A Dead Poem is the fourth full-length album by Greek extreme metal band Rotting Christ.

The band slowed down their tempos significantly and added occasional usage of acoustic guitars and regional music, making this particular record one of their more mainstream of releases, and the farthest removed from black metal music styles.

Moonspell's Fernando Ribeiro contributed backing vocals to the track "Among Two Storms".

It was produced at Woodhouse Studios in Hagen, Germany by Xy, programmer/percussionist for Samael, who also contributed keyboards to some tracks.
