TOO SAFE,YOU'VE GOT TO BE JOKING!
THIS INCREDIBLE RECORD HAS EVEN MORE DEPTH THAN THEOGONIA AND I WOULD ALSO SAY IT IS HEAVIER AS WELL,OVERALL.
ALSO INCORPORATING MORE TRADITIONAL GREEK ELEMENTS.
MY ONLY SLIGHT COMPLAINT IS THAT I WISH SAKIS CONTRIBUTED SOME VOCALS TO THE DIAMANDA GALAS COVER ON THE LAST TRACK,BUT EVEN STILL,WHAT A MAGNIFICENT HAUNTING CONCLUSION TO THIS INCREDIBLE WORK.

AMAZING STUFF AND EQUALLY AMAZING ARTWORK AS WELL.

This cd has 11 tracks 50 Min. This is a "must have" CD! This band is very orginal in that they incorporate their Greek musical heritage into the tracks. I really like tracks 3, 4, 8. However all tracks are stand alone great! I have 2 other CD's by this group. Sakis the lead singer and composer of the songs has created a very powerful CD and his vocals and guitar playing are excellent.

I really have no idea who this band is, and the small bio tells me nothing of them....I kid of course. Only lame people do not know of Rotting Christ and their awesome twist on black metal - although can it really be called that at this point? This album is the latest in a long line of quality albums from the band. Pick it up if you like good music. If you don't, just buy generic black or death metal band #3450 and skip this.

With Aealo I was expecting the same craziness of Black Metal like from Theogonia but to me they went south with the production the vocals have no feeling the music is just dead and there really is no atmosphere like Theogonia had its a loss of words cause this albums blows.

Recommend to anyone but if you like Theogonia you wont get the same type of music with this album.

I've been looking forward to this album since Rotting Christ released their masterpiece Theogonia in 2007. If this were any other band or if they had released any record other than Theogonia, I'd give this album five stars without any hesitation. As it is, I had to dig deep to even give this four stars. Sadly, Aealo just isn't as good as its predecessor. What Rotting Christ needed to do was take some risks. Trying to recreate your masterpiece never works. If you took the songs from Aealo and mixed them in with Theogonia, you'd barely even notice the difference. The only thing that makes this a bad thing is that I've been listening to Theogonia for three years: it was amazing then and now, but to rehash that album comes across as lazy. What made it so refreshing in 2007 is stale in 2010. I mean, there are songs on Aealo with nearly the same song structure as songs on Theogonia, not to mention cords.

While any band would be proud to have songs like Demonon Vrosis or ...Pir Threontai in its catalogue, it's just too much of a good thing for Rotting Christ. My advice: next time, try a different two cords.

Sadly, I think this one is only for people that want to "collect the whole set."

"Sanctus Diavolos" it is NOT. I have every album made by Rotting Christ and this one is seriously my least favorite. I'm not sure how much it will ever get played. (I'm not even sure what I've done with it.) That's a shame because I really do think they're a great band. They just got it wrong with this one IMO. It just lacks the power/intensity, oh...and metal...of their previous work. Sorry, just not impressed with this one.

There's just too much of a "Greek tragedy/opera" thing going on for my liking. I can deal with the tribal drums...I can deal with SOME of the chanting but there's just too much of it to call this a Rotting Christ album. Frankly it sounds a bit more like they were "guest" musicians on somebody ELSES album. I suppose if I ignore/skip a few of the songs it might sound better.

Some of the real Rotting Christ manages to sneak in once in a while...which is what saved it from a 1 star review. But I have to say "Nekron Iahes..." is murderously annoying. I'm just glad it's only a minute long. I doubt I'll ever listen to that one again. Likewise, "Orders from the Dead" is almost laughable IMO. Well, OK, perhaps "almost" isn't quite right. It's one of those things your hear and then want to ask, "You bumped your head how hard..?" Yeah, yeah...the world is going up in flames. We get it already. Unfortunately when that song ends you find yourself thinking..."Wha..?" and wanting more. Not more of this but more of what you expected from a Rotting Christ album.

I just hope this isn't a sign of things to come and that their next release will see them getting back to what they do best.

I have to say that this album is not like their masterpiece theogonioa but it is very good. Its not classic black metal. It has some <<Greek >> elements and with the combination of metal the result is very good. It is a unigue album. I can descreibe this album as Greek black metal with tribal elements and some female vocals. I dont know if it is a good album for all black metal fans but i dont care since i like it very much . I hope they continue to relese albums like this and Theogonia.
