God Dethroned - Under the Sign of the Iron Cross

MetalSucks got nothin’ but love for God Dethroned. Sammy O’Hagar gave their 2009 World War I-themed album Passiondale four-out-of-five horns, which we ended up streaming in full; Bob Cock ranked Passiondale in his top twenty albums of 2009; Axl thought a song from that record kicked ass, and though he thought its first video was suspect he was a big fan of its second; we even sponsored their fall 2009 North American tour. So why no mention of their brand new record Under the Sign of the Iron Cross, which comes out next Tuesday, November 23rd on Metal Blade? No good reason. No good reason at all.

So here’s our attempt to rectumfry the situation; Metal Underground is streaming the entire new album right now, and here we are telling you about it. Because you don’t want to let a slice of fast-paced Dutch death metal this good pass pass you by, and neither do we. Please forgive us! Here’s singer/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.

Right? Right. Now go listen, and if you like what you’re hearing then pre-order Under the Sign of the Iron Cross here.
