Gothic Black Rotting Christ. Band Name Rotting Christ. Album Name Sanctus Diavolos.

Curiously, though, the album doesn't seem to be one of their stronger works. The vocals are what Sakis has gotten us used to in the past years, and the solo is incredibly reminiscent of 80's heavy metal with tappings and all. The benedictine chants become more and more commonplace in Rotting Christ's music with this album, having taken over most if not all of the chorus of the second track, along with a wonderfully typical black metal tremolo riff.

Sanctus Diavolos is a quite lazily written album. A lot of the songs tend to blend together and RC’s gimmicks to create a Greece-feeling such as choirs aren’t really that interestingly used here. The atmosphere overall does, besides its flaws, work very well. It’s a very evil album in tone and that is Sanctus Diavolos strength. The vocals are way weaker here than in better releases by the band which is also disappointing because his vocals has been absolutely crushing from time to time (latest and first releases)  . It really shows that Rotting Christ tried to create some kind of aggression with this release but they don’t fully succeed. The lyrics are, however, great as usual from Rotting Christ. This album has moments but that is also the problem. It only has moments.
