Grind (First Demos), Black (early), Black/Gothic from Greece
Rotting Christ their eleventh offering, Aealo, recorded on Mount Olympus, the seat of Zeus and the ancient Gods. Aealo, an album brimming with Greek nationalistic overtones and nods to ancient Hellenic culture, shows Rotting Christ once again drifting away from the harsher tones of black metal. A strong progressive element is present on Aealo, along with melodic touches appearing in the form of clean female vocals from a Greek choir from the Ipiros region. Features such legends as Diamanda Galas, Alen A. Nemtheanga (Primordial) and Magus Wampyr Daoloth (Necromantia).
