This is the first album I've heard from Rotting Christ, and if they're all as good as this I might have to do some shopping. There is a very gothic, atmospheric sound on here, similar to Dark Tranquility on Haven, but with sweeping strings rather than bleepy keyboards. The guitars are like a more evil Iced Earth, jarring and heavy but still listenable. The vocals aren't very grating, surprisingly, most times they are whispering tones similar to when Dani of Cradle of Filth isn't screaming. Some of the songs here sound a bit samey, which is why it only gets four stars, but really this album doesn't deserve the flak it's had. If you like your metal heavy, atmospheric and want to be able to make out what is being sung then this is for you. This is definitely worth a purchase, but probably after you've got their two most critically acclaimed albums, 2000's "Khronos" and 1997's "A Dead Poem".

This is a great album with Rotting Christ starting to show a little more symphonic influence, but at the same time staying true to their black metal roots. Would recommend to anyone who likes either black or symphonic metal

The third and final release from the bands 'Gothic / heavy metal' period. Along with 'Triarchy of the Lost Lovers 1996 + A Dead Poem 1997, the sound on this release is softer and mellower than what came before and after. I would recommend these three albums to fans of traditional heavy metal / melodic death metal + Gothic metal. Fans coming from the black/Death genre will probably know RC anyway but for newbies 1993's Thy Mighty Contract is a classic defining the Greek melodic black metal sound. 2004's Sanctus Diavolos is their least accessable and most black metal album in my opinion but as with every RC album, it rewards listening.

Not bad...but my least favorite from them. 31 Mar 2004
By Dustin Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Out of all of their albums, this has to be my least favorite. It has a couple great tracks, but the only one that really stands out is the title track. On albums like A Dead Poem, Triarchy of Lost Lovers, and Genesis, they succeed in being far more epic....whereas on this album is feels very tired and run of the mill.
Not a bad album by any means, but I recommend pretty much any of their other albums before this one.
Oh...and they are from Greece. Not Germany.

"This beauty that excels" 11 May 2004
By D. Knouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
4.5 stars. This album is more or less a continuation in the same Goth Metal direction as their previous release "A Dead Poem." This is superior for the the simple reason that Rotting Christ has refined its apporach, and the result is more fluid. I am a fan of the persuasion that prefers the heavier Rotting Christ albums such as "Thy Mighty Contract" and "Khronos 666." But that should be noted when considering that I rated this more mid-tempo release so highly. For that matter, there really isn't a bad Rotting Christ album for sale here at Amazon.com. "Non Servium" is listed here, but I don't see it being readily available to their fans in the near future. But those that are available are all worth owning. If you are more into mid-tempo Gothic dirges with solid guitar riffs, then "Sleep of the Angels" would be a fine purchase. But if you are like me and you prefer a more brutal attack, try "Thy Mighty Contract" or "Khronos 666." All get my attention. There are many fans here who rank this album as their best. It is a fine album, to be sure. Thank you.

Beautiful....however.... 30 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love this cd, unfortunately, I have been with these guys for a really long time, and this album for me is a little less than what I would have hoped for. The Mighty Contract and Triarchy of lost souls are both extremely epic feeling albums. To a lesser degree, so is A dead Poem, as that particular album just plain rocks, but doesnt give you the feel the formers do. Most people would disagree with me on that, but thats a different review isnt it? I just felt that with Sleep of the angels, Rotting Christ lost their epicness, their passion, and their style. It is still Rotting christ, with many good songs (The title track is the best), but they could have done better......

HAIL TO THE HELLENIC GODS 3 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I GIVE THIS CD 3 STARS BUT ONLY BECAUSE I LIKE THEIR PAST RECORDINGS BETTER, BUT THIS IS STILL A GOOD RECORDING. IF YOU LIKED THE SLOWER GOTHIC FEEL OF "A DEAD POEM", THEN THIS SHOULD PLEASE YOU. ROTTING CHRIST WERE PIONEERS OF THE BLACK METAL GENRE(ALONG WITH MAYHEM). IF MYSTIC BLACKNESS IS WHAT YOU ARE CRAVING, THEN BUY "THY MIGHTY CONTRACT" OR "THE TRIARCHY OF THE LOST LOVERS"

This Is An Excellent Disc! 30 May 2001
By Stefan F. Kramer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a very good disc! I strongly suggest that you purchase it! Why? Well because every track is moving and filled with excellent musicianship! If you are into After Forever, or perhaps Orphanage (An Excellent band from the Netherlands!) Get this disc, it will not dissapoint any metal fan!
