Criticism and controversy
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. 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."Fisher, Jason (27 June 2011). "Dethcentrik Video Banned By YouTube". The Gauntlet. Rozzengarten, Der (5 October 2011).
