RockmusicRaider Video - Deviser - Black Mass - Howling Flames

Sometimes marriages actually do work. Deviser – the Greek Black Metal band – and Sakis Tolis from Rotting Christ teamed up and released this tasty little video called Black Mass.

Whilst a bit simplistic and repetitive on structure, the raw Black Metal power, and inherent melodic elements exert a pull that will make you come back for more.

RockmusicRaider Review - Rotting Christ - Khronos - Album Cover

We write the year 2000. This was the time when the world awoke to the Y2K disaster that did not happen, even if it was widely hyped.
