God Dethroned is a Death Metal band formed back in 1990 by vocalist and guitarist Henri Sattler and they are considered as an established part of the Dutch death metal history. They have released ten studio albums where there is a clear evolution of their music style from death to blackened death and more recently, melodic death metal. “Illuminati” is a special record that represents a fusion of various elements from all eras of the band, musically speaking. On the other hand, the lyrics of the nine new tracks show a tendency of returning to the past with anti-religion topics, following a trilogy dedicated to World War I.
I was lucky enough to catch Midnight on tour last year with Abbath, and they put on an excellent show. It was fun and raucous, summoning up visuals of The Mentors and the sounds of Motorhead and Venom sodomizing punk rock. Rebirth By Blasphemy is an album I see myself returning to many times this year and is already a standout for me this early on
Over the years I have heard about Anacrusis being such an early pioneer of Progressive Thrash Metal, but I still never found their stuff to purchase (and usually never crossed my mind digitally.) Finally, their albums are being reissued and I have been given the chance to get to know them.
