Sorry, there are no Christian Death dates.
In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth. Then Christian Death turned it upside down.
Officially there have been over 30 musicians involved with the band. Therefore a historical litany of them all would be impractical.
Rozz then joined the band '
way through the tour the band stopped in
confirming the 2nd tour in 85 singer Rozz quit the band. Valor
returned to vocals, the band embarked on the 2nd tour. In
1988 Brought us the release of "Sex & Drugs & Jesus Christ". This was turning point for the band. The cover depicted an image of Jesus shooting up heroin. This was a full frontal attack by Valor against the Church with a scathing heretical mockery of organized Christianity. The band then found themselves confronted by protesters, riots and bomb threats, These events and the bands imagery and fashion went on to influence the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Type O Negative, every Goth band on the planet and many others.
