“Christian Death take a relentlessly confrontational stand against organized religion and conventional morality, with an appetite for provocation that makes Marilyn Manson look like Stryper.” – VH1
“One of the top ten goth bands of all time.” – Rolling Stone Magazine
Founded in Los Angeles in 1979 by Rozz Williams, the hugely-influential band trail-blazed the American goth and death-rock movement with their debut album, ‘Only Theatre of Pain’ (1982) and genre-defining ‘Catastrophe Ballet’ (1984) and ‘Ashes’ (1985). Of these, ‘Ashes’ is a true testament to the CHRISTIAN DEATH legacy, as it marks the final appearance of the classic band lineup. ‘Ashes’ features the final recordings of founder Rozz Williams alongside current CHRISTIAN DEATH main-man Valor Kand, vocalist-keyboardist Gitane Demone and drummer David Glass before Williams’ untimely demise in 1998.
