Rotting Christ - Album Details Revealed


Original news, posted on 28.11.2009

Set for a February 15th release, Rotting Christ's upcoming album is entitled Aealo, correlatively with the band's will to delve deeper than ever before into their Greek roots.

Frontman Sakis explains: "Aealo is the transcription of the ancient Greek word ΕΑΛΩ into the Latin alphabet. It means thrashing, catastrophe or destruction and reflects the musical and lyrical content of the album. The concept of Aealo deals with the feelings of a warrior during a battle, therefore the album's title bears this sense of anger, fear and grief."

The CD was recorded at Lunatach Studios in Katerini, Greece and will feature guest appearances by Greek-American vocalist Diamanda Galas and Primordial frontman Alan A. Nemtheanga.

Aealo will be released in the US on February 23.


UPDATE

The release of Rotting Christ's eleventh offering Aealo is just two more months ahead.

Frontman Sakis comments on the artwork: "We are totally satisfied to have collaborated once more with Season of Mist's graphic designer Jérôme for the Aealo cover and lay-out. We are really impressed how well Jérôme managed to express our new album's concept on a piece of paper. The weird, the fearful, the furious feelings of a soldier during a battle are there... in front of your eyes!"

That didn't sound convincing.

However, I'm looking forward to hear this album as well. The last two were great, I hope this one will be as good as those. I'm actually more concerned about the music, not the warrior or Latin alphabet...

Yeah... His translation was at least misleading. "Εάλω" means "...has fallen" and it refers to the famous quote "Η Πόλις εάλω" (the City has fallen) from the fall of Constantinople.

Anyway, you're right. Let's stick to the music everybody. It's gonna be a blast.

You who will come to the surface
From the flood that's overwhelmed us and drowned us all
Must think, when you speak of our weakness in times of darkness
That you've not had to face
