Rotting Christ, ‘Cine Lubeste Si Lasa’ – Best 2013 Metal Songs
Take your seats, ladies and gentlemen, the show is about to commence. This track is a re-imagining of Maria Tanase’s 1936 Romanian curse chant of the same name, bringing separate generations together for a modern masterpiece.
Greek experimental death metal band Rotting Christ warm up the breathtaking track ‘Cine Lubeste Si Lasa’ with a theatrical piano intro, followed by the wails of stunning female opera singer Souzana Vougioukli, who proceeds further down her path throughout the six-minute piece. Rotting Christ are tremendous musicians, but the compositional qualities of ‘Cine Lubeste Si Lasa’ prove to be the track’s greatest strength, as Rotting Christ become one singular being entwined with their female guest.
