Rotting Christ: “Aealo”

For more than 20 years, Athens’ Rotting Christ has traversed different directions on the metal path. With its previous release, Theogonia, the group released a striking, original album that fused its dark sound to the ethnic sounds of its ancestors.

Like its predecessor, Aealo features female Benedictine chants, lingual pipes, and a medieval feel. Combined with dueling high-pitched harmonies and powerful guitar work, these new elements highlight an album that’s among the most original metal releases of the year.
