New Rusted Metal Column: Sentenced 'Down'
8/31/2018 by Frank Hill




The early to mid-90s were such a turning point for heavy metal in general, but specifically for the independent label Century Media. This record, like so many others, solidified what we all knew--this was OUR label. With it's capture of the Norwegian black metal genre, focus on young and traditional US acts like Nevermore and Iced Earth, its embrace of diverse acts like The Gathering and Stuck Mojo, the label played host to the revolution of heavy metal. Dismissing hard rock and glam ties, it showcased the new generation of heavy metal fans that became musicians and artists.

Nothing represents this place in time or this styling more than the Sentenced 'Down' record.
