Availability : In stock

  • Description

    According to Jim Mutilator in the book 'Non Serviam', the main man Sakis Tolis created the band in 1984 under the name Black Church along with some of his classmates.
    Later on, Sakis Tolis and Themis Tolis joined Black Church and they changed the name to Rotting Christ in 1987.
    From 1987 to 1989, Rotting Christ played grindcore.
    On their 1989 demo, Satanas Tedeum, their sound shifted towards black metal.

    In due time, with the release of A Dead Poem, the band's sound evolved towards the gothic metal realms, with the blackened elements less prominent.
    They started going back to their heavier sound on Khronos, and on Sanctus Diavolos they blackened their sound even more.

    With Theogonia, the band began incorporating folk/world music elements into their music.

    In 2012, the band announced that the line-up from their first three albums - Sakis Tolis, Themis Tolis, Mutilator, and George Zacharopoulos - will get together again for a show at the Nuclear War Now! festival in Berlin, Germany, celebrating their 1000th show and only play songs from their first three albums and demos.
    When the time came for this show, the band appeared with the 2012 line-up and not the original as was planned.
