Rotting Christ - Khronos
The Greeks with the nice and peaceful name indeed are at longplayer number seven by now and almost since their founding they are criticised, if for different reasons. That the monicker is good for some controversy is almost logic, but the criticism is very often aiming at the fact that their sound had been subject to continuous alteration over the years, and often into a direction that was successful at that time...

"Khronos" is no exception to that again, because, just like other bands, the Gothic Metal of the predecessor "Sleep Of The Angels" has turned darker and a good lot heavier again, the hard and fast Black Metal with keyboards, courtesy of the opening "Thou Art Blind" even let's you take another surprised look onto the cover, if you indeed have ROTTING CHRIST in your player.

But the second track "If It Ends Tomorrow" is a good example for the album: between Gothic and Black Metal, a good lot heavier than before, yet not as sovereign like between "Triarchy Of The Lost Lovers" and "Sleep Of The Angels", but a little aimless and with only little flow within the whole album, the very varied title-track is the exception there.

What I want to say with all of this is that they have taken one step back in evolution instead of forward and somehow have tangled themselves in the reins of an already overcrowded market.
