The Central is a two-piece midwestern experimental grind project. Guitarist/vocalist Frankie Furillo and drummer Alex Roberts began making music together in high school but it wasn't until the summer of 2010 that they decided to focus on music as a duo. Since then, the team has become a force in the aggressive music community, releasing three full-length albums and two eps. Their latest release, Discovery Of A Rat received praise in the underground metal scene, noted to be "Equally memorable and playable" (Heavy Blog Is Heavy), "They did it differently, and did it best" (Metalinsider) and even made the Mathcore Index and Tone Madison 2016 top ten album lists. The two have plans to hit the road and continue writing and performing together with no signs of slowing.
