GOD DETHRONED releases new album, ‘Illuminati’, worldwide

Today (February 7th), God Dethroned have unleashed their new album, Illuminati, via Metal Blade Records. For a preview of Illuminati, a video for the new single “Book of Lies” (the third of three interconnected short movies) can be viewed at:

God Dethroned guitarist/vocalist Henri Sattler comments: “‘Illuminati‘ is out today and we can’t wait for everyone to check out the album! We are also launching a third video today for ‘Book of Lies’, which connects the storyline of the two previous singles/videos and hopefully is a track that will spark your interest in listening to the full album! Also, we are soon to start a heavy touring campaign: First it’s three special album release shows this weekend, then next week we start a first European tour with Obscura, and afterwards it’s festival time, but also another European tour of which we will reveal details soon. We look forward to seeing you at one of the upcoming shows this year!”

Read on for what press have to say about the critically acclaimed Illuminati!

“Henri Sattler and his crew now return in top shape and deliver an album that belongs to the highlights of their discography!” – Deaf Forever

“But above all, it’s the dominating and extravagantly fabulous melodies, which make the eleventh full-length by God Dethroned a very, very special one.” – Legacy

“…a must-buy for every black/death fan.” – Metal Wani

“The result is that ‘Illuminati’ is a damned fun and damned fine record, filled with hooks and hate, and certainly a welcome addition to my […] list of melodic blackened death metal knockouts.” – Last Rites

To celebrate the release of Illuminati, God Dethroned will be hosting three release shows this weekend in Germany and the Netherlands. Starting next week, European fans can also catch them on tour with Obscura, Thulcandra, and Fractal Universe. See below for all dates!
