ROTTING CHRIST - Abyssic Black Metal (Gatefold Sleeve) (2LP)


Greek black metal legends Rotting Christ formed in 1988, with their early demo recordings containing strong grindcore elements as the band quickly evolved their style into something altogether darker. Spearheaded by brothers Sakis & Themis Tolis, Rotting Christ have remained one of the strongest and most respected forces in the black metal scene since their debut release 'Passage of Arcturo'. Their legacy towards greatness was cemented even further by the genre classic follow-up 'Thy Mighty Contract', helping to firmly establish the Greek scene as being among the most essential black metal movements of the early 90's.

'Abyssic Black Metal' compiles the early works of the band, from the more grind-laced early recordings of a band finding their own direction, plus the all-time classic 'Satanas Tedeum' release which paved the way for the band's melodic and atmospheric style of black metal, along with the early obscure EPs. The collection also notably features the 1995 promo release, containing raw stripped-down renditions of tracks to feature on the band's eventual third full-length release, 'Triarchy of the Lost Lovers'.

This vinyl edition of 'Abyssic Black Metal' marks the 30th anniversary of Rotting Christ and is presented on double gatefold vinyl, containing rare cover art from the early era of the band.
