ROTTING CHRIST has reached another peak in its long career that now spans over more than three decades. With a steady core lineup and a well-honed live delivery, ROTTING CHRIST is filling concert halls and reaping enthusiastic crowd reactions wherever it goes. This demonstration of love from their followers is not just driven by nostalgia as the band has managed to evolve and grow, while staying relevant beyond the classics with their highly acclaimed latest albums such as "Aealo" (2010),"Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy" (2013) and "Rituals" (2016).
With more than 30 years, 12 studio albums, a dozen EPs, singles and split releases, as well as more than 1,250 shows under their belt, it is about high time to take a retrospective look at this band's fascinating musical development by picking a select choice of key tracks covering the many facets of ROTTING CHRIST that have sparkled over the years. With such a massive catalogue such an undertaking will always lead to controversy about certain additions as well as omissions from the final list, but the involvement of frontman Sakis Tolis in this extremely difficult task ensures that the result is at least relevant.
ROTTING CHRIST was founded by Sakis Tolis and his brother Themis in the year 1987. Starting out on a basis of death and grind, the Greeks had already embarked on a darker musical journey by the time their debut full-length "Thy Mighty Contract" (1993) was revealed. On the following seven albums covering a ten-year period from "Non Serviam" (1994) to "Sanctus Diavolos" (2004),ROTTING CHRIST steadily defined its own distinct style by experimenting with elements from death, heavy, and gothic metal without betraying their black roots. At the same time, the band went from underground heroes to headliner status. With the highly acclaimed ninth album, "Theogonia" (2007),the Greek stalwarts added an unmistakable native element to their sound, which has remained with them as a signature trademark ever since. Exploring the mythical legacy of cultures around the globe let to ROTTING CHRIST's massively successful latest release, "Rituals". With "Their Greatest Spells", the Greek metal icons musically revisit their exciting legacy and even contribute a brand new track titled "I Will Not Serve" to connect their past with the present.
