Christian Death is an American Deathrock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1979. The band was fronted and founded by Rozz Williams and featured guitarist Rikk Agnew. Christian Death are most notable for their album Only Theatre of Pain, which was a major event in the birth of the Goth and Deathrock subculture within the United States and beyond.
After many line up changes, at one point during the 1990s there were two bands with the name Christian Death. One featured Williams, and the other featured Valor Kand, who actually owns all legal rights to the name. He has been the lead guitarist since the second album "Catastrophe Ballet", and later became lead vocalist as well. This version does not feature any members of the original band, though it has been around since 1985.
