Triarchy of the Lost Lovers began Rotting Christ's venture into their more contemporary sound. Essentially the album is one of those that offers nothing earth-shattering or adventurous; rather it is a journey into moderately dark heavy metal with an atmospheric/gloomy edge. Emphasis is placed on mood as conveyed through the slow to midpaced rhythms and guitar riffs designed to create a feeling of quiet darkness. Without fail Rotting Christ is an enjoyable listen. The album has a very consistent smooth flow throughout, a distinct signature and good songs. Perhaps the only real throwback to their earlier material is in the rasped vocals that definitely show black metal roots. For classification and lumping purposes, fans of Samael, Alastis, newer Sentenced and other similarly dark acts can pick up any of the past three Rotting Christ albums and find them pleasing.
One way of looking at _TotLL_ is seeing it as a stepping stone for the band and its growth, as I am sure that with future releases from the band we will see the continuing need for the band to explore other musical boundaries, yet retain the mighty and aggressive sounds they are known for. Bottom line: Rotting Christ delivers strong with _TotLL_ and I highly reccomend this release.
