It will be released on September 3, 2021 via Season of Mist.

“The Dark Age Renaissance Collection Part 3: The Age Of Decadence” is a 4 CD jewel case set which features three of their middle-period recordings and 1990 demos/outtakes compilation – “Insanus, Ultio, Proditio, Misericordiaque” (1990), “Sexy Death God” (1994), “Prophecies” (1996), and “Pornographic Messiah” (1998) – into one limited package.

This release series is part of an ongoing series of CD and vinyl reissues of Christian Death’s catalog via Season of Mist. Previously, the label reissued LPs for the band’s “Catastrophe Ballet” (1984) as well as “The Root of All Evilution”, “Ashes”, “The Scriptures”, and “Sex and Drugs and Jesus Christ” as well as CD and vinyl reissues for 1986’s “Atrocities”.

About the early Christian Death

Founded in Los Angeles in 1979 by Rozz Williams, Christian Death trail-blazed the American goth and death-rock movement with their debut album, “Only Theatre of Pain” (1982) and the genre-defining “Catastrophe Ballet” (1984) and “Ashes” (1985).

“Ashes” marks the final appearance of the classic band lineup and 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’ death in 1998.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
