Rotting Christ have stood the test of time. While their name has caused plenty of gatekeepers to clutch their pearls, Sakis Tolis and has brother Themis have risen from Greece’s blackened catacombs to one of metal’s most formidable bands. 

This year, Rotting Christ are celebrating 35 years of evil excellence with their 14th album. ΠΡΟ ΧΡΙΣΤΟΥ (“Pro Xristoy”) is bound to hold a revered place in the band’s heretical history. Always true to their name, with “Pro Xristoy” (“Before Christ”), the band pay tribute to the last of the Pagan kings by offering up more towering, gothic, melodic black metal. 

In the echoes of heritage emerges “Like Father, Like Son” – a hymn that resonates with the timeless message of pride, honor, and the indomitable spirit of Rotting Christ. The first single off “Pro Xristoy” presents a tale of the profound wisdom of a father’s legacy, a powerful testament to passion, love, and faith. Haunting whispers of a departed father linger, shaping the identity of the son who walks in his shadow.

Incredibly catchy riffs, supplemented by Themis‘ steadfast drumming style create an anthem that stands through the ages. It’s impossible not to chant along to Sakis‘ fierce delivery during the song’s emblematic chorus, which stays embedded in your memory long after the final note rings out. Watch the music video below.

Now that Rotting Christ are closing in on four decades, some followers might’ve wondered if there was any sacred ground left for them to conquer. But “Pro Xristoy” is a testament to a band that’s still on the rise.     

“This album was inspired by the might of ancient pagan wisdom”, says Sakis. “It’s a tribute to those who resisted the coming of Christianity, which destroyed all the values, traditions, and knowledge of the ancient world”.
