Mastermind Sakis Tolis creates mystical atmospheres by delving deep into ancient secrets and myths from the Sumerians, Incas, Persians and other cultures and incorporating them into his very own blend of melodic black metal. ROTTING CHRIST skillfully vary their highly individual sound with female vocals, piano, bagpipes, horns and by other means while remaining distincly metal, remaining true to the Black Metal roots of their founding in 1987. Indeed, ROTTING CHRIST established themselves firmly in the underground as one of the originators of the second wave of Black Metal. Their debut album Thy Mighty Contract defined greek style of black metal, but the band has been able to move beyond that, while remaining firmly rooted in its own legacy.
