Greek metal masters ROTTING CHRIST have released the first video in support of their latest album, ‘Rituals’. The clip for the track “For A Voice Like Thunder” features guest vocals by Nick Holmes (PARADISE LOST), and is streaming here.
Regarding the video, ROTTING CHRIST mastermind Sakis Tolis comments:
“Dear all, we present to you our first official lyric video in support of our latest album ‘Rituals’ with pride. This song has been inspired by the poetry of William Blake and contains long forgotten but nonetheless very meaningful words, which influenced us during our writing sessions. Hopefully you will enjoy ‘For A Voice Like Thunder’ as much as we do!”
ROTTING CHRIST recently landed the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, at #14 for the release of ‘Rituals’. The band, hailed as “one of the best guitar-riff-writing bands out there to date” (No Clean Singing), is streaming ‘Rituals’ in full here..
The band’s twelfth studio album, ‘Rituals’ is regarded as “singular and unique a contribution to the development of metal as anything on the table.” (Kevin Stewart Panko, Metal Injection) and is available across multiple formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

For almost 30 years, ROTTING CHRIST have blazed a trail for the black metal genre to follow. From their primitive early material through to 2012’s epic ‘Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy’, their pioneering spirit has been a flame of inspiration in an increasingly reductive genre. Now the renowned band return with new album ‘Rituals’, a diverse collection of new songs influenced by rites and myths from all around the globe. ‘Rituals’ highlights their unique power and magic, and is the darkest and most personal-sounding ROTTING CHRIST album to date. As ‘Rituals’ illustrates, there is a reason that ROTTING CHRIST are an international heavy metal institution.
