Rotting Christ Aealo on Limited Edition 180g 2LP 

It is common knowledge that a masterpiece can hardly be surpassed. Yet Rotting Christ performed this close to impossible feat in February 2010 with their tenth full-length album, Aealo which managed to strengthen all the features that made its predecessor Theogonia (2007) so glorious. The Greeks drew heavily from their country’s ancient heritage and then went to translate this rich history into the universal language of metal. 

Their distinct sound and riffing was transformed by traditional female lamenting choirs and ancient reed pipes as well as folkloristic melodies and rhythms into something fresh and fascinating. Rotting Christ invoked their brotherhood in spirit with equally individualist groups like Primordial. This bond was illustrated by a stunning guest performance of the Irish band’s vocalist Alan A. Nemtheanga, while a no less amazing contribution came from Greek-American diva extreme Diamanda Galas in a cover version of her own “Orders from the Dead” song.

Aealo was a musical conjuration of the spirit of the past. The inner eye witnessed Homer’s heroes clad in golden armour performing mythical feats before the gates of mighty Troy. It saw that host of Greek freemen among them those 300 Spartans under king Leonidas holding out against a far superior force of Persian invaders. The very ground seemed to shake with Alexander the Great marching his victorious Macedonian phalanxes as far as India. It was such feelings that Sakis evoked within the concept of Aealo

He portrayed the loneliness of a warrior, his raging anger, sad grief and final despair, which were captured in the atmosphere and essence of this album. Far from delivering an exercise in exuberant patriotism and false heroism, Rotting Christ touched the universal sorrow behind human warfare, when brother fights brother and neighbor turns against neighbor.

Rotting Christ's most recent trio of records on Season of Mist - Theogonia (2007), Aealo (2010) and Kata Tom Daimona Eaytoy (2013) - are now being offered on glorious 180-gram vinyl for North American fans.
