Commented the group in a statement: "We as a band are really anxious to perform again infront of our Brazilian metal brothers songs from all of our discography and we promise them some really diabolical nights."
ROTTING CHRIST recently announced the addition of NIGHTFALL guitarist George Bokos as a full-time member of the group. "ROTTING CHRIST are deeply satisfied from the co-operation they had on their last tours with their session guitarist George Bokos and decided to offer him a permanent place in the band's lineup, something that was accepted from George's side too," the band wrote in a statement.
ROTTING CHRIST recorded their two live shows in Larissa, Greece for an upcoming live album. The pioneers of the Greek metal scene put on two special two-hour shows featuring songs covering their entire catalog. These live shows were held on February 3-4 at Blive Music House in Larissa, and were the only concerts to be recorded for the upcoming CD. The shows 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 at An Club in Athens, Greece.
ROTTING CHRIST's "Passage To Arcturo" and "Non Serviam" albums were reissued in January with bonus audio and video tracks via Season of Mist.
