This album feels from the very beginnning like a dark sojourn through gothic realms home to unspeakable denizens of evil.

Rotting Christ always a great mood setting melodic dark metal band.

I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of this album, and at the same time curious to see what effects on the band's sound the departures of George(Keyboards) and Kostas(Guitars) would have. The band is now a three-piece, with Frontman, founder, and Metal God Sakis now manning the keyboards in addition to excelling on guitars and vocals. This album is unique in that the choral pieces are now provided by a live choir as opposed to samples, and this delivers a much more visceral impact. Overall, this album has many more Gothic touches than Khronos or Genesis, and it is replete with tempo changes and melodic bridges over the framework of hell-raising black metal. As usual, Andreas(Bass) and Themis(Drums) do a stellar job of providing bone-jarring rhythms and ear-punishing beats. The guitars range from tight, speedy riffs to slower, more melodic pieces, although the dual-guitar harmonies are fewer than on the previous two releases. Sakis' vocals are more varied, ranging from his trademark black-metal screech to semi-clean "doom" vocals to an eerie whisper. This album really presents a nice cross-section of the band's history and progressions: The hard-hitting guitar frenzy of "Thy Mighty Contract", the beautiful midpaced melody of "Triarchy of the Lost Lovers", the moody Gothic touches of "A Dead Poem", and the industrial-tinged agression of the "Khronos" and "Genesis" period. However, even though all of these elements can be distinguished within this release, they are all also seamlessly melded together into a new beast that progresses into new dimensions while at the same time keeps itself firmly rooted in its origins. This is a complex, multi-layered record that definitely benefits from repeated listenings.Read more ›

4.5 stars. This is one of those fine albums that gets better with more spins, the intricate songwriting and splendid band interplay shining through some dense production that sounds better the louder it is played. This album feels from the very beginnning like a dark sojourn through gothic realms home to unspeakable denizens of evil. For all the darkness there is a fluid mix of sound, courtesy of the now legendary Fredrik Nordstrom, that encompasses everything in a shroud of excellence. There is the occasional moment on this CD that sounds like a retread of former ideas combined, but overall this is yet another solid and highly anticipated release from one of the most reliable and consistent Metal bands in the world. I waited eagerly for over six months for this superb album to grace American shores and I am happy to say it was definately worth the wait. By the time "Serve in Heaven" explodes with a phenomenal lead guitar riff, those not headbanging will surely be slain. As far as comparisons to their other albums...think "Khronos 666" with even more Gothic tendencies and soundscapes. Banish the light and crank your stereo up...for the Greeks have returned!

Format: Audio CD
After a somewhat mixed bag with "Genesis", Greece' most famous metal band is back with something far more experimental and intriguing, almost a dedication to everything they did since the demo 'Satanus Tedeum' in 1989 when each band member was just 17 years old.

As opposed to the standard genre-keyboard, they have a Live Choir mixed with Industrial/Tape samples. But everything is evened out. Songs like "Tyrannical" and "You My Cross" are intense, and almost have the sonic style of now-defunct but legendary nearbys Septic Flesh. "Serve In Heaven" and "Shades of Evil" have a more old-school German thrashy feel to them; and last but not least, some good brooding and gloomy songs - something the band was always known for - in "Doctrine" and the doom/violin instrumental "Sanctimonius".

This isn't classic RC ("Thy Mighty Contract" stands as their best, if not the best album in Black Metal) but it's still very good. Most European extreme metal groups are either no longer metal or disbanded, and it's a refresh to realize that one of the innovators are sticking to what they've been doing and inspiring for almost 20 years.

Rotting Christ is a unique black metal band. they incorporate melody into their sound. three other BM bands that are melodic that come to mind are Dimmu Borgir, Borknagar, and Kovenant, but this is about Rotting Christ. they have a photo in this album that isn't corny like many black metal bands have been accused of. they are one of several black metal bands that associate themselves with culture in addition to speedy riffs. I thoroughly enjoyed this album and I hope to hear more from them.

I've been a fan of Rotting Christ for 3 yrs and own all their cd's. Sanctus Diavolos out does theirlast cd. This cd has a female choir, don't worry, it adds atmosphere to the songs in a good way. Theyadd various sound samples along here and there. All in all, I keep coming back to this cd, a verysatisfying listening experience if you like RottingChrist.

Rotting Christ always a great mood setting melodic dark metal band. I have to say this album is far superior to anything they done and I always though Triarchy of the Lost Lovers was their best. Well the changed that for me. This album has so much experimenting on it that it's not funny. They added some dark wave ambient noise qualities to this album. Just listen to Tyrannical for instance. The ambient bass beats are just down right weird. ON Visions of a Blind order we has some weird screeching sound. It's like the album is possessed or something. I love it. I really hope they do this on future releases. Actually alot of black metal bands are doing stuff like this now days. We had Mayhem experiment some. Then of course we have the strange Arcturus with their space metal opera sounds. Then Samael has incorporated techno into their sound. However unlike some of these band Rotting Christ has not entirely morphed into a avant gard blackened industrial band. They only use the sounds to emphisize their music and never letting it fully consume the basic quality of the music. That is the melodic hypnotic guitar sounds Sakis always performes. This album sounds more like a soundtrack for some exorcisim movie. I say this rivals Behemoth's Demigod album. Yet another album that sounds like a soundtrack to some Egyptian or Roman war movie.
