ROTTING CHRIST: Thy Mighty Contract LP
(large booklet with lengthy liner notes, 180g vinyl)
The record most responsible for putting Greece on the black metal map is, perhaps paradoxically, both an intriguing slice of history and a timeless piece of music. Thy Mighty Contract remains a hugely significant opus that was influential to a still-forming extreme metal scene and whose sound is tied intrinsically to the era in which it was manifested. Yet equally, this is a work that has aged superbly and still sounds as essential and unique as ever today. Both musically and lyrically, Thy Mighty Contract is rarely straightforward – and is arguably all the better for it, offering layers of meaning and demanding repeated playing. It is a dripping with a myriad of influences, with touches of first wave black metal, doom, death, thrash and heavy metal evident at various points during the album, combining these to create a sound that has never quite been repeated.
This heavyweight vinyl version includes an 8 page booklet with liner notes written by Sakis Tolis and Dayal Patterson of Cult Never Dies, which details the events surrounding the release. The booklet also includes rare photographs, plus thoughts from other long-standing musicians in the scene from bands such as Behemoth, Blasphemy and Aura Noir.
