\»Rituals\» — is quite simple and very capacious: New Album Title leaders of the Greek metal scene Rotting Christ. The Greeks continued the path laid down in 2 of the past his works — \»Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy\» (2013) and Aealo (2011). As is the case with a couple of previous albums, he has already managed to make a lot of noise on the internet. And, as always, the people divided into two camps. I\’ll take myself to those who wheeled album.
With the first song falls in a different world, thanks to its unique atmosphere gipnotichekoy not peculiar to any other group familiar to me. On the \»Rituals\» you get to the dark mass, or a kind of dark ritual. From each song on the album breathes something satanic-ritual. I think more on the last album, the mighty Greeks wanted to achieve such a result. On the \»Rituals\» they succeeded fully. The structure of the songs is quite simple and uncomplicated, but thanks to the folk instruments, choirs in different vocals interwoven with Sakis created hypnotic, mystical atmosphere sataniniskoy Mass, to go from which there is no desire.
About the music itself: it is quite logical continuation of previous work Rotting Christ, unless few modified. Actually, refinement — an opportunity to listen to any track, torn out of the picture, it was quite difficult to do in the previous year. Of course, not without a spoon of tar. Some of the songs are written like a blueprint, although rare team that does not sin. I would like to underline the 6th song, \»Tou Thanatou\», which is a composition of the same name on kverom Nikos Xylouris — it is somewhat out of the album, but the song is so epic I had not heard for many years. In total the album deserves a 9 out of 10. He would go to a round of 10-ku, but samoplagiat Greeks still not a person.
