ROTTING CHRIST To Release Under Our Black Cult 5CD, 72-Page Book Set In July; Video Trailer

Marking 30 years of the band, Greek extreme metal veterans Rotting Christ will release Under Our Black Cult, a deluxe 5CD, 72-page book-set charting their early years. Due for release on July 6th via Peaceville, the set also includes a limited hand-signed certificate from Sakis ‘Necromayhem’ Tolis (while stocks last). Pre-order here, and watch a video trailer below.

Written by The Cult Never Dies author Dayal Patterson, the book chronicles the early years of Rotting Christ from its grindcore origins to the its status as masters of occult hellenic black metal. It features interviews with the band, plus luminaries from the black metal and underground scenes, and friends such as Behemoth’s Nergal, Moonspell’s Fernando Ribeiro and more.

The 5 audio discs contain a comprehensive collection of early works including demos, rarities, live material,  the classic Passage To Arcturo MLP, and the Thy Mighty Contract and Non Serviam albums. All show why Rotting Christ has sustained a three-decade legacy on the back of its inspirational beginnings.
