First time I listened to Rotting Christ was 10 years ago, in college. I remember that albums like "Triarchy of the Lost Lovers", "A Dead Poem", "Sleep of the Angels", "Khronos" and "Genesis" made me love their style, their melodic black/gothic riffs and choirs. But somehow, after six interesting albums that marked my tastes in music followed three cds that, for some reason, didn't capture my attention at all. Rather liniar, repetitive and dull, "Sanctus Diavolos" and especially "Theogonia" and "Aealo" made my think that RC started following a road that will never catch my attention like they used to....and then "Κατά τον δαίμονα εαυτού" came. It captures the very essence of RC from their best albums and somehow goes a little further with crushing riffs and a good sound quality (a thing that older albums of Rotting Christ didn't have, making the guitars not so dynamic). I considered writing some track names that I consider to be the best on this album, but I can't make up my mind: all of the tracks are different in styles and each and every one of them has something interesting in them; all hails to Rotting Christ!
