Belgium's leading black metal force ENTHRONED returns with a new studio album, entitled Sovereigns. The follow-up to Obsidium (2012) is scheduled for an April 15th release via Agonia Records worldwide. The album track 'Of Feathers And Flames' is now streaming below.
Sovereigns drifts from sonic blastbeats to oppressive slower parts, melds together aggressive shredding with forceful riffs, and blends Satanic whispers with Nornagest's trademark vocals. On the whole, the 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.
