The Skinny: Black metal masters Rotting Christ have debuted a new song off of Κata Τon ΔΑimona Εaytoy (“Do What Thou Wilt”). The opening track, “In Yumen – Xibalba” is streaming now at the Season of Mist Youtube page – listen to the annihilating track today!

Κata Τon ΔΑimona Εaytoy (“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. Κata Τon ΔΑimona Εaytoy 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. It’s a multinational album; it is about underworld Gods inspired by different ancient cultures.”
