"And it's the grief that accompanies you"
D. Knouse | vancouver, washington United States | 05/11/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"4.5 stars. This is easily the most immediately accessible of all the albums in the Rotting Christ catalog. While a continuance, more or less, from their previous effort "Triarchy of the Lost Lovers," here the sinister Greeks add a glorious mixture of Gothic keyboards and marching rhythms with the occasional guitar lick lashing out like a forked tongue adding a melodic undertone. Overall, this CD is marvellous! The drumming is interesting, the songwriting always feels like it has some place to go, and the eerie backdrop of Gothic keyboards leaves a moody impression. I actually prefer their heavier albums such as "Thy Mighty Contract" and "Khronos 666," but "A Dead Poem" feels, at times, almost ready for mainstream radio. Take that as a compliment or not, I still prefer their darker, Black Metal beginnings. However, this is still a very good album I know I will return to in the near future. This is probably the best first purchase the beginning fan can make because the songs here make an immediate impression. Later on, the more intricate sections make this album a real value. Take it easy."

"Rotting Christ are known more for the controversy of their name rather than their music. Which is too bad considering how good their music actually is. Early albums from Doom bands such as Sentenced and Amorphis mixed with a bit of Death Metal is the best way I can think of to describe it. Vocals are done in the sort-of-but-not-quite Death Metal style reminiscent of early Paradise Lost and early Anathema only a bit more gutteral. the riffs switch from Doom to other styles seemlessly which results in a brutal, almost straight-forward metal sound with an underlying current of majesty and atmosphere. The drums and bass are get the job done but aren't anything spectacular. Overall this is one of those albums just about anyone can enjoy. I can't really compare to the rest of their catalog because this is my first Rotting Christ album but I've heard from people that other releases are quite different. Don't let the name fool into thinking this is just another lame gore and guts Satan band."
Awesome Album!!

"This Album has excelent songs, creating a dark atmosphere, I would define their style as Black/dark Metal, although they have some Gothic influences, they sound a little like old Moonspell, but unlike Moonspell i think Rotting Christ have stayed true to their roots. and for those who don't think the same just listen to Moonspell's last album and see how they've sold out."
