Author Benedetta Baldin - 31.5.2024

Rising from the pillars of their Hellenic heritage, the sovereign kings of black metal, Rotting Christ, invite you to partake in a monumental crusade across Europe. Hot on the heels of their enthralling 14th studio album “Pro Xristou”, the Greek metal legends unveil their spellbinding 2024 EU Tour dates, commencing this autumn.

Dear Metal brothers & sisters, we can proudly announce that we celebrate our 35 years of existence with the release of our new album Pro Xristou & some special shows on European soils this Autumn. Together with the Scandinavian Pagan Metal  Kings Borknagar and French diabolical horde Seth we promise to perform a hell of a show every night! Thanks for your attention and look forward to seeing you all in the battle field! Sakis Tolis

With the spellbinding essence of their latest opus, “Pro Xristou”, the Greek forebearers Rotting Christ will share stages with Norway’s progressive black metal giants Borknagar, whose profound musical narratives have sculpted their undisputed place within the genre. Alongside them, France’s Seth will bring their own brand of fervent intensity and atmospheric ferocity to the mix. Together, they stand as a triad set to invigorate and bewitch audiences across the continent.

We are honoured and incredibly excited to announce our upcoming co-headline tour across the European lands with our brothers in music, and true legends, Rotting Christ! 🔥 In 2022, during the aftermath of the Corona pandemic, we teamed up for a highly successful tour across the North Americas as a part of the Devastation on the Nation festival tour. Now, armed and ready with the new respective albums “Fall” and “Pro Xristou”, it’s time to team up once again for an epic European adventure! This one shall be for the books- powerful, passionate and legendary! Come, join us! 🤘 Borknagar

Sharing the stage for a whole month with thy mighty Rotting Christ is thrilling! This will be our 3rd European tour in over 25 years and definitely the biggest journey that we’ve ever had! We can’t think of any better band on Season of Mist roster to promote La France des Maudits! Seth

Pro Xristou (‘Before Christ’ in Greek), serves as a fervent tribute to the last Pagan kings who resisted the onslaught of Christianity, guarding their ancient values and knowledge. In this thematic odyssey, intricately woven through tracks such as ‘The Apostate’ and ‘Ygdrassil’, Rotting Christ delves into the legacies of historical figures such as Flavius Claudius Julianus and Nordic mythological kings, embodying the might of Pagan wisdom in the face of Christian adversity. The album encapsulates the essence of Rotting Christ’s signature style – melodic, yet harsh at times – reinventing themselves yet again, while remaining rooted in their 35-year legacy.
