Formed in 1979 in Los Angeles, Christian Death was one of the most influential bands in the American Goth and Deathrockscenes. The
overblown stage persona and lyrical content of singer Rozz Williams were matched by the sometimes dirgey butoften-catchy guitar work of ex-
Adolescents auteur Rikk Agnew.
Internal disputes and legal wrangling have to led the bizarre situation of several different bands all claiming the name "ChristianDeath"; often,
bands playing under this title have featured no original members of the group. The above description appliesexclusively to the original iteration
of the band, featuring Rozz on vocals.
