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.

Founder/Guitarist/Frontman, Sakis Tolis revealed in an interview with Soundshock.com:

 

“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…”

IMPERIUM DEKADENZ Reveal Album Details

Season of Mist, French independent label for Metal and Rock

Black metal masters IMPERIUM DEKADENZ revealed the cover art for their forthcoming album, titled Meadows of Nostalgia.

IMPERIUM DEKADENZ rises from Germany‘s Black Forest and delivers unto us the epic new album. A black metal album in the classic sense; a desolate, morose journey from start-to-finish that transports the listener out into another place and time. Haunting, melodic guitars and passages of melancholy and despair build each song to new heights as IMPERIUM DEKADENZ craft black metal fused with nods to the old school into a sound they can call their own.

About the cover, the band said,

“A traveling salesman, marked by a hard life, wanders lost in his thoughts over the high passes of the Black Forest. Despite all, he follows his path without hesitation through harsh landscapes and yet the mountains stand proudly and the epic scenery might even be called romantic. This cover reflects all the emotions, impressions and facets of Imperium Dekadenz. It is an imperial Black Forest symphony!” 

Meadows of Nostalgia will be available in CD format, and a deluxe double LP that is limited to 250 copies worldwide on March 19 in North America

IMPERIUM DEKADENZ is available for interviews upon request. To speak with the band, please contact Enrique Sagarnaga via email or telephone (215-625-8400). IMPERIUM DEKADENZ news and updates will be made available through the Season of Mist website, and the IMPERIUM DEKADENZ website and Facebook page.

Black metal masters ROTTING CHRIST debuted the opening track, In Yumen – Xibalba from ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ (Do What Thou Wilt)

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.

Regarding the new album, ROTTING CHRIST frontman Sakis Tolis recently revealed in an interview with Kaaoszine

“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.
