The new album personifies the legendary Greek band’s profound and majestic metal, which honors both their Greek heritage as well as ancient cultures worldwide. Furthermore, the band embellishes their signature dark metal on KATA TON DAIMONA EAYTOY (Do What Thou Wilt) with Sumerian and Incan poetry and as well as flourishes from Romanian folk song, and lyrics inspired by tales of undead Russian water spirits, Voodoo, Zoroastrianism and other sources.
“I’m very satisfied with this new album. I find It is very important for me to have a unique sound, (ROTTING CHRIST) doesn’t want to sound like anyone else. You are going to read a lot of different lyrics in different languages-strange and ancient languages; it’s something different…”
ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ (Do What Thou Wilt), set for a North American release on March 5, will be available 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.
