Rotting Christ formed in 1988. The band's early demo recordings contained Grindcore elements that quickly evolved into something altogether darker. Spearheaded by brothers Sakis and Themis Tolis, Rotting Christ have remained one of the most respected forces in the Black Metal scene since their debut release Passage To Arcturo. The band's legacy was cemented further by the genre classic follow-up Thy Mighty Contract.
Passage To Arcturo was the band’s debut studio offering and was originally released in 1991. Featuring a lo-fi raw take on Black Metal, Rotting Christ also masterfully wove some of their trademark atmosphere and sombre melodies with occult themes to create something altogether unique for the time, with the band over the years becoming one of the enduring premier staples of the whole Black Metal genre.
