We have the Australian premiere of Rotting Christ’s Ἐλθὲ Κύριε (Elthe Kyrie) It’s the first single off their new album titled Rituals, which is due out on
5 February 2016 via Season of Mist.
“We now present the first creation of our forthcoming album ‘Rituals’ to you. It is not an easy task to pick only one song to represent a whole album as diverse as this, but as this has to suffice for the time being, the choice fell on ‘Ἐλθὲ Κύριε (Elthe Kyrie)’, which translates as ‘Come Lord’ and was influenced by the tragic ancient Greek poet Euripides â€“ and more specifically his creation ‘Bakxais’. This pure bacchanalian play refers to the coming of the new god.”
