ORDERS FROM THE DEAD

The song ORDERS FROM THE DEAD is out with ROTTING CHRIST concerning the GENOCIDE OF SMYRNA and now people can download a high quality wav file from the Diamanda Galas website www.diamandagalas.com


ORDERS FROM THE DEAD receives its second incarnation by Galás’ Greek brothers ROTTING CHRIST. Sakis Tollis, who is the composer and producer of the band, is from Epirus, which, like Mani, is a primary home of the death lament in Greece. Sakis’ orchestration of his powerful band and the Epirotean female singers he chose takes ORDERS FROM THE DEAD into a different place than the original and Galas likes that. “It should be different, rather than the way it was originally.” Galás performs original text and that of the great Anatolian Greek writer Dora Soteriou–in English and Greek, and collaboration of now the three different Greeks–Galás, Soteriou, who was the witness in Smyrna, and Rotting Christ, whose recording illustrates the terror of war, including genocide, slams back the Smyrnaic Genocide into the faces of the doubters, revisionists and anti-Greeks in America, Britain, and Turkey. Greeks have always documented their history with the zeal of those who know they have only centuries, and now, decades, left before extinction.

For Galás, ROTTING CHRIST’s request to cover ORDERS FROM THE DEAD is a further testimony that her efforts and those of all Greek, Assyrian, and Armenian Genocide activists will not be silenced by the Turkish/American/British and Israeli power conglomerate. When DEFIXIONES received its premiere in Los Angeles it was not reviewed, although there were scores of journalists there. When its completed version was premiered in the UK and in Australia all major papers condemned Galás for performing the work in the original languages in which it was written, Greek, Armenian, Assyrian, and Turkish. About Rotting Christ, Diamanda has said, “My brothers have come. My brothers have come.” Like the Greek boat her father’s relatives saw while fleeing the Turks on the shores of Smyrna, Sakis appeared and said, “May we join you, sister?”

  1. Καλά ἔλεγε ὁ Πατέρας Παΐσιος,στό ζωνάρι τους ἔχουν τά κόλλυβα οἱ Τοῦρκοι,καί αὐτοί πού τούς ὑποστηρίζουν,θά προσέτεθα ἐγώ.
    Τέτοιες πράξεις δέν τίς ἀφήνει ἀτιμώρητες ὁ Θεός,ὅσος καιρός καί ἄν περάση.

  2. Το συγκρότημα είναι ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΟ. Παίζουν HEAVY METAL και έχουν σημαντικές πωλήσεις και συναυλίες στο εξωτερικό. Οταν κάποιοι κάνουν δήθεν διεθνείς καρρίερες στους έλληνες της ομογένειας κάποιοι άλλοι έχουν επιτυχίες.
    Αποδεικνύουν όμως οι Rotting Christ ότι η ΕΛΛΑΔΑ έτσι όπως την θέλουν κάποιοι δεν θα γίνει ποτέ. Μπράβο ρε μάγκες κοντρα στους γραβατομένους γενικούς γραμματείς, καθηγητές πανεπιστημίων του κώλου, μερικοί μαλλιάδες αναρχικοί θα συνεχίσουν να τραγουδάνε την ιστορία της χώρας μας…..

  3. Εγω μένω άφωνος που βάλατε αυτό το αφιέρωμα στο αντίχρηστο συγκρότημα ανάμεσα σε άλλα τόσα εξαίσια άρθρα σας! Και μόνο το όνομα τα λέει όλα…”rotting Christ”.

    1. Κανείς δεν είναι τέλειος Φίλε μας. Μάλλον δεν έχεις καταλάβει ότι εδώ αυτές οι φωτιές ξαναμπαίνουν. Από τα ίδια κτήνη. Πάλι είναι εδώ και σφάζουν, καίνε, βιάζουν. Το αφιέρωμα είναι στην εντολή των νεκρών, όχι στο συγκρότημα.
