On August 21, 2015, Season of Mist will release a live double-album by Rotting Christ entitled Lucifer Over Athens. It was recorded in the band’s home city in December 2013, and it represents a wonderful summing up of this influential Hellenic black metal band’s long and triumphant career to date. Today we’re proud to help premiere from the album the live performance of “Athanatoi Este“.

There are precious few extreme metal bands who have persisted and flourished for as long a span of years as Rotting Christ. Over their nearly three decades of creating music, they have released consistently strong albums while resisting the temptation to simply rehash old glories. They have evolved and progressed, but without ever damping the Luciferian flame that burns fiercely in their songs. They earned their respect long ago, but they seem not to take that for granted — and they continue earning it with each passing year.



The performance of “Athanatoi Este” that you’re about to hear displays the passion that has kept Rotting Christ at the forefront of heavy metal for such a long time. The recording captures the energy of the band on stage, enlivened by Sakis‘ feral snarl and the rhythmic clapping of the audience. It’s anchored by a powerful low-end sound, and perhaps needless to say, this song is a truly massive headbanger. In nutshell, it’s a really tempting teaser for a landmark album.

Lucifer Over Athens can be pre-ordered HERE, in a 3-LP collector’s edition or as a double-CD digipack. The track list for the album follows our stream of “Athanatoi Este”. Rotting Christ can be found on Facebook via this link.
