Joel Bisson I loved Christian Death almost 20 years ago, I love the dark lyrics. Favorite track: Spiritual Cramp - Deathwish EP (Original).

i-am-an-architect Christian Death's début, pioneering death rock with dark, gloomy post-punk, stellar bass work and shrieking guitars. (purchased yellow vinyl). 10/10 Favorite track: Burnt Offerings (Original).

ProvokingDrama I just wanted this more than I wanted the remastered/updated version. Vocals remind me a bit of Celtic Frost "Into The Pandemonium".....or the other way around.

Michael Council amazingly poetic Goth rock at its best.
