Christian Death is an American death rock band formed in Pomona, California, in 1979 by Rozz Williams. He was eventually joined by guitarist Rikk Agnew of the band Adolescents, James McGearty on bass guitar and George Belanger on drums. This line-up was responsible for producing the band’s best-known work, their 1982 debut album Only Theatre of Pain, which was highly influential in the development of the style of music known as deathrock, as well as on the American gothic scene.

To this day, this landmark Death Rock album stands the test of time, and is now a classic in the Goth scene. Legendary L.A. punk rock photographer Edward Colver followed Christian Death around in the early 1980s, photographing them when they played live in the Los Angeles area and also at a cemetery in Pomona, as well as at Rozz’s family home. Cult Epics’ goal is to produce an oversized book (available in Soft and Hardcover editions) of Edward’s many rare and never before seen iconic photos, and go behind-the-scenes through interviews with him and the original band members to tell the story.

In honor of Only Theatre of Pain’s 40th anniversary, in collaboration with Lisa Fancher of Frontier Records, we are offering an exclusive, limited edition box set which includes the hardcover book plus a newly produced, double vinyl gatefold of OTOP that includes a bonus LP of demos and bonus tracks.


New Hardcover book, approx. 208 pages, over 400 images and text, 12.25”x12.25” inches, edited by Nico B and a Deluxe Box Set Edition with Double Vinyl Gatefold album and more. Campaign now Live on INDIEGOGO.
