Set The World Afire

AFTER A LENGTHY HIATUS, GOD DETHRONED RETURN TO RECORDED ACTION WITH A NEW STUDIO ALBUM THAT SEES THE QUARTET REFLECT ON PAST GLORIES AND PUSH BACK THEIR OWN BOUNDARIES TO DELIVER MORE QUALITY GOODS. AND IT’S ALL HAPPENED THANKS TO A CRUISE SHIP, ACCORDING TO FRONTMAN HENRI SATTLER

GOD DETHRONED

We’re going to start off with a personal thought; one that, even if you’ve never considered it, you’re likely to share. When this writer first discovered and became a fan of Holland’s God Dethroned, never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a luxury cruise ship would play so significantly in the band’s timeline and history. This is a band whose early years are littered with an anti-Christian rhetoric acknowledged as unsubtle and juvenile on the best of days, a band whose first label [Shark Records] refused to release their 1992 debut, ‘The Christhunt’ with the dissected rat cover art curated by guitarist/ vocalist/lone original member, Henri Sattler and a band whose ‘Bloody Blasphemy’ album of 1999 was embraced by similar sympathetic satanists as Marduk, Immortal and Deicide. Even when progress saw their blackened thrashing death metal incorporating more melody and as topical themes shifted towards to the first World War on 2009’s ‘Passiondale’ and 2010’s ‘Under The Sign Of The Iron Cross’, at no point did it seem likely that Royal Caribbean’s fully pimped out Independence Of The Seas would factor into any of this.

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s safe to say most of the writing team this month are suffering post-Roadburn blues. It happens every year without a shadow of a doubt. If you want to read up on all the fun you either witnessed yourselves or sadly missed out on, for whatever reason, please turn to the live section of the magazine and bathe in some of the highlights of this year’s event. We also have some killer features in this issue, and as always, it’s a battle to feature every band Team Terrorizer loves. The good news is, what’s inside is a broad spectrum of bands who have long-established relationships with the magazine and with you guys too. Dying Fetus grace the cover, which we are very honoured about, and elsewhere there’s some killer interviews with Oxbow, who have returned after a decade; horror rocker Wednesday 13, Schammasch talk about their new opus, VoiVod get nostalgic with us and Vallenfyre have frankly blown the roof down at Tezza Towers with their album of the year contender. So what are you waiting for – stop reading my notes and get to the real action! See you next month! Adios
