…this album a great amount of effort and will surely reach new audiences with this album as they steadily rise.”- Noizze UK
“Centauro nous a sorti un album passionnant sur lequel il ferait bon de se pencher sérieusement.” – Soil Chronicles
