The Thelema-inspired doom of Caronte, with Schammasch’s ritualistic blackened death, rounded off by the no-nonsense black metal assault of Enthroned: what more could any self-respecting Luciferian occultist ask for a pleasant night? Well done to District 19 for putting together a great show at Netherlands’ P60 Pop Podium.
The organisers of the Belgian black metal festival, Thronefest, may not invite or even encourage media attention, but they most definitely deserve it, putting on a well-curated, well-organised show that focuses more on the music than the social aspect that so many festivals have come to represent.
Cold Black Suns (Season of Mist) is an unforgettable piece of occult black metal art, fusing savagery with frozen beauty – but it is also a selection of nine very separate songs that can each stand on their own as near-perfect examples of the craft Belgium’s Enthroned have been honing for a quarter of a century.
Enthroned represent Belgium’s longest-running black metal act, with over a quarter of a century of active recording and performing. Vocalist Nornagest discusses the new album, Cold Black Suns, ahead of its June release.
If you’re unfamiliar with Thy Antichrist’s back catalogue, expect frenetic, angry and dynamic metal that teeters closer to the edge of death than black, in the line of Enthroned or Grand Declaration of Wa-era Mayhem, on Wrath of the Great Beast.
Belgium’s Enthroned have always been a bit of an underdog in the black metal scene. While the band have always had a decent following, they’ve never really broken through to “top tier” status. Part of the reason is that (at least to me) the group have never really been able to consistently deliver high quality albums. Sure, they’ve always had decent recordings, but never did they have a release that could truly be called solid until 2012’s Obsidium came along.
Released via Agonia Records on April 15, 2014, the 9-song skull-smasher of a disc entitled Sovereigns, is the latest and greatest from Brussels, Belgium-based black metal band, Enthroned. Loaded with jarring moments, we decided to toss some gear questions at bassist Phorgath who in turn hooked up some cool responses in order to help us all better understand the sound behind Sovereigns. Check it out.
