Gothic Rock pioneers Christian Death will be releasing their brand new full-length “Evil Becomes Rule” on May 6, 2022, via Season of Mist. The band is now sharing the second single ‘Beautiful’, here:
There has been a ridiculously huge revolving door of membership in the Los Angeles band known as Christian Death. In the beginning, not long after the local California release of the first album, “Only Theatre of Pain”, the band irrevocably and formally broke up. This left Rozz Williams at home with his overtly religious parents in Pomona, CA to contemplate his insufferable boredom, his only relief being found on the pages of his lyrics.
Now, the band is gearing up to release a brand new offering via Season of Mist, “Evil Becomes Rule”. With the release of their 17th studio album, Christian Death shows no signs of faltering or slowing down. The godfathers of death rock have simultaneously perfected and redefined their signature sound, which has served as a core inspiration for many bands of both the past and present, such as DANZIG, CELTIC FROST and TYPE O NEGATIVE, to name just a few.
“Evil Becomes Rule” isn’t merely a musical endeavor, but an artistic expression that blends elements of gothic rock, post-punk, and dark pop, cultivating a poetic aesthetic that is certain to continue to influence the next wave of gothic rock.
