ROTTING CHRIST: Premier new video
Black metal masters ROTTING CHRIST streaming a video for the song “666” off their latest album, ‘ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ’ (“Do What Thou Wilt”). The video is streaming at Metal Injection.
‘Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy’ means “Do What Thou Wilt” and links ROTTING CHRIST to their heritage as pioneers of black metal. From underground heroes to international headliner status, the Greek band brings together elements from death, heavy and gothic metal with a rich native heritage element without ever betraying their black roots. ‘Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy’ takes this progression even further as ROTTING CHRIST forges their own sound, and augment it with female vocals, and a wide array of instrumentation. Inspired by ancient cultures around the globe, ‘Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy’ sees ROTTING CHRIST employ poetry from the Sumerians and Incas as well as a Romanian folk song, the tale of an undead Russian water spirit, Voodoo, Zoroastrianism and other sources.
Founder/Guitarist/Frontman Sakis Tolis revealed in an interview with MetalUnderground.com: “It took me more than a year to get the idea of the album… Being the only composer of the band I have to say that I take the composition process very seriously. For me its a kind of meditation and this is what I am doing when its time to start writing some music. This is something very esoteric and I really search myself before I grasp the guitar and to start writing a song. I must feel vibrations, I must explore hidden anxieties that want to see the light before I come up with something new. So when I do I go ahead and reveal something new. If I will ever wake up and realize that has nothing new to say then I will quit with the band as I really do not want to be one of those old bands that release albums only to get tours or to cash some money. ”
‘ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ’ (‘Do What Thou Wilt’) was released on March 5th, 2013. ‘ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ’ (‘Do What Thou Wilt’) is available as a CD, double gate-fold Lp (available in color), and a limited edition Digibox including a pendant in a velvet bag, a flag, and a Digipak CD with the bonus track “Welcome to Hel”. A full stream of the record can be found at the ROTTING CHRIST Bandcamp page.
