A little interesting post for you all! Don't worry, I'll be going back to New England series in a bit!

So I discovered that everyone's favorite Greek black metal band, Rotting Christ, started out as a grindcore-ish death metal band. Given my love of all things grind, I was curious how this sounded. Figured I'd share one of these old tracks. Well, it sounds like late 90s death/grind, just as I had hoped! This quick song has it all, unrelenting blast beats/punk rhythms, early death metal tremolo guitar leads/riffs, raw & gruff vocals, and poor production (though not as bad as I was expecting). It's good old school death/grind (or least I think you could call it that)! Anyways, enjoy!
