Mighty Dutch death metallers God Dethroned have announced that Bravewords.com will be premiering the second track from ‘Under the Sign of the Iron Cross,’ “Storm Of Steel.” The song perpetuates Henri Sattler’s lyrical WWI theme and describes what it was like to go over the trench and be a part of a charge in the war of attrition style warfare for which WWI was best known. Musically, the song is just as much of a barrage of steel and iron to aurally represent the machine gun and artillery fire experience. Listen to “Storm Of Steel” now HERE.

‘Under the Sign of the Iron Cross,’ the bands 9th album, was recorded at the Soundlodge Studios in Leer, Germany.
Comments singer and guitarist Henri Sattler: “Musically the new album turned out to be one of the most extreme records we ever did. Nevertheless with the very recognizable God Dethroned hooks present in all the songs.Producer Joerg Uken outdid himself this time, because our new album is in my opinion the best produced album we ever had. Extremely raw, heavy, but crystal clear and super dynamic at the same time.”
