This amazing vintage band tee is for the iconic goth rock group Christian Death. the black shirt shows off an image of the band on the front while the back features their logo and the words, "Drink the Blood of Christ". Christian Death was first conceived in the late 70s and early 80s by the legendary musician and performance artist Rozz Williams. Williams left the band in 1985 to pursue more experimental music and performances, leading guitarist Valor Kand to take control of the group. This shirt is from the 90s after the group was joined by dutch artist Maitri on bass.
Christian Death was instrumental in the development of deathrock music and the American gothic scene that eventually spawned groups like Kommunity FK and 45 Grave. Their lyrics often center around controversial topics like blasphemy, drug use, sexual perversity, and necrophilia, and they have inspired such iconic artists as Danzig, Cradle of Filth, Type O Negative, Nine Inch Nails, and Jane's Addiction. Christian Death has continued to release music into the 2000s, issuing The Root of All Evilution in 2015.
