Another album that I briefly wrote about a while back is approaching its official release date. Rituals by Rotting Christ will release on February 12th, 2016, and is still available to preorder from Season of Mist in the meantime. You know how a great deal of established and older bands stick to their stylistic guns, especially now that the crisis of the 1990s is but a dim memory? Rotting Christ is amongst them; they’ve continued their traditional-black-etc fusion ways as hinted at on their earliest albums and established, at the very latest, on Triarchy of the Lost Lovers. If this album fails to be of any value, you’ll at least have Thy Mighty Contract as a fallback.

One thought on “Rotting Christ streaming the entirety of Rituals”
I actually liked their gothic rock approach in the late nineties and early 2000 on albums like A Dead Poem and Sleep of the Angels, which are definitely not metal but quite good as rock albums. The mishmash of influences that started with Theogonia, however, reveals that they ran out of ideas, which is quite sad, since the musicians are talented and their live shows are really enjoyable.
