During 2000 Rotting Christ entered the studio to record "Khronos", one of the darkest albums of this wonderful band, produced by Necromayhem (Sakis Tolis) and Peter Tagtgren at his Abyss Studios in Sweden. "Khronos" is a very complex and various-sounding album since Rotting Christ flirt with many soundscapes that seem to be different, yet they succeed in harmonizing them wonderfully together. The black metal feeling of their first cult releases is present along with the evil aesthetic of those early years of the band, the heavy metal structure of some compositions refers to their previous releases, "A Dead Poem" and "Sleep of the Angels", but sounding way darker and in the air you can sense several influences of the dark wave scene of the 80s. The darkness that this album exudes is quite obvious even by a single stare at its cover (made by Septic Flesh's Spiros Antoniou ) where lies the beauty of the defiled crucified Christ, picture of what the name of the band means, a portrait of abysmal beauty, Christ in decomposition, Rotting Christů

Rating: 9 Dark, melodic, melancholic. The best RC album. 'If It Ends Tomorrow' and 'Art Of Sin' are one of their best songs.

Rating: 8 A great eight! "if it ends tomorrow" and "thou art blind" are my personal favs followed by "my sacred path"!

Rating: 7 Overlong. I get pretty bored. There are some standouts, but Lucifer Over London is probably the worst song they have ever written.

Well, Lucifer Over London is a cover from Current 93... but I think it's awesome, completely transformed the song to fit effectively the RC formula.

That explains a lot. I am not as learned in the background of these albums as the many others I listen to.
