Rotting Christ is a Greek melodic black metal band formed in Athens, Attica, Greece in 1987. They are noted for being one of the first black metal bands within this region. During their rehearsal era in the late 1980s, the band began as grindcore, but quickly shifted to playing black metal with a distinctive touch.
Despite the name, the band's traditional lyrical themes involving evil and occultism has evolved into a more "mystic" path, and they have modified their musical direction on each album Read more on Last.fm

Sunday Slaylist: Bloodstock Open Air 2014

August 3rd, 2014

Bloodstock Open Air 2014 Sunday Slaylist Thrash Hits

There’s less than a week to go until the Midlands once again plays host to the UK’s biggest outdoor unabashed metal festival. Make no mistake – Bloodstock Open Air carries no caveats about being a “rock” festival. It is about being the heaviest fully-camping festival the UK has to offer, and their 2014 line-up – stuffed to the guts with death, black, and extreme metal – sets the festival apart from the larger Download and Sonisphere Festivals. That’s not a bad thing – a little variety goes a long way in the saturated UK festival market – so naturally this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist is all about the Bloodstock 2014 line-up.

We’re going to be heading up to Leeds University in force come 02 November, but until then, we’ve put together a Sunday Spotify Slaylist to hype us up for what’s (once again) one of the best one-dayer metal fest line-ups the UK has ever seen.

For all the black metal bands happy to stand still, there are those resolved to change with every album, to never repeat themselves and constantly give you something new. That doesn’t always guarantee quality – evolution comes with both higher risks and potentially higher rewards. Rotting Christ are a classic example.

Sunday Slaylist: The New Black (Metal)

March 4th, 2012

All this week, Tom Dare has been guiding you through how Black Metal has evolved over the course of the last two decades (check out parts one, two, three and four if you haven’t already). Now, as the week draws to a close, we’ve asked Tom to put together the songs that have made it happen into a Spotify Slaylist, and in doing to to lovingly cobble them together in an order that somehow tries to make sense of the wildly differing styles that constitute the genre these days. Wish him luck….

Greek titans Rotting Christ – who’s name still remains the envy of every blasphemous band that wishes they’d thought of it first – had something to live up to with this, their tenth album. Their previous outing, Theogonia in 2007, was one of those albums – an astonishing record that is utterly brilliant from start to finish. The expectations were extraordinarily high. Perhaps inevitably, they’ve not quite managed to match them.

First names announced for Damnation Festival 2009

April 8th, 2009

Why didn’t Thrash Hits didn’t go to Damnation Festival last year? We can only assume we were struck down with a temporary case of mental idiocy, seeing as Carcass and Cathedral were headlining. Either that or we couldn’t find it in ourselves to drag ourselves allthe way to Leeds.

We’re not going to make the same mistake this year though – especially since the initial line-up announcements are a bit tasty.
