ROTTING CHRIST just seem to be getting better and better with each and every release. This album marks a new era for ROTTING CHRIST. Gone are the days of the raw, fierce Black Metal that they've been known for. Now, our Greek friends have entered into the realm of Dark Metal. Atmosphere now has just as much of a role as the rest of the instruments. Songs are now much slower, more melodic, and have better structure, in my opinion. In fact, the only song that ties the music with that of past releases is "Archon", which would have fit perfectly on "Non Serviam" or even "Thy Mighty Contract". Necromayhem's vocals are better than ever. The drumming has more variety. Everything just seems so much more…grown up!
So, if you like your Metal dark, heavy, and with a healthy dose of melody/atmosphere, then please buy this album now!
