GOD DETHRONED- Illuminati CD
GOD DETHRONED never say die! The immutable power of the Netherlands greatest Blackened Death Metal band rings true on new album, Illuminati. But this isn't something new for the Dutch horde. Since forming in the village of Beilen in 1991, God Dethroned have amassed a sizable following through the release of 10 full-length albums. From debut The Christhunt (1992) and Bloody Blasphemy (1999) to The Toxic Touch (2006) and comeback The World Ablaze (2017), Henri Sattler's GOD DETHRONED have indeed purveyed some of the finest evil death since Possessed hurled the ground-breaking Seven Churches upon metaldom. Luckily, for headbangers and horn-throwers the world over, Illuminati continues GOD DETHRONED's immutable reign after a two-year gap.
With a cover by Polish master Michał 'Xaay' Loranc (Nile, Evocation) and featuring some of GOD DETHRONED’s strongest songs to date, Illuminati is conversant in the tenets of Death Metal, experimental where it needs to be, and indomitable in spirit. It's the kind of album that will bestow the Dutch heroes with accolades and push them across Europe (first with Obscura) and then the rest of the globe (planning for North and South America is under way) throughout 2020. Be forewarned… videos for "Spirit of Beelzebub" and the title track have already been completed and are poised take the damned straight back to Hell!
