Got an excited sms early this morning from our metal correspondent in the outer limits of Gopeng - Tuan Anba. Apparently, extreme metal act Rotting Christ have announced their 2009 tour & we are part of the itinerary!!! Its even confirmed on the band's official website (http://www.rotting-christ.com/tour.php).
But me is telling Anba there's no way in hell (excuse the pun) that the authorities will allow these longhairs to play a show. The moniker alone is enough to cause offence. Anyways, the gig is scheduled fer 5 May, 2009 @ Melawati Stadium, Shah Alam.
So in the meantime, you can busy yerself by downloading some of their LPs. You can find most of their discography here: http://lordmessiah.wordpress.com/2007/12/21/rotting-christ-greece/ .
Fer a sample of these Greek black metallers, watch this vid:
ps: Apologies to any of me Christian friends who are offended by this posting.
pps: Let's just say fer whatever perverse reason, the gig is allowed to happen, anyone going? Me is definitely on fer this!
