ENTHRONED to Release “Sovereigns” in April

Tuesday, 18th February 2014

Belgium’s leading black metal force ENTHRONED returns with a new studio album entitled Sovereigns. The follow-up to 2012’s critically acclaimed Obsidium is scheduled for a April 15 release via Agonia Records.

Sovereigns drifts from sonic blast beats to oppressive slower parts, melds together aggressive shredding with forceful riffs, and blends satanic whispers with Nornagest’s trademark vocals. On the whole, band’s 10th album feels coherent and offers first-rate black metal. The album introduces a new drummer, Menthor, in the place of Garghuf and a new rhythm guitarist ZarZax.

Sovereigns was recorded and mixed in ENTHRONED’s own studio, Blackout Multimedia. The album will be available in: digipack CD, black vinyl, bone-white vinyl with green splatter limited to 100 hand-numbered copies and exclusive box CD limited to 333 hand-numbered copies (including the new album released in exclusive jewel-case edition, embroidered patch (8 cm x 10 cm), flag (42 cm x 59.4 cm) and a lighter with band’s logo).
