Dethcentrik is an extreme metal band from Colorado, formed in the summer of 2009 by vocalist Stefan "Død Beverte" Klein, and guitarists Justin Torres and Michael Glass. As the band was joined by Rose Sinclair, they began to work on music, releasing their first recording, a demo version of Society's Whores on their MySpace shortly after. The band played live for the first time on 17 April 2010. Dethcentrik has had frequent lineup shifts since conception, and for their sound was coined "black horrormetal" by TerrorizerMagazine in the summer of 2010[4]

Criticism and controversy[edit] Edit

Dethcentrik's music has been very unfavorably reviewed, mainly due to the extreme distortion used. The band has also had a video removed from Youtube for potentially offensive content.[6] Their album Why the Innocent Die Young received an extremely low-score review from Metal Storm (webzine). Reviewer DerRozzengarten summed up "Okay, I'd never believe I'd say that, but I'd like to warn you to avoid this album like the Devil avoids the church yard, to say the least. To my ears it's badly produced sound nonsense, in other words lobotomy."[7]
