Album Review

After devoting their previous two albums to exploring more accessible and intensely gothic sounds (without ever quite selling out, mind you), Greece's favorite sons Rotting Christ decided it was time to revisit the ferocious brutality of their raw primordial origins with 2000's Khronos — or at least portions of it. On the one hand, surprisingly blackened thrash-outs like "Thou Art Blind" and "Aeternatus" raged with a vicious aggression not heard since the group's uncompromising 1993 debut, Thy Mighty Contract.
