The Greek metal veterans of ROTTING CHRIST have shared another brand new track from their upcoming record, ‘The Heretics.’ The Russian themed track, “Ветры злые (Vetry Zlye),” featuring Irina Zybina (GRAI), is now streaming via Satanath HERE! (English text is at the bottom of the site page).
‘The Heretics‘ is slated for release on February 15 via Season of Mist and can be pre-ordered in various formats HERE.
Frontman Sakis Tolis comments on behalf of the band: “Dear fellows, I am in the pleasant position to present to you another new song I wrote for Rotting Christ; ‘Ветры злые’ (Vetry Zlye),’ a song that was influenced by paganism and specifically from the Slavic pagan religions through the history of time and exalts the power of mother nature. I Hope you will enjoy the (probably) most melodic song from our upcoming album ‘The Heretics,’ which is accompanied by the beautiful voice of Irina Zybina.”

ROTTING CHRIST were the first Greek band to break out from the underground and make their impact felt worldwide. The band return with their stunning new album ‘The Heretics’. In a signature style honed by 30 years of toil and triumph, the quartet deliver heavy metal thunder so epic that it could have been forged by the gods themselves. The anthemic “Heaven and Hell and Fire”, “The Raven” and “Fire God and Fear” are staggering in their size and breadth. The power and majesty of ‘The Heretics’ can only be achieved by a band with a lifetime’s devotion to heavy metal, and proves these pioneers to be among the genre’s all-time elite.
