The 11th Rotting Christ album picks up from where Aealo stopped and further strengthens the testament of its predecessor with intense Bathory driven, majestic goth/folk/black metal. Tolis brothers are in terrific shape!!
On their 11th album, Kata..something I can't pronounce in Greek, Rotting Christ continue where they left off on their previous album, Aealo by continuing to push their greek influenced folk tinged melodic black metal. Except this time that sound is stream lined ten fold and the influence is more subtle, which is a nice change for these Greeks keeping their sound from stagnating. This fresh new turn plus some truly well written songs makes Kata a must hear album of 2013. Though the album does lag in the middle with the track Cine Ibusta really doing more harm than good it is still an all around amazing feat for these Greeks proving that their brand of melodic black metal is still some of the best in the genre. Best Songs: In Yumen - Xibalba, Iwa Voodoo, and 666.
Bland and uninteresting, 2013 is yet to provide a black metal album that can be enjoyed. Also it does not help that there are annoying as shit goth sections left right and center and stupid moans in the background constantly.
