ROTTING CHRIST mainman Sakis Tolis has told MetalZone.gr that the group's previously announced live album will finally see the light of day before the end of 2007 on Season of Mist. The pioneers of the Greek metal scene put on two special two-hour shows featuring songs covering their entire catalog. These live concerts were held on February 3-4, 2006 at Blive Music House in Larissa, Greece and were the only shows to be recorded for the upcoming CD. The gigs marked the band's 18 years in the metal scene and fans from around the world were in attendance. The band also played a very special concert consisting exclusively of material from their first three albums "Passage to Arcturo" (1989), "Thy mighty Contract" (1992) and "Non Serviam" (1994) on January 14, 2006 at An Club in Athens, Greece.

In other news, Tolis also told MetalZone that the band will return to their home country after their extensive European tour beginning in a few days, to play a couple of shows that will be recorded for an upcoming DVD. More information will be made available soon.
