ROTTING CHRIST has been the biggest exhibition of Greek Black Metal. The band has been on a high with their new album- Rituals that released worldwide via Season Of Mist earlier this year. Rituals can be easily passed on as their most atmospheric release, enthralling its listeners with their class of pounding Black Metal.
Today we are premiereing the track Apage Satana, taken from their album Rituals. The track initiates with choral chants that creates a mysterious void, commemorating with the drums that is evocative of tribal grooves that is blessed with spectral voices in the background that adds to the comprehensive tone. The track peaks towards the end, often going along with the video. It ends on a high note, paving way for more atmospheric arrangements. The guitar tone is particularly impressive. It’s fierce, it’s aggressive, it’s mesmerizing.
The video depicts a woman in the woods performing rituals on a dead man (Sakis), blinded by faith. There’s a mysterious character who hymns throughout creating a mystic force inflicted on the dead body. A spirit arises during the ritual and all that’s left is a burning pyre, fading out. The video is a portal into a classic horror film that will leave the viewers yearning for more!
