Rotting Christ

"Rotting Christ* is a Greek black metal band formed in 1987. They are noted for being one of the first black metal bands within this region, as well as a premier act within the European underground metal scene.  Despite the name, the band's traditional lyrical themes involving evil and occultism has evolved into a more mystic path, and they have modified their musical direction on each album, utilizing elements such as clean melodic baritone vocals, Doom, Gothic metal and Industrial music traits, and male/female Benedictine chants."

Rotting Christ is more of what I would call a Melodic Blackened Death Metal band, heavy, atmospheric and full of awesome riffs / musicianship.  They currently have 10 albums (their newest being Aealo) so you have a lot to pick from if you like it!

The theme of this band probably gives parents the impression that all Metal is like this. What a shame.

Seriously, though. "Rotting Christ" is... kinda asking for bad publicity lol.
