ROTTING CHRIST mainman Sakis Tolis recently told that the group's previously announced live album — which was recorded a year ago — will finally see the light of day before the end of 2007. The pioneers of the Greek metal scene put on two special two-hour shows featuring songs covering their entire catalog. These live concerts were held on February 3-4, 2006 at Blive Music House in Larissa, Greece and were the only shows to be recorded for the upcoming CD. The gigs marked the band's 18 years in the metal scene and fans from around the world were in attendance. The band also played a very special concert consisting exclusively of material from their first three albums — "Passage To Arcturo" (1989), "Thy Mighty Contract" (1992) and "Non Serviam" (1994) — on January 14, 2006 at An Club in Athens, Greece.

In other news, Tolis also told that the band will return to their home country after an extensive European tour to play a couple of shows that will be recorded for an upcoming DVD. More information will be made available soon.

As previously reported, ROTTING CHRIST has posted its video for the song "Keravnos Kivernitos" at The clip was directed by Bob Katsionis and comes off the group's latest album, "Theogonia", which came out in January via Season of Mist.

"Theogonia" was recorded at SCA Studios in Greece with bandleader Sakis Tolis handling the production and mixing and mastering duties. According to a press release, "the 10 new tracks see the band going back to their darker, more savage and faster musical roots and attitude, adopting an ancient Greek as well as ethnic presentation by inclusion of a large choir singing in the ancient Greek language throughout the album as well as the use of bizarre oriental samples and walls of keyboards."
