Rotting Christ: The Heretics Review

Greek black metal legends, Rotting Christ, are back for their 13th album. Being this deep into your catalog is an interesting situation for any band, especially one that helped pioneer a sound and style. Do they step up and reclaim the throne or assume their fans will buy anything they put out?

You know when you see a wrestling legend go out and work a half-assed match? A sad display that shows that they should be nowhere near the ring any longer?

Yea, that's kind of what this was.

Now, that's not to say there isn't anything worth hearing on The Heretics. It's just that it peaks at the second song and then spends most of the remaining run in bargain bin territory.

Diehards only need apply.
