The rumours have become reality — Greek black metal pioneers Rotting Christ have announced a headline event at Tāmaki Makaurau's The Mothership, as part of their globe-spanning 35th anniversary celebrations. Massively influential in their homeland's extreme music community (they are credited with originating the distinct "classic" Greek black metal sound) and one of the longest continuously running black metal groups on the planet, Rotting Christ first formed in 1987, releasing such crucial works in their unholy field as 1991's Passage to Arcturo EP and 1993's debut album Thy Mighty Contract, amidst a discography spanning thirteen studio long players and counting. Featuring founding members Sakis Tolis (vocals, guitar) and Themis Tolis (drums), with recent recruits Kostas "Spades" Heliotis and Kostis Foukarakis, turn up in force to experience the Greek metal masters unleashing material "from their entire catalogue since 1988" this coming May, brought to you by Your Mate Bookings and Foundry Touring...
