Rotting Christ  


One of Greece's most well-known and respected metal bands, Rotting Christ played a primitive, raw, black/death metal mixture early in their career, gaining some critical acclaim in particular with Thy Mighty Contract, but then decided to shift toward a slower, gloomier dark metal style starting with Triarchy Of The Lost Lovers. Harsh, raspy vocals blend with heavy, bleak guitars, lending a dark, grim mood to the proceedings. Sleep Of The Angels brightens the mood just a bid, opting for a more standard goth metal atmosphere, while the more recent Khronos is harsher, reminding some of the early days while retaining the pace of the later material. Not the easiest of listens, as the dirge occasionally gets to be just a bit much, but the band have matured greatly and the last three albums in particular are professional and worth a listen.
