ROTTING CHRIST They have stood the test of time. Although his name has many guardians clutching their pearls, Sakis Tolis And his brother Themis have emerged from the blackened catacombs of Greece to become one of the most formidable bands in metal.

This year, ROTTING CHRIST celebrate 35 years of evil excellence with their fourteenth album. «ΠΡΟ ΧΡΙΣΤΟΥ» («Pro Xristou«) is destined to occupy a revered place in the band’s heretical history. Always faithful to his name, with «Pro Xristou» («BC«), the band pays tribute to the last of the pagan kings by offering more imposing, gothic and melodic black metal.

Now what ROTTING CHRIST approaching four decades, some fans might have wondered if they had any sacred ground left to conquer. But “Pro Xristou» is the testimony of a band that continues to rise.

“This album is inspired by the power of ancient pagan wisdom,” he says. Sakis. “It is a tribute to those who resisted the arrival of Christianity, which destroyed all the values, traditions and knowledge of the ancient world.”
