GOD DETHRONED
UNDER THE SIGN OF THE IRON CROSS
METAL BLADE

Veteran Dutch death metal squad God Dethroned choose World War I once again for the subject matter of their ninth album, the blistering UNDER THE SING OF THE IRON CROSS. Picking up where PASSIONDALE left off, this nine-track release supplies a bombastic barrage of blood-soaked death metal fury, fully embracing the violent nature of the material with a wealth of crushing rhythms and rapid-fire percussion that emits an authentic warmongering vibe from every tortured expository growl and sweeping melodic guitar fill (“Under the Sign of the Iron Cross”). Surprisingly catchy yet substantially brutal (“Chaos Reigns At Dawn”, “Fire Storm”), God Dethroned delivers another pulverizing display of death metal devastation with a history lesson attached for good measure.
