5.0 out of 5 stars "I'll be the fire that keeps you warm" May 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was thoroughly convinced that the heaviest days of Rotting Christ were long gone. But, much like the rebirth of Testament with their album "Demonic," Rotting Christ has reached back and re-established their brutal Metal attack. This time, however, the production is more polished. The music here has all the gothic ambience they have shown from more recent albums mixed with even more excellent guitar work and a much more agressive rhythm section carving a swath of diabolical attitude. Up until the release of "Khronos 666," my favorite Rotting Christ album was "Thy Mighty Contract" with its astonishingly evil texture and audio presence. Listening to that album in the dark makes me feel like some stygian Thing with black, leathery wings is watching me with malevolent intentions. I still prefer "Thy Mighty Contract" over any of the Rotting Christ albums I own, but "Khronos 666" is right on the heels of that seminal Black Metal masterpiece. Another factor that leads me to believe that this album is undeniably excellent is that with each spin of the CD I am discovering more and more detail. The drumming, in particular, is more impressive each time I encounter this darkly alluring music. This is certainly "a welcome reverse shift in direction." May this darkness embrace you.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Art Of Khronos December 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Rotting Christ are an amazing band. For those of you who are not familiar with this band, don't dismiss it as a band trying to sell and make news with their controversial name. Their name does not do this band justice. Maybe it's what they were trying to do when they first started, but that was 16 years ago, they have matured and their music developed so much since then. The band is amazingly talented and they trully play beautiful music.
With this album they show us their more aggressive side, which I must add, is not as good. It is overall a much more heavy album than what we are used to from Rotting Christ. Their previous albums, "A Dead Poem", and "Sleep Of Angels", are much more melodic and tranquil than this one, however, this album has plenty of good songs, some resembling their previous work.
"If It Ends Tomorrow" and "My Sacred Path" are very good tracks. The guitars play a major role yet they seem to be kept in the background. The sound in this album is very full, and dispite what these other reviewers said, the production is very good, these reviewers don't know what they are talking about. They make it sound like it was recorded in their garage or something, c'mon be serious, and get informed before reviewing an album. My favourite song in this album is "Art Of Sin", it possesses an amazing riff that few bands can come up with. "Khronos" is another strong track, so are "Fateless", and "Glory Of Sadness".
The reason I gave this album a 4 star review is that even if this album has too many songs that are mediocre (tracks like "Aeternus", "Law Of the Serpent", "You Are I", and even "Thou Art Blind") Rotting Christ still manages to get me hooked to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great agressive shocker January 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was initially a little shocked when I first got this album. However, it has possibly grown on me more than any of their other albums, and it is the one I always go back to first.
I loved their previous effort (Sleep of the Angels), and liked the progression from Dead Poem. I guess I was expecting a continuance of that direction, and was taken off guard. I got over that quickly.
Though this album has a few weak tracks, it is possibly more diverse than the average Rotting Christ album. The best songs make up for any minor shortcomings: Aeternatus, Khronos, Thou Art Blind, Art of Sin, etc. Aeternatus and Khronos are probably my two favorites, yet probably the most opposite on the album. There is also a great cover of Current 93's: Lucifer Over London.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best metal albums of all time. January 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I own all of the Rotting Christ albums and they are all great. I believe Khronos happens to be their greatest achievement thus far. I was wondering how they would top the mighty Sleep Of The Angels. Khronos is all it is cracked up to be. Trust me. They have indeed gone back to their blacker roots while at the same time keeping the atmosphere of the recent albums. If you are a Rotting Christ fan I don't know how you couldn't love this album. If you haven't heard Rotting Christ before, this is the perfect album to start with. I believe the best metal albums should have 2 key elements: brutality and melody. Khronos is a perfect example of this.

thing. Such a misleading name for such a quality band. The rotting ones look and try their absolute hardest to let you know that they sit right next to Lucifer at the dinner table, but it really shouldn't matter. Upside down crosses and cheesy pentagrams aside, Khronos is dark and gritty as well as very melodic (ugh, i hate that word... oh well...). Death metal styled vocals don't get to overboard, although sometimes the accent gets in the way (very, very little tho... just nitpicking...). The guitars blend smoothly with the electronics, and of course Tagtren has his nutty little deathy metal guy self all over the production, which is fine by me, cos the guy maybe a wacky little troll, but he's also very talented and a great knob tweeker (although at times, you just have to wonder about him...). The bottom line here is don't be offended by the name, packaging art or fashion... it looks blasphemous, but its sleek and gritty, growly and musical, well suited for the mature death/black metal lover in all of us... and hey, you can't be offended by a "black metal" keyboardist named George... can you? Well, I guess if you really try. Put this in the Dark Tranquility, mid years Tiamat/Sentenced almost In Flames type category if that helps, which I'm sure it doesn't b/c I have no idea what that category is supposed to be called. Just call it GOOD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Rotting Christ album
I gave it 4 stars to be objective, but I'm my heart it's 5 stars.

It's a bit underrated compared to Non Serviam, Triarchy of the Lost Lovers, A Dead Poem and Theogonia,... Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars bland and boring
This is a cd that really shouldnt have been released. I don't much care for rotting christ at all, and this album is proof of why. Its boring, uninspired [junk]. stay away from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great
This cd rocks. Every song is great. Sure the sound is a little bad but the heavyness and poetry evens the score.
