ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ (Do What Thou Wilt) proves to be ROTTING CHRIST’s darkest output to date, and links the band 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 element that never betrays their dark roots. The album takes this progression even further as ROTTING CHRIST forge their own sound, and augment it with female vocals, and a wide array of instrumentation. Their long years of composing and experience show unwavering confidence and maturity.
“It is an album that I have been working on for more than a year. It was recorded in Athens and mixed in Sweden with Jens Bogren (AMON AMARTH, OPETH, KATATONIA). I came up with our darkest outcome ever. It’s an interesting album, very apocryphal. Its a multinational album; it is about underworld Gods inspired by different ancient cultures.”
ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ (Do What Thou Wilt) is set for a North American release on March 5, as a CD, double gate-fold LP, 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.
