Highly distinguished Dutch death metal greats GOD DETHRONED have recently released what is being heralded as one of the best albums of their long career in Passiondale. On the heels of this release, Metal Blade Records has extended God Dethroned’s contract yet again to continue putting out some of the most intense and unique death metal albums from one of the genre’s best bands.
God Dethroned will be campaigning across North America once again. This time, they’ll be supporting Overkill’s 25th Anniversary Killfest tour throughout April. The tour starts April 1st in Philadelphia at the Trocadero.
Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel comments: “We are very happy to continue our long and great relationship with God Dethroned. We’ve been working with the band and Henri for over a decade and we look forward to more great music from them in the future!”
Henri Sattler, God Dethroned guitarist and vocalist adds, “‘Once you’re in it, you’re in it for life,’ the head of Metal Blade in Europe once said to me. It was already a dream come true to sign our first deal with the label back in ’97, and now 13 years later we just put our signature on our third contract with them. It’s just as exciting as it was back then and we’re very proud of earning their trust and support after all these years.”
“We are halfway through the writing process for a new album, which we will record starting end of May. First, we’ll play on the Killfest tour in the U.S. supporting Overkill together with label mates Woe of Tyrants and many other great bands. Abigail Williams’ axeman Ian Jekelis will take over touring duties for Susan, with whom we parted ways last January. We will announce the name of our new shredder right before we play our first European festival in May.”
