jaseofspades #RottingChrist Thy Mighty Contract #1993 #OsmoseProductions

@jaseofspades #JaseOfSpadesTop100Records – Counting down my most revered vinyl records. #71

My favorite Greek BM band and record. The Greek scene so unique, so removed from the style and affectations long ubiquitous in Black Metal. Clearly rooted more in the #HeavyMetal current, Rotting Christ's orchestrations are subtle, rhythmic, emotive and expressive.
Thy Mighty Contract is fluid, it's bewitching, there's a spiritual aura present and it genuinely feels like a paen to ancient forces - potentially capable of opening a portal, a gateway, somehow transcendental. It also pays homage to #AntonLaVey - a thinker after my own heart.
It's on my list, so it's redundant to make statements attesting to the importance of it, but it truly is a special offering. I suspect that the final results represented here are significantly due to forces beyond the band's control, (technological rather than diabolical) but happenstance was surely kind to this Greek horde.

  •   fear_my_nerves Nicely put! 3d
  •   thexessence It was interesting to see this band moderating their direction from early stages. I remember liking Satanas Tadeum very much but I haven't listen to RC in years. Gotta refresh my memory. 3d
  •   jaseofspades @fear_my_nerves thanks mate. 3d
  •   jaseofspades @thexessence their early years were definitely their best. Sure they became more musically ambitious, but up until maybe '95 or '96 - a really enganging band. 3d
  •   marmer666 Thnx hehe. Yes. This is a nice one. 3d
  •   sakisthelema @jaseofspades certainly this record is an icon in the BM Greek scene, it's a remarkable ancient force, like you said, Hail Hail Rotting Christ! Cheers! 3d

thetruezachariahelias Battlejacket No. 2 is finally complete!
Trouble is....while sourcing for the right patches to complete this one, I've amassed enough to complete a 3rd AND 4th.
First world metal problems indeed.

metalmentors Necromantia - Devilskin - Scarlet Evil Witching Black (1995)
This is the perfect opening track for such a dark and devastating album. And to top the track off is this insane fuckin' riff. I know it isn't the most inventive or imaginative riff you've ever heard, but it's fast, aggressive, and has a supremely hateful and violent feel to it, along with that perfect signature tone of the ultimate dual bass threat. As far as I'm concerned, Black Metal should make you want to do two things. One; it should make you want to ball your fists up so fucking tight that your nails go through your palms, and then smash your Mom's makeup cabinet open and paint your face really bad and stick your tongue out at her as she's bitching like an idiot about it. And two; it should possess you with so much raw energy and dark power that you just start uncontrollably making that stupid (but really fun) Abruptum face where it looks like you are super ticked off about that really shitty thing you smell. No other track really makes me want to do these things faster than this one here. I don't know if it's the obviously evil and tormented sound of the shrieking vocals, the rapid fire attack of the drums, or that ultra riffing, but this track is a real dominator. And the album as a whole is everything you could want from a great Black Metal record, with the added bonus of actually being entertaining as fuck and not just a fakey primitive, deliberately under produced bad kid mess. These god damn Greeks really knew what they were doing on this one.
