ROTTING CHRIST have kicked off the second leg of their extensive headlining European tour. The “Rituals 2017” tour sees ROTTING CHRIST traveling throughout the year, hitting 17 countries before concluding on Oct. 6. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
ROTTING CHRIST are touring in support of the band’s new album, ‘Rituals’. The band, regarded 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. ROTTING CHRIST previously landed the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #14 for the release ‘Rituals’.
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.
Updated ROTTING CHRIST news and tour information will be made available through the Season of Mist website.
