Of course we also need a new Rotting Christ topic in the new forum, right?

Rotting Christ is my favourite band by far, and especially their first three full-length albums are my favourites (they don't have ANY bad release, though)

There've been rumors about a new Rotting Christ album for months, but only very few seem to be true:

- the album is in production
- "Last news is that I am still working on the new album and till now it sounds ...really occult, aggressive and as always dark melodic." - Sakis Tolis

Well, I hope it's going to be like Sakis says.

Your opinions about the band?

Hi.. I've heard a lot about this band. I'm thinking of checking them out. Can someone recommend the best album to start with?

Start with the debut album, Thy Mighty Contract.

Personaly, I think all their stuff is very very good. After Theogonia... I'd check Kronos/Genesis/Sanctus Diavolos. They all are great and in the same vein.

Older stuff like A Dead Poem and Sleep Of The Angels is much more gothic/slow paced influenced, yet good.
First ones are excelent but much more primitive sounding (Triarchy Of Lost Lovers being probably personal favorite along with Genesis).

Haven't listened alot Aealo, but I remember it being some sort of step down... should pick it up someday.

Theogonia, AEALO, Genesis and Sanctus Diavolos are my favorites. I just love songs about greek mythology.

Triarchy of the lost lovers is their best imo. However most of their stuff is good.

Yes, the vocalist's accent does indeed give the band another 'bit of something different'. The band has quite a distinctive sound overall, and that distinctive voice, with that accent and the pronunciation of certain words adds to the overall charm.

Theogonia is still my favourite. AEALO was great but it wasn't as memorable as Theogonia...for me at least.

Yeah, Theogonia is an amazing album. AEALO and Sanctus Diavolos come close.

I've been hearing that Non Serviam album of theirs. Loving it. Amazing album.

One of the few bands that started with a bang and still doing so.

If you mean "dud" as in "bad" then yeah I know where you coming from. I prefer their older stuff more than the recent ones. Addictive stuff haha

You know, I've never really been a fan. It's funny. I know a lot about them, I just never got into them. Maybe I just haven't them in the proper time and place.

I hope their next album is finally good. I mean, the last album wasn't "awful" just forgettable and uninteresting.

^I am really enjoying this album. Some of my favourite Rotting Christ songs to date are on it. In Yumen - Xibalba is a f-king masterpiece of a song.

So sad that they finally played in Portugal and I couldn't go see them because I was on my vacations. Talk about bad luck. Maybe they will come again?

Anyway, I've been compensating that by watching their DVD Non Serviam - A 20 Year Apocryphal Story which has an amazing setlist
