Centhron was created in Winter 2001. It started with an electronic intimacy between Elmar Schmidt (Voice + Synth + Programming) and Jörg Herrmann (Progamming) which resulted into the first Demo “Melek Taus” in 2002, as Centhron did not want to arrive without a recording medium being the support act on a feindflug concert.
As this demo became rather successful Centhron decided to record a complete album to give it a try in the market. The album „Lichtsucher“ (2003) exeeded all expectations! DAC Dj Bullet Nr.1, fairly represented in the DUC Charts, Zillo Sampler and several requests and congratulations from all over Europe. And all this even without a label!
Gigs in Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium and Italy have been rocked together with Suicide Commando, SITD, Kiew, Xotox, Agonoize, Reaper, Psyclon Nine, Grendel, Soman and many more. Every time the live perfomance has been improved which resulted in positive feedbacks up to waves of exitement.
The live members Melly Thies (Female Voice), Stefan Thies (Bass) and Anette Schmidt (Live Synth) have been part of this “Centhron family” from the very start next to leader Elmar Schmidt and sound engineer Jörg Herrmann. Encouraged as this Centhron started to create the second album „Gottwerk“ (2006), a first-class electro-firework. This time supported by the label “Final Dusk“. As well as “Lichtsucher” this album was rather successful, this time even up to the USA. Unfortunately there has not been a distributor, but requests from several DJ’s have been frequent. As a result, Centhron has sent the disks to the US on their own initiative.
After three years of waiting the album “Roter Stern” was published with Scanner (Dark Dimensions). Mixed by Jan L. (Noisuf X), Cover Art as always by Claudi Corsten, yet another “Gottwerk” slamed the speakers!
After the tour with Agonoize, the Centhron fanbase grown bigger and bigger. Centhron mastermind Elmar Schmidt worked hardly in his studio and created in a new megalomania the most danceble Centhron album ever. DOMINATOR!
In spring 2011 the new album will be released, with the new live bassist Markus Vogler. Fat sound (again mixed by Jan L.) and an aggressiveness that even in the harshelectroscene searches for a double are included in the new album.
So be sure: The dancefloors will burn!
