album review : Under the Sign of the Iron Cross (2010) – God Dethroned

album : Under the Sign of the Iron Cross

artist : God Dethroned

genre : Blackened Death Metal

year : 2010

It has been just an year since Passiondale and Dutch band God Dethroned are already out with their new album. Must say Metal Blade are encouraging a lot of true metal to come out of their label. God Dethroned are one of the pioneers of blackened death metal and none of their albums could be categorized as below average or even average for that matter. They have been tearing apart listeners due to the ferociousness of their songs, and Under the Sign of the Iron Cross is now my favorite out of all their albums.

You could call this a short and sweet release by God Dethroned as there are just nine tracks and they take turns and punch you with not much of a gap between each punch. The instruments have been played on their ninth record in a very debonair fashion. There are even some surprises in store if you are listening to the album carefully as the band changes moods and tones in between and you’d be glad that happened but then you could not think of it before.

With Under the Sign of the Iron Cross also sounding so tight, the band is just giving an impression that they are doing a great job of snatching away the throne from you-know-who.

Key tracksStorm of Steel, Under the Sign of the Iron Cross, Through Byzantine Hemispheres, The Red Baron, On Fields of Death & Desolation
