Rotting_Christ Thy_Mighty_Contract Red_Black_double_vinyl
A limited 2LP edition of Rotting Christ's Thy Mighty Contract marking 30 years since its release.
Presented on double red/black vinyl with gatefold sleeve, the second LP contains tracks from the infamous Fuck Christ tour of 1993, which Rotting Christ shared with two other legends of black metal; Blasphemy and Immortal.
Greek black metal legends Rotting Christ formed in 1988, with their early demo recordings containing strong grindcore elements as the band quickly evolved their style into something altogether darker. Spearheaded by brothers Sakis & Themis Tolis, Rotting Christ have remained one of the strongest and most respected forces in the black metal scene since their debut release ‘Passage of Arcturo’. Their legacy towards greatness was cemented even further by the genre classic follow-up ‘Thy Mighty Contract’, helping to firmly establish the Greek scene as being among the most essential black metal movements of the early 90’s.
‘Thy Mighty Contract’ was originally released in 1993 and featured a brutal, yet also melodic and atmospheric approach, incorporating different elements of extreme metal mixed with haunting keys & dark/occult themes. With a clear distinction between their sound and what was appearing in Scandinavia at the time, Rotting Christ were highly influential & revered for forging their own sound while retaining the rawness of the old-school masters such as Celtic Frost and Venom. The band also notably embarked upon the infamous ‘Fuck Christ’ tour in 1993 with then label-mates Blasphemy & Immortal.
