Black metal masters ROTTING CHRIST have debuted the title track off of their forthcoming album, 'ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ' (“Do What Thou Wilt”). “Kata Ton Daimona Eaftou” is streaming now at MetalManiacs.com.
'ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ' personifies the legendary Greek band's profound and majestic metal, which honors both their country’s heritage as well as ancient cultures worldwide. On 'ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ', ROTTING CHRIST embellish their signature dark metal with Sumerian and Incan poetry and as well as flourishes from Romanian folk song, and lyrics inspired by tales of undead Russian water spirits, Voodoo, Zoroastrianism and other sources.
Founder/Guitarist/Frontman Sakis Tolis revealed in an interview with Soundshock.com: "I'm very satisfied with this new album. I find it is very important for me to have a unique sound – [ROTTING CHRIST] doesn't want to sound like anyone else. You are going to read a lot of different lyrics in different languages-strange and ancient languages; it's something different..."
'ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ' is set for a North American release on March 5th (March 1st internationally). 'ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ' will be available as a CD, double gatefold LP and a limited edition Digibox including a pendant in a velvet bag, a flag, and a Digipak CD with the bonus track “Welcome to Hel”. All formats, as well as merch items, are available for pre-order on Season of Mist’s e-shop.
In the wake of their forthcoming album's pending release, ROTTING CHRIST was recently featured on the cover of the cult UK metal magazine, Zero Tolerance.
